Default maint required lite is on

I have a 2004 camry with 9800 miles on it.
The maint required lite is on. The dealership says it is for oil change and
tire rotation. I have done both but the lite is still on. The dealership
says they will turn it off for $25.00.
Does anyone know how I can turn it off myself?

1. Make sure your mileage display is set on the odometer.
2. Turn off the car.
3. Hold down the odometer switch while starting the car.
4. Keep holding down the odometer switch for a couple of seconds and the
light should reset.

If you took the car to the dealer to get the service performed, have them
turn it off at no charge. That is their responsibility. If you took it
elsewhere, read the manual as it is listed clearly there.

Stevef is correct. The procedure should be in there. A friend of mine
has a 2004 Accord. The dealer serviced it and forgot to turn off the
light. He found the procedure in the owners manual.





"When a legislature undertakes to proscribe the exercise of a citizen's
constitutional rights it acts lawlessly and the citizen can take matters into
his own hands and proceed on the basis that such a law is no law at all."
- Justice William O. Douglas

I would find another dealer. A decent one would have told you to check the
manual for instructions rather than try to rip you off $25.
