I turned the car on this morning and the center display said "Oil maint req'd soon". I have 4,500 miles and am planning on getting the car serviced next weekend when I am closer to the 5k mark. The window service sticker says 5k or 4/10/2009.

Should I be concerned and take the car in now? Or is this the car simply telling me I'm getting close to the service mileage.

U can clear that off by turning the car off. Then hold down the lil needle down on ur gauge cluster then with out starting ur car put ur car into on mode, so everthing but ur engine goes on. The a bunch of zeros will show up 000000 and start to count down like 00000000 -0000000 ---00000 wait till all the zeros go away and ur done.

that happens within 500 miles of your next scheduled oil change. you're at 4500 and next change is at 5000. it's also in the manual. ;)

Thanks Jack! I just learned something new and useful for the future. I have low miles but my dealership is already reminding me about the 5k oil change...

Once you pass the 5k mark, the OIL MAINT will stay on the dash and the red exclamation will stay lit as well. I've just completed my 5K service on my 2009 last night. :D

I'm just curious does this notice light come on at 10k or 9.5k miles. If so if we were to follow jack's method does that help remove the notice. I think at the 5k miles is worth bringing to lexus for service but around 10k I'm thinking of an alternative shop to do it. Also have the alternative shop put in Amsoil not too sure if Lexus does that.

The light will come on after each 5k interval. Depending on when it was reset will it restart the 5k cycle over again. The warning at startup comes on within 500 miles of the next service interval. The light stays on as you hit the 5k mark of the interval.
