The maintenance light is to let you know when your recommended services such as oil change, filter replacements and so on are due. if you want to reset the light i think all you have to do is push in and hold the trip odometer peg until the light resets or about 10 to 15 seconds. The light should flash a few times then go out. Do this with the key in the ignition and in the "on" position without the engine running. Then start the car and make sure the light is gone.

Abs /vsa light on


A direct-sensing type Tire pressure warning system is used in TPMS
If the vehicle continues to be driven with 1 or more of the 4 inflated to a low air pressure that could cause problems during driving, this system will illuminate the tire pressure warning light to inform the driver of the low air pressure.
In addition to that, this system directly senses the air pressure of each Tire through Tire pressure warning system valve & transmitter that are attached to each wheel.
Before you could proceed you are required to please retrieve the error codes and freeze frame data to get to know about the problem.

How do i reset low tire indicator on rav 4 2010, i just changed tire


The TPMS lamp should go out when the proper air pressure in all tires is detected. Too much pressure will cause it to light also. The low threshold is somewhere in the 24-27lb range, dunno what the upper limit is, but one member at R4W had 44lbs, IIRC, and the lamp wouldn't go out until he dropped it back down. Some members run 38lbs and get away with it, but I run the recommended 32lbs and don't have any problems. Out of spec tire pressure does not cause the maintenance required lamp or the MIL to light up, see page 161 of the owner's manual. The maintenance required lamp will light up every 5000 miles as a reminder to change the engine oil, see page 136 of the manual for reset instructions.

Getting the low trie light to go off


Check the air in the tire. There is a reset button on the fuse pannel. Turn car to run position, hold reset (red button). Low tire light will flash 3 times & then go off. This should solve the problem.

If your brakes need changing will your maintenance required light come on?


No the maintenance light comes on at a set mileage interval to remind you that your vehicle will be do for oil or some other scheduled maintenance. Low brakes will not trigger the light. If there is a serious problem with the braking system it will trigger the red brake light on the dash.

Reset low tire light


If your TPMS light is lit solid, air your tires to proper pressure (32-35psi) then drive 1/4 mile and it will reset itself.

If your tire pressure light is FLASHING, you have a fault in the TPMS system and require a trip to a shop to find out what is wrong.
