MAINT light indicates that you need to change engine oil.
You or your mechanic need to manually reset it after each oil change.

The "MAINTANENCE" light on the dash is nothing more than a timer of sorts, every 5000 miles to be precise. Whenever you bring your Toyota in for a service, one of the last things they do is reset the MAINT light. There's a sequence to doing this yourself:

With the car key on ACC, set your odometer on mileage(not trip a or b) then turn ket off. then hold they button that switchs from odo and trip, then turn the key back to acc. while you are holding it down you will notice the maintenance light blink and go out. and then you are done.

My overdrive lightis flashing on my 1991 toyota 4 runner.


means it's going out or the transmission oil will need to be changed, check the transmission fluid if it is brown and smells likes onions have the fluid changed and the filter, this may not fix it but you may get lucky, if it's the band or clutch assembly you will have to rebuild transmission.

Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

The maint light is on I have a 2004 toyota 4 runner sport


This is basically your change oil light. When you have your oil change done, the shop should have reset the light for you.
To reset the light, try doing this:
Turn the ignition on
Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
1.Turn the key off
2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
Your'e done.

If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".
