what does "vehicle’s date-of-first-use for a MIL (check engine light) “ON” " mean? and does anyone think I still fall under this warranty policy with about 10 days left in the year?

thanks
Date of first use means the day the original owner bought the car, got the keys from the dealer and drove off the lot. Your warranty would expire 10 years from that day, not the end of the year.

My mother's 2001 Rav4 with only 81K miles has this issue now. I've taken this to the dealer and they refused the 150K / 10 year extended warranty repair. Is there anything else I can do? My parents are old and do not know anything about cars. They had taken this car to the dealership for service (they spent around 3k back in 2013 for a bunch of repairs) and this service bulletin was never mentioned. I have lost all trust in Toyota and I believe this will be the last one for our family. Any help would be much appreciated.
1. Remove the ECM.
2. Send it to Check Engine, Inc. in Brooklyn -> Service List
3. Get the ECM back in a few days and re-install it into the RAV.

The total cost is about $250.
