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.
