These instructions were posted to reset the Maint Required light on a Toyota Sienna. Process should be the same for your Corolla. Best of luck and hope this answers your question.
Greg

  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so

You can try bringing it to a garage to have them reset it for you, cause sometimes you can reset the light by holding the program button on the radio as you turn the key, some you pump the brake pedal 3 to 4 times before you turn the key, some also will reset when you hold the odometer reset button then turn the key to start the car.
there are so many ways that these car companys make to reset the lights, you should call the service dept. for toyota and just ask them. they will tell you right over the phone what you will need to do, if none of the things work, then you will need to bring it to a shop to have them reset the code using their computer.
hope this helps you out.

Put the key in, go to acc, hold the mileage/trip button and watch the numbers. they will all go to zeros then one after another will go away, when it is done start car and light is gone.

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??



  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.


  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

I began using quaker state higher mileage motor oil in my corolla . the garage says it will go 5000 miles between oil changes. do you agree?


Yes I agree. 5000 miles between oil changes is very common. But don't go past that. Todays oils are much more refined than the old 10w30 I used back in the 1970's and 80's.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How frequently are you supposed to change the oil and filter on a 91 Toyota Corolla?


OEM probably says 5000 miles, but keeping it in good condition means trying to stay close to 3000 mile changes-it's old, be nice to it!

How many quarts does the sienna 2006 needs when perfoming oil cha


Exactly five quarts to do an oil change on this van assuming you are also replacing the oil filter.
How long between oil changes is typically recommended to be 5000 miles by Toyota. The van's service reminder light comes on at 5000 miles just for this purpose. To increase that interval is your choice.

The oil light is reset by the tech on each service. It will not go off by itself. As far as the check engine light goes you now have a code stored and you will need to get it before we can begin to diagnose. Only thing you can do is make sure the gas cap is on and the seal is no cracked or distorted. This could set a code

I purchased a 2006 Toyota Corolla this past June, and I love it. A light came on this morning, and I don't know what it's a picture of. It's on the far left, and it's not the maintenance light. I'm...


I suggest review your 2006 Toyota Corolla Owners Manual (page 5) for details about cluster and warning lights. You have the CE/LE, S, XRS models for the light location.

I am assuming that is the light of "service" only 450 for reaching the limit, and is one advise.

I really hope helped with this; remember rated this help. Good luck.

Why does my maintenance required light flashes 6 times after starting my 2005 toyota corolla?


its to let you know that its almost time to change your oil. it will stay on when the car has reached 5000 miles since your last oil change or since the light was last reset.

Maintainance Check


Our 2006 Corolla has a "Maintenance Required" light in addition to the "Check Engine" one. MR light comes on every 5000 miles telling you to change oil and whatever's in the book. To turn it off,
Set Cluster Display to ODOMETER (not Trip A or Trip B)
Ignition Off
Hold Cluster Display button down
Ignition On, Continue to Hold button down
Odometer will change to "----------" then return to Miles Display
Light goes Out
