Start the engine and as Ray Gallant said, start pressing buttons and see what happens. When you find the correct button, hold it in for a couple of seconds and that usually resets it. My reset button is on the end of one of my column stalks, so try the buttons on the end of your indicator, lights, radio stalks etc.

2008 pontiac g6 security light stays on t/c flashes then while driving the dash lights flicker and odometer says error.


Odometer
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays a season odometer and a trip odometer. Momentarily press the trip/reset switch in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip/reset switch for greater than 2 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer. The odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the body control module (BCM). The BCM uses the vehicle speed information from the engine control module (ECM) to calculate the odometer. The odometer displays 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The IPC stores a backup copy of the odometer value incase the IPC stops receiving a valid odometer value from the BCM. The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected.

Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Cant find where the mileage is stored


This is right from GMC service repair manual
Odometer
The vehicle odometer is calculated and stored electronically in the instrument panel cluster (IPC). The base IPC contains a season odometer and a trip odometer. The uplevel IPC contains a season odometer and two trip odometers. Momentarily press the trip/reset switch on the IPC in order to toggle between the season odometer and the trip odometer. Press the trip/reset switch for greater than 2 seconds, while the trip odometer is displayed, in order to reset the trip odometer.
The IPC calculates the mileage based on the vehicle speed signal circuit from the engine control module (ECM). The odometer will display 'error' if an internal IPC memory failure is detected. The odometer displays either miles or kilometers as requested by the activation of the Personalization button on the steering wheel controls.

How do you reset the maintenance light on a 2008 four runner


Identify that it is indeed the maintenance light that is on.

With the car off, insert key into the ignition and turn the key to the on position without starting the vehicle.

Change to odometer so it reads the total miles and not the trip mileage. See the blue arrow in photo for the location of the button to change odometer from trip mileage to total mileage.

Hold the reset button until the maintenance light goes out.

I have a 2008 corolla. It has an auto light when the car needs an oil change. I need to know how to reset it.


Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

I know you have the solution by now by Im submitting this post anyway.

To reset the oil maintence:

Have the car in a secure location with the engine off

1. Press the ingition button once, do not have your foot on the break pedal
2. Make sure you have the instrument cluster (panel on left hand side below gauges) open
3. The button marked "reset" depress it for 30 seconds and the "oil maintenance," should be reset.

Hope that helps.
