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.

HI I HAVE A 2002 SATURN L300 AND I HAD AN OIL CHANGE TO STOP THE WRENCH LIGHT FROM COMING ON AND ITS STILL ON WHY IS THAT? I THOUGHT THE WRENCH LIGHT WAS ONLY FOR MAINTENCE. THANK YOU


If you reset the monitor when you had the oil changed, and that light is for oil change due, the light should have stayed off.
Usually the wrench warning light is a service vehicle warning, not for oil change is due.
Your owners manual should explain each warning light.
You may have to get the body computer checked out by a shop or the dealer.

How do i reset the oil change light? 99 grand am se 6cyl


That light should reset itself after you changed the oil .If you have changed the oil and it doesn't reset ,try disconnecting the batter for about 5 mins. check your milage, see how many miles you normally drive before that light normally comes on. That is so, if that light dosen't come on ,you will know its time to change the oil. If that light doesn't come on at the right amount of miles,have your oil changed at the dealer and ask them to check the oil change warning light .If they find nothing wrong ,no charge . This warning light is fairly new ,in the old days people just guessed ,its about time to change the oil !

2007 ford 500 oil warning light comes on and just had the oil and filter changed 700 miles ago,62000 mile on car .light comes on when started ,push reset and it goes off and stays off until the next start...


When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.

when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

Oil warning light is still on after having the oil change, how do i reset the oil warning light ? /


The oil warning light indicates no oil pressure, changing the oil would not affect the light. You should not drive the car if this light is on, because if it is operating correctly, you will ruin your engine. The car should be checked immediately, and not driven until the cause of the light being on is determined.
good luck, and let me know the outcome. countrycurt0
