MAINT REQD light won't reset

I've followed the procedure to reset the light many times with no success. After each attempt what does show on the display is " 5 on" ! can you tell me what that means.......i'm sure the car is trying to tell me something.

Thank you

    2008 Scion xD. Using the manual directions results in nothing more than a sore finger. If you press and hold the trip reset while turning to the on position and then wait for a few secs, you get the S-on. Press the reset again and you get S-off but there is no change in themaint light.

The manual is wrong you need to have it on the TRIP meter A instead of ODO.

I am a Scion Service Manager. Really.
Here is how you do it:

Turn the key to the ON position (do not start it)

Observe the odometer display (it MUST be set to "ODO"),
and observe the mileage...
(Note that some Toyota & Scion cars utilize the "Trip A" setting)

Press in and HOLD the trip reset stick; do not release it.

Turn the key on.

Observe the odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, 3, 2, and then 1, followed by 5 zeros, and then, whatever mileage you observed when you started will return.

Release the button. The indicator is norw reset.

What this does: It adds 5K miles to the odometer counter.

To answer the other question... the 5 -on is really S -on and the S = sweep. When start the xD it does a gauge sweep to calibrate the needles. When you get to that menu and you see S -on release the button and press it again to S -off, press it a 3rd time and it 'on' again. If you set it to 'off ' & then turn the key off and then start the car you see that you needles don't sweep the gauge. Set back to 'on' to have them sweep, set to off it won't.

SOURCE: MAINT REQD light won't reset

the answer is in your owners manual. But you should be able to shut it off by putting the key in the ignition, then push and hold the black button on the gauge cluster(used to select trip a), with the button depressed turn the ignition to the run position (don't start it), now wait. You will see, in the mileage screen, a count down. keep the button depressed until you see your mileage reappear. This will only take a minute to complete. good luck.

Where is the reset button to reset the service indicator light after an oil change? I see instructions on how to do it, but I don't know where the reset button is located.


Here's how you get reset the MAINT REQD light:

1) put the key to the ON position
2) press the mileage reset button on your cluster so it shows total mileage (not trip)
3) put the key to the OFF position
4) press and hold down the mileage reset button, leave it pressed
5) put the key to the ON position
6) wait until the mileage shows 000000 and you can stop pressing the ODO button

If that doesn't work, consult this

Main reop light in dash


Hello, and welcome to FixYa.

The 'Maint Reqd' light indicates that you are due for an oil change. It will blink 4,500 miles since the light was reset at your last oil change, and stay on steady after 5,000 miles.

If you recently had an oil change, all you need to do is reset your maintenance reqd lamp. The procedure is here on this site inthe 'tips and tricks' section, and it is also in your owner's manual.

TOYOTA SIENNA MAINT REQD LITE CAME ON AFTER SCHEDULE MAINTANANCE


If the dealer/mechanic did the service early the light will come on when service is DUE. Go back to him and have it turned off. Search the web someone may have the procedure posted. Usually simple. Google "Toyota service light reset" or "Toyota Maintence light reset" Try this one
  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so.

Need to reset the "Maintenance Required" light on the dashboard


Revised procedure (for Highlander)

Turn ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads actual mileage... not Trip A or B.

Turn ignition key to OFF.

Hold in the same button you used in step 1.

While holding the button in, turn ignition key to 'ON'.

The 'Maint Reqd' light should blink and go out.

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
