If you are refrencing the grey LCD screen that shows teh mileage then it is designed to stay on. There is no backlight to the unit but it stays on to show the mileage at all times and is a minimal battery drain. If you are referencing overall DASH lights for speedometer, etc then you may have a short in the system

Symbol engine light stay on oil and oil filter change only 3000 km work .thank you


Not 100% sure what you're asking. But if you have a modern car with maintenance schedules programmed into the ecm (engine control module), the oil change or maintenance required light will click on when the computer senses the odometer has registered the pre designated amount of miles. Theirs usually a process to clear these lights after the maintenance has been performed. Simply changing the oil and filter does not make the light go away. Typically the process consists of holding in the odometer trip switch (the button on the face of the gauges) while you cycle the key to the on (not the start) position and hold in the button for about ten seconds or so. Your owners manual will include the specific steps you should take.

Why would maintenance require light wont go off after engine service


WHAT DO YOU MEAN, YOU DID A OIL CHANGE AND WANT THE LIGHT TO GO OFF.
PRESS DOWN ON THE ODOMETER KNOB ON THE SPEEDOMETER AND HOLD IT, TURN THE KEY TO POSITION 2 FOR 10 SEC, YOU WELL HEAR A BEEP, SHUT OF THE KEY LET GO THE NUTTON, START THE ENGINE LIGHT WELL STAY OFF.

Speed odometer won't work and transmission won't change gears


You probably have a check engine light staying on too. My first guess would be the speed sensor on the transmission but I would check for trouble codes first.

2000 tundra odometer stopped working


The check engine light should come back on at some point.
Chances are the problem is the speed sensor in the transmission.

2005 lexu 330, turn off maintenance light


1. With your car OFF, place your key in the ignition and turn to "On". Do not start the car.
2. Find the odometer button and press until it reads the total odometer setting, (not the Trip A or Trip B setting).
3. Turn the key to OFF.
4. Place your finger back on the odometer button, press and hold. At the same time, turn the key back to "On".
5. Hold the odometer button in until the MAINT REQD light goes out...should take about 8-10 seconds.

page 77 of the 2004 Lexus rx330 handbook...
(you will find the answer you are looking for in resetting your maintenance light.)
with the odometer reading visible, (not trip A or trip B..) turn off engine.

While keeping Odo/trip button depressed, turn ignition back on (not starting the engine) You will see dashes (instead of numbers) on your odometer disappearing one at a time. it will be replaced by 0's (zeros).. Release the Odo/trip button and your original mileage will come up....
And your done..... until the next oil change.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

My expedition 2001 has the check ingine..we changed so many parto to truck already and the mile lights go of,dont know why...help


Are you referring to to odometer? if so, you will need to remove the gauge cluster and unplug the odometer harness and re-insert to make a better contact. Ford such as the expedition and f-150's are bad about the mileage or odometer going out and then sometime it will come back on. I just removed mine and had t do the same thing. Have you had the check engine code pulled to see what the problem area may be. You can usually get the code pulled at a local Auto Zone. The check engine light don't always mean that you have a serious problem. As long as the light stays on you are usually good , but if it starts blinking, then it's a more serious problem. Are you experiencing any problems from the truck that you can tell?

Dash lights on and clock resets. 2003 Jetta


To fix the clock and the odometer I just had to make sure there was a fuse in both places 11 and 15. I have a standard trans and one place I thought was for auto trans instrument panel lights. But both must be there. The engine check light also went off but the airbag light is still on. I was wanting to avoid going to the dealer, but I might have to so they can reset that.

Abs,STC, Brake ,and check engine lights all on.


Sounds like your Electronic Throttle System Software needs replacing. Contact an authorized Volvo dealer shop.
There's a recall so it will be no charge.
