Locate the button used to toggle between your trip odometer, which should be near the speedometer display. Press the button and hold it down. Turn your vehicle's ignition to the "acc" setting while holding the button. Do not crank the vehicle. Hold the position for five seconds and turn the ignition key off. Release the button. The maintenance light will be reset and will illuminate again the next time service is due.

This didn't work for my 2006 Corolla, but I was able to figure it out. First, make sure display is in ODO (not TRIP A or B). Turn ignition to LOCK. Press and hold the trip reset button. Turn ignition to ON (do not start engine) and watch the dashes count down until it displays 000000. Release and you are done.

Thank you Tenspeed. It worked great for my 08 Sienna. Now, I can reset it myself and not be bothered by that stupid light that comes on after 3,000 mile.
