Hello! My name is Gary.
Welcome to JustAnswer.
I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with a reply shortly.

Ok Gary.

Hello there,

Should be something like this:

Switch ignition ON
- Press tripmeter switch and ensure "ODO" is displayed
- Switch ignition OFF
- Press tripmeter switch
- Switch ignition ON
- Press tripmeter switch for 5 seconds
- Release tripmeter switch and press again within 5 seconds
- "15" will be displayed
- Press tripmeter switch for 5 seconds
- Release tripmeter switch
- Ensure "ODO" displayed and light goes out

Hope this helps.


We have tried that Gary and it doesn’t work

What happens for you?

Does the trip meter button work for other normal functions?

Does the cluster perspex have a rubber bung covering another switch on the gauge facia?


Sorry it worked. Thanks. We held it for 15 seconds and it worked

That's good.

I've seen the occasional fussy reset.

Have a good day.


You too

Hi Gary
Mate since we have fixed tbelt light the speedo and taco aren’t working can you shed any light on this

What happens when you press the tripmeter knob now?

Can you disconnect the negative battery terminal for a few minutes, then reconnect and let me know?


Will do right now
The trip meter knob works prefect tacho works but Speedo tries to but it just shuts at 6 o’clock

Did the 15 display when you did the reset sequence?

Are you saying the speedo needle is stuck at 6 o'clock?

I've seen that once, and it's a cluster out job to fix.


mate stuck at 6

Did the needle swing all the around to 6 straight after you did the reset?

Do you have a Toyota dealer nearby?


we do and no it dropped

I can't say I've seen one do that.

The needle has a mechanical stop to rest on at 0km.

Sounds like the speedo stepper motor has lost its reference zero calibration.

Whereabouts are you?

I'll see if I can refer you to an instrument repairer.
