What does it mean when a wrench appears and it says -1


It's most likely you maintenance light, telling you its time for a oil change. If you have recently changed your oil then you just forgot to reset the maintenance light.

I recently changed the oil in my 2010 toyota yaris and the maintenance required light is still on .what do i need to do to put it off.


The "Maintenance Light" comes on after your car has reached the required service miles in the book. When the dealer finishes the oil change or whatever the service is, they should have reset it. If it doesn't bother you you don't really need to turn it off.

If you want to turn it off. On some cars it's a small push button under the dash by the drivers left knee.

Not shur where it is in your car tho.

Hope this helps

I have a 2008 corolla. It has an auto light when the car needs an oil change. I need to know how to reset it.


Look in your owners manual and go to the part that explains the different symbols on your dash. Look for that service reminder and it should tell you what page to go to to learn more about that. Somewhere there should be some wording to the effect that "When you have your car serviced by a certified Toyota dealer they will reset it for you. In the event that someone other does your maintenance then this is the procedure to reset......."

How do you reset change oil light on mitsubishi outlander


Turn the key off.

Press the "Info" button on the left of the dash cluster until your maintenance miles/months screen is displayed.

Press and hold the "info" button until the maintenance screen begins flashing.

Release the "info" button and then push and hold it it for one second.

Your Maintenance intervals should reset to +6 months and +7500 miles since the last interval amount.

Note that if you have not reset it for more than one interval, you may need to do it more than once. If you have not done it for many intervals, you may need to have it reset with the scantool at a dealer, as I have run into a handful of vehicles that the oil change reminder locked up after 3-4 "intervals" were skipped/not reset.

125 miles to service says the computer, what does this indicate? what part will need service? on my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5L V6 Touring?


this is telling you that the vehicle is due for minor service such as oil change and filters if you have already done this recently the service light needs to be reset for the new cycle generally a cycle is anywhere from 3000-5000 miles depending on manufacturer. take to dealer and have them reset it or your owners manual will walk you through resetting

Maintence required on red


Maintenance Required is a light that comes on after a predetermined number of miles. For example, if the maintenance schedule Honda set for the car calls for an oil change at 3000 miles, a new fan belt at 6000 miles, and another oil change at 9000 miles, then the maintenance required light will come on every 3000 miles and stay on until it is reset by the dealer. Some people, especially those that do their own regular maintenance but don't have a way to reset the light themselves, find this an annoyance. But others find it useful and take their cars in to the dealer every time the light comes on, and they rest assured that all of the regular maintenance is always done on time.

What this light does NOT do however is signal that there is anything immanently wrong with your car. It is not a "Check Engine" light (that's the one you should worry about if it ever comes on), but merely a reminder for you to do preventative maintenance. That doesn't mean you should *ignore* it, per se, as you want to make sure you have your car on some kind of maintenance schedule, even if yours is not as strict as Honda's. But there is no need to panic.

How can the maintenance required light be reset following an oil change?


Here's how you reset your oil maintenance light.

To reset the light,
Turn the ignition on
Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
1.Turn the key off
2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
Your'e done.

If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".
