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.

I have 2007 honda civic and need to reset the service light?


  1. Edit Step 15 ¶ When it's time to change the oilin your Civic, the maintenance light (orange wrench) will appear on your dash, as well as a B1 message, showing an oil life of 15% or less. To reset the Oil Life % gauge, press and hold the SEL/RESET button for about 10 seconds until the Oil Life message begins to flash.

How do I turn off check engine wrench after oil change 2012 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Liter Engine


Some service indicators can be reset and some owners handbooks give instructions for doing so. Some indicators can only be reset using dedicated diagnostic equipment.
VW use both types depending on whether the vehicle is programmed for normal service intervals or longlife intervals. I suggest you seek advice from your local dealer.

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 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!!!

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?


The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

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

Light coming on and dont know what it means


hi jeff
this sounds like it is the service light is on, what happens is, manufacturers give you a certain amount of miles before the next service, and what this is telling you is that it is due for the next one, or it is overdue its regular service interval, hence the wrench sign/oil light, its not your low on oil it need changing...hope this helps please vote thanks

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.
