Hello, Has the light changed colour or do you mean just come on? if changed then this could mean a service is due. Most cars nowadays have sevice interval limits programmed into the odometer/Speedo so that when certain mileage is reached it warns you.
If the light has come on unexpectidly then maybe a fault? but judging by your brief description it does look like a service is due. I would get it to a Technician or if you are capable of servicing i.e, oil, filters and general engine overhaul then after the full service try turning the ignition on holding down the buttons (for 15 seconds or so) on the speedo face this may turn out the light.
Merry Christmas,

There is a little box that is red where it says maintanance required. Is it suppost to be red? And what do i normally need to fix.


It means it is time to change your oil and can be reset by pushing in on the small cavity with a key.
But change the oil first, otherwise you will be neglecting the engine maintenance.
