RAV4 Maintenance Light Reset

If your oil light won’t go off after an oil change you’re probably eager to shut off your RAV4 dash lights so you can drive with peace of mind through Palm Beach County. Learning to do a RAV4 maintenance light reset is easy – but we recommend reading through the instructions first so you’re familiar with the process beforehand. Follow the steps below to turn off your RAV4 maintenance light:

  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 you complete the above process and your RAV4 maintenance light stays or if your Toyota RAV4 all warning lights come on, then you should schedule service at our dealership. While the RAV4 dash lights normally signify that maintenance is needed, they could also be indicating a larger problem. Bring your RAV4 in today for an inspection.
