No one wants to see their maintenance light come on, but in most cases, getting it to turn off is as simple as a quick trip to your local Hollywood service center.

Luckily, learning how to reset the maintenance light on a Toyota Corolla only takes a few minutes. We’ve broken down the process for your convenience.

Manually Reset Maintenance Light Toyota Corolla

When you have your vehicle serviced with an expert, they’ll make sure your warning light goes off afterward. However, if you’re performing necessary maintenance at home, you may end up having to perform a hard reset. Here’s how to get the job done in a Corolla:

  1. Turn your keys to the “On” position, but don’t start the car.
  2. Hold the trip reset button down for several seconds. “Trip A” should appear on the central screen.
  3. Once you see this on the display, return the key to the off position.
  4. Press and hold the trip reset button, and while doing so, turn the key back to the “On” position.
  5. Keep holding it down until you see the odometer flash zero. The maintenance light should now be off.

If it doesn’t work the first time, there’s no harm in repeating the process. If you’re still having trouble after a second try, consider bringing your vehicle into our dealership, conveniently located near Los Angeles and North Hollywood.

Turn Off Maintenance Light Toyota Corolla Color Display

The most recent generations of the Toyota Corolla have a color display that can make the process even easier! Here’s what to do if you have one of these systems in your vehicle:

  1. Turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the engine.
  2. If your Corolla has the push-button start feature, hold down the brake pedal while pressing the button twice in quick succession. This will turn it “On” without starting the engine.
  3. With the information display lit up, select the cog icon.

  5. Confirm your selection by selecting OK.

Your maintenance light should now be off! You’re ready to start your engine and get back on the road.
