MAINT REQD

Question by theredcorolla posted 1 year ago in Corolla

This is for a 2011 Corolla S. When the light came on I followed the instruction as they appear as soon as you google MAINT REQD Toyota Corolla. However, that did not help as far as turning the light off by reseting Trip miles. Maybe the car needed that oil change asap even though there were 1k miles left until the next oil change.

Light was gone after I got the car from the shop where I did the oil change.

Does this scenerion mean that when you see MAINT REQD light and after 2-3 attemps to reset trip mileage and restart the car the light is still there you REALLY need to change the oil asap in order to avoid any potential issues and get rid of the warning light?
