This is the button that you press to display either trip mileage or the complete mileage. No matter how or when I push it, it won't display the original mileage. It last did about 4-5 months ago, but not since then. I wonder if disconnecting the battery long enough (3 minutes or so) might help the car to reset itself. I really DON'T want to take it to DEALER SERVICE as it's out of warranty. Any thoughts, anyone???

Re: Trip Odometer Button Doesn't Work!
FIRST - Welcome to GreenHybrid.
Now to the meat....
Did you press the FCD button as well?
It should cycle from trip A to trip B to original mileage w/lifetime when you press the trip. I remember I did the same thing when I first got my Insight. Actually I did it about 2 months after. I have finally figured out the proper usage of the buttons now.
'00 Insight "Wazabi" -75,000+ miles
'03 Toyota Matrix - 81,000+ miles '03 HCH-CVT-OSBM-41,000+ miles (retired 04-10-06) "I'm very secure with my little Insight, no Prius envy here."

Reason: more questions
When the FCD is on you will see arrows similar to "<===>" by the bar graph for your MPG, at this time you cannot access your trip A and B. You must press the FCD button again to turn it off so it shows your lifetime mileage and odometer readings, then you can press thetrip button to toggle trip A and B as well as resetting them.
And another possibility:
Both the instantaneous bar graph and the average fuel efficiency number can be turned off at the driver's discretion. To turn off the bar graph, press and hold the FCD button until the bar & legend disappear. To also turn off the numerical average, press and hold the FCD button again, until that disappears.
