    1. Turn on the ignition and set your ODO display to "Trip A".
    2. Turn off your ignition. Hold down the trip meter reset button and turn the ignition on. Keep the button pushed in.
    3. The maintenance required light will flash for a few seconds. when it turns off, let go of the reset button.

    The the display will change for 1 second and go back to the mileage. That's it.

    Great information for a tech/DIY section. Thanks Taz.

    At least we don't need a $150 tool to reset the maintence lights on some other vehicles. I jsut bought a new one, hopefully will save me some time at work. Having to hook up one of our 10 different scanners to reset the stupid oil light can take up a lot of time!

    Mine has to be in trip mode rather than the normal ODO mode to turn off.

    OG instructions have been changed to reflect that the ODO display needs to be set to Trip A for the reset. My bad, those were the instructions for my Scion xB.

    It is triggered automatically when the odometer reaches certain mileage points to indicate that periodic service, (oil/filter change, etc.), is needed....not that something is wrong. Its a reminder....

    Its an automatic thing that some of us flaky people live by. My cars would probably be dead by now...

    I'm still amazed we don't have a low fuel light like every other Toyota I've ever seen, ever!

    Must be the same knucklehead engineer who decided one pathetically low and dim light was all we needed on the inside. (A fact that I've hammered in every iQ survey they've ever sent me.)

    We do have a low fuel light, when the bottom bar on the fuel gauge starts flashing it's low. I would have gladly traded the fuel gauge for a more accurate one though.
