Is the procedure to reset the Maintenance Required light on a 2005 Toyota Sienna the same as for the 2004?

It should be. I don't think there were any major changes in this regard from '04 to'05, but check your owners manual or the dealership to be sure. It is the same (but you won't find the procedure in the owner's manual). It is in the owners manual. ed724

How do you change 98 Ford Taurus headlights?

1. Make sure headlamp is off and open hood. 2. Taurus model years 1990-1999: you must remove the whole headlamp to replace the bulb. Not a horrible task. Just annoying. 3. Facing the driver's side headlamp, and looking at the headlamp itself, at clock positions 8, 11 and 1 are the headlight housing screws. They all look the same. Using a 10mm socket wrench, remove these 3 screws and set them aside. 4. Just to the right of the "11 o'clock" housing screw is a bolt (same hexagonal 10mm sized top as the housing screws). This just needs a few turns to loosen it. 5. Gently pull the whole headlight forward. Now you can get at the bulb. 6. Disconnect the electrical connector from the bulb. Now the headlamp is free to work with. Remove the bulb, replace with a new bulb, make sure the bulb housing cylinder is in place and reconnect the electical. 7. Place headlamp back into position. Line up screw holes. Tighten the bolt. Replace housing screws and tighten. 8. Passenger side headlamp is mirror image of driver's side. Screws at 11, 1 and 4 o'clock positions. Bolt should be to the left of the "1 o'clock" housing screw.

Where is the main relay for the fuel pump on a 2001 Acura RL?

It is under the dash on the driver's side. Look up under there where the brake pedal is attached. It is a black box with two electrical connectors plugged in to the bottom It is attached to the dash with a silver metal bracket.

How do you reset the 'maintenance required' light on an '04 Toyota Rav 4?

How do I turn off the Flashing Maintenance light (oil change reminder)? 1. Turn the power switch IG-ON and make sure that the ODO/TRIP meter is the odometer display. 2. Turn the power switch OFF. 3. While pushing the "ODO/ TRIP meter switching & TRIP meter reset" switch, turn the power switch IG-ON. 4. Until the resetting is completed, the reminder light flashes. 5. The resetting is completed when the reminder light turns OFF. Release the "ODO/TRIP meter switching & TRIP meter reset" switch. 6. After the resetting is completed, the ODO/TRIP meter displays as a set of zeros for 1 second. Then, the ODO/TRIP meter displays the your normal odometer mileage.

This really works - keep holding the button down until the lights go out!

How do you reset the maintenance required light on a 1994 acura?

Listed in your owner's manual. On alot of hondas and acuras you can remove the hazard light fuse for a min. of 10 mins. to reset the computer and maint. light. from orion_1120@yahoo.com Possibly by turning key into on position while holding in trip mileage reset button. Mechanic told me that, but I have not confirmed it. Just right under the steering wheel, behind the plastic covers, you will find a black rectangular unit with a blue push switch. First, Start your car, and then click the blue switch until the Maintenance Required signal turns off. The maintenance required signal just warns the owner that it has exceeded around 7,500 miles so that you can do a 15-point inspection for your car or whatever. Use a flashlight and dig down under the steering wheel, you'll find it there, just keep looking. For the 1995 Integra, there is a blue button under the dash, directly above the space between the brake and the gas pedal. Turn the ignition to position II, hold the button down for 5 - 10 seconds and the light will go off. Answer - 1994 Acura Legend - There is a push button on the dash right below the maintenance light it looks like a slot big enough to push it with your key. I did it on mine and it worked.

How do you reset the maintenance required light on a 1989 Voyager?

a SCAN TOOL HAS TO BE USED TO RESET THE LIGHT. FOR EXAMPLE, WITH A SNAP-ON SCAN TOOL THERE IS AN OPTION ON THE SCROLL DOWN LIST THAT SAYS "RESET EMR LAMP"

on the back of the instrument group in the dash is a small hole that you insert a push-pin tool into to reset the latch relay that was activated by the odometer to enable the light. You can reach it with a jewelers screwdriver, but you need to disconnect the battery first (is the stereo off before disconnecting the battery?) and turn the camlocks that hold the backplate up. Better idea is take it to the dealer and have them reset it for you. It is there to remind you to have the timing belt replaced and the O2 sensor checked. if either fails, you will regret this decision to ignore the service call.

Can you use low grade fuel in an acura 32?

If the car doesnt have a super or turbo charger and if you dont use nitrous then yes you can use low grade fuel in the car and it wont hurt it what so ever.Although if the grade is below the reccomended octane in your manual then a knocking noise will result as the piston fires. this isn't mechanicalbut just the noise of the gas igniting

Set the odometer to TRIP A. Turn the key off. Press and hold the ODO button. Turn the key on. Continue holding the button while the light goes through a series of flashes. When it stops flashing, turn the key off and release the button.

Turn the key back on to make sure it "took".

How do you change the wiper motor on a 1998 Acura RL?

WIPER MOTORS SHOULD LAST FOR MANY YEARS. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY CHECKED THE FUSE BOX AND USED A LIGHT METER TO SEE IF THERE IS A BREAK IN THE WIRE, THAN IT IS YOUR MOTOR. YOU MUST RAISE HOOD AND REMOVE BLACK PLASTIC SHROUD, BETWEEN YOUR HOOD AND WINDSHIELD. YOU MAY HAVE TO GOTO THE DEALER TO REPLACE THE ROUND CLIPS BUT THEY MAY BE ABLE TO BE REUSED IF REMOVED CAREFULLY. A FEW BOLT AND WIRES AND THAT SUCKER IS OFF. CHECK JUNKYARDS FOR USED MOTORS AS I BET THEY ARE PRICEY NEW.

How do you reset the maintenance required light on a 1989 Dodge Power Ram 150 4x4 318v8 auto?

If it's anything like my Dodge Dakota, the maintenance required light is to inform you that the emissions system is due for an inspection. Some earlier models had a button behind instrument cluster to reset it, but I've been told that on my 89 Dakota it requires a trip to the dealer. It doesn't indicate a problem, just a cruel trick to make you visit the dealer! I just took the bulb out of mine.

Does anyone out there know where the oil drain plug is located on a 2002 Acura RL3.5 Does it need a special tool to remove the plug?

In the '03 Owner's manual, a rather poor picture shows the oil drain bolt at the bottom right rear of the engine; it's axis is parallel to the ground, fore and aft. If the picture is correct "Engine Oil" label is cast into the bottom casting at the bolt. Directions are to run engine to normal temperature; lift hood, remove engine oil fill cap. Remove drain bolt and washer from the bottom of the engine. Remove the oil filter and let the remaining oil drain; a special wrench is needed for the filter. (I'd guess a normal oil filter wrench will work. )

How do you reset the maintenance required light on a 2006 tacoma?

I have a 2007 Toyota Tacoma, but I believe the reset steps will be the same for the 2006 model. Here are the steps to reset the Maintenance Required light: 1) Turn your key to the on position (just before it turns the engine over). 2) Push the odometer button until the total miles are displayed and HOLD it in. 3) Turn the key Off, and then back ON while holding the odometer button in. Don't let up on the button. You will notice the odometer reading shows dashes and they will sequence off. After they sequence off, the Maint Reqd light will go off. Release the odometer button. That's it! You can also follow this youtube demo. It's for a different make of vehicle, but it is exactly the same process. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HulNtNltD7A -Pete-

How do you reset the Maintenance Required light on a 2003 Toyota 4 Runner?

If you mean the oil change maintenence light... Set the odometer to total miles (The actual odometer reading). Turn the truck off, then turn the key (While holding the re-set button) so the engin is not on, but the power is. The light will then flash and go out. It will come on again in another 5,000 miles to remind you to get your oil changed. the button the last guy is referring to is located to the left of the speedometer,tach,guage assembly (combination meter) it says "reset" on it

How do you reset the maintenance required light on the instrument cluster on a 2003 Honda Civic?

With your key in the "on" position but your "not" running. Disconnect the positive battery cable and leave off for a few minutes. Turn the key off at the end of the wait and plug the battery back in. If the code is cleared the light should be reset. If it comes back on, the trouble is still there.

There is another way of course... I've seen the worker at the Honda dealership use the trip/arrows and other buttons on the instrument panel to read the code and to turn off the maint. req. light on my S2000. He said that it is timed to go off when the next oil change is required.

Does anybody know how to do this without disconnecting the battery?

Thanks much! T

Ahhh I found it, from http://www.photoslave.com/journal/auto/s2000_maint.html : To reset the MAINTENANCE REQUIRED light: - Have key inserted in ignition but in the OFF or LOCKED position. - Push and hold the trip reset button on the right bottom corner of your gauge clutster. - Turn key to full ON position and continue holding the button till the light goes off.

How do you replace the headlight bulb located on a 1998 Acura RL 3.5L?

Taken from: http://rl.acurazine.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3276

"You remove the air intake, battery, and may need to remove the anitfreeze resivoir next to the battery. Then you can reach the bulbs from the back. Yo will no longer need to remove the bumper, taking out the housing is a pain. Just make sure you have the stereo + nav code when you take out the battery."
