Resetting Service Required Light

I change my own oil but the damned service required light came on and really did not want to take my Yaris to the dealer to get the light reset so I tried a few things, this is what I think I did to get it off.
1. Turn the ignition all the way on.
2. Turn the ignition off.
3. Press in and hold the trip meter reset button.
4. Turn the ignition all the way on. I noticed the service button blinking
5. After about five seconds, turn the ignition off. Then release the trip meter reset button
6. Turn the ignition all the way on. The service light comes on and then goes off after a few seconds.
If someone else has one of these lights on, give it a try and see if I remember correctly.

While holding a metal rod and standing on one foot?..lol. J/K sounds like a good tip.

Also found in your owners manual, and in about 10 posts from the past fro here.

Nice bump though, this topic on reseting after an oil change should become a sticky.

stickied, much more convenient than unplugging the battery for a few minutes!

The odometer has to be in the "Trip A" setting first.

I took my car to the dealership and watched them reset it.

1. With the odometer on trip A and the ignition off, press and hold the reset button.
2. Turn the ignition on (no need to start the car) and wait for it to start blinking. It will count down and when it's done, it'll be reset.

Is that the same spot as the aux input for Ipod?

If your car is ever locked out of gear, it allows you to move the shifter in and out of gears so it can be driven to the dealer.

Toyota states it in the manual, rather well.....

Buried on page 121 of the handy manual.....

ref: 2007 Yaris hatchback from Jan '06 Prod (OM52700U), page 121, item (m):

"
.....

The system must be reset after the engine oil replacement. Reset the system by the following procedure:

1. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the trip A reading shown.

2. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob.

Hold down the knob for at leat 5 seconds. The indication light flashes and the bars displayed in the odometer disappear gradually. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.

If the system fails to reaset, the light will continue flashing. "

Well these instructions seem reasonable. Toyota isn't telling us the mileage interval (probably 5000 miles) and it probably can be reset anytime, and the light will turnon when 5000 miles has elapsed.

Its preset into the computer. You just changed it before it came on. At least when it does come on, you will already know the reset.

This trick just saved me a bunch of annoyance--for a different issue. I've had my hatch for 2 weeks. Today I was on a round of trips, and on one re-start, the Power Steering light came on, just as I noticed there was no Power Steering. I just tried this re-set, and it worked--and now I have Power Steering again.
