Question about 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
I had the oil changed on my 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser on Monday March 30 after the Maintenance Required light flashed on & off a few times when I started the vehicle. The MR light continued to flash on-off when I started the vehicle after the oil change but I thought I could ignore it. However when I was driving to work this morning the MR light came on and stayed on. Does this mean I have a real problem - should I check the oil before I start the vehicle again? Is it possible that it will reset itself when I start the vehicle again? I love this vehicle but I get really annoyed with problems like this. Any suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:
Turn the key ON
Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.
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
Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.
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.
If you do NOT see the dashes, followed by the 5 zeros, start the entire procedure again, but start with the odometer set to TRIP "A". Some vehicles use Trip A instead of the ODO.
You do NOT START the vehicle at any time during the reset procedure.
If the engine starts, the procedure will not reset.
