It probably wasn't reset properly.

Engine Oil Replacement Reminder Light (for vehicles sold in U.S.A.)
This light reminds you when to replace the engine oil.

This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to ON and will go off after about a few seconds.

When you drive for about 8000 km (5000 miles) after the engine oil replacement, this light illuminates for about 3 seconds and then flashes for about 12 seconds with the ignition key turned to the "ON" position.
If you continue driving without replacing the engine oil, and if the distance driven exceeds 12000 km (7500 miles), the light will come on after the ignition key is turned to "ON" position, and will remain on thereafter.

If the light is flashing, we recommend that you replace the engine oil at an early opportunity depending on the driving and road conditions.
If the light comes on steady, replace it as soon as possible.

The system must be reset after the engine oil replacement.
Reset the system by the following procedure:

Turn the ignition key to the "ACC" or "LOCK" position with the odometer reading shown.
Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset button. Hold down the button for at least 5 seconds.
The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.

If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.

Navigation Maintenance Item Data (If equipped)

This system has a function which informs you of the time to replace certain parts or components as well as other information shown on the screen. When the system begins operating after reaching either the information items date or driving distance, the "information" screen will be displayed.

To avoid seeing the "information" screen again, touch the "Do not display this message again" switch.

Setting Maintenance Information

Push the "INFO" button to display the "Information Menu" screen, and then touch the "Maintenance" switch.
Touch your desired icon and input the conditions.
Date: Input the next maintenance date.

Distance: Input the driving distance until the next maintenance check. You can input up to five digits for the driving distance.

When you touch the "Personal Event" switch on the "Maintenance" screen, the screen changes to the "Personal Event" screen. Touch the keys to input your desired name and then input the conditions.

After you input the information, touch the "OK" switch. The screen returns to the "Maintenance" screen. The icon color will change to green after the date and driving distance are input. The icon color will change to orange when your vehicle needs to be serviced. The following switches appear on the "Maintenance" screen.

Delete all: Cancel all conditions which have been input.
Reset all: Reset all items which satisfy either condition.
Touch the "OFF" switch on the "Maintenance" screen, and the "Information" screen will no longer be displayed.


For scheduled maintenance information, please refer to the Scheduled maintenance guide or Owners manual supplement.
Depending on your driving or the road conditions, the system may have a time-lag between the data which has been input and the actual date and driving distance.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
