I had a service station provide the normal maintenance and I can't figure out how to permanently delete the "Time For Regular Maintenance" indicator. I can't find a permanent solution in the owners manuel and I am sure that's because they want me going to the dealer for this service. Please help.
1: Turn key to position #1 2: Push, and "HOLD" the Trip Reset button. 3: After 2 seconds, keep holding the trip reset while turning the ignition switch to position #2. 4: Keep holding the trip reset button in for about 15 seconds, the amber triangle in the dash should start flashing.
Release the trip reset button when it does. Turn ignition off, on, then back off.
If that doesn't do it, you may have to see a dealer. Good luck.

It is just a service reminder and you had your service done early. To reset the light consult your owner's manual. Or--- with the key off, hold the trip odometer reset button down. Now while still holding it down, turn the key to on. Wait about 15-20 seconds and watch for the maint light to go out. When it goes out, release the odometer reset button. The light is reset for your next maintenance (7,500 miles).

Regular Maintenance is vital to keeping your car on the road. The time and effort you put into keeping up with scheduled maintenance can save you big money in the long run. Dealer
30k, 60k or 90k mile tune-ups can run from $250 for 3-4 hours of labor
and basic maintenance, to over $1,000 at places with high labor costs and additional maintenance services, such as timing belt replacement. If the mechanic identifies needed repairs, this can add a significant amount to your total. At 90K repair shops normally replace the timing belt, or timing chain. Your car require a tune up, if you have more than 30K on it. What kind of tune up your car needs depend on how many miles do you have on your car.
this light can come on even thought service is not actually due. if the service was performed and the light was not on at the time, sometimes you cannot reset them if they are not actually lit, or 99% of the time the technician forgets if the light was not on. stop by your shop and they can reset it for you in just a few moments, and for no charge. good luck!
I expect your vehicule is equipped with an EVIC (electronic vehicule information center (overhead console). Different functions and displays should be described in depth in your owner manual.
I'm not 100% familiar with your console type but I expect that you get that particular message when the specific value YOU have determined as the being the threshold before your next maintenance interval (in regard to the millage) has been reached. The normal reading of the millage 'distance to service' before next maintenance should decrease until it reachs 0 then triggers the perform service alert message. Once your maintenance is done you should be able to reset the counter which will start a new count from the specified target value.
Based on usual EVIC operation mode I would try the following procedure to reset it.
- Turn your ignition swith on
- press step console button at repetition until you get the service interval display
- then press the reset button for few seconds
Hoping I'm telling right and that it will help
I don't know for sure, but I'd imagine oil, oil filter, and air filter changes, tire rotation, brake and strut inspection, and maybe a cabin air filter change. Look in your owner's manual near the back - each service should be spelled out in there so you don't go in unprepared.
