SOURCE: 2008 Scion TC Warning Light

This is already covered in the owner's manual, but here it is again as a quick reference.

Every 5,000 miles, a "Maintenance Required" light will blink for the first couple seconds after you start your car. It will continue to do so until it is reset. If it is not reset, than it will eventually turn on your "Check Engine" light. The purpose of the maintenance required light is to remind TC owners to change their oil. The factory recommended interval is 5,000 miles, but you can reduce the interval the light will come on to a mileage interval of your choice.

1. Before starting, make sure that the odometer is not on one of the trip mileage odometers but is displaying the standard odometer.

2. With the car off, press and hold down the odometer reset button. While still holding it, start the car.

3. The light should continue to blink for a couple seconds and than disappear. That will reset the light for another 5,000 miles.

4. The following are steps to change the interval in which the maintenance required light comes on. Right after you turn on the ignition while holding the reset button, you'll notice that the odometer display will show 5 bars. Each bar corresponds to a 1,000 miles. As each bar disappears, the interval will increase (0 bars = 5k, 1 bar = 4k). Release the reset button at the interval you desire.

Never mess with the airbag or airbag light. Take it to a Dealer. It's dangerous, you could make the airbag deploy accidentally.

HO DO I CHECK MY LIFTERS AND VALVES IN A 2008 SCION TC TO SEE WHICH ONE IS MAKING THE TAPPING NOISE?


my suggestion is take it to a pro who will check valve clearances to see which one is loose, than replace or adjust the culprit, its to large of clearance that creates the tap either due to wear or collapsed lifter, not sure but the scion may have an ohv engine and so no lifters and may just need adjustment on the rocker.

I lost the owner's manual of 2008 scion tc. This flower vase shape light with exclamatioin point in the middle just came on. What does it mean?


It sounds like the tire pressure monitor warning light. Does the light look like this?
c64c8b9.jpgCheck and adjust the pressure in all the tires (most Toyotas even monitor the spare tire pressure so check that also). If you find one tire with significantly lower air pressure then the rest bring the car to a repair shop to have them find and repair the leak. Once the air in the tires are correct the light will go off.

My car starts rough and its stops with me whats the problem its a 2008 scion tc i just changed the spark plugs am completely lost the engine light is on what is the problem?


you shouldn't need plugs until 100,000 miles. if the engine light is on you need to run a scanner on the car to see why. something has failed like maybe an injector. parts stores will run scanner for free hoping you will buy the parts from them. what about warranty? drivetrain sometimes has longer warranty. good luck

We were driving my car down the road and it made a banging noise and just turned off...what could it be and is it expensive to fix? 2005 Scion TC


sounds like it needs a motor... check your oil and coolant... motor either ran out of oil or overheated either way the engine is probably smoked... most engine jobs run around 5000 dollars
