Can I reset AWD warning light?


Asked by Mar 07, 2017 at 11:50 AM about the 2015 Toyota Highlander Limited Platinum AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The AWD warning light just appeared on my 2015 Highlander for no reason.
The SUV is running fine and I hate to drive all the way to my dealer just to
have a warning light reset.
Is there a reset?

Your highlander Dynamic Torque-Control AWD have a system issues. If light blinks, the system has been overloaded. Drop your speed or stop the vehicle (but leave the engine running) until blinking stops. If light stays on, system is malfunctioning and should be checked by your Toyota dealer. Do not reset the till you know the problem.

Hi The light doesn't blink but just stays on. The car is running the same and the dealer is 50 miles away so I guess I'll live with it until next scheduled service. Thanks

The sooner, the better.


Resetting a warning light does NOTHING. If you put off fixing the problem the light is trying to warn you about it may end up costing you $$$.
