This article shows you the steps for resetting the maintenance required light on the dashboard of Lexus ES330. The procedure is same for 2004-2006 ES330

The ‘oil maint reqd’ light in your Lexus simply means a service interval has been met. And this means engine oil is due for change. It comes on 5,000 miles after the last time it was reset.

This light comes on strictly as a function of miles covered by your car, and it is never an indication that something is wrong with your car. So your heart doesn’t skip a beat whenever it pops up on your dashboard.

This reset in your 2004-2006 Lexus ES330 will need to be performed after every oil change. If it is not reset the system will be unable to properly track when your next oil change is due.

Below is the procedure you should follow to reset the maintenance required light in your 2004 – 2006 Lexus ES330 after each oil change.
