Thank you this help my 2006 corolla! It worked i did everything to it from spark plugs filters and oil change this was the only thing that actually worked


Scroll to trip A then hold the button down while ur key is in the on position, turn it to off while still holding the button, then turn back on and wait for the ----- to go away


I have a 2007 Camry XLE with pushbutton start, After reading and trying the methods, I can report that for me, the solution was:

1. Do not step on the brake

2. Press and release the START button

3. If the odometer is not illuminated, press the START button again

4. Place the odometer to TRIP A

5. Press and release the START button (odometer should no longer be illuminated)

6. Press and HOLD the odometer set button

7. Press and release the START button while holding the odometer button

8. If the odometer is not illuminated, press the START button again while still holding the odometer button

9. Keep holding the odometer button until the countdown completes

10. This should result in a cleared MAINTENANCE REQUIRED light the next time you start your car

Undo your battery for a couple of minutes. This worked on the older models. I believe this is the procedure for yours.

Turn the ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads ODO (not Trip A or B).

Turn the ignition key to OFF.

Hold in the same button you used in step 1.

While holding the button in, turn the ignition key to ON.

The ODOMETER will change to:

5 dashes - - - - -

Then 4 dashes - - - -

Then 3 dashes - - -

Then 2 dashes - -

Then 1 dash -

THEN all zeros 0 0 0 0 0

Then back to the correct mileage.

Then the Maintenance Required light should blink and go out.

The owner manuals for 2009-2011 models say that display should be on Trip A. But the owner manual for 2007 model does not provide the instructions at all. Are you sure that it should read actual mileage and not trip A ?


I am sorry it should say ODO and not the actual mileage. The actual miles is for a 2005. Apparently it is the same process but you look for the odometer to say different things in different years. I would have figured all Corollas in the same generation would say the same thing.


+ nice research


Have you ever done it yourself ? The reason I am asking is that the procedure described in ehow and wiki.answers contradicts to: 1) the owner manual for the 10th generation of corolla (i.e. 2009-2011);

2) videos on youtube (the technician selects Trip A). That is why I am interested to hear from people that actually performed "Maint Req" reset. Thank you.


Hi again,

I just found that the owner's manual for my 2007 Corolla has the procedure on page 110. It is exactly as ABCellars said. Thanks again.
