It's basically a type of oil change life/ idiot lamp that will come on briefly after 4K just after startup and then stay on steady after 5K reached after reset procedure done after each oil change.
The explanation of it's purpose and the reset procedure should be covered in your owner's manual.
I remember resetting some Toyota maint req lamp by holding in the trip reset button ,turning on the ignition key ,the mileage indicator appears as a row of flashing segments that gradually disappear and your done.
If that doesn't work ,try releasing the trip switch momentarily,just after turning the key to run position and then redepress and hold the trip reset button in (before the cluster completes it's lamp prove out)

Maint required light just came on .....2008 toyota camry....is this a bad sign or a minimal problem


The maintenance required light lets you know its time for an oil change. Once the oil is changed the light can be reset. The light will usually blink for a few seconds as you approach the 5,000 mile mark and then stay on steady as the 5,000 mile mark is reached or surpassed.

My 2006 Toyota Camry won't start. Battery seems okay since all dashboard lights come on as expected. I get a slight chirping sound when I turn the key. Is is the starter moter?


Better try getting a boost first. The starter takes far more power than all your lights and fans put together. After that you can determine what caused it to go dead.

Maintenance required light is on in my 2008 Toyota Camry


You can take it back and have them reset the light that they for got to do. Or check your manual and do it your self. I think you push the trip setter and hold it until the dashes disappear. Or go to trip a and then push and hold.

How can the maintenance required light be reset following an oil change?


Here's how you reset your oil maintenance light.

To reset the light,
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".

2002 toyota engine, oil sludgecaused my car to stopped and now needs overhaul


Complain to Toyota, they are fixing some of these car for free. Here is the explanation and the list of problem vehicles.

Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

  • 1996-2001 Toyota 3.0 L 1MZ V6
  • 1996-2001 Toyota 5SFE I4
  • Feb 23, 2009 | 1995 Toyota Camry
