Resetting "Maintenance" Light

How do I reset my “maintenance required” light on my '03 Toyota Camry after getting an oil change?

without starting the engine hold down the trip/ odomoter button and turn the vehicle on but don’t start it. if the procedure was done right you’ll see 2 dashes blinking where the mileage is normally followed by 5 zeros. after the zeros are displayed the light has been reset. you can find this info in your owners manual under oil reset procedure/ maintenance reminder. hope this helps, Steve.
