Thanks, Mike.  I couldn't find it in the manual.

Neither could I, and that's why I ended up doing a Google search.  And
_that_ told me it's on page 104 of the 2004 manual.

Followed your instructions and light is now off.  It was easy.  Thanks

The Maint Reqd light is only on North American NHW20 Prius.

At 4500 miles since last reset, the Maint Reqd light will blink at you
on startup (very easy to miss seeing it).  At 5000 miles since last
reset, the Maint Reqd light will stay on solid.

It's just a reminder by miles that you are due for the next scheduled
maintenance.  It is not smart (doesn't go by time, or do any oil
analysis), just a mile counter. Usually that is an oil change/tire
rotation:  http://smg.toyotapartsandservice.com/

Should your dealer forget to reset it, or you go to an independent
mechanic or DIY, you can reset the light yourself.

Page 122-123 of the US 2004 Prius Owner's Manual (Section 2-5
"Operation of Instruments and Controls: Gauges, Meters and Service
Reminder Indicators", item (j) in the "Service reminder indicators and
warning buzzers" section.)
