Will the check engine light come on when it is time for an oil change?


It may, but you should not rely on that. Change your oil every 6 months, or 7,500 miles.

Here is you maintenance schedule and guide

Service lights


Well, let me just say that if you have gone 10,000 miles without servicing your brand-new Lexus, you are a LOT braver than I would ever be. I certainly do not have the gold available to pay for the possible consequeces of pulling that one off. When was the last time you even checked your engine oil level? I have seen MANY vehicles run completely out of oil between 3000 mile services and completely DESTROY the engines! 10,000 miles is REALLY taking HUGE chances!

You may have 2 separate problems...One for the oil needing service and one for a problem with your AWD system. However, Toyota and Lexus are known for disabling things like AWD, ABS, Traction Control, etc. when the engine computer detects things like low oil pressure or low oil levels. This can cause several warning lamps to all come on at the same time.

GET YOUR VEHICLE SERVICED!!! Hopefully, you will be one of the lucky ones and have not done any serious damage by not getting it serviced when you should have.

Your oil should be changed every 3000 miles (Or every 5000 miles if you are using full-synthetic oil). You should also check the oil level between services AT LEAST every 1000 miles (or more often, if you are having to add oil at 1000 miles). For a properly maintained vehicle, checking the oil level between oil changes SHOULD seem a total waste of time. However, it is the single, MOST IMPORTANT thing you can spend your time on when it comes to getting a lot of miles from your investment. If your engine starts using (burning) oil or if it starts leaking oil, you will not know about it in time to save your engine if you are not in the habit of checking it on a regular basis.

What does the spanner sign light mean on a Mitsibishi Outlander?


this usually is a maintenance reminder light the factory installs to have the driver get the car in for usually a emission component check(components that affect emissions) to make sure they are working.then they turn the light off.if maintenance has been done regularly and the check engine light(service engine soon light)hasn`t come on then you could take it to a shop that has the capability to turn off the light and have them turn the light off.some of these will come on after so many miles(kilometers) of driving just to get the car in for a service.

Maintenance light


most cars have maintenance lights,. it is a great way that the factory gets you back to the dealer at regular intervals of 30,60,90, 120k miles - check your odometer,. sometimes just driving a few miles will shut off automatically, otherwise an obd2 reader could reset the codes..
if this a check engine light? then get the codes read to determine the real problem...
remember, more details you put in here are better..

The maintenance check engine light change to yellow from green first.. Now turning into red


The maintenance light by the odometer is just a 10,000 mile indicator. You can reset it by pushing the tip of your key on the reset slot in the speedometer, which is exactly what a mechanic will do after performing the appropriate maintenance for the age of the car.

How many miles are on the car? Your owners manual will have a table in the back that lists what work should be done and when. If you do all your own work, then just reset your maintenance indicator and go on your merry way.

If not, then you should take it to a mechanic for the service checks, and have them reset the indicator.

If your Check Engine light is also lighting up, then you should take it to a mechanic or an Auto Parts store (checker/autozone/pep-boys,etc) and they can read the trouble code for free. On a 1996 Accord, the connector is behind the ashtray in the center console.

The check Maintenance Required light came on my 2006 Corolla about a year and a half ago. I checked the manual; it indicated that the oil should be changed. Even though I was nowhere close to a scheduled...


The oil light is reset by the tech on each service. It will not go off by itself. As far as the check engine light goes you now have a code stored and you will need to get it before we can begin to diagnose. Only thing you can do is make sure the gas cap is on and the seal is no cracked or distorted. This could set a code

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.
