    Neds the oil changed...OR if it has been changed recently, you need to reset the light.

    I'm not sure about 20,000 but my 05 does the exact same thing when its time to change the oil, if you look in your manual that's also what it says.

    Mostly stock for now, I have added a cb radio, various cheap mods and I plan on adding aftermarket wheels and other items in the future.
    Sounds like the oil change light. I would also like to point out since I do all my own oil changes is that you should still write down your miles on each oil change and go off of that vs what the car says. I say this because if you disconnect the battery for cleaning or whatever it will erase the oil change mile information from your cars computer on some cars. I'm not sure if this is true with the Tacoma's but it was the case with my 99 Firebird. So I always record the mile information after each oil change and go off of that. :cool:

    That light will start flashing at 4500 miles after the last time it was reset.

    And if it doesn't get reset, at 5,000 miles...it'll stay on constant.
