Your machine has a mechanical part that is either just sticking or needs a small adjustment. The dash (or underscore in upper case) is the character that is preselected when typing. When you hit another character, the machine either adds units or takes them away to give you that specific character. Your machine is not resetting fast enough so it is giving you an extra cycle and that is why you get the dash. A trained IBM technician should be able to resolve this issue for you.

2008 Highlander Maint Req'd reset proceedure


This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

My speedometer doesnt work


Without key in ignition, depress and hold down the trip reset button by the speedometer until a code appears. Release button and the gauge cluster will go through a self diagnosis ( needles will move around and dash lights will blink). When needle returns to zero and lights go off, diagnosis will be completed and speedometer will be reset. Very easy fix.

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help


    • 1

      Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.

    Here's how you reset your maintenance light.

    To reset the light,
    Turn the ignition on
    Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
    1.Turn the key off
    2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
    3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
    4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
    Your'e done.

    If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".

    Maintenace light


    This may sound difficult, but it is really simple; the reset takes 30 seconds; here you go:

    Get in the car.
    Turn the key ON (do not start it)
    Observe the odometer. Is it on ODO (total mileage driven?
    If not, depress the reset stick by the speedometer from trip a or
    trip b until ODO is shown, and the total mileage traveled is displayed.
    Turn the key OFF
    Press and HOLD the reset stick on the instrument panel (trip a/trip b button), and HOLD it until advised to release it.
    Turn the key ON (do NOT start the engine)
    Observe the odometer: You will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, and the 1 dash, followed by 5 zeros. The total mileage you started with will be redisplayed.
    You may now release the reset stick.
    Start the engine, the maint light will be reset.
    What procedure does: It adds 5,000 miles to your odometer, and the light will come back on in 5 K miles.
