Question about Toyota Corolla

3 Answers

I have a 2006 Toyota Corolla. After 5000 miles without an oil change the maintenance required light turns on. After getting an oil change the light will stay on unless someone does something to turn it off, which they often forget to do. How do you I turn off the light or indicate to the car that an oil change has occurred? Thanks for your help.

    I already looked in the user's manual and did not find the information I needed - that's why I'm asking here!

1) Get into the car and close the driver's door

2) Put your key in the ignition, but don't turn it.

3) With your left hand, press and hold the odometer reset button (its somewhere near the odometer)

4) With your right hand, turn the key to the position right before start while still holding down the reset button with your left hand.

5) While still holding the reset button, you will see your odometer show up as 000000, keep holding the button until all the zeros disappear.

6) After all the zeros are gone, your odometer will show back up and the "Maint REQ" light will go away.

If you need more detailed instructions, consult your owner's manual. The procedure is outlined there with pictures.

Simple fix disconnect your car battery for 3 min and the light will turn off. there should be a toggle setting for your change oil light that you interact with in the same way that you would for your odometer and tripometer. the battery disconnect is a sure fire fix though. goodluck.

    Thanks for your suggestion - I would prefer the option where I do something with the odometer instead of disconnecting the battery - Thanks.

Look in the owners manual for specific instructions. Generally there will be a push button in the underhood fuse panel which much be depressed while the ignition switch is on, but not running.
Many of these routine issues can be resolved by first looking in the owners manual instead of asking someone else to do it for you.

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??



  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.


  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

What does the maintenance required light mean? What are potential problems and how much would they cost to fix?


Time to change the oil. The light won't go away by itself; you need to reset it. To do it, look into the owners manual. Once is off, the light will turn on back again once the car reaches 5,000 more miles.

What does it mean that my maintenance required light is on (2005 corolla)?


The light comes on every 10,000 miles to remind you to change oil and other required service. There is a procedure to reset the light, do a search on Toyota Maintenance Required light.

How to make the service engine light go out after a 5000 mile oil change.


These instructions were posted to reset the Maint Required light on a Toyota Sienna. Process should be the same for your Corolla. Best of luck and hope this answers your question.
Greg

  1. With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so

Maintenance required light on for 2005 toyota corrola (no manual


I had the same thing happen. The person that serviced your car forgot to reset the warning light. Put the key in the ignition, press down on the odometer reset button and hold it, then turn the ingnition on. This should reset it, so it will go off again in 5000 miles. This is what I did.

Maintainance Check


Our 2006 Corolla has a "Maintenance Required" light in addition to the "Check Engine" one. MR light comes on every 5000 miles telling you to change oil and whatever's in the book. To turn it off,
Set Cluster Display to ODOMETER (not Trip A or Trip B)
Ignition Off
Hold Cluster Display button down
Ignition On, Continue to Hold button down
Odometer will change to "----------" then return to Miles Display
Light goes Out
