Turn off or rest check engine light to pass smog


It takes at least one "Good trip" stored in the computer before it will pass a smog check. Simply resetting the light did not fix the problem that caused the light to come on to begin with, and attempting to smog it will only result in a failed test.
You must address the fault first, then reset the system and drive upwards of 150 miles before a "Good trip" has been stored in the computer.

What causes the engine service required message to come on in an s60


This is an interval message. Basically, it comes on after so many miles to remind you to do an oil change (and related service based on your miles - air filter, cabin air filter, etc.).

The Check Engine Light is when something more serious is going on.

Your light shouldn't come on when you accelerate hard, it should come on and stay on for 2 minutes.
To reset it there is a procedure to keep the odometer on TRIP 1, then turn off the ignition. Then hold it and turn on the ignition to IGN II and keep holding the button until the trip 1 resets to 0 and then let go.
That's from memory so google the process to make sure you get it right, but it was something like that on my car (2006 Volvo). I think the earlier ones had a process with the READ button on the stalk, but I'm not sure.

I own a 2002 Chevy Cavalier with 131,800 miles on it. I had the fuel pump replaced 2 weeks ago and ever since then, I have noticed that the car seems to be burning almost twice as much fuel. I refilled the...


There most likely isn't a problem. The fuel gauge works off of a reisistor board that's mounted on the fuel pump assembly. There is a arm with a float attached to one end. On the other end there are needles that touch the resistor board. The float level changes where the needles touch the risistor board and that changes your fuel gauge. Not all resistor boards read exactly the same, especially if an AC Delco pump wasn't used. The gauge is just reading off a little bit compared to your original one. Try filling up, resetting your trip meter and then driving a good bit. When you fill up the next time figure your gas mileage by dividing the miles you went by how many gallons you used. I bet your still getting around the same gas mileage.

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??



  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.


  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

My maintenance required light came on and stays on. since maintenance required is such a broad subject, i was wondering how i can determine what may be causing this problem is it possible that it's the...


normally if its going to be an O2 sensor,, the check engine light would come on, not the maintenance light, I don't know if your car has 2 different ones, My 2000 civic does though,, normally a maint light comes on if its time for an oil change , etc... rest the light,, heres how you do that you use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.

with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on.

continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go out

when the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.

your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next service

I just had a new battery installed yesterday and this morning there is a message appearing on my dash board >>> TRIP B 199999????????


There should be a peg or reset button next to the odometer. Pessimism and hold for 5 second or so. It should re.set to zero. Your car has two resettable odometers Trip A and Trip B. They can be used to measure the distance of a trip. I normally reset A each time I fill the gas tank and B each time I get an oil change. Nothing to worry about. You can cycle through the three odometers by pressing the reset peg for 1 second or less. The third odometer view is the total miles on the car and cannot be reset.

2008 Toyota 4Runner maintenance light is on eventhough I did changed the oil. How do I reset it?? I tried one of the suggestions which included turning the key to on and resetting the trip miles but...


You were close with re-setting the trip miles. Here are the steps:

(1) Turn key on, but do not start car. Keep pushing the trip miles button until you get to the odometer miles (the total mileage of the car), not the trip miles.

(2) Trun key off.

(3) Push and HOLD the reset button with one hand, then turn the key on (do not start the car) with the other.

(4) While you continue to HOLD in the reset button, you will notice the various warning lights blink and turn off. After about 10 seconds, release the reset button.

(5) Turn key off, then turn key back on and start car. The maintenance light will be off.

How do I reset computer on 2007 Mini Cooper S


Resetting the MINI Oil Indicator
If you do your own oil changes, this is a helpful tip to keep in mind. Typically, it is best to wait until your dealer maintenance service warranty expires, as an ‘owner’ reset could result in a missed oil change, particularly if the dealer checks the indicator it does not believe an oil change is due.

1. Locate the trip odometer button and depress and hold.
2. Insert the key into the ignition and partially turn into the first position.
3. Pay attention to the trip odometer to display the word ‘RESET’.
4. Release the trip odometer button, then press & hold it again.
5. The ‘RESET’ message will flash.
6. Release the button, and then press & release again (once only)
7. The service interval is now reset to 10,000 miles

Maintenance Required light came on & stayed on after oil change


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON

Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.
If you do NOT see the dashes, followed by the 5 zeros, start the entire procedure again, but start with the odometer set to TRIP "A". Some vehicles use Trip A instead of the ODO.

You do NOT START the vehicle at any time during the reset procedure.
If the engine starts, the procedure will not reset.
