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.

Hope this helps! Thanks for choosing FixYa!

How to reset change oil soon light


Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
Description
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.

What will I need to do a tune up?


The maintenance on modern cars is a lot different from years ago. Spark plugs are good for at least 50,000 miles. gas filters should be changed every 2 years. air filters checked and possibly changed once a year. Oil changes- minimum 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Read your owner's manual for recommendations. If you don't have a manual, the dealer can sometimes get you one.

The check engine light and VSC light came on in my 2005 highlander. 168,000 miles


P0420 & P0430 You need new catalytic converter
The P0430 check engine light code, like P0420, means the catalyst system efficiency is below the required threshold. Simply put, this means your car is adding more pollution into the air than it's supposed to.

On my 2000 jeep grand cherokee information center is displaying perform service i would like to know what i have to do to fix it


The perform service message tells you when you need to change oil. To reset it turn the key on and press the step button until miles to service is displayed (it should say 0 underneath). Then press and hold the reset button until it changes from 0 to 3,000 miles. Then start the vehicle. The message should no longer be displayed.

I have a used 2008 toyota highlander which did only 73,000 miles on my purchase three months ago.i have done only 2,000 miles. when do i have to go for servicing?


You should change your engine oil and oil filter at 3000 miles with a good brand engine oil then change it every 5000 miles or 6 months which ever comes first.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.

I lost the owner's manual. I saw an tv program that said changing the oil every 3,000 miles may not be necessary and to check the owner's manual. What is the frequency reccomended for the 2009 Jeep...


I think you are right. Contact a dealer and they will give you the precise exact answers you need and maybe even print the sheet with reservice requirements on it for you. They always try to earn new customers in service

Maintenance required light on 2008 camry, why is it on?


Hello. Welcome to FIxYa. Please allow us to assist you

The maintenance required light is there to remind you that your oil change is due. This light needs to be reset after the oil ic changed, it is manually reset. If you just had your oil changed, the light will not go off by itself. The light is designed to illuminate after 5,000 miles since the last reset procedure.

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota camry....is this a bad sign or a minimal problem


The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

Oil not lasting to next oil change. I have the oil changed every 3,000 miles at the dealership where I bought the car. For the last two years I have been forced to add oil before the 3,000 maintenance oil...


adding a little oil between changes is not unusual, depends on how much, are you checking your oil yourself ?? if not start !! check it in the morning once a week, if its near the full mark refuse anyone telling you to add, ( there are some stations that pay their employees more to sell oil) on the safe side put in a new pcv valve, its onle a couple of bucks
