Toyota cars and trucks come with a handy maintenance reminder indicator. This indicator appears on the dashboard and lets you know when it's time to change the oil. The light that appears reads "Main. Required." Once you change the Toyota's oil, reset the maintenance required/oil change light to turn it off. The procedure differs slightly among Toyota vehicles.
