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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help. I wasn't sure what type of reader was necessary to fix the problem. Now I have a direction to head to be able to solve my problem"
I have a 05 Scion XB W/215000 mi My vsc ck eng light go on all the time. The dealer told me it was a little dirt speck of dirt in the timing gear and it would cost almost a thousand dollars to fix it. So I just disconnect the neg battery cable for 2 minutes and reconnect. The light stays out for about 4-6 months. when it comes on again I just repeat the steps.
