    The "How To" is in your owners manual.
    2004 Tundra V8 Limited Access Cab 4X4, Michelin 265/65/R17 LTX-AT2's, Auto Dim Comp/Temp Mirror, Aero Turbine #2525 muffler, Access Roll Up Cover, Optima D31A battery, Multi-Vex adaptive outside mirrors, Eclipse AVN5510 Nav unit and Sirius SIR-ECL1 tuner, as of 10/07 pictures in my photo gallery

    2003 Camry SE V6 Navigation, Sirius, Lunar Mist
    Optima 34R battery

    If a combo of all these whizz bangs met their claims you'd have to siphon gas out of your tank every second day and sell the excess horsepower on the third????
    If your engine doesn't consume ANY oil it will seize???

    Salem108,

    Like LGL002 stated it tells you how to reset it in your owners manual. Basically it is a reminder of your oil change every 4,500 miles it will flash and it will come on solid when you hit the 5,000 mile mark. You have to hold down the "trip" till it resets or something like that.

    Hope this information is helpful.

    I have a 2003 Highlander. This vehicle has a 'featured design' that inadvertantly pulls a hose while changing the air filter. Of course, this triggers the check engine light. I disconnect the battery for about a minute and reconnect. This resets the light for this car, and I'd bet it'll do the same for yours.

    From section 1-6, page 124 of the 2005 Camry Owner's Manual

    (m) Engine Oil Replacement Reminder
    Light (for vehicles sold in U.S.A.)
    This light acts as a reminder to replace
    the engine oil.
    This light will come on when the ignition
    key is turned to “ON” and will go off after
    about a few seconds.
    When you drive for about 7200 km (4500
    miles) after the engine oil replacement,
    this light illuminates for about 3 seconds
    and then flashes for about 12 seconds
    with the ignition key turned to the “ON”
    position. If you continue driving without
    replacing the engine oil, and if the distance
    driven exceeds 8000 km (5000
    miles), the light will come on after the
    ignition key is turned to “ON” position.
    The light will remain on thereafter.
    If the light is flashing, we recommend that
    you replace the engine oil at an early
    opportunity depending on the driving and
    road conditions. If the light comes on,
    replace it as soon as possible.
    The system must be reset after the engine
    oil replacement. Reset the system by
    the following procedure:
    1. Turn the ignition key to the “ACC” or
    “LOCK” position with the odometer
    reading shown. (For details, see
    “Odometer and two trip meters” on
    page 115 in this Section.)
    2. Turn the ignition key to the “ON” position
    while holding down the trip meter
    reset knob.
    Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds.
    The odometer indicates “000000”
    and the light goes off.
    If the system fails to reset, the light will
    continue flashing.

    FYI. For "some" 2007 Tundra models (not especified in the manual) you have to put the Trip A on, not the odometer.
