How would u reset the maintaince required light after you changed the fluids?

Hi there biggryder 12!

The best way to reset the maintenence light after you have resolved the problem is to disconnect the battery.
  1. First disconnect the battery (negative terminal)
  2. Let the disconnected battery sit for at least 15 minutes
  3. After 15 minutes reconnect the negative cable
The reason to leave it disconnected for 15 minutes is to give the capasitors time to fully discharge their charge. If after doing this procedure and your light comes back on you need to check if there is any maintenence procedure that may have been missed or have the codes read.

I hope this was of assistance to you.

2007 yukon. battery goes dead in a few hours. It will do this about once every 6-12 months. Doors lock themselves when no one is near vehicle and keys are out of ignition . Does this every few months

I think you have what is called a parasitic drain. First check to make sure the light in the glove box, under hood, indicator light showing door is ajar, interior light ect all go out when they are suppose to.

If this is something that happen only once every in 6 to 12 months I think you are probably dealing with something that is human caused, something left on and not a mschanical issue. If it happens repeatedly when it does occurs then your parasitic drain is probably more of a short in the system. You can disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent yourself from getting stuck when this is going on. When this is happening you pull fuses for various systems and see if the battery still discharges the next day. If the battery is discharged the next day then those systems whose fuse were pulled are not involved. If the battery does not discharge then you have identified which systems are involved. Again this works only if you are having the battery discharge repeatedly.
