What Does the Lexus Maintenance Required Light Mean?

Maintenance required light on dashboard

If you’ve noticed a new symbol glowing on your dashboard, you might be wondering just what does the “Lexus Maintenance Required” light mean and what should I do? The Lexus Maintenance Required light is a reminder for drivers that pops on automatically after around 3,500 to 5,000 miles of Bronx travels. While it doesn’t mean anything is wrong with your Lexus parts, it does mean that you should start thinking about your 5,000-mile service. Find out a little more about Lexus maintenance cost and more with Ray Catena Lexus of Larchmont.

What Service Do I Need?

When your maintenance light pops on, usually it indicates that you need a 5,000-mile service. This includes basic maintenance like:

  • Engine oil change
  • Filter change
  • Tire rotation
  • Multi-point inspection
  • Fluid inspection
  • Fluid adjustment

However, you might need other services as well depending on your particular model. Feel free to ask our technicians for advice!

What is the Lexus Maintenance Cost?

While the typical Lexus maintenance cost may range anywhere from $75 to $135, be sure to check your warranty! Your new Lexus vehicle includes complimentary maintenance for your first and second scheduled maintenance services – usually at 6 months/5,000 miles and 12 months/10,000 miles. But keep in mind that after many miles down the Mamaroneck and New Rochelle roads, you’ll need to factor in services like timing belt repairs and ignition tune-ups into the Lexus maintenance cost.

Can I Reset Lexus Maintenance Light?

If you’ve scheduled you’re service and you’re ready to go, you might wonder, “Can I reset Lexus maintenance light?” Yes!

  • Turn on your engine.
  • Flip your Odometer/Trip Display to ODO mode or TRIP A mode, depending on the model.
  • Turn the ignition switch off.
  • Hold the Trip Meter Reset button while turning the ignition switch back on.
  • Wait for the maintenance light to blink, turn solid, and then turn off.
  • Let go of the Trip Meter Reset button.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the off position.
  • Turn the ignition switch back on and make sure the Lexus Maintenance Light goes out.
