Toyota Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Thank you for trusting us with your questions. The maintenance light is a 5000 mile timer. The maintenance required message comes on 5000 miles since it was reset. Give me just a minute and I will get you the instructions to reset it yourself. Basically, it sounds like it wasnt reset at your last oil change.
Attached is a copy of a page from your owners manual with the reset instructions.
