Exactly what steps are you taking, and what is the ODO showing before you start (ODO, Trip A, Trip B)?Greengirl said:My husband just took our Prius in for its first oil change at 5000 miles. He took it to a quick lube place- where they didn't turn off the maintenance light. We have followed the instructions in the manual to no avail- the light remains on. Any advice?
In fact, we probably kicked the wrong tire. I'll try again. :wink:Sanny said:The manual never tells the most important parts of the fixes. As we ALL know, you have to walk around the car twice, counter clockwise, and kick the left front tire. Some even suggest sacrificing a chicken (dumplings and carrots recommended).
If THAT doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you.
Will try the correct tire this time.hyperion said:Don't know if it will make you feel any better but I have never heard of the procedure in the manual "not working." (as long as it is used in conjunction with kicking the left front tire.)
I've also heard that it won't work on a Wednesday. I think it's because the little guy inside who turns the light off is out playing golf. But I'm not sure if that's true.rpm said:Didn't someone discover that you can't reset the light if someone is sitting in the passenger seat?
