    Well, I was able to do it myself, and it worked. Reset the 'time for' message, after some googling: Place your left finger on the trip odometer, keep it there continuously throughout this process, turn the ignition switch to I for one second, then to II for three seconds, the I, information button will flash, let it flash ONLY three times then release your finger from the trip odometer, it should be reset.

Maintenance reqd indication light is still showing on the dashboard after have changed the oil filter and oil. What is the problem? My car is 2008 Toyota Avalon.


Set the display window to ODO.
Turn the ignition switch off.
While pressing the reset switch, turn the ignition switch on(IG). Keep pressing the reset switch for at least 5 seconds to complete reset procedure.

*IF this does not work you have be confused with the warning light, it may not be the oil life, but check engine light, refer to owners manual for clarity.

Maintenance light has turned red what does this mean


The maintenance light automatically starts flashing when you reach a certain mileage - it's to remind you that you need to do a regular maintenance: oil, filters pads, etc..

I have ust serviced my 2001 volvo s40 and now the


did the sevice light come on before you serviced it? when you "serviced" it I assume you changed the oil and now need the service light reset.
I bought the 1998 S70. it got time to change the oil. Being how I am I changed the oil myself. I had to call dealership about resetting the service light.
they said $29.96.
I said 29.95?!!! how much if YOU would have changed my oil and reset the light?
they said $29.95.
so I learned you need to access the OBDII to reset the light.after service. hope this helps.

"i" light on s40


A lot of new cars have this as a reminder for the owner to change the oil and when this is done the mechanic should reset the light to go out ,look in the owners manuel there should be something in it to tell you about this light other issues that will arise.
