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.

Could be a problem with the wheel hub. Had the same problem on a Grand Am. Don't know about the HHR. I had to replace the hub. The vibration from the bad hub causes the ABS sensor to trip. When the ABS light is on, it turns the T/C off.

Stand in fromnt of the car, the cam shaft position module is located on the front of the engine to the right hand side just below the fuel rail.
