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.
#1797 of 2179 90K mile belt replacement
Nov 05, 2007 (11:55 pm)
My 03 SR5 is approaching the 90K mile mark. At that juncture, I'll have both the timing and serpentine belts replaced, even though the latter belt was replaced at 60K miles.
The dealership recommended that I replace the water pump as well, I assume based on their prior repair experience with the Sequoia. I'm ok with this. But the dealership also recommended that the engine seals be replaced.
At 85K, my Sequoia has not experienced any oil leaks. So I'm somewhat surprised that the dealer would recommend this. As a general rule, the seals don't get replaced unless it experiences failure.
Has anyone come across this maintenance proposal or seal failure?
#1798 of 2179 timing belt
Nov 06, 2007 (4:41 pm)
i have a 2001 sequoia limited 4x2 and the mileage is almost 92,000 miles. right now i have no problem with my sequoia i only replaced the brake pads both front and rear, gear oil, and the battery recently. do i need to replace the timing belt already? thank you very much.

Toyota strongly recommends that the timing belt be changed at 90K miles. The process of replacing the timing belt requires the removal of the serpentine belt. So that belt is usually replaced as well, but at no additional labor cost to you -- a good deal.
