Maint Reqd light won't reset on my 2011

I changed the oil and have been trying to reset it and can't get it to work.

I'm setting the odometer to actual mileage, taking the key out, holding down the reset knob and putting the key in and setting it to the on position. I've tried holding the knob down for 5 seconds, 30 seconds and then a minute or so and nothing. What the hell am I doing wrong? I've tried doing it different ways and nothing works.

From elsewhere on TW.com...

To reset you Maintenance Required light:
1. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown.

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 second. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off.

NOTE: You will see a series of dashes that count down while the system resets itself

If the system fails to reset, the light will continue to flash!

You must re-perform the procedure

the 11's need trip A showing instead of the odo. If you have the white cluster.

I saw that, and I've been trying it. It's not working. I'm wondering if they possibly changed it for the 2011. Or maybe something is wrong with mine.

It flashes when you start the engine but turns off after a bit when you are at 4500 miles, stays on all the time when you hit 5000 miles and flashes all the time when you go over 5500ish.

Hmm, I'm at 6k right now and it's on solid. Going out to
start it to see if it flashes....

EDIT: stays on solid.

Oh I wasn't sure about the mileage. I'm ready to change the oil as the 5000 mark comes up.

that's why I thought it was odd that it was solid and not
flashing, hope it's not an issue this soon!

Mine never goes to flashing... I changed my oil about ~3500 miles before heading home from AZ earlier this year and forgot to re-set the light. Drove about 2000 over 5000 and it only stayed solid.

Hmm. I thought I read someone that it started flashing. All well. If I was designing the warning system I would make it flash and beep at you.

Why in the hell would Tonka change the light reset from total mileage to trip? That seems like a dumb thing to do for no apparent reason at all.

Toyota is probably like the company I work for. They hire all these morons and throw whatever title at them. When the question if they guy does anything he changes something stupid like ODO to trip A around so he keeps getting his $250K a year.

Thanks for this! been following the instructions in the manual and it wasn't working, searched and found this and it worked first time after setting it to Trip A. TW is so much more helpful than the dealership or manual. Thanks again.
