Awesome! Worked for me also! Thanks!

i will try it, my camry dosent need the tire rotation every 5000k miles, i blew a front tire, and the tire man said its a waste of money. do it at 30000k with the oil change., i hope this works with the push button start?

>>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.
