Default Maint Reqd

Hi everybody!
My Toyota Camry 2004 (17K miles) has annoying "Maint Reqd" light on.
I just changed the oil.
What could it be?
How to turn it off?
Thanks.

I believe there is a procedure to clear the maintenance light, something
along the lines of turning your car on, but not starting it and pressing
the trip meter reset button for 10 secs...If that doesn't work just call
the dealership and ask them what the procedure is for resetting the
maintenance Required light after the maintenace has been performed. Or,
if you don't want to talk to the dealer, you can just remove your ECM1
fuse and disconnect your negative battery terminal for more than 90 secs(I
usually leave it for 5-10 min) this will clear everything from the
computer. Put your fuse back in(make sure its in the right spot, this can
cause some grief if it gets put back wrong, I've done it a few times) and
reconnect the battery. If the Light is still on, there is still a
problem, and you should recheck your oil level, air filter, drain plug,
oil filter etc. and then try resetting the computer again. Good Luck!

The procedure for turning it off is usually in the owners manual.
