How to Reset a Toyota Maintenance Light

Lakeland drivers rely on their Toyota maintenance light to stay on top of essential services like oil changes, tire rotations, and more, so that their Camry, RAV4, or other Toyota models are up to date on their service schedules. Once you’ve had your vehicle serviced, you’ll have to turn it off yourself and reset the light so it can continue to monitor your vehicle’s condition. Take these steps on how to reset a Toyota maintenance light below:

  1. Put your key in the ignition and turn it to position one, the position just before starting the car.
  2. Push and hold the trip meter reset button on the dashboard, then turn your key to position two.
  3. Continue holding the odometer button for 10 seconds. The light should then flash, possibly beep, and then go out.
  4. Once off, release the odometer button and start the car. If you notice the light is still on, repeat this process only one or two more times to turn off the maintenance light on your Toyota RAV4, Highlander, Camry, Corolla, or any other model.
  5. If you continue to run into problems, this might be an indicator of additional services you’ll need. Bring it in to your local Toyota dealer so you can have your vehicle thoroughly inspected and get back on the road.
