How to Reset Data After an Oil Change in a 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid

by Justin Cupler

In 2007, Toyota jumped on the hybrid bandwagon with its Camry Hybrid offering. The 2009 Camry Hybrid came with a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that produced 187 horsepower. Toyota equipped the 2009 Camry Hybrid with a system to alert the driver, via a "Maint" light, that the vehicle needs maintenance, such as an oil change. After performing the maintenance on the 2009 Camry, this light needs reset manually. Toyota lays out a specific set of steps to reset this light.

Sit in the drivers seat and turn the hybrid system to the "On" position, but do not start the vehicle.

Press the "Disp" button on the steering wheel until "Trip A" is displayed on the instrument cluster.

Turn the hybrid system to the "Off" position. Press and hold the reset knob under the instrument cluster screen, then turn the "Power" switch to the "On" position, without starting the Camry.

Observe as "Oil Mode Reset" appears on the instrument cluster display. Hold the "Reset" button for at least five seconds, until the instrument cluster screen displays "Complete."

Turn the "Power" switch off.
