Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage

This is a salvaged 2006 Honda without the handbook. I know the wrench light means that she needs an interval check or oil change but what does the negative mileage mean? When she pushes the button, the odometer will show the correct mileage for the car.

The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

What does the wrench warning light on my dashboard of my 2007 civic mean?


it usually means you are due for an oil change unless the last place that changed oil did not reset the light. Some Odometer displays will show you the oil life when you switch through the displays.

My 06 Jetta 2.5L has a maintenance wrench, clock and 700 showing where the odometer is when I turn my car on. What does that mean? Thanks for your help.


It means your car needs to be serviced. You are probably at a recommended mileage service.

I hope this helps.

My toyota corolla 2006 model has the maint. required lights on. what does that mean?


It means your car needs an oil change, based on mileage. If you take your car to get the oil changed, they can reset the light for you. If you want the light off now, try holding in the odometer reset button, with the key on but engine off, until little dashes appear then one by one dissapear. This procedure may need to be done either on the odometer total mileage or trip A mileage or trip B mileage.

Step 1: Have car off.

Step 2: Push and hold in trip reset button.

Step 3: While still holding button in, turn key to ON, but engine off. Wait for the little dashes to appear and disapear. If it doesn't work on the odometer setting. before turning key off, switch to Trip A setting. If the procedure doesn't work on the odometer setting or Trip A, try Trip B setting.

Step 4: Turn key off. Then start car. Maint. required light should be off.

My 2006 VW jetta has a symbol of a wrench and it's meaning is not in the manual. What does the wrench symbol mean?


This means that your vehicle requires service. Something is wrong. You can take it to Autozone and they will put it on their diagnostic machine for free. And tell you what is wrong. Usually nothing major. Just needs to be checked out.
PLEASE RATE by checking one of the 4 thumbs ups!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!!!

The service light w/a wrench symbol is on . What does it mean?


Hi there,

This is merely the "Service Due Indicator" which means your vehicle has travelled the mileage interval (typically 7,500 miles/10,000km), since it was last reset at the previous service.

Refer to your handbook on how to reset the Service Indicator (usually by holding the odometer button down for around 10sec's).


Cheers,

Scott

Last night, i startred my car and the wrench wartning light came on and it stated on the odometer that it couldnt read the odometer. It felt as if it could get enough power to move. I turned off the car....


The wrench warning lamp, usually means trhat it is time to service the car, it is activated by the odometer, when it rteaches the service interval mileage from the last time it was set.

How to reset the odometer after change the oil in 2006 honda acc rd



It is illegal to reset the odometer (total mileage the car has travelled, which is now how the odometer is defined), but if you mean the trip meter:
To reset a trip meter, display it, and then press and hold the Select/Reset knob until the number resets to ‘‘0.0’’.
Hope this helps you.

Odometer stopped working


IF YOUR SPEEDO IS WORKING THEN YOUR VSS IS OKAY, BAD VSS WILL STOP SPEEDO AND USALLY CAUSE HARD SHIFTING. NORMALLY ODO IS CONTROLLED BY SERVO MOTOR WHICH MAY HAVE WENT OUT. CHECK EBAY FOR REPAIR SERVICES OR SIMPLY GET A SALVAGE CLUSTER AND HAVE MILEAGE RESET

2006 Honda Accord Service lights


put the key in the ignition (don't turn it) push the odometer reset button and hold it. turn the key to the on position (don't start the engine) and continue to hold the button until you see all the little hyphens go away. Now I know that works on toyota cars and i'm pretty sure it works with the newer hondas
