SOURCE: Maintenance Required Light

The instruction is in your owners manual. I also perform my own maintenance. Well, here's the steps if you still haven't done it. Good Luck

Put the key into the ignition and press the odometer button. While holding down the odometer button, turn the key to the on position. You will see "-----"on the odometer display. It will count down "-----" "----" "---" "- -" "-". Then you will see zeros on the odometer display "000000". You can now release the odometer button. This will reset the maintenance light on your dash.

SOURCE: "maintenance required" light is stuck on in 1991 Jeep Wrangler

On the dim dashlights, there is usually a rotory switch that you can turn to increase the power to the dash lights. In earlier vehicles it was part of the headlight switch and you just turned it one way or the other to adjust the brightness. In newer vehicles it is a switch like a knob sticking out of the dash on its side that you push up or down to change the brightness of the lamps.

The Maintenance Required light is probable on because the vehicle has hit the 50,000 mile mark and it comes on automatically so that you take the vehicle in for maint. of the emission system. If this is the case there is usually a way to reset it untill another 50,000 miles go by. I would read the owners manual, or better yet pickup a Chilton manual for the vehicle and see if it says how to reset the light. You also may want to have the vehicle checked to see if any trouble codes have been signaled. Good Luck, RAC

this is just your maintence minder. the reset procedure should be in your owners manual. the vehicle calculates when its due for an oil change and turns the light on but it should be reset every oil change if its on or not. you can can your local acura/honda dealer and they can explain how to reset

SOURCE: what the srs light means

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

The maintenance required light just means that some sort of scheduled maintenance needs to be done. Most of the time it just means you need an oil/filter change. Your owner's manual will list what maintenance is required based on your milage. This light is not the same as the Check Engine light which means that something is wrong with the emissions system.

The computer on the truck says to have maintenance performed. Checking the owners manual, it says the EGR valve needs to be replaced. Where is the EGR valve, what does it do and where do I get the part?...


Are you sure that the Owners Manual is telling you to replace your EGR Valve or is it simply telling you to check it? Does the light on the dash say "Maintenance Required"? or is your Check Engine light on? If your vehicle is equipped with "Maintenance Required" light, the vehicle usually does not need anything. You simply check the systems that are listed by the manufacturer to check, make repairs only as necessary, and reset the light. Chrysler did some goofy stuff with Maintenance Required lights back in the 80's where they recommended replacemet of a whole bunch of parts that the vehicle didn't need to have replaced. We used to just reset the light and send the vehicle back to the customer. I haven't seen one of those for a while. If your 2007 has one of these, it means Chrysler is up to some old stuff for 2007.
On the other hand, if it is the "Check Engine" light that is on, the computer needs to be scanned for fault codes and diagnosed and repaired accordingly. Also EGR valve failures are pretty rare. When the Engine Computer sets a fault code for the EGR system it usually is not caused by the EGR Valve itself. Your 2007 is OBDII compatible, which means if you are having a problem with your EGR System the Check Engine light will be on and fault codes will be stored in the Engine Computer.

1994 honda accord maintenance required light is on. have not seen it on before.


maintenance required lights in hondas come on at set intervals set by the factory. usually it just mean an oil change, but no one usually goes by the light. under the dash behind the plastic where your legs are there should be a little button. feel around for it, hold the button in and turn your key on until the light goes off. Or any honda dealer will do it for you and show you how to do it the first time. No worries

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.

What does the "maintenance required" light mean and how do you reset it on a 2004 toyota solara?


Maintenance light is turned on when your vehicle is due for service. It is set to turn on at a certain mileage. At minimum, you need an oil change service and what ever is required at your mileage interval. Resetting the light is as simple as, Ignition Key in the off position, press and hold the odometer button, Turn the ignition key on and continue to hold the odometer button for at least ten seconds. If properly done, you will see dashes across your odometer as you hold the button, until the odometer reading reappears. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback.
