How To Turn Off Maintenance Light on the Toyota RAV4

If you notice the light is on even after having the service done, you’ll want it turned off as it can be distracting and confusing. After all, you may think there’s something else wrong with the vehicle. Luckily, we can help you learn the trick to reset the maintenance light on your RAV4. Follow these steps:

  1. Put your key in the ignition and turn it to position one, the position just before starting the car.
  2. Push and hold the odometer button on the dashboard, then turn your key to position two.
  3. Continue holding the odometer button for 10 seconds. The light should then flash, possibly beep, and then go out.
  4. Once off, release the odometer button and start the car. If you notice the light is still on, repeat this process only one or two more times to turn off the maintenance light on the Toyota RAV4.

If the light remains on, you’ll need to bring in your RAV4 for service. A maintenance light can signal a potentially serious problem, and you’ll always want to keep up with the recommended maintenance schedule.
