Light on dash is on?......

I took my truck in for a oil change and tire rotation and then drove it about 60 miles running around town and now these lights are on. I know the check engine could be they did not reset it after oil change but for it to come on after worries me and the other light is making me wonder if I should even be driving it.....any help/advice would be nice.

the Check engine light is unrelated to an oil change reminder light.

True. The dealer tech. could have changed the oil, by draining it, then hitting the ECU with a hammer.

Doesn't Trac/VSC come on with ABS and some CEL?

Wife's Rav4 had a bum ECU (we're assuming, dealer never clarified, just swapped it after shotgunning for a week without resolution) and the VSC came on with the CEL.

Check Engine Light.

Your top light is NOT because they forgot to reset it after changing the oil.
That light actually says "Maintenance Required".

You have a problem that requires service from someone who knows WTF they're doing... not an oil change place.

Check Engine Lights are a pain unless u have a reader

Nope I am the only one that puts gas in my truck although if my wife ever wanted to I wouldnt stop her

Also I have ran through 3/4 of a tank when the oil change happened.

Double check the MAF and other connections on the air intake. Not sure what they may have gotten into if they removed the engine cover... shouldn't have been needed for the oil/filter change but it may have had to come off for the air filter service.

I'd pull the cover and check anything that looks like an electrical connector. They had to have left something unplugged or knocked something loose.
Double check and make sure the gas cap is on tight.

But failing something obvious, I'd be back at the dealership tomorrow. Don't drive around all week with that CEL on... it could damage the catalytic if it's running lean, or it could decide to go into "limp home" mode and limit your RPM.

Run your truck to autozone and at least find out what the code is for.

X2 on autozone for the code. If it's nothing major pull the battery for 20 min to reset the ECU. If they pulled the battery for some reason it tends to confuse the ECU... I know mine does and the TRAC light will randomly come on a few times then after like the 3rd trip it stops doing it.

Trac control light should be a faulty communication between speed sensor and CU. However, ABS and Brake light should go off as well as those are dependent on the sensor. As for check engine light a sensor might of been knocked while they were doing the change, or could be related to the CODE for the trac control.

He's got a 2010 and should be under warranty. He needs to take it back and explain to them exactly what happened. Dealer should take care of him from there.

Dammit, Phil! It's because it's much more easily frustrating to ask here than to take it to the dealer.
