How to Reset the Toyota Maintenance Light

Dashboard Lights


Your new Toyota is a sophisticated modern vehicle equipped with a variety of features designed to alert you to operational problems and the need for professional attention. One of these features is the Toyota maintenance light. An illuminated Toyota maintenance light might be startling, but there’s no need to worry, as this is your vehicle’s way of telling you that it’s time for service. For example, if it’s been 5,000 miles since you last had your oil changed, the Toyota “maintenance required” light will come on to inform you that you’re due for this crucial service soon.

While you should never ignore a lit-up Toyota maintenance light, it’s relatively easy to reset it. As soon as you schedule your service appointment at Hanlees Fairfield Toyota, follow these steps to reset the Toyota maintenance light.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Resetting the Toyota “Maintenance Required” Light

Prior to resetting the Toyota maintenance light, you need to understand why it came on in the first place. Consult your owner’s manual and maintenance schedule to see if an oil change, tire rotation, battery check, or other service is needed so you can get it scheduled as soon as possible and ensure your vehicle’s performance on Vacaville and Vallejo roads. Now, you’re ready to reset the Toyota “maintenance required” light:

  1. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to the ON position, but do not start your vehicle.
  2. Find the trip reset button by the odometer. Hold and press the button until Trip A shows up on the center screen.
  3. As you keep holding the reset button, switch the key back to the OFF position.
  4. Now, switch the key to the ON position again.
  5. Continue pressing the trip reset button until the odometer reads 0. And that’s all it should take to reset the Toyota maintenance light!
