How to Reset the Maintenance Light on a Toyota RAV4

2023 Toyota RAV4 Interior


Your maintenance light communicates important information about your car’s health, so you remember to schedule those oil changes promptly. But, what if you want to turn the light off in the meantime? Learning how to reset the maintenance light on your Toyota RAV4 is simple, and our pros can guide you through the process. Perform your own RAV4 maintenance light reset at home, and get more tips with us at Hanlees Fairfield Toyota.



RAV4 Maintenance Light Reset Process

First, it’s important to take note when you see your RAV4 maintenance light pop on. That’s because your maintenance light lets you know exactly when you’re due for an oil change. And if you visit the service center, our team will automatically turn the light off after your service. But if you want to disable the light temporarily, here are the steps that you’ll need to follow:

  • Place your key in the ignition and turn to position one. This means the car is activate, but the engine is not on.
  • Push the trip meter reset button on the dashboard and hold for several seconds. Turn your key to position two
  • Continue to hold the button for ten seconds. If done correctly, you’ll see the light flash and beep.
  • Once the light goes off, release the button and start your car.

If the RAV4 maintenance light reset process worked, you’re good to go. Otherwise, you can try it again one or two more times. If it still doesn’t work, we recommend scheduling a service to rule out any bigger problems.

Why Should I Schedule Regular Maintenance?

If you’re like most drivers in Vacaville and Vallejo, you have a lot on your plate. So, why take time out of your busy schedule to book regular maintenance visits at Hanlees Fairfield Toyota?

  • Savings: It’s always better to catch car troubles early when they are cheaper and easier to fix. The longer you go without maintenance, the longer potential problems can grow.
  • Safety: Our technicians know your car inside and out, and they’ll make sure that it’s as safe as possible for the open roads ahead. They’ll check everything from air pressure to Toyota Safety Sense™ systems, so there are no doubts that everything is working properly.
  • Longevity: Maintenance is one of the most important factors for a car’s longevity. It’s not uncommon to find well-maintained cars on the Napa roads with 200,000 or more miles on the odometer!
