Default maintenance light on and on...

Toyota tech's here in Canada can't reset the maintainance light in my US bought Prius. They can do it in Canadian models. Any ideas??

Page 122-123 of the US 2004 Prius Owner's Manual (Section 2-5 "Operation of Instruments and Controls: Gauges, Meters and Service Reminder Indicators", item (j) in the "Service reminder indicators and warning buzzers" section.)
(should be the same owner's manual for US/Canada, so the procedure should be the same!)

I didn't think the Canadian models had the Maint Reqd feature. Perhaps the techs were thinking of the Check Engine light?

But it is a simple process documented in the owners manual, using the ODO button.
