2005 LeSabre: Is it a wild coincidence the speedometer started acting up immediately after I left the Valvoline shop, or could this have anything to do with the worker resetting the dash buttons?


Go to the Buick dealer, talk to the service manager, tell them your kid did it..(because they will not help you if they know you went somewhere else to get work they do).. and ask them how to fix it.....then go back to the Valvoline place with your new found info...

The check engine light is on everything is ok on


In most later vehicles, that light may stay on for a fixed number (it can be 5-50, we have both) of startups of the engine or many have to be manually reset. The engine can't tell the computer that it has fresh oil but will turn the light on after some finite mileage since the last reset for periodic maintenance items such as your oil change, but some items can't reasonably reset the computer; it has to be told that the oil was changed.
Check your manual to find how to reset that warning light and if you no longer have the manual for your vehicle, you can download a copy of it from the Ford website.

The maintenance required light is on in my 2005 toyota corolla S, what does this mean?


It means you need to get your oil changed, or they didn't reset it after your last oil change.

There is an info button. Press that button repeatedly until you get to maintenence. Once there, use the directional knob and toggle down to oil and press ok, from there it should either give you a reset tab to highlight and press ok, or highlight the mileage bar and toggle left until it is back at 0. If you have any trouble let me know and I will walk you through it.

Change mileage and temperature from english to metric


Look to see if you have an Info Centre on your dash. If you do push the Info button until mileage comes up and click Reset it should change from english to metric. Changing the temp is done the same way. If you have an owners manual it will tell you how to do it as well. Hope this helps

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.
