Maintenance indicator still on after oil change

Hi, just want to ask your help. My maintenance light came on last year around august. I asked the local dealer to change oil, oil filter and spark plug. Then the car was hiatus for around 8 months as I was abroad studying. Now, I've been using my FJ for almost a week and a half and the maintenance light came on again. The FJ did not even finish a full tank of gas since I had it serviced. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

If you haven't taken this step, try having the light reset. Best, SmokyJ - 08TT

+2. I would just reset the light and see if it comes back on. You can reset it yourself.

Re: How to reset the oil change "engine Maintenance" light
To clear the light: with the truck off and the keys out of the ignition press and hold the odometer/trip button on the gauges and insert the key and move it to the "on" position. Do not start the engine though. Keep holding the button until the little dots go away (you will know what Im talking about when you see it). That will clear the light

Re: Maintenance indicator still on after oil change

With ignition key off:
1. Hold odometer/trip-ometer button down with left hand.
2. Turn ignition key to on position (do not start the engine).
3. After about 7 seconds, the light will go out.
4. Start engine!
