Yes you can reset at home:

2008 Highlander Maint Req'd reset proceedure


This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Showed originally 226,335 miles. overnite when turned on, odometer now has reset showing T_ _86.6 miles.


Most newer trucks and suv's have a digital odometer. the miles odometer and trip odometer are combinded. By pressing the little button that patrudes from the instument cluster will show you the orignal 226,335 miles. When you press and hold the button while the T__86.6 is displayed will reset the trip odometer. Some people use the trip odometer to monitor times between oil changes and tire rotations.

2005 lexu 330, turn off maintenance light


1. With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
2. Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
3. Turn the key to OFF.
4. Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. At the same time, turn the key back to "On".
5. Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

page 77 of the 2004 Lexus rx330 handbook...
(you will find the answer you are looking for in resetting your maintenance light.)
with the odometer reading visible, (not trip A or trip B..) turn off engine.

While keeping Odo/trip button depressed, turn ignition back on (not starting the engine) You will see dashes (instead of numbers) on your odometer disappearing one at a time. it will be replaced by 0's (zeros).. Release the Odo/trip button and your original mileage will come up....
And your done..... until the next oil change.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

Engine service required message


If you want to reset the light/message:

Close all the doors, booth, hood etc. hatches,

1. Make sure you have Trip odometer 1 (T1) selected.
2. Turn the ignition key to 'I'-position.
3. Press the trip odometer reset - keep it down.
4. Turn the key to 'II'.
5. Wait till the service light blinks a few times or you hear a 'beep'.
6.Release the trip odometer reset.
7. Turn the key back to '0' - service light is reset.

If this doesn't work, try:
a) 2. before 3. then continue as above
b) 5. Wait until the previous mileage appears again to the trip odometer.
c) 7. before 6.

You can reset the service counter at any time. Do not forget to service your car!

I have a 2008 corolla. It has an auto light when the car needs an oil change. I need to know how to reset it.


Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

Change Oil Warning won't go away.


Depends on model and features. 2009 SEL, with no rear seat entertainment:

Place ignition in "Key On, Engine Off" position, then push gas pedal to floor and release 3 times. Turn ignition off, and it should be reset.

The procedure was in the owners manual in the section about the odometer and related features.

Service req light wont turn off


You have to press the trip button until you come to the actual odometer and not the trip A and Trip B. Once your on the actual odometer screen press and hold the trip button down while at the same time turning off the engine. Then wait for a few seconds to clear. Then while still holding the trip button down turn on the ignition. The odometer will reset to all zeros and flash a few times then the maintenance light will go away.
