The red triangle warning light just came on. What does it mean?


All it means is 5000 miles have passed since the oil change reminder was reset. You can reset it your self. Look in the Camry Hyrbid Owners Manual on Page 148 for the Resetting the engine oil maintenance data procedure. Make sure you have the A trip odometer showing when you follow along.

Maintenance Required Soon light came on. What does this mean? I just had my vehicle taken in for an oil change last week and everything was in great condition.


"Maintenance Required" is an automatic indicator which runs on your mileage. Once serviced the counters need to be reset. It could be that when you had the oil change the service centre did not reset the computer (they forgot, ps. this is not somethuing you can DIY) or you did not take it to a Toyota service centre, in which case they did not have the electronic gadget needed to do the reset. Get it back to Toyota or at least someone who can do the reset.

I had this happen just last week, after I took my Highlander in for an oil change, though not at a dealer's. I reset the "maintenace required" display, and it solved the problem. While holding the Trip Odometer A button, press and hold the Engine Start button. The display should say "resetting maintenance," and warning lights should go off.

Remove Oil maintenance required message on 2008 Toyota Highlander


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!

Finding oil filter on 2007 toyota highlander hybrid


The filter access door is located under vehicle to the right near the front (about 24 inches forward of the oil drain plug). By removing two 10-mm hex nuts, you will see a cap that is removed using a ratchet extension. You will need a pair of Channel Lock pliers that is able to spread to at least 4 inches across to unscrew the filter housing. If it is similar to the 2008 you will need to keep the old housing and just replace the paper filter and "o" rings.

Good Luck
