Sounds like that light is just as a reminder for oil change. If you look in your manual it should state how to reset it.

Light on screen says REQ. MAINT.


Could be as easy as your car is due for an oil change (if that hasn't been done within the required interval (check your owners manual). If that is not the problem, I suggest taking it to a mechanic that you trust, that has a computer that he can hook to your car to find out exactly what the problem is........ As it could be quite a few different things

1. To reset MAINT reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to OFF position with odometer reading showing. Turn ignition switch to ON position while holding down trip meter RESET button.
2. Hold trip meter RESET button down for at least 5 seconds. Odometer should indicate "000000" and MAINT reminder light goes out.

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.

''maintenance required'' light on dash


  1. With the car started (just ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so.

Dashboard shows a yellow light i asked about it from a mechanic he said u hav to change brake leathers


Can you explain the light? Does it say chack engine? Maint? If it says MAINT you need to get your oil changed. If you dont go to the dealership to change your oil, they dont reset the timer for the MAINTenance light and it comes on anyway. Get a better mechanic, and get your light reset. Or I can teach you how to reset it, just let me know.
