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.

Maintenance required light is on


If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.

  1. put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
  2. press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
  3. while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
  4. As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
  5. Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
That should do it. Hope this helps

I recently changed the oil in my 2010 toyota yaris and the maintenance required light is still on .what do i need to do to put it off.


The "Maintenance Light" comes on after your car has reached the required service miles in the book. When the dealer finishes the oil change or whatever the service is, they should have reset it. If it doesn't bother you you don't really need to turn it off.

If you want to turn it off. On some cars it's a small push button under the dash by the drivers left knee.

Not shur where it is in your car tho.

Hope this helps

The 'Maintenance Required' light flashes on my


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

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.

Please note:

Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/om/AC0606/AC0606O00192A.pdf

Owner's Manual page 193-197.

Resetting the Engine Oil Life
Indicator

Your dealer will reset the display
after completing the required
maintenance service. You will see
‘‘OIL LIFE 100 %’’ on the odometer/
trip meter display the next time you
turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

If maintenance service is done by
someone other than your dealer,
reset the maintenance minder as
follows:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
the engine oil life indicator is
displayed.

3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 10 seconds. The engine
oil life indicator and the
maintenance item code(s) will
blink.

4. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 5 seconds. The
maintenance items code(s) will
disappear, and the engine oil life
will reset to ‘‘100.’’

Important Maintenance
Precautions

If you have the required service
done but do not reset the display, or
reset the display without doing the
service, the system will not show the
proper maintenance intervals. This
can lead to seriousmechanical
problems because you will no longer
have an accurate record of when
maintenance is needed.
Your authorized Honda dealer
knows your vehicle best and can
provide competent, efficient service.
However, service at a dealer is not
mandatory to keep your warranties
in effect. Maintenance may be done
by any qualified service facility or
person who is skilled in this type of
automotive service. Make sure to
have the service facility or person
reset the display as previously
described. Keep all receipts as proof
of completion, and have the person
who does the work fill out the
maintenance record. Check your
warranty booklet for more
information.

''maintenance required'' light on dash


  1. With the car started (just ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B).
  2. Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
  3. Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
  4. Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
  5. Release the odometer button/knob.
  6. Turn key to OFF position.
  7. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so.

2003 GMC sierra 1500 ( dealer rip off )


if you went to a dealer then that sounds about right. they tend to be expensive. you got to remember though that most the time 90k mile maintenence includes radiator flush, oil change, tranny oil change, emissions checks, possibly water pump check. cooling system pressure check. abs checks, brake checks, steering and suspension checks. there is alot of maintenance that can be done. you need a list of the stuff they are trying to charge you. honestly if they do all the work required then 3300 my not be to bad

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
