    I had my oil changed recently at the Toyota dealer (we get free oil changes), and they forgot to reset the Maintenance Required light. I don't want to have to go back there to drop the car off for this. Is there an easy way for me to do this myself? Thanks!

    Very easy...
    1) Confirm that your Odometer is set to "odometer" (ie. NOT to Trip A or Trip B)
    2) Start with the car off.
    3) Press and hold the ODO button...don't release it until the process is complete
    4) put the car in either Ignition On (2 presses of power button without pressing the brake) or Ready (one push with foot on brake).
    5) Watch the area where the odometer reading shows up...it will show zeros that become dashes, then flashes to the regular odometer reading. Once you see that you can release the odo button and turn off the car.

    This will reset the maint req. light which will flash on briefly in 4500 miles and come on and stay on in 5000 miles.
