How Do I Reset the Toyota Maintenance Light on My Corolla?

Usually, service technicians who service your vehicle will reset the Toyota maintenance light. If they forgot to do so, it’s a pretty easy thing for you to take care of on your own. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn the key so the car is on.
  2. Make sure the odometer is displayed.
  3. Turn the key so the car is off.
  4. Push and hold the reset button on the trip meter.
  5. Turn the key back on again, but not to the start position.
  6. The odometer will display dashes that disappear one at a time, and then a set of zeros will appear.
  7. Keep holding the button down until the zeros go away and the odometer reading comes back.

Why Did My Toyota Maintenance Light Come on?

Before you decide to reset your Toyota maintenance light, it’s important to understand why it came on. Unlike the “check engine” light, the maintenance required light in the gauge cluster—which reads “”MAINT REQD”—means that it has been 5,000 miles since it was last reset. Your Toyota probably needs its scheduled maintenance, then—probably an oil change.
