This is a scheduled check-up programed into your cars computer. They will put your car on a computer to check the electronics. They do a service on the vehicle. Some of these maintenance are covered under your warranty. Check with you dealership to see if your covered. Dealership make most of their money when they sell you parts( its in the markup). You can call, and they will tell you the prices. You can bring in your own parts, but they will not give any warranty on the work. Usually they will change the oil, and air filter. Change the oil, and check the coolant, an add any if needed. They will make sure the injectors and throttle body is working. Basically, they will give it a complete going over. You can call, and they will tell you what is going to be done. If you don't want to spend the money, your local mechanic can reset the light. The service is up to you. I would call the dealer, and ask first, before you make your mind up. Hope this helps.

    Generally speaking, maintenance required light turns on to indicate that Oil Change is due. If you change the oil yourself ( I suggest full synthetic) to reset the light after, pres the ODO button while turning the power on until the odometer digits stops flashing.

How can i reset maintenance required light on 2007 toyota prius


Take it to your nearest Toyota service department and have the required service performed. Believe me, preventive maintenance is much cheaper than repairs that are required from part failure from a missed service.

Red light on maintenance required is on, what would that mean. Oil has been changed recently, approximately 45,000 miles on the car


the maintenance schedule is in the owners manual on the last 2 pages I believe, But here are some of the things to check the maintenance schedule on that car calls for oil changes every 3,750 miles if you primarily use the car around town or 7,500 if you do mostly highway driving without stop and go traffic. Most cars should go by the 3,750 schedule.

tire rotations should be every 7,500 miles. Brakes should be checked when the tires are rotated.

the major service on the 4 cylinder is every 30,000 miles. that includes the tune-up items of replacing spark plugs, adjusting the valves, replacing the air filter, transmission fluid, interior cabin filter and the inspections and adjustments.

the 6 cylinder does not need the valve adjustment or spark plug replacement until 105,000 miles. otherwise, the fluids and filter replacements are every 30k.

the timing belt on both the 4 cyl and the 6 cyl is 105,000. at that time the water pump and coolant are also replaced as well as the other accessory drive belts.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 3 years or 45,000 miles.

What does the maintenance required light mean


It's a service reminder light the you're do for maintenance. Check owners manual - compare your cars' miles vs maintenance required. Light needs to be reset after service is performed.

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.

Required maintenance


Replace the spark plugs at 60,000 miles

Replace the timing belt at 90,000 miles

Change the auto trans fluid every 30,000 miles

Change the coolant at 60,000 miles

That is about it. Not much else is required.
