You usually need to have the vehicle taken to the dealership so they can perforn the required maintenence. The light being on doesnt mean that there is a problem with anything, it means that the computer knows how many miles are on the car in relation to the manufacturers maintenence schedule. If you absolutely believe you have fixed the problem you can attempt to turn the light off by disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10-15 minutes so the capasitors can discharge. If the computer determines that the maintenence item is not taken care of it will turn the light back on and you will need to take it to Toyota. I hope this helps you, if so would you please mark as solved and leave a rating?

Thank you!

Main reop light in dash


Hello, and welcome to FixYa.

The 'Maint Reqd' light indicates that you are due for an oil change. It will blink 4,500 miles since the light was reset at your last oil change, and stay on steady after 5,000 miles.

If you recently had an oil change, all you need to do is reset your maintenance reqd lamp. The procedure is here on this site inthe 'tips and tricks' section, and it is also in your owner's manual.

To reset the system. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off. If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

"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.
