Tip & How-To about Scion TC
To remove the "maintenance needed" light from your dash display:
1.) Insert the key into the ignition
2.) Hold the "odometer reset" button on the dash
3.) Turn the key to the "on" position DON"T START VEHICLE and wait for the dashes/hyphens to countdown, and then "zeros" will flash
4.) Release the "odometer reset" button, and start your car.
Maintenance light should be gone after this is complete. For future reference, this will work everytime. If you have any cases where is doesn't work, you must have performed it incorrectly. The "maintanence" light is generic and only runs on a timer, and your service provider is suppose to reset it after they perform maintanence

Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.
Insert the key in the ignition.
Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.
Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.
Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.
Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.
Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.
