It is a predetermined mileage interval that is reset after an oil change. Withe the key off press and hold the trip reset button while turning the key to the run position (do not start the car). Continue to hold the reset button until the light goes out, about 10 to 15 seconds.

Many issues can cause this alert from a loose gas cap to poor air intake due to dirty filter , poor running conditions. It needs to be hooked up to computer to determine problem.
Sometime by removing the red battery terminal and replacing it after a couple minutes you are resetting the computer and you can get another alert that tells you exactly what the problem was prior to the required alert coming on which over rides all others.

SOURCE: My maintance required light is

Hello pettiford.

This light is telling you that it time for scheduled maintainence.
Usually this will consist of an oil change and whatever else is listed for the mileage on the vehicle at that time.
In your owners manual there is a list of items that are recommended at a specific mileage or time.
Many owners dedicated to their vehicles try to follow this to keep their vehicles in top condition.
After the service has been completed this light is supposed to be reset.
This reset button is on your instrument panel.
This is how it is reset.

  • With the ignition switch OFF, press and hold the select/reset button(s).
  • Turn the ignition switch ON (II), and hold the button(s) more than 10 seconds.

It hasnt been a month since the oil was changed in my 2011 Toyota Camry and the maintance required was reset. Now the maintaince required has now came back on. What would the the problem since I know


Take it back to the oil change place. Or check the oil. If a seal is leaking or oil filter was not tightened or put on correctly oil may have leaked out and you will blow your engine!

Is is there any oil leaking in garage or driveway or where you park?

Service light


What exactly does the light look like? If it is a picture of the engine (check engine light) you may have a problem with the car. If it is a light that specificaly says "Service Engine Soon" or "Maintance Required", you may not need to do anything. Some cars, not many, have a service reminder light that comes on when ever a service is due like an oil change. When a mechanic does an oil change, they may reset this counter and after 3000 miles or so, the light comes on despite what ever conditions the oil is in, whether it needs to be changed or not, the light will come on and stay on. Now i dont want to tell you to ignore your light and later find out it was trying to tell you something was wrong. Look in your owners manual and find the description of the light. If you cannot find the description or do not have your owners manual, let us know and we will try and help you again. Hope this helps

Hey i bought my car in march 2006, i have a 99 honda accord lx v4 i am having trouble with the maintenance check light. when i start the car and the light flashes about ten times before it turns off....


Look at the owners manual it will tell you how to turn it off. But before you do that check your milage with the maintance interval list located in the owners manual. The maintance light goes on when a certain milage is obtained which will describe the type of maintence is required.

How reset maintance required light


I get many calls a week for this procedure...
This is really easy! Follow these directions:

Turn the key ON

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "ODO" and the total mileage traveled. If it is on "Trip A" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "ODO", and the total miles traveled.

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it in.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.
Observe the Odometer display. The total mileage traveled will disappear, and you will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, the total mileage traveled will redisplay.

Release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.
