Turn off 10,000 mile eng light


Is it the Maintenance Required light? If so, Turn your car off - hold in the odometer and turn the key half way on. Hold for about 4 - 5 seconds. Your odometer should start blinking and your light should go out.

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.

I changed oil on my 2006 Tacoma pick up, how do I turn off my maint light. Tks John


Try this procedure.

1. Turn the ignition key up one notch. (The dash lights will not be on)

2. Press and hold down the Trip Meter Button next to the odometer.

3. While continuing to press down on the Trip Meter Button turn the ignition key to the next notch or the "Run" position, the dash lights will come on but do not start the engine.

4. Continue to press down on the Trip Meter Button until the Maintenance Required light turns off.

The Maintenance Required light should now be reset.

Maint req light


That just means you're due for an oil change. they automatically come on after 5000 miles. To reset the light, put it on the odometer display in your instrument cluster. turn the key off. now push and hold the odometer/trip reset button while you turn on the key to the IGN position. You will see 5 dashes on the odometer display, which will sequencially disappear and then go back to the odometer when it's done. after your odometer shows again, you can release the odometer/trip reset button and your maintenence light should be off.

2006 Toyota Tacoma Low Mileage or Not...Spark Plug Life


24 mpg on the highway is actually pretty good for that truck. at 48000 miles and being 3 years old its time for plugs, air filter, and fuel filter if available. thats cheap maintenance for now. but if very self conscious, run some fuel injector cleaner first, then change the plugs, because any octane booster or fuel injector cleaner can run the risk of fouling out a plug, by creating a hotter spark then what, normal gas does. the burn is hotter.

How do i reset the maintenance required light after an oil change on my 2009 Toyota Tacoma?


1. Turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position
with the odometer reading shown.
(For details, see “Odometer and two
trip meters” on page 145 in this Section.)
2. 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.









To reset the Maintenance Lamp turn the car key to ON (not start), set your odometer on mileage (not trip a or b), then depress and hold the button that switches from odo and trip then turn key off. Turn the key back to ON, while you are holding the button down you will notice the maintenance light blink and go out. Reset is complete and you are done.


These are available in your owners manual for the vehicle.

NEEDS AN OIL CHANGE. YOU CAN RESET IT YOUR SELF. HOLD IN THE "TRIP" BUTTON AND TURN THE KEY ON (DO NOT START IT) 5 DASHES APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR 1 AT A TIME THEN 5 "0"'S AND YOUR DONE. SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO BE ON "TRIP A" BEFORE YOU START

30000 mile service


Yes.
My dealership charges about $325.00 for a 30K. Please describe what services that they are providing that would justify $500.00. That is out of line, IMHO.
