If all else fails - consult the owner's manual under "Maintenance"

>>szliman...Your answer leads one to believe that you are changing the oil every 30,000 miles? Is that the case? Now I'm of the school that every 3000 miles for an oil change is very excessive and probably more of a marketing ploy by the oil companies, rather than a scientific reason. If you strictly drive in-town and never exceed 35 to 40 mpg for only short distances, yes your oil might need changing more often. But, if you drive in a normal manner of mixed freeway/in-town mileage, 7500 miles is a good distance. I had a Suburban that had a sensor that sampled the oil and once it reached a certain contamination level the display would say "Change Engine Oil". It seemed that the light would come on around 7000 miles. As for rotating your tires, 30,000 is WAY TOO long to wait to rotate. As for cost, Most chain tire stores will rotate your tires for nothing, even if you didn't buy your tires there. They do it as a service hoping you will come to them to buy your next set of tires.

I have a 2012 Toyota Camry and I had to turn it on then hold the Odometer button (on trip 1) down and then turn off the ignition and wait for the maint. reqd. light to stop blinking.

The manual was confusing but I eventually got there. It is a bit more complicated with keyless starting that my car has. Start car and use the reset button to move odometer reading to Trip A. Shut off engine. With foot off the brake, depress the Start button three times, while holding down the reset button. Continue holding for a few seconds and you'll see the Maint Required light turn off. I was having difficulty understanding how you get to "Ignition On" until I read that depressing the Start button changes the ignition status. First is "start" which won't happen because the brake is not depressed. The second press leads to "Accessories" and the third to "Ignition On" which is what you need to turn off the Maintenance Required light. I'm happy.
