The manual has "Services" listed according to the miles on your car, like 15,000, 22.5K 30K 45K miles, these are to ensure the maximum service your can can provide. Fuel mileage, ect. The light isnt a oil gauge, its to reminding you to do the services according to milage, Its more than a oil change. Change your oil every 7.5k miles and use a good brand SM rated oil. After service the light is to be reset. Hold in the trip odometer button and while holding in, turn the key on, it should reset (off) in 5 seconds.

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.

Maintenace light blinks when car turns on


I'm not quite sure on a Toyota, But on a Acura it just meant that by mileage your getting close for your 7500 mile service. then when the light stays on that means your due for the service. also check your owners manuel.

2008 Scion TC Warning Light


This is already covered in the owner's manual, but here it is again as a quick reference.

Every 5,000 miles, a "Maintenance Required" light will blink for the first couple seconds after you start your car. It will continue to do so until it is reset. If it is not reset, than it will eventually turn on your "Check Engine" light. The purpose of the maintenance required light is to remind TC owners to change their oil. The factory recommended interval is 5,000 miles, but you can reduce the interval the light will come on to a mileage interval of your choice.

1. Before starting, make sure that the odometer is not on one of the trip mileage odometers but is displaying the standard odometer.

2. With the car off, press and hold down the odometer reset button. While still holding it, start the car.

3. The light should continue to blink for a couple seconds and than disappear. That will reset the light for another 5,000 miles.

4. The following are steps to change the interval in which the maintenance required light comes on. Right after you turn on the ignition while holding the reset button, you'll notice that the odometer display will show 5 bars. Each bar corresponds to a 1,000 miles. As each bar disappears, the interval will increase (0 bars = 5k, 1 bar = 4k). Release the reset button at the interval you desire.

Maintenance required


Hello, Has the light changed colour or do you mean just come on? if changed then this could mean a service is due. Most cars nowadays have sevice interval limits programmed into the odometer/Speedo so that when certain mileage is reached it warns you.
If the light has come on unexpectidly then maybe a fault? but judging by your brief description it does look like a service is due. I would get it to a Technician or if you are capable of servicing i.e, oil, filters and general engine overhaul then after the full service try turning the ignition on holding down the buttons (for 15 seconds or so) on the speedo face this may turn out the light.
Merry Christmas,

Maintenance Required light


The light needs to be reset. Usually after an oil change they will reset it for you. Directions for doing yourself>>> turn off the engine, press and hold the select/reset button in the instrument panel then turn the ignition switch on. Hold the button until the indicator resets (approximately ten seconds). Directions from your Honda manual. Hope this helps!
