Try this procedure and let me know if this does not work;

Turn the ignition switch to the "On" position but do not start the engine.

1. Press the Trip/Reset button until "Setup Menu Hold Reset" is displayed.

2. Then press and hold down the Trip/Reset button for approximately 2 seconds until "Reset For System Check" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

3. Then immediately press and hold down the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 more seconds until "OIL 100% RESET IF NEW" is displayed then release the Trip/Reset button.

4. Then immediately press the Trip/Reset button once to display "HOLD RESET IF NEW OIL" then release the Trip/Reset button.

5. Then immediately press and hold the Trip/Reset button again for approximately 2 seconds until "OIL LIFE SET TO 100%" is displayed.

Turn off the ignition switch, and then start the engine to verify that the reset procedure did work, and you might have to repeat the procedure if the Trip/Reset button is not pushed fast enough, or it is not held down long enough, or it is held down too long during the reset procedure, and it may take a few attempts to be successful.

How do you reset the computer on a ford windstar


Based on what you're indicating, it sounds like a wiring harness or connection was disturbed during the oil change. This is common where the oil filter is not easily reached and parts need to be removed to access the oil filter.
Normally I'd recommend looking for a loose clip or wire yourself but since you mentioned it was immediately after the oil change, I'd consider going back to where the oil was changed let them know the problem started when you left the service station and must have been due to something they did. Apart from that, I wouldn't recommend trying to "reset" the computer at this time. If you've a loose connection it wouldn't help and losing power to the computer to reset it could leave you with no stereo.

I have 27000 miles on my Nissan Sentra (2006) 1.8S. For the last 3 months the "service engine soon light" has been staying on. I checked the gas cap, which clicked. But the light stays on. ...


Its telling you that you have a recommended service coming up at 30K miles. The dealer will reset the light when you bring the car in. Nissan recommends you to do your maintence's every 7500 miles. A 30K service will consist of an oil change, change air filter, coolant flush, replace PCV valve, in cabin air filter, along with checking many other systems in your vehicle. Hope this helps.

I would recommend changing the oil and filter, using the correct oil. It's possible the wrong oil could cause the noise. Wait and see if the oil change has any effect on the oil pressure reading. If it doesn't, change the oil pressure switch or sending unit.

If it is a cummins engine use Shell Rotella oil 15/40. This is what cummins recommends. Use the same if a mercedes engine. Black oil in a diesel is normal so don't worry.

I would never go to a dealer for anything,you just throw away money

I would go down the street to a local repair shop, and have it checked out, for a possible system failure or the reason you have the maint light on

I also never go more than 24 hours,ever,when I have any check lights on,without starting to diagnose the issues,then continue on until I resolve them. Sometimes that takes weeks to find and solve

The oil change pre set is 5000 miles is this correct


Yes it is. On your newer vehicles the factory has set your oil change light to come on at 5k, due to the technology in semi synthetic oils. Mazda uses a semi senthetic oil from the factory. I still recommend changing your oil every 3k. You may also consult your owners manual for the recommended service interval and adhere to it. As long as you adhere to manufacturer recommendations and keep your oil change reciepts, you should be ok if anything were to happen.

Reset change engine oil light


Information taken from: http://www.idavette.net/tech/oilreset.htm

[quote]
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.

The maintenance required light is on in my 2005 toyota corolla S, what does this mean?


It means you need to get your oil changed, or they didn't reset it after your last oil change.
