Hi, does anyone know how to reset the timing belt (T-Belt) warning light on the dash of an analog odometer (once its hit 100k)?
This is for a KZH106 1995 Hiace model with no tacho meter, has the door open indicator in its place.

Toyota often have a rubber gromet in the dash glass, if you have pull it out and poke a thin stiff wire through the hole.

Hi, this has no rubber grommet on the front.
I'm assuming this means its a major job where you have to get in behind the instrument cluster?

I suspect then that there is a diagnostic type connector somewhere that you flash the pins the reset it, another Toyota secret?

Removing just the clock cluster is much easier and quicker than you'd think....
I don't know how to reset...but read of access through air vents...shorting pins...pushing buttons...it all gets a bit mythical! Rolling Eyes .....but if you want to look behind the clocks don't be put off...just remove the screws from the clock shroud...then the clock panel is held with a few screws and pulls out cleanly

Yeah, I've removed the dash etc a coupla times so know how to do that. The instrument cluster looks like its just fixed with 4 screws but I need the detail to reset the light! Surely someone must know....?!

Toyota are often helpful and notate what is what on the printed circuit, may be obvious if it is on the back of the dash?

On the Hi-Surf 2.4 there are two knobs under the speedo one does the trip meter the other restets the timing belt trip counter.
I've a digital combination meter (guages) with no such switch don't even know if I get a warning either?

Spoke to a friend who has a later Landcruiser.
On the back of the meters on the printed circuit there are two circular adjacent markings with, would you believe two holes, one has a screw in it the other don't. Simply remove screw and put it in the other one, job done for another 100.000 KMs.

Anyone got a photo that shows the back so we can have a look?
