SOURCE: How do i reset to off the maintenance required light

Hello
Welcome to FixYa.
The van requires a scan of the computer for the reset. Most shops do charge a fee to do this.

SOURCE: 1992 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L engine maintenance light needs resetting

It's a module under dash programmed to turn on Maintenance light. You can pay $80 to replace module or pull wire going to module and save $80. BTW, it's there to tell you to replace your Oxygen sensor.

SOURCE: 92 dakota have maintenance required lights on

First answer made by an idiot, don't answer unless you know something!. The answer is not in your owners manual. A Chrysler diagnosis machine is required to reset the light in a 1989 or later Dakota. Prior to that there is a little blue control box mounted above the e-brake that you take loose after removing the dash cover. Poke a pencil into the small reset hole on the side while the truck is running and your light will go out. Your dealer will do it for about $140!

Engine maint. light reset


OBD1 System

That is just a reminder & has no effect on
any vehicle system (just a gadget)

You need OBD1 professional scan tool software
I had the same vehicle & the same thing happen

I'm looking at my 1992 factory service manual
It is called an EMR--Emission Maintenance Reminder light
It stores every 8 miles
Checks at 60,000,82,500,120,000 miles & then sets the light

It is for replacement of : EGR Valve,O2 Sensor,PVC Valve,etc

Mine only came on at 80,000 & I had & still have the scan tool

I never tried any other means to clear it,haven't worked on OBD1
in over 10 years,just use the scope on the old scan tool for O2 Sensor switching times

How would u reset the maintaince required light after you changed the fluids?


Hi there biggryder 12!

The best way to reset the maintenence light after you have resolved the problem is to disconnect the battery.
  1. First disconnect the battery (negative terminal)
  2. Let the disconnected battery sit for at least 15 minutes
  3. After 15 minutes reconnect the negative cable
The reason to leave it disconnected for 15 minutes is to give the capasitors time to fully discharge their charge. If after doing this procedure and your light comes back on you need to check if there is any maintenence procedure that may have been missed or have the codes read.

I hope this was of assistance to you.

DODGE DAKOTA HAD 3 DIFFERENT ENGINES BACK IN 92. ENGINES ARE 2.5 - 3.9 - 5.2 YOU COULD HAVE THE WRONG FUEL PUMP INSTALL.WHICH WILL MAKE ELECTRICAL HOOK UP DIFFERENT.THAT WILL CAUSE FUEL GAUGE NOT TO WORK.

I have a maintenance required light lit on the dash. What would cause this?


Your dodge is an OBD1 compliant vehicle. All you need to do to retrieve the code for what caused the light to illuminate is cycle your ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON within a 5 second period. The light will illuminate "x" amount of times, pause, and then illuminate "x" amount of times. For example, if it illuminates 2 times then pauses then illuminates 4 times, it is a code 24. There are many different reasons the light will come on, so after you find the code ask another question regarding the code number and what it means.

Serpentine belt on 1992 dakota


You don't mention which engine you have in your '92 Dakota, but it's likely the 3.3L and if so, here's the diagram. Even if your engine is not the 3.3L the principals for replacing the belt are the same.

Get a serpentine belt tension release tool (local parts store) and use it to take the tension wheel away from the belt, which will make it loose enough to remove by simply pulling it off one of the pulleys (the alternator will be easiest) and then wiggle it out of the engine bay. The tool should come with a selection of heads for the different variations of tensioner arms/bolts. Once the belt is removed, replacing it is the reverse process.

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.
