That is a milage tripped light and is telling you to do schedualed maintenance on the vehicle.You should be able to find out how to turn it off in the owners manual.I recomend checking the maitenance part of the manual to see what it wants you to check at that particular milage you are at first.

Maintenance required light on dash


If its an orange circle flashing, push the mileage reset button with the key off, while the button is pressed turn the switch on, you don't have to start the car, and hold the button until it flashes and goes out. After that it should come on for a second when starting but should not flash anymore.

Tundra 2007 - turn off "maintenance required" light


Oil Change Reminder Lamp: Service and Repair
Engine Oil Replacement Reminder Light
This light acts as a reminder to replace the engine oil.
This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to "ON" and will go off after about a few seconds.
When you drive for about 7200 km (4500 miles) after the engine oil replacement, this light illuminates for about 3 seconds and then flashes for about
12 seconds with the ignition key turned to the "ON" position. If you continue driving without replacing the engine oil, and if the distance driven
exceeds 8000 km(5000 miles), the light will come on. The light will remain on thereafter.
If the light is flashing, we recommend that you replace the engine oil at an early opportunity depending on the driving and road conditions. If the light
comes on, replace it as soon as possible.
Resetting the system
The system must be reset after the engine oil replacement. Reset the system by the following procedure:
1. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown.
2. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the "TRIP METER" reset button.
Hold down the knob for atleast 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.
If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

This light reminds you when to replace
the engine oil.
This light will come on when the ignition

When you drive for about 8000 km (5000

If the light is flashing, we recommend that
you replace the engine oil at an early
opportunity depending on the driving and

it as soon as possible.
You need to reset the light after the engine
oil replacement. Reset the light by
