Question about 2003 Toyota 4Runner
Turn ignition on, don’t start the engine, just ignition on, press the odometer button in and hold in. (make sure your odometer is reading the actual mileage, not the trip meter)/ Turn ignition off while still holding odometer button in. Turn ignition on again, still holding odometer button in, the odometer reading will display short dashed lines like this: ------. Keep holding the button in. Watch as the dashed lines begin to decrease and finally disappear. The odometer then should return to reading out the mileage again, and the maintenance light will not come back on. At least not till you reach another 5000 miles. It is designed to come on and bug you as you reach 5000 mile intervals. Resetting this maintenance light will in no way shape or form hurt your Toyota. This "maintenance" light is a clever way to get you to see the Toyota service department.
If still the problem persists then perform the following procedure:
The O2 Sensor may not be securely attached. Check it and plug it all the way in.
Re-calibrate the zero point calibration for the yaw rate and deceleration sensors.
The calibration, by the way, is simply a matter of telling the 4Runner VSC/TRAC computer "your yaw rate and deceleration rate are currently zero" and to save the associated values. Then the output from the sensors can be interpreted correctly.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance if needed.
