2007 Camry: "Maint Reqd" Light Problem

a) With the Engine ON click your Odometer/TripA/TripB selector knob so
the display shows TRIP A
b) Turn the car off
c) Turn the key 1 click to ACC (accessory mode)
d) While in ACC, press and hold the selector knob in (don't worry that
can't see anything on the dashboard.)
e) While you are still holding the selector knob, click the key 1 more
position to the ON position.
f) If you do it correctly, you will see the TripA display change to some
numbers and then start blinking quickly. you will also see the MAINT
REQD blinking quickly. After about 5 seconds of holding the knob in
the display should show 0000000000000 then go away.

Start the car up, and no more MAINT REQD light until you put another 4500miles on the car! (from internet)

[update: 9/6/2011]
For Ford Explorer 2008:
a) Press the TRIP/RESET button to cycle to "SETUP MENU HOLD RESET".
b) Press and hold the button until "SYSTEM CHECK HOLD RESET" is displayed, then release.
c) Single press the button to cycle to "HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL", then hold the button for 2 seconds until "OIL LIFE SET TO 100%" is displayed
