Default check engine reset button

My daughter has a 1991 toyota camry. The check engine light has come on since
servicing and needs to be reset. The engine runs and idles perfectly. Where
do I locate the button to reset it? Thank you, Kenn

there is a diagnostics hook up port under the hood on the driver side by
the air filter housing. You need one of those old scanner machines to
erase the codes.

You can run the diagnostic code on yours without a scanner because it
is OBD-1

You connect two terminals on the DLC-1 and count the flashes on the
dash light.

Even though it seems to be running fine to you, the engine computer has
detected a fault and the best idea would be to correct it. The person
doing the servicing may have dislodged a wire somewhere - if it came on
after their work, they should remedy the condtiion.

If it started after someone worked on it they likely did something
wrong.
