First thing first check your oil level--it can be couple of things When you stop all the oil travels to the front of the pan away from the low oil sensor. This triggers the light. Check your oil may need a half a quart to a quart of oil.add more oil.

The check engine light (spanner) came on and I saw a message saying that oil life is less that 15%. I quickly went and serviced the car but the spanner sign did no go. Please advise me on what to do.


Place the key into the #2 position (do not start engine). With the oil remaining light showing on the odometer, press and hold reset post for 10 seconds until it starts blinking, then let go. Press it again for 5 seconds and it should reset back to 100%.

Recently the Maintenance Required light comes on and blinks for a couple of minutes, then goes off. We put new brakes on the front and we changed the oil and I thought the light would stop, but it's still...


the car is telling you that the oil needs to be changed/ the milage has reached the limit for needing to be changed. even if you have changed the oil it will still warn you after 7500 miles to change the oil. To make the light go off, press and hold the knob the resets your milage for 15 secs then turn the key to the on position(dont start the car) then continue to hold the knob in for about 30 secs, release, turn the car off, wait 5 secs, turn car to on position, then back off the start the car it should clear the maintence light.

Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2004 1.9 tdi, automatic gear: Problem1: board alarm, Glow plug system remains on at starting and contiune to flush in running. Engine starts hardly second or third time. Problem2:...


problem one is the timer control for the heaters ,also check the heaters that they are working ,oil problem ? look under the rubber boot that goes over the oil switch ,pull it back and if oil under the cover renew the oil switch,these motors do suffer from heater light flashing on and i know people have spent megabucks trying to cure it ,its a fault with dash and printed circuits ,but the heaters are not coming on i know because i have driven one with the heater circuit light coming on and i had a extended light on a long wire and the heaters are not coming on ,ignore it just renew the faulty glow plugs,as for EGR valve just pull teh vacumn pipe off the ERG valve and leave disconnect ,more hassle than its worth changing it ,you could end up with a ECU computer .Still a nice reliable motor though and economical

Reset change engine oil light

The "Change Oil" indicator is reset by using a sequence of Driver Information Center (DIC) key presses as follows:

1. Turn ignition "ON", but do not start engine. (ALDL pin "G" should NOT be grounded.)
2. Press the "ENG/MET" button and release, then, within 5 seconds, press it again.
3. Within 5 seconds of Step 2, press and hold the "GAUGES" button. While the button is held, the "Change Oil" indicator will flash.
4. Continue holding the "GAUGES" button until the "Change Oil" indicator stops flashing and goes out, indicating successful completion of the reset cycle. This should take about 10 seconds.
If it does not successfully reset, turn ignition "OFF" and repeat the procedure from Step 1.

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
