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

I have 2006 Toyota Crolla since three days the maint reqd light is on could you please advise me on this ? best regards Sultan from Afghanistan


The maintenance required light just means that some sort of scheduled maintenance needs to be done. Most of the time it just means you need an oil/filter change. Your owner's manual will list what maintenance is required based on your milage. This light is not the same as the Check Engine light which means that something is wrong with the emissions system.

My maint. light just came on yesterday and it blinks 4 times then goes away is their something wrong or does it need to be reset. I did hit a small pothole could that be the problem?


look at the mileage on your odometer, then look in the owners manual for the maint required for that mileage. when the maint is done, the light will be reset by the person that performed the maint.

My Maint Req light is blinking when I turn the car on. What does this mean?


There are manufacturer recomended service/maintence requirements at
certain mileage intervals. These are programed into the cars computer.
The light is to remind you, that you have reached or close to one of these intervals. There should be a maint. schedule with the owners
manual, that describes the type of service required, at your mileage.
If you just want to turn off the light. Stop by any major parts store and
they will clear the code. Usually for free. Hope this helps.

Maitnance req. light is on


Its time for an oil change! Mainly preventative maintenance...Have them read any codes in the ECU to see what may be wrong. They will reset the lights.....or.....
1. With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
2. Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
3. Turn the key to OFF.
4. Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. At the same time, turn the key back to "On".
5. Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

Es 330. maint required light on! wat to do


The maintenance light is preset to come on at certain mileage marks by the automaker. The light is prompting the owner to have service completed that's in the owners manual or by contacting the dealership. For example, at 30,000 miles the owners manual may say that the auto needs to have oil change, transmission fluid check, rotate tires etc. Hope this helped.

Engine light on dash stays on.


There are two lights you may be getting confused. There is the check engine light and the maintanence required light. The maint req. light can be manually reset by holding down the trip meter button then turning your ignition key forward. You have to hold the button down until the light goes away.
If it is the check engine light you should run a daignostic check for the listed codes.
