How to Reset Toyota Prius Warning Lights

A car owner trying to figure out how to reset their car warning lights

What do you do when you see those Toyota Prius warning lights pop up? If you see your Toyota maintenance light activated, there’s no need to panic. Your Prius warning lights are indicating that your Prius is due for service soon. If it’s been about 5,000 miles since you last had your oil changed, for example, you’ll see an indicator light letting you know that it’s time to schedule service at your Ontario service center near Rancho Cucamonga. That said, continuing to drive with your Toyota Prius maintenance light flashing isn’t a good idea. Reset your Toyota maintenance light until you arrive for service by following these steps, then contact us if you have any further questions! Better yet, schedule service to have one of our technicians reset the light for you.

Before you reset your Toyota Prius warning light, inspect your Prius to find out why the Toyota maintenance light is activated. Check your Toyota Prius maintenance schedule to see if it’s time for your next tire rotation, oil change, or other routine maintenance. Once you’ve identified the issue, you can either keep it activated until you make it into our John Elway's Crown Toyota service center near Eastvale or reset it before visiting us. Follow these five simple steps below should you opt to reset your Toyota maintenance light: 

  1. Place your key into your Prius ignition until it’s on, but not started.
