How To Turn Maintenance Light Off Toyota


If you own a Toyota, you may have seen the "Maintenance Required" light come on your dashboard. This light indicates that it is time for your vehicle to receive an oil change or other service to keep it running at its best. Fortunately, the turn off process for this light is relatively simple and can be done in a few steps.

First, ensure that the service indicated by the light has been completed. This can either be done by a certified mechanic or by yourself if you have the necessary knowledge and equipment. Once the service has been completed, the maintenance light should be reset.

Resetting the maintenance light can be done in two ways. The first way requires a trip to the dealership, where they will reset the light using a diagnostic tool. The second way is to reset the light yourself. This can be done by following the steps below:

  • Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position without starting the engine.
  • Press and hold down the odometer reset button, located on the instrument panel.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the "Off" position.
  • Release the odometer reset button.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position.
  • The "Maintenance Required" light should now be off.

Resetting the maintenance light is an easy process that can be done in a few steps. It is important to remember that it does not reset the maintenance schedule, and the light will come back on when it is time for the next service. By following the steps above or taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic, you can easily turn off the maintenance light on your Toyota.
