Reset - step 1 turn the key to the 'on' position. using the trip meter button, toggle the lcd until 'ODO' is displayed. step 2 turn the key off. now, push and hold the trip meter button. while holding the trip meter button, turn the key to 'on'. step 3 while you continue to hold the trip meter button, you will see on the lcd disply five (5) small dashes and they will begin to 'count down' rather quickly. step 4 continue holding the trip meter button and once all the dashes have been cleared, your lcd will display six zeros (000000) - release the trip meter button now - and then the lcd will display 'ODO' and your current mileage. at this time, your 'maintenance required'/oil change light has been reset.

Here is some helpful info.
The following site is one that I always use. They have FREE instruction videos to reset your srs, airbag, maintenance required, brake and other lights. Instead of paying a dealer hourly you can find info for FREE without using a scanner. Another cool thing they have is new parts from the dealer with up to 40% discount. Check it out.

SOURCE: reset maint req light

You need to scroll to the oil life selection, on your odometer. When it reaches the oil life, hold the button in until the display flashes. Then press it again and it should reset to 100% oil life. Try it with the engine running. If that doesn't work, try it with the ignition on and engine not started ( dash warning lights lit).

Reset the "MAINT REQD" Light on Toyota Sienna:

  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.

Hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Maint ReQ"D


The light is determined by the odometer. It will stay on every 7,500 miles after being reset. Usually at around 5,000 miles it will start to flash, and the flashing increases the closer you get to the 7,500 mile mark. It doesn't mean anything is wrong at all, as it is strictly a mileage minder. Brian is correct on how to reset it.

Maint req'd light was lit and do not know what is and how to fix


The '91 & newer models turned the maint, req. light on by a timer in the ECU & the ECU turns it on around 120k miles based on a timer and requires a dealer or shop visit to be reset.But it isnt going to hurt anything by being on.

Maint. req. light blinks 10 times after start up?


When a Honda Maint Req light blinks, but then stops, it is telling you to change your oil. If you don't change it, eventually, the maint req light will stay on. Here is how you reset the maint req light: 1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the odometer button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If that doesn't work, try it this way: p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana}

With the igniition off, press and hold the odometer button, turn the key to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Keep the odometer button down until the oil light begins and ends flashing. Turn the key off, and then start car to see if it worked or not.

"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.
