What does the spanner sign light mean on a Mitsibishi Outlander?


this usually is a maintenance reminder light the factory installs to have the driver get the car in for usually a emission component check(components that affect emissions) to make sure they are working.then they turn the light off.if maintenance has been done regularly and the check engine light(service engine soon light)hasn`t come on then you could take it to a shop that has the capability to turn off the light and have them turn the light off.some of these will come on after so many miles(kilometers) of driving just to get the car in for a service.

Maintenance Light goes on/off/on


When your vehicle is coming up for due maintenance, the light will flash for a few when you start the car. When the time for scheduled maintenance is due, the light will remain on constantly. It's just routine maintenance, but if you haven't done it, that's your reminder. Then, you or your mechanic will have to reset that maintenance reminder light.

I am using a honda of about 198,000 miles what precautions do i take to keep going,the car looks quite good. The model is 1999


Hi there

You'll need to do maintenance check on a regular basis. Basics for that is that on city driving, you change oil every 3 months or 3,000 kilometers. Regularly check the radiator fluid to avoid overheating and lastly... you have the wheels balanced and aligned (camber alignment) whenever you feel a wiggle or when the car starts favoring the right over the left.. almost forgot, brake fluid every year to rid of the moisture that could have accumulated from the lines.

hope this helps

My daughter's '97 Honda Accord has a "maintenance required" light on the dash that's in the red. Does this mean there's something serious wrong? Or just scheduled maintenance is overdue? The milage is...


It just means it time to change your oil. If it has been changed recently and you just want to shut your light off just hold down the trip reset button. While holding it down turn the ignition on but do not start the engine. keep holding the button down for approx. 10 secs. the light should start flashing and then go out. then release the trip reset button and turn the ignition off. and the light will be reset.
