You're An Idiot
You originally took your car in BECAUSE THE FREAKING light was blinking. You got your oil changed ... and "supposedly" (hahahaha), they reset the light... and you drove off ..... and you just didn't notice that the light was still blinking???????? Oh my God!!!! You are a total idiot!!!!
I don't think that's the case, at all!!!!
Instead, they DID reset the freaking maintenance light .... because THEY would have seen that it was ON when they brought your car out, when it was finished ....
So ... they DID reset it...
However, something else is wrong..... because the light has come back on and it's NOT even time to change your freaking oil .... You JUST had it changed.
My wife has a Prius 2009 .... guess what? Two weeks ago, she went and had her oil changed ..... Why???? Because the freaking light was on ... Makes sense, right? My wife is VERY particular ... and had the idiots at the dealer "forgot" to reset the light, I for sure would have heard about it... I mean ... it's RIGHT freaking there... Right in front of you!!! It's like a brand new car!!! My wife doesn't screw around with that ... if the light blinks, she tells me cuz she's a worry wart ...
So .... She explained to me, that a couple of days ago, she had to brake extremely hard in order to avoid hitting a motor cycle.... and this was like 3 days ago....
Hmmmmm.... All the sudden the maint reqd light is flashing 6 times and goes out AND the wife TELLS me about it.
So, I tell my wife to take the car in and have it checked.... So she did that, this morning.... Sandra, from Toyota of Oxnard, a complete IDIOT, when my wife brought the car in, asked my wife "Did you have your oil changed recently?" (a very VALID question with a very STUPID solution coming) ... and my wife said "Yes..." and then the idio said to my wife, "Well, they probably forgot to reset it ... here I'll reset for you...." and proceeded to reset it, and show my wife how to do it....
My wife comes home, calls me on the phone, and says "It's fixed...."
I am so pissed off at that dealership... They SUCK to heaven's high!!!
1. The tech should NOT have assumed it was the oil change issue ... Why? Because IF the dealership did NOT reset the light, they would have caught it right then and there .... and my wife would have taken the car RIGHT BACK cuz she would notice that light is still flashing.... So, for them to say "they probably forgot" is the absolute lamest thing I have ever heard and is a cheap cop out of having to check the car out.
2. Because they simply reset it and didn't check anything out, means they sent the car away with an existing problem IF there was one, due to the hard breaking that had occurred, given there IS a breaking problem and perhaps the flashing was related to the incident.
3. Toyota is an idiot at Oxnard, California. SHAME ON YOU!!!!
So .... don't be too quick to assume it's got something to do with the oil change ... trust me ... you're NOT that dumb to NOT notice the light is still flashing AFTER you got your oil changed and got in and started up your car... and Toyota isn't that stupid either NOT to notice the maintenance light still flashing AFTER they start up the car AFTER they changed the oil.
And the people posting about resetting the light under the circumstances you've stated are idiots too!!! Especially those who talk about the freaking light flashing after 4500 miles .... GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! yes that's true ... BUT, that's NOT freaking problem!!!! The problem is this person JUST HAD THE OIL changed a MONTH AGO!!!!!!!! Are you telling me the OP didn't notice this light flashing for an entire MONTH?????
NOW, IF the OP had driven the car for 4500 miles in one month, my apologies..... However, they don't state that ... and therefore, still an idiot.
