Note -- DO NOT depress brake pedal when selecting modes to avoid engine from starting.
On vehicles with Smart Key system, make sure smart key is in the vehicle. Pressing the Engine Start Stop switch changes the ignition switch mode as follows.
First Time -- ACC mode -- accessories on.
Second Time -- On mode, power on and all accessories on.
Third Time -- Power Off Mode, indicator light is off.
To reset Maintenance Reminder Light after engine oil replacement, place Smart Key system in power off mode with odometer reading showing. Place Smart Key system On Mode while holding down trip meter Reset button.
Hold trip meter Reset button down for at least 5 seconds. A Odometer should indicate "000000"
This procedure is for car without Smart Key system.
To reset Maintenance reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to off position with odometer reading showing. Turn ignition switch to on position while holding down trip meter reset button.
Hold trip meter reset button down for at least 5 seconds. A odometer should indicate "000000" and Maintenance reminder light goes out.
and Maintenance reminder light goes out.

Here's how you reset your oil maintenance light.

To reset the light,
Turn the ignition on
Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
1.Turn the key off
2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
Your'e done.

If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".

Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

Why does the oil maintenence light come on in my car when there is enough oil in the sump of a toyota corolla 2011


It may be the oil pressure transmitter that is faulty. Here are some generic images of various oil pressure transmitters:

It will look pretty similar to one of the above images.
If not located next to the oil filter on your car, have a look at the block. The transmitter simply screws into the engine.

Your fault is highly unlikely to be a blocked oil filter. The transmitter is very easy to change - try changing it.

My 2008 Corolla the (Maint reqd light) on and I fill power steering fluid, brake fluid and change oil before it should be change but the maint reqd light still on and I don't know what else to check.


You usually need to have the vehicle taken to the dealership so they can perforn the required maintenence. The light being on doesnt mean that there is a problem with anything, it means that the computer knows how many miles are on the car in relation to the manufacturers maintenence schedule. If you absolutely believe you have fixed the problem you can attempt to turn the light off by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10-15 minutes so the capasitors can discharge. If the computer determines that the maintenence item is not taken care of it will turn the light back on and you will need to take it to Toyota. I hope this helps you, if so would you please mark as solved and leave a rating?

Thank you!

Maintenance required light blinks every time i turn on my toyota corolla 2005 and i had oil changed at toyota service station?


Hi, it is possible it may require other schedualed services and you are being reminded. However to reset for the oil change you need to have the key off. press and hold down the milage trip reset button and turn the key on. After five seconds the odometer reads "0000000" and the light goes off. If this does not reset then let me know. There is a longer procedure for reseting the other maint services required.

Should have to turn off the key, press the odometer reset button, while holding it down, turn ignition on, not starting the car, wait for the light to reset, or show counting down in the odometer.

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
