Question about 2006 Scion xA

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Scion Xa. The Maint Reqd light is on. Any ideas what it might be? At first it just flashed five or six times before it went away, but now when I start the car it doesn't flash or go away; it just stays on.

    Thanks, but I don't think that is the problem because I just got the oil change and everything a couple weeks ago. I can't remember if it was coming on before then or not. I'll probably just take it to a Toyota dealer and see what they say. Maybe only they can do the oil change right.

    Talking logical things to do
    Why would a Dealer be the only one to be able to
    change oil correctly & why would you be at a
    dealer for any reason. You car is 5 years old
    & out of warrantee

The car has collected a code in the computer. have a scan performed and it should guide you on what needs to be repaired.

    Yeah, getting it diagnosed seems to be the most logical thing to do.

    Matinece required light comes on when oil needs to be changed. Turn light off see page 86 on how to do it. Have to do it every time you change the oil if it is on
