It is time for an oil change. My 06 will do that, eventually the light will stay on. It will need to be reset. I beleive this info is in the owners manual.

Later

i know it usually flashes once car is started once, but this goes for 4-5 times after all the lights shut off.
Oil Change? Hmmmmm I'm not up for an oil change yet I'll have to take a look ...and I looked in the owners manual (LOL) first place i checked it said take to get serviced, i was just wondering if anyone knew off hand or had any suggestions

thanks!

If it wasn't reset on your last oil change it will need to be done (reset). Most places will not reset this if you are having your oil changed by someone.

Maybe you need an oil change or you're close to needing one.

Maybe not. See above posts. It will NOT reset itself after an oil change.

It means you either need an oil change or the last time you got one it wasnt reset. It is normal my 06.5 did this already and i called the dealership right away and it turned out that the last time i had my oil changed it wasnt reset. It's perfectly normal nothing to worry about. If your not due for an oil change then just reset it.

i have NEVER had a Scion/Toyota service tech reset the timer while at the dealer for scheduled oil changes. i always have to do it myself after the fact--good thing it's so easy to do : )
