If you have the owners manual it should be in there. I know each make has adifferent way to reset. Gm is key on key off and accelerator three times. I am not sure if that is exactly correct but hope it will help you to find your answer

Did the Toyota dealer change the oil? If so, you could take it back and they'll fix that up for you. Other places may not know about it or even know how to do it.

1. Turn the car on and change the odometer display to the total miles driven.
2. Turn the key off.

If you have keyless start:
3. Push the reset button of the odometer at the same time you push in the keyless button without pushing the brake pedal (this will turn on all the car systems, but not the car). Hold both buttons in (the odometer and the keyless system) for a few seconds and the warning light will turn off.

If you don't have keyless start:
3. hold the odometer toggle button down
4. turn the key on, don't start it
5. hold both until the odometer reads all -----

That ought to do it.

Flashing light shows a car and a keyh inside


Thank You Very Much for The Maintenance Required Light Info, as far as the flashing car w the key inside. I'm not sure what key we have? When we bought it it only came with one key so we tried to make a duplicate, which ended up not working because we later found out it needs a chip (or probably what I hear as the smart key?) If the light is supposed to be on (and normal) why does it need reset?

The Maint Reqd light blinks after 4,500 miles, and stays ON continuously after 5,000 miles. This is to remind you that you need an oil change. Give the info from you about your key, you do not have a smart key. You have a transponder key. Off topic, but, FYI, a Toyota dealer can program a transponder key for you.
Back to the Maint Reqd light. Here is how you reset it:
Turn the key on.
Make sure that the odometer reads "ODO", and displays the total mileage traveled...If it displays trip a or trip b, push the black button by the odometer to make the display read ODO.
Turn the key off.
Press and HOLD the black trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON. (keep holding th reset button down)
Observe the odometer display.
you will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, 11 dash, followed by five zeros, and the total mileage you started with will re-display.
Release the button.
Turn the key off.

Regarding the flashing light with the car & the key: This is the indicator to show potential theives thatyou vehicle has a sophosticated security system, and it CAN NOT be started by "hot-wiring" it. The flashing light is normal, and consumes no battery power. I hope that this helps you understand these two items better. Thanks for choosing FixYA, and the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution to you would be greatly appreciated. Glad to be of assistance; please feel free to call upon me anytime. Have a great day.
