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.

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.

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.

theres no problem, its set to come on every7500 miles just to remind you to do the service, like oil changes etc, all you do is make sure mileage is showing in display, then turn key off, then push the button that shows the trip mileage hold that button in then turn key on but dont start truck make sure dash lights come on like when starting,okay continue to hold button may take 15 -25 seconds until you see maint light go off, done.hope this helps.

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles

Change the auto trans fluid every 30,000 miles

Change the coolant at 60,000 miles

When do I change the transmission fluid in my 2003 Highlander?


If the fluid smells burnt or is black, replace fluid. Manufacturer suggests that you inspect it at every 30,000 mile interval. I would suggest having it flushed every 75,000 miles as a normal maintenence.
