Question about 2008 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

How can I reset the check engine dashboard light that came on when the mileage hit 30,000. The car has been impeccably maintained and I'm sure the dealer just wants you to bring it in for unneccessary "30,000 mile maintenance". The car is a 2008 Hyundai Accent GLS.

    These people are a great resource. They can save you tons of money by giving you answers that otherwise would have to be referred to the dealer for big bucks.

Disconnect the negative ground from the battery for at least 30 seconds & then reconnect it. This will allow the computor to reset itself. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Chek apears on dashboard


You would need to know which warning light you are dealing with.
CHECK could be a check engine light, or check gauges light.
A check engine light means the computer sees a problem with the performance of the engine that can affect fuel mileage or emissions.

Engine service soon displayed on dashboard allways. vehicle chevy van g20 starcraft 1993.


Why not just have the codes read and reset at a place like Autozone, that does it for free?
It could just be odometer based, telling you a maintenance is due based on miles.

What is recommended for a 75000 mile checkup on a 2002 Chevy Tahoe, 5.3 2wd.


You don't need a service of any kind at this mileage, u do need to have this diagnosed for worn front end parts and a full electronic engine control diagnostic, but i will say this the fuel and air filter needs to be changed every 30,000 miles, it this hasn't been done do so, also the transmission needs a fluid and filter change every 60,000 miles, check tire pressure once a month, all these maintainence items affect performance.

How do I remove the "needs Maintainance " code. Is the interlink sunvisor a plug and play accessorie? Is the compas mirror also a plug & play accesorie? Are there any reputable salvage lots that...


The maintenance light goes away like this:
1. Turn the ignition key in 'I'-position
2.Press the trip odometer reset button (make sure that it is showing T1. Make note on the mileage).
3. While keeping the reset pressed down, turn the ignition key to 'II'-position.
4. Wait until the service light (or the yellow triangel) has blinked three times or the trip mileage has returned to show the previous mileage (not reset to 0.0)
5. Release the trip reset button.
5. Release

Gas mileage


Use the recommended weight of oil, and by far the most important maintain proper tire inflation.
Change air filter at 30,000
fuel filter at 60,000
tune up at 100,000

Is there a reset button where I can turn off the Check engine light on a 98 Corolla? There has to be somewhere. After certain miles it will come on and I know from another car I had that it won't cut off until it reaches a certain amout of mile but someone told me where the reset buton was and I didn't have to deal with that annoying light anymore.
