Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since you are sure it has correct fluid, you probably need to reset the light. Refer to your owner manual for directions. You can try unplugging the battery for a second if you can't find the reset or you can unplug the fuse. Thanks for using FixYa and have a good day.

Hi there.
When you say Maint light stays on , if you mean oil pressure light etc then it could be either oil light switch or wire has come off or fuse or the wrong grade of oil if only comes on when hot.
So check on the maint list to see what should be done and then recheck what was done .

Oil light flashing on dash

check for proper oil level in engine with dipstick if ok.then install mechanical oil pressure gauge on oil pressure sending unit to verify proper oil pressure, if pressure ok. then replace the sending unit/sensor, if pressure not ok. , you may need to remove engine oil pan to check for restriction on oil pick-up tube screen. if ok replace pump. but also check clearance on mains and connecting rods.

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
