In this chapter, we’re going to be working on a 2011 Toyota Avalon, and we’re going to be resetting the maintenance light. This one’s pretty easy, you’re going to use the ODO/TRIP button as you do with all Toyotas, but instead of Trip A, we’re going to leave it on the ODO. So let’s get it going.

  1. Turn the key forward without starting it

    Push the POWER button twice with your foot off the brake pedal

  2. Display the ODO on screen

    Go to the dash, and you’ll get an ODO/TRIP button here if you select between TRIP A/B or ODO, so right here, we’re going to put that on ODO

  4. Hold down the ODO/TRIP as you turn on the car

    The next step is you’re gonna need to hold the ODO/TRIP button while you turn the key on again

  5. Keep holding the button

    After that, you’ll then see the dashes that disappear quickly in the zeros, and your maintenance light will be gone
