#1787 of 2179 2006 Toyota Sequoia Maintenance Required light
Oct 11, 2007 (7:46 pm)
My maintenance required light is on. I called the Toyota dealer and the person on the phone said the oil just needed changed (it was not over 3000 miles yet). So I had it changed, then he said I needed to reset it. He told me to leave the key in the off position, push on the odometer reset button and hold it down until it resets the maintenance light. I did this and the light is still on. Am I doing something wrong? Did I misinterpret his instructions? Someone please advise!

This technique does work on Toyota's and Honda's as well. The devil is in the detail's of course. Believe a full moon with all the planets of the Cosmos moving at 100M times the speed of light in reverse was critical.
Hope this helps ......... <(-;

yes... fill up the brake fluid and disconnect the battery cable...
the toyota dealer wanted a lot of money to fix. when i called the customer service number and complained that the computer only needed to be reset, the delearship called me back and sait it was a temporary fix and that the light would come back on w/in 25 starts. to date, hundreds of starts later, no light....
i think it's programmed to come on so you can get cheated by toyota's repair shop.

I am sorry but do not have an answer, but I had the shop foreman at my dealer show me once, but it was like 6 mos ago and he did say that it was quirky how you performed this? Just call the dealer and tell them that you need more concise instructions? I am trying to remember, but here goes:
Turn ignition to "ON" position. Make sure odometer is on trip setting not on total vehicle mileage setting.
Turn ignition OFF
Push and hold odometer button while turning ignition to "ON" position. HOld for about 4-5 seconds until maintenance light goes off. Turn ignition OFF. Start up vehicle. There should be no more maintanence light.
Apparently the maintenance light only comes on for USA Sequoia's. It is to remind you to change your oil. But it has nothing to do with mileage because I only put on 1000 miles since last oil change and light still came on. I suspect it's to do with # of days...

Well I just kept trying different things and this is what worked. With the odometer in the total mileage position, and the key in the off position. Push the odo. reset button in and hold for 10 sec, then while still holding the button in I started my Sequoia and it started and the light went off. Happy Days!

It is the sending unit/float. I had the same problem. The fix is about $100, but luckily, I had an extended warranty that covered it. One it was replaced, it works like a charm.

My tsc light come on and stays on and I dont know why, I have hooked the obd2 and checked for any codes but the only code that it pulls is for an o2 sensor. If anyone can give me any advise I would appreciate it.

My 03 back latch handle just broke for the 2nd time. Did you ever receive any feedback on a DIY job? My rear window want work because the window motor froze up so there is no way to access the rear without climbing over the middle and rear seats. Any suggestions?

well I cant give you any feedback on the door handle but I did have the same problem with my back window and it wasnt that the motor froze up it was that the connectors after a while came loose a little and they just had to be reconnected when I took my back door apart it didnt even look like the connector was out but I just disconnected all the connectors and then put them all back on and it has been working fine ever since. You might want to try that to try and fix your back window. sorry I could give any advice on the door handle.
