The answer is in the manual. I don't remember the exact details, but they are like "keep the car on ODO, press button, keep pressed as you turn ignition on, let it show change, then let go button, turn off." Not difficult and, as I said , in the manual.

The procedure to reset the oil maintenance log is included in the manual. I just changed my oil at 2300 miles; followed the procedure for resetting and it worked! Good luck!

With the car off hold down the trip meter reset button and switch the car on while holding the trip meter. You will see a count down on the center of the dash. When it has finished, release. You have to start with odo in display not trip A but not a 100% sure about that. It may be you have to start in trip A when you start. One or the other.

The procedure that worked for me on my 2010 RX 350 is as follows:
1. Make sure the trip/odo is in the Trip A selection.
2. Hold down the ODOD/TRIP button while turning the car on.
3. It immediately goes to resetting oil maintenance message and quickly reset it.

I must be dense. First of all I searched the manual for a half-hour and couldn't find the oil maintenance required reset procedure. I searched because the very clear and concise procedures offered above didn't work. I tried leaving the ODO display on each choice and then turned the car off. With the ODO button pushed in I turned the car back on. The Oil Maintenance Required display is still on. Any other suggestions? (If you know what page in the 2010 RX350 owners manual the procedure is I would sure appreciate it). This is very frustrating for what appears to be a small, seemingly simple, thing. Please don't take the time to confirm that I'm dense, my family already knows that, and I'm trying to avoid the truth.

If it's like my 09RX350: ODO must be on total miles. Turn motor off. Hold the ODO button down and keep it down. Turn key to ignition setting while still holding ODO button down. The odometer reading will indicate it is re-setting and when it is reset - and only then - you release the ODO button. Turn key off. Then turn engine on and maintenance light should be 'out'. Good luck!
[I don't have the 2010 manual, so cannot indicate page. If you want to know page in 2009 manual, I could probably look it up.}

Thanks for the effort. There's no key, just the ignition button on the 2010's. No matter what display I leave the ODO on the procedure doesn't work. Guess I'll have to call the dealer. Thanks everyone.

Finally THE ANSWER. For all who want to know. I fyou have a 2010 RX350 with push button start here's the way to reset the Oil Maintenance Required light:

1. Odometer Must be in Trip A display
2. Turn the car off
3. Hold the Odometer button down and continue to hold throught all steps to follow
4. Do NOT put your foot on the brake
5. Push the ignition button twice. Do not hold
6. Watch the display (continue to hold the Odometer button)
7. The Oil Maintenance light will reset after a few seconds
8. FInally, release the odometer button.

The directions listed in the owner's manual are totally FUBAR. They were written by an idiot; are completely non sequitur. Use Roy's directions; thanks Roy (if that is your real name) :rolleyes:  :cheers: .

There's 2 really good videos on Youtube that show you how to reset the oil maintenance warning messages. I'll post both video links below.

I personally played the Youtube video from my iPhone while sitting in my car after I realized that the dealer forgot to do this for me after they just completed the engine misfire CSP (recall) on my 2006 GS300.

One of these how-to videos should work for you  :whistles:
