Tip & How-To about Toyota Corolla
I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:
Turn the key ON
Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.
Turn the key OFF.
Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.
Turn the key ON (do not turn the key to Start)
Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.
Release the black trip meter reset stick.
This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change
NOTE: Newer cars have a slightly different procedure. The reset starts on the "TRIP A" setting, as opposed to the ODO setting. Depending on the year of your car, one or the other will work.
Hope this helps!
If this does help you, a 4-thumbs rating, or a 'VERY HELPFUL' rating would be greatly appreciated.
