Toyota 4Runner: How to Reset Maintenance Light

The Toyota 4Runner will display a ‘Maintenance Required‘ message on the instrument panel to remind you when an oil change is due. This notification will display once the vehicle travels 4,500 miles since the last reset.

Once service has been performed, you can reset the maintenance light using these steps.

  1. Turn the ignition of the vehicle “On“. On push button models, press the Engine Start button two times. Do not start the engine.
  2. Press the “Odometer/Trip” stem button located on the instrument panel to toggle the display to show the Trip A mileage.
