Without getting your DTC's scanned, you have either a bad speedo sensor, or, and this is my take on this; a broken wire at the speedo sensor on the transmission. This is a FixYa.

1992 toyota 4runner sr5 speedometer stopped working and check engine light illuminates


If you have someone check the engine computer for trouble codes, you'll probably find a code for the speed sensor in the transmission.

Transmission speed sensor


You could have a faulty speedometer/odometer combination meter causing a false Vehicle Speed Sensor error.
My 1998 Sienna had the following symptoms:
- Speedometer and odometer failed intermittently
- The check engine light would come on and I would get a p0500 code in the OBDII.
- The cruise control would stop working at the same time the speedometer failed.
There is a speed sensor in each one of the tires and they feed the speed information to the ABS ECU. From the ABS ECU the speed signal goes to the speedometer/odometer combination meter, and from there it goes to the Engine Control Module and to the Cruise Control ECU. I could see a signal coming into the speedometer/odometer, but no signal going out. Replacing the speedometer/odometer combination meter fixed the problem.

I changed oil on my 2006 Tacoma pick up, how do I turn off my maint light. Tks John


Try this procedure.

1. Turn the ignition key up one notch. (The dash lights will not be on)

2. Press and hold down the Trip Meter Button next to the odometer.

3. While continuing to press down on the Trip Meter Button turn the ignition key to the next notch or the "Run" position, the dash lights will come on but do not start the engine.

4. Continue to press down on the Trip Meter Button until the Maintenance Required light turns off.

The Maintenance Required light should now be reset.

Maint req light


That just means you're due for an oil change. they automatically come on after 5000 miles. To reset the light, put it on the odometer display in your instrument cluster. turn the key off. now push and hold the odometer/trip reset button while you turn on the key to the IGN position. You will see 5 dashes on the odometer display, which will sequencially disappear and then go back to the odometer when it's done. after your odometer shows again, you can release the odometer/trip reset button and your maintenence light should be off.

How do i reset the maintenance required light after an oil change on my 2009 Toyota Tacoma?


1. Turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position
with the odometer reading shown.
(For details, see “Odometer and two
trip meters” on page 145 in this Section.)
2. Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position
while holding down the trip meter
reset knob.
Hold down the knob for at least 5
seconds. The odometer indicates “000000”
and the light goes off.
If the system fails to reset, the light will
continue flashing.









To reset the Maintenance Lamp turn the car key to ON (not start), set your odometer on mileage (not trip a or b), then depress and hold the button that switches from odo and trip then turn key off. Turn the key back to ON, while you are holding the button down you will notice the maintenance light blink and go out. Reset is complete and you are done.


These are available in your owners manual for the vehicle.

Odometer and trip meter


If the odometer is part of the speedo head then the unit will need to be pulled out and sent out to an authorized GM repair station, there are no parts sold for it except the entire speedometer, and that is very expensive.
