Here is the proceedure:

Turn the key to ON

Observe the odometer, ensure that it says "ODO", and your total mileage travelled, not "trip A" or "trip B"

Turn the key off.

Press & hold the black tripmeter reset button, hold it until advised to release

Thurn the key to the ON position (do NOT start the car)

Observe the odometer.

You should see 5 dashes, then 4 dashes, then 3 dashes, then 2 dashes, then 1 dash, and then 5 zeros; and then whatever mileage you started with will be redisplayed.

Release the trip meter reset button

Your reset proceedure is complete.

Maint req. lite blinks 8 times then goes off and stays off when driving. cannot change it.


what this means is that you need to change your oil, it will blink then go away until the required mileage is up, then it will stay on,
change the oil, and have the person who does it clear it.

Light on screen says REQ. MAINT.


Could be as easy as your car is due for an oil change (if that hasn't been done within the required interval (check your owners manual). If that is not the problem, I suggest taking it to a mechanic that you trust, that has a computer that he can hook to your car to find out exactly what the problem is........ As it could be quite a few different things

Maint req'd light was lit and do not know what is and how to fix


The '91 & newer models turned the maint, req. light on by a timer in the ECU & the ECU turns it on around 120k miles based on a timer and requires a dealer or shop visit to be reset.But it isnt going to hurt anything by being on.

Maint. req. light blinks 10 times after start up?


When a Honda Maint Req light blinks, but then stops, it is telling you to change your oil. If you don't change it, eventually, the maint req light will stay on. Here is how you reset the maint req light: 1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the odometer button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If that doesn't work, try it this way: p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana}

With the igniition off, press and hold the odometer button, turn the key to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Keep the odometer button down until the oil light begins and ends flashing. Turn the key off, and then start car to see if it worked or not.

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla. After 5000 miles without an oil change the "Maintenance Required Light" turns on. After getting an oil change, the light will stay on unless someone does something...


1) Get into the car and close the driver's door

2) Put your key in the ignition, but don't turn it.

3) With your left hand, press and hold the odometer reset button (its somewhere near the odometer)

4) With your right hand, turn the key to the position right before start while still holding down the reset button with your left hand.

5) While still holding the reset button, you will see your odometer show up as 000000, keep holding the button until all the zeros disappear.

6) After all the zeros are gone, your odometer will show back up and the "Maint REQ" light will go away.

If you need more detailed instructions, consult your owner's manual. The procedure is outlined there with pictures.

Check Engine light 2005 Toyota Corolla


He can't hit a switch and turn on the Check Engine Light, however there are several dozen ways a shoddy mechanic can cause that Light to come on.
Two things you can do is:
1. Disconnect the negative side of the battery and wait about 30-minutes before reconnecting. Check to see if that Light comes back. If not great! If it does:
2. Find out why the Check Engine Light is on. There should be a code that the computer has set. Take it to Autozone or other auto parts stores, where they can hook your vehicle up (for free) to a DRB Scan Tool to eloborate or extrapolate what the Code(s) are.
The real question is if the work the mechanic did caused this. Have their work checked.

"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.
