Question about 2008 Scion Tc
Just before my first oil change, a warning light that looks as follows came on: (!) It is located to the left of the Check Engine light, but that light is not on. I purchased this used and it did not come with an owner's manual. Does anyone know what this error means?
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.

I think the exclamation point warning light (!) is a low tire pressure indicator. check your tire pressure and make sure they're properly inflated.

With your car off push and hold the tripometer button. Then while holding the button start your car. A couple sec after you start your car, the light will go off.

The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. The lamp also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:
