SOURCE: Could yoy please provide me with a fuse box layout

On page 301-302 of the owner's manual there is a LIMITED fuse box layout. Fuses are located on the driver's side in the dash on the side and under the hood next to the battery.

SOURCE: everything resetting to zero

Low battery voltage. 11.5V min. For both radio and instrument cluster to cut out like that points to low voltage. Does your clock reset to 12:00 too? A scan readout is needed for assessing your problem. I'm sure there are DTC's stored in your ECU memory.

Toyota " Maint Req'd " Light Reset Procedure


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 (do not turn the key to Start)

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
.
NOTE: Newer cars have a slightly different procedure. The reset starts on the "TRIP A" setting, as opposed to the ODO setting. Depending on the year of your car, one or the other will work.

Hope this helps!
If this does help you, a 4-thumbs rating, or a 'VERY HELPFUL' rating would be greatly appreciated.

How to turn off the maintance required light


Turn the key to the on position,but do not start it. Make sure the odometer is set to the actual mileage and not the trip mileage.
Now turn the key back to the off position then press and hold the trip mileage reset button. While still holding the trip reset button down, turn the key to the on position. Continue holding the trip mileage reset button while the mileage flashes rows of zeros until the actual mileage appears again. Release the button and that should reset your maintenance light.
Hope this helps but if not please let me know.
If it does please give a rating thanks and good luck.

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.
