Why does 'maintenance required' light flash 8 times then out?


That light simply means that it is nearing the point for maintenance which is based on the odometer. The mechanic was supposed to reset that after the oil change.

maintenance lights often mean nothing except that a certain period of time or mileage has passed. Whoever changed the oil probably didnt reset the maintenance counter.

It's most likely you maintenance light, telling you its time for a oil change. If you have recently changed your oil then you just forgot to reset the maintenance light.

My maintenance light has come on slightly over 98000 miles. About 98600 or so. I have already gotten an oil change and the timing belt was replaced last year. Is it typical that the light comes on...


The light will come on based on your mileage. I would suspect it is on telling you to replace the cam belt. Your owners manual will tell you exactly what maintenance is due at 98,000 miles.

How to do I reset the maintenance service light on my 2007 Chevy Trail Blazer


there is no light for emissions testing on this vehicle. there is a ses light that can come on, indicationg a problem with the engine or transmission electronic system. this will require a scan tool to pull trouble codes. there is another light called oil life monitoring that needs to be reset after oil changes, which I suspect is what you are seeing. here is a picture of the light and the instructions for resetting.,

The Engine Oil Life System calculates when to change your engine oil and filter based on vehicle use. Anytime your oil is changed, reset the system so it can calculate when the next oil change is required. If a situation occurs where you change your oil prior to a CHANGE OIL SOON message being turned on, reset the system.
After changing the engine oil, the system must be reset as follows:
  1. Turn the ignition to RUN, with the engine OFF.
  2. Press the information and reset buttons on the Driver Information Center (DIC) at the same time to enter the personalization menu.
  3. Press the information button to scroll through the available personalization menu modes until the DIC display shows OIL LIFE RESET.
  4. Press and hold the reset button until the DIC display shows ACKNOWLEDGED. This will tell you the system has been reset.
  5. Turn the key to LOCK.
If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes back on when you start the vehicle, the Engine Oil Life System has not reset. Repeat the reset procedure.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

Why does my maintenance required light flashes 6 times after starting my 2005 toyota corolla?


its to let you know that its almost time to change your oil. it will stay on when the car has reached 5000 miles since your last oil change or since the light was last reset.
