I looked this problem up, so now I know ha ha . Turn your key to the on position, don't start. Slowly push your gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 10 seconds. lights should go on in the dash. Turn key off then start. Sounds strange, but that is what they say. Let me know how this works for you please thanks

SOURCE: Oli indicator mileage reset

This is showing that your overdue for a sevice by 8,769. Depending on which service it will either say oil or inspection. With bmw's the order is of service is oil service .. inspection 1 ... oil service .... inspection 2. etc etc.

To reset the light the only tool you need is your finger. On some e46's there are 2 instrument cluster buttons (little rubber poles sticking out). If you press the left one with the ignition off you'll notice your mileage come up on the dash. This is the button you need to reset the service indicator.

With everything off,press and hold the same button and at the same time turn on the ignition to position 2 and wait a few seconds. It will then show the service and overdue mileage.Let go of the button and press and hold again until the 'reset' light flashes. Let go again and then hit the button once. Viola! The same can be done for resetting brake fluid light (clock symbol next to mileage) Instead of pressing and holding for the second time just press the button once to follow into a different menu for and the clock symbol will appear to be reset.

End of essay!

Engine ticking in 1998 dodge grand caravan


if its a ticking noise then its probably a lifter noise from age and mileage or none scheduled maintenance. on your next oil change you can try running an oil system cleaner through your engine but this is not something to be overly concerned about.

I want to know what the basic maintance on a 2000 dodge caravan


It depends on the mileage. You should change hoses, belt(s) and coolant at least every 3 years. Change trans fluid and clean filter every 30,000 miles. Change oil every 3,000 miles. Check the air filter regularly. EGR valve is a 60,000 mile replacement I believe.

If you don't have an owner's manual and like to DIY, get a Chilton or Haynes repair guide. Check the brakes at every rotation - I use 5,000 miles as my guide.

Dodge caravan 1998 regarding difference between gear D and 3


Two spaces i believe. on the new cars d often includes overdrive which kicks in to allow the motor to work less to keep the car at the speed you are at. hence better gas mileage.
if you leave it in 3rd i believe that will provent overdrive from kicking in.
