  1. Place your key into your Prius ignition until it’s on, but not started. 
  2. Click and the trip reset button found near the odometer until “Trip A” appears on your Prius center screen. 
  3. Keep holding the Prius trip reset button and turn your key back towards the “Off” position. 
  4. Turn your Prius key to the “On” position. 
  5. Continue holding your Prius reset button until you see the number near the odometer reach 0. You’ve succeeded in resetting your Toyota maintenance light!
