Question about 2005 Toyota Camry Solara
I was on a road trip with my 2005 Solara convertible when the maint. light came on. Its never done that before and the car is running fine and giving me 28 MPG like it always has while on the road. Using the formula offered in this form about how to re-set it by getting the odo display to show the total miles driven and pushing and holding the trip reset button and then turning the key on does not get any response at all even though I've held that button in for over 2 minutes. I also tried it by resetting both trip meters to zero then holding the reset button in while starting the car and holding the button for again over 2 minutes and that did not turn off the ''maint'' light either. I read about that method in another car repair forum. Is there ANOTHER way to try or am I stuck taking it to a dealer and spending big bucks.
Thanks in advance for your help!
I own a dealership, and you are NOT stuck taking it to a dealer.
This is how you do it:
1. Turn the key on
2. Verify that the ODO dislays your 59+K miles; NOT trip A or trip B; you MUST see "ODO" displayed
3. Turn the key OFF
4. Push in and HOLD the trip reset button. Do NOT release it until advised...
5. Turn the key to the "ON" position, do NOT start the car.
6. Obsrve the odometer. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, 3, 2, 1 dashes, and then 5 zeros
7. The mileage you started with will return.
8. Release the trip reset button.
9. Start the car verify that the light is out.
If thi does not work, and it should, please get back to me.

Ed: My car will not "Advise" me as noted in step #4 of the above procedure. I did as you said and held the reset button in and was able to count slowly to 500 with the key "off" and the ODO never changed from the mileage which is now 60390.
Thanks for trying to help though.

Turn ignition to "ACC" and press the odometer button until the display reads actual mileage (not Trip A or B).
Turn ignition off.
Hold the same button down that you used in step 1.
While holding the button, turn ignition to 'ON'.
The 'Maint Reqd' light should blink and go out.
