Question about 2008 Toyota Camry
I saw your response to a previous question and you mentioned resetting the maint. light. I know when I need oil changes, but sometimes it comes on before we are ready to change and it drives my wife crazy and distracts her. How do I reset? 2008 Toyota Camry
This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:
Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.
Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".
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 start the engine
Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..
Now 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.

The maint req'd light goes on when your vehicle is due for an oil change. If you've recently changed your oil - sometimes your mechanic won't reset the built in tracking settings for when you are due for another oil change. Here's how you can reset it.
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.
