Question about 2004 Mazda RX-8
Mazdas are bothersome to say the least when it comes to resetting service lights. It took me a lot of digging to find out how to clear my Mazda6 service light and I believe I saw something for an RX8 on my travels that went along the lines of turn off ignition but don't remove the key, hold down the trip reset button and turn the ignition back on for at least 10 seconds or so and the maint rqd light should go off. I think to force the car to recheck other issues which have been repaired, turn off ignition, remove key, locate and remove the ECU fuse in the fuse box, turn on the ignition to the point prior to turning the engine over and leave it for 10 minutes. Turn off ignition and reinsert the fuse and turn the ignition back to II or the point prior to starting. It forces the ECU to check stuff again and I believe this would clear errors and not service indicators.

To reset the oil change warning light:
1. Turn on the ignition (not the engine).
2. Hold down the brake and accelerator for twenty seconds until the warning light goes off.
