My 4 runner displays shows maint. what can i do to solve this problem? v6 2003 engine 20LB i bought it with this problem one week nothing,i want to change oil motor and filter,air filter...but i dont...

The "MAINTANENCE" light on the dash is nothing more than a timer of sorts, every 5000 miles to be precise. Whenever you bring your Toyota in for a service, one of the last things they do is reset the MAINT light. There's a sequence to doing this yourself:

With the car key on ACC, set your odometer on mileage(not trip a or b) then turn ket off. then hold they button that switchs from odo and trip, then turn the key back to acc. while you are holding it down you will notice the maintenance light blink and go out. and then you are done.

Had 1st oil change on 08 4Runner @ 4980 miles. "Maint" light came on at 5000 miles indicating oil needs changed. How do I turn it off?

If you have your owners manual, should be a section in there on resetting the light. You may also want to try this method... With the ignition off press and hold the button for the trip meter reset, while still holding this, turn the ignition to the on position (don't start vehicle), you should see either the maint light start flashing (if this is what happens then it should go off after flashing a few times, then you can release button and start vehicle) or there should be a few lines where the mileage shows up, these lines will flash and start to countdown and disappear, then it should show "oil life 100%". Hope this helps

The maint light is on I have a 2004 toyota 4 runner sport

This is basically your change oil light. When you have your oil change done, the shop should have reset the light for you.
To reset the light, try doing this:
Turn the ignition on
Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
1.Turn the key off
2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
Your'e done.

If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".
