How to Reset Maintenance Light on Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra has a "Maintenance Required" oil change indicator light that will illuminate every 5,000 miles. This maintenance indicator light is not emergent, but rather a simple reminder that it's probably time for an oil change at your nearest Toyota Service Center. This maintenance light will automatically display on your odometer instrument cluster when you've driven 5,000 miles since the last time it was reset. All second-generation Toyota Tundra pickup trucks have this light – so whether you have a new or used Toyota Tundra, you will likely see this light go on at some point.

Maintenance Light Reset

You will be required to reset this indicator light once the oil has been changed, regardless of whether you service your Tundra at your local dealership or change the oil yourself. The dealership will know how to do the maintenance required light reset for you, and they typically do so without being asked. However, if they forget to reset the light, you can ask them and they shouldn't have any trouble resetting it for you.

If you're mechanically inclined and choose to change the oil yourself, you will need to go through the Tundra maintenance reset procedure. This procedure will turn the maintenance light off and will restart the 5,000-mile countdown until the light turns on again. Resetting your Tundra oil indicator light is a simple process and doesn't require any tools or supplies. However, before beginning any vehicle maintenance, it's always a good idea to check your Toyota Tundra owner's manual for pertinent information.

Here is how to reset the oil change indicator light on your Toyota Tundra.

Troubleshooting 

Once you have followed the steps for the Toyota Tundra required maintenance light reset, the "Maintenance Required" oil change indicator light should be turned off. If the light is not successfully reset, here are a few things you can try:

  1. Double-check that your digital odometer is set with the odometer reading showing and try following the procedure again.
  2. If this does not work and the light is still on, you may consider disconnecting the battery from your Tundra. When you disconnect the battery for a few minutes, then reconnect it, the internal computer will be forced to reset.
  3. If the light is still on at this point, you might consider reading your Tundra owner's manual, or contact your local Toyota dealership for further instructions.
