2008 Highlander Maint Req'd reset proceedure

This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

how to reset the oilchange reset buttom on an avalon limitted 2008


On a 2010 this is how you reset the maintenance due light. Turn the ignition switch to the on position to make sure it is showing odometer not trip (A) or (B) then turn ignition switch off. Hold the odometer button in while turning the ignition switch back to the on position (do not start the engine) and continue to hold until the odometer shows all zero's..oooooo then the maintenance due light should go off when the engine is started.

Make sure the odometer is set to odometer and not tripmeter.

Stick the key in the ignition. Hold down the odometer reset button, turn the key to the on position(don't start the truck) and hold it until the lines are gone..

You will automatically see a few lines in the odometer that will start to go away. Once all the lines are gone, the counter has been reset.

2008 toyota highlanger,TRAC,VSC and check engine lights came on after the key was in the egnition for an extented time, they came up right after i started the vehicule (wich was a ruff start because it drained the battery a bit), i tried pushing the button but it didn't work. What do i do?


I had this happen just last week, after I took my Highlander in for an oil change, though not at a dealer's. I reset the "maintenace required" display, and it solved the problem. While holding the Trip Odometer A button, press and hold the Engine Start button. The display should say "resetting maintenance," and warning lights should go off.
