There is a reset button, on the dash where the tac/speedometer is there is a reset button. Follow these steps to reset. Turn ignition on to the acc or first click( not with lights on in the dash) hold reset button down for 10-15 seconds, still holding rest button down turn key to the next click (with out starting) hold for an additional 10-15 seconds, then release and start vehicle light should go out. Good Luck Please leave me a fix-ya comment if I fixed-ya thanks.

Maintenance required light is on, 2 weeks ago changed motor oil, 43,800 miles, do not have any idea what is the next service, maybe you can help me whith this problem. thank you


1. To reset MAINT reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to OFF position with odometer reading showing. Turn ignition switch to ON position while holding down trip meter RESET button.
2. Hold trip meter RESET button down for at least 5 seconds. Odometer should indicate "000000" and MAINT reminder light goes out.

My Highlander has the (MAINT REQUEST) ligth on. how I can reset it?


The maint req'd light goes on when your vehicle is due for an oil change. If you've recently changed your oil - sometimes your mechanic won't reset the built in tracking settings for when you are due for another oil change. Here's how you can reset it.

Turn ignition to "ACC" and press the odometer button until the display reads actual mileage (not Trip A or B).
Turn ignition off.
Hold the same button down that you used in step 1.
While holding the button, turn ignition to 'ON'.
The 'Maint Reqd' light should blink and go out.
Done!

Why maint req´d driver in my car lit? what´s it the problem?


Maintenance required light is a reminder to change the oil. if you have had the oil changed within the last 3000 miles its likley the people that did the oil change didnt reset the light, if im not mistaken, to reset that light turn the car to the key on engine off position and hold the odometer button down until the light blinks and goes away

I have an 06 with the display, you should have a button with MAINT to the far right side of the control center.

Turn the key on ACC,press MAINT button on right end, press down on the "enter" button then press "enter", you may need to move the :"enter" button up but usually it will be on the reset, (Reset) will be lit yellow when ready for you to press the "enter" button to reset it. You should see the Driving Distance bar dissappear/reset to the starting point.

Works for oil changes & tire rotation. You can set the specific distance with the same control, moving it left to right when it is in the "change" position.

good luck
