I have a 1996 Landcruiser/Prado with a 3 litre diesel engine. The dashboard warning light 'T-BELT' came on at 90,000 Km. I have put a new belt on - easy peesy! Does anyone know how I can reset the warning light?

Have something to contribute?

Have you got a rubber grommet in the instrument display (where the speedo and tacho is) about at the same level as the trip meter reset?

If yes then remove the grommet and there is a very small button if you take the insert out of a biro pen and just press the small button that should reset the T-belt light

No there is no grommet but thanks anyway. Anyone else got any ideas ?

You need to remove the dash and swop this screw into the other hole. Posted Image


Also the light should come on at 100,000km, this could indicate that your speedo has been clocked.

if you move the screw to position 2 does it stay there for good , or does it reset first then move the screw back to postion 1. thanks.

you have to leave the screw in the new position until the TB light comes on again after 100000 km.

Hi all,

I just got my T-belt sign turned on, at 200 000km.

The thing is, I just bought the car... (at 199400km), so I don't know if it was changed...

Mind you, I can always call the previous owner, but he got it at 185 000km.

(The guy is a sales man in africa, bringing back models from Japan after transformation in Dubai)...

Anyhow I'll check...

Since I don't have a user or repair manual, I don't really know what is the "timing belt" (?!)

Is it just the belts in front of the radiator that activate the AC, the Dynamo etc... Or is it the distribution belt?

Is there anything I should do, having reached 200 000km?

Thanks for your help.

Have something to contribute?
