There's usually a page in the manual under "oil change" that explains some means of holding the odometer button in while turning the ignition key to accesory or run (but not start) until the light goes out.

This resets a distance counter for those that do their own oil changes.

If you have a bigger problem, (EGR valve, O2 sensor, etc... ) this might not work - you'll need to figure out why it's blinking - often a paper clip in the right sockets of the diagnostic connector will cause the light to flash some pattern, to indicate where the problem is. Most of this is available in a "Hanes" or "Chilton" manual for your make, in the local library.

My maintaince light came on after getting oiled changed. How does this get reset?

Try this procedure first:

1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If it is the SRS light, a different procedure will be required.

Wrence light and engine light both came on the morning--what does this mean?

The wrench light means you need maintaince done like getting your oil changed. It can be turned off by resetting it. The check engine lite could have came on because of a problem as simple as the gas cap being loose. It also might be time for your car to have it's normal service interval maintenance done. Good luck!

Right rear tran signal lamp does not work. changed light bulb still does not work. Front turn signal lamp blinks real fast

Please check the cables lead to your rear turn lamp for loose connection. Both turning lamps ( rear and front) should work to keep turning lights back to normal blink.

Maint. light is on ??? 2000 nissan sentra ,runs good , but maintaince light is on . how to turn it off ?

there may be an error detected by the car's computer. try first to remove one of the battery terminals for 1-2mins. after bringing it back, check if the light is still on. If it is you need to have a scanner to run some diagnostics to detect the error and perform troubleshooting depending on the error.

The maintinence light is to remind you to have your vehicle serviced at its major service points. The light comes on usually around 90k miles and the big things to have checked are the O2 sensors and tune components.
I hope this helped.

Maintaince ligth reset

It will tell you how in the owners manual if you have one. If not, try turning your ignition key to the on position without starting the car and press on the brake pedal 5 times in a row.

Maintenance light is blinking for a while in 2005 honda accord

To reset your light do the following:

1-Push maintence reminder button in and hold it in. (thats the button near the speedo on the insturment cluster)
2-Turn the ignition to the on position while holding button in.
3-Wait several seconds until the light goes out, then let go of the button.
It is now reset

Now this is the maintaince light and not the check engine light correct? If then just follow above and do that.

Also if you don't use Fram oil filters you can go 5000miles on your oil and be safe. Even honda says you can do 7000miles but 5000 gives you a buffer if you need to go over.
