Engine Oil Replacement Reminder Light for vehicles sold in the U.S.A.

This warning light acts as a reminder to change the engine oil.

This warning light will come on when the IG−ON mode is enabled, and will turn off after about a few seconds. When you drive for about 7200 km (4500 miles) after engine oil replacement, this light illuminates for about three seconds and then flashes for about twelve seconds when the hybrid system is in the IG−ON mode. If you continue driving without engine oil replacement, and if the driving range exceeds 8000 km (5000 miles), the light will come on after the IG−ON mode is enabled. The warning light will remain on thereafter.

If the warning light is flashing, we recommend that to change the engine oil at an early opportunity depending on the driving and road conditions. If the warning light comes on, replace the oil as soon as possible. The service light must be reset after the engine oil replacement. Reset the system by the following procedure:

  1. Push the POWER switch to the OFF mode with the odometer reading shown.
  2. Push the POWER switch twice to select the IG−ON mode while holding down the trip meter reset button.
  3. Hold down the button for at least five seconds. The odometer indicates “000000” and the warning light goes off.

If the system fails to reset, the warning light will remain flashing, try again.
