I believe you need an OBDII scanner.

Welcome to the forum.

 

Yup, Bikeman982 is right - you need an OBD-II scanner to read the codes. If you are thinking of buying one - also make sure that it is also CAN protocol compliant. Previous Toyotas used an ISO protocol, then in 2005 model year Corolla - they switched to the new industry standard CAN protocol. Most scanners, now, support multiple protocols, but it is a good idea to double-check.

 

Another option is to take it to an Autozone, Advance Autoparts, or similar autoparts retailer - many will read the code for free, but not reset it (they're not supposed to erase any codes - an insurance issue).
