Look in your owners manual and go to the section that explains the different lights and functions of the dash board. Find the reference your your maintenance reminder light and it will give you a pge in the manual to go to. Somewhere in there should be a reset procedure if you do not take your vehicle to a Scion dealer. On my HOnda, you push on the reset button that resets my mileage and hold it for 10 minutes with the key in the on position resets it. but your manual will tell you for sure.

My Highlander has the (MAINT REQUEST) ligth on. how I can reset it?


The maint req'd light goes on when your vehicle is due for an oil change. If you've recently changed your oil - sometimes your mechanic won't reset the built in tracking settings for when you are due for another oil change. Here's how you can reset it.

Turn ignition to "ACC" and press the odometer button until the display reads actual mileage (not Trip A or B).
Turn ignition off.
Hold the same button down that you used in step 1.
While holding the button, turn ignition to 'ON'.
The 'Maint Reqd' light should blink and go out.
Done!

Main reop light in dash


Hello, and welcome to FixYa.

The 'Maint Reqd' light indicates that you are due for an oil change. It will blink 4,500 miles since the light was reset at your last oil change, and stay on steady after 5,000 miles.

If you recently had an oil change, all you need to do is reset your maintenance reqd lamp. The procedure is here on this site inthe 'tips and tricks' section, and it is also in your owner's manual.

TOYOTA SIENNA MAINT REQD LITE CAME ON AFTER SCHEDULE MAINTANANCE


If the dealer/mechanic did the service early the light will come on when service is DUE. Go back to him and have it turned off. Search the web someone may have the procedure posted. Usually simple. Google "Toyota service light reset" or "Toyota Maintence light reset" Try this one
  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.

There is ligth sing that say maint reoqd what thats mean?


The "Maint Reqd" light is designed to illuminate every 5,000 miles

This is your 'oil-change-is-due' reminder light.

If you recently had the oil changed, and the light came on, the light was not reset. The light must be manually reset after each oil change; it does not reset automatically.

We hope that this helps you out..

"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.
