This chapter will show you how to reset the oil life or the maintenance required light on a Toyota 4runner. This is a 2021 4runner here, but it will be the same in a few different years. So the first thing we want to do is:

  1. Switch on the ignition

    First, turn the ignition to the on position on as far as you can turn the ignition forward without actually starting the engine or you can press the START button two times

  2. Go to the TRIP A

    Then once it’s on, we’re going to press the ODO/TRIP stem right here and we’re going to press that until we have TRIP A highlighted on the screen

  3. Turn the ignition off

    Once we have TRIP A up we’re going to turn the ignition off

  4. Hold down the ODO/TRIP stem and then turn on the ignition

    Now we’re going to press that ODO/TRIP stem and hold it down as you turn the ignition back to the on position

  5. Keep holding it

    We’re going to continue to hold it down and then as you can see they’re resetting and once that message is done you can let go and it has been reset

So that’s pretty much it. Let me know if you have any questions. If you could take a second to share this post, it helps us out, and I’d appreciate it. Anyway, enjoy and keep taking care of your 4runner.
