    I thank you very much for your help and want you to know that prior to your solution, I had contacted two dealerships, spoken to a man who works at Canadian Tire in my hometown and no one had any idea what this represented.



    I followed your instructions, added brake fluid and did what you suggested and low and behold, I drove all day today and not once did that gauge light come on. I am a retired Customs Officer and did not want to take my car to just anyone because I have had experiences where being a woman I was taken advantage of when repairing my car.



    I thank you so much. Your suggestion worked and I am grateful.

That is the brake light, check your brake fluid level, the light cam on in mine, I filled the brake fluid container and pumped the brake pedal and set/released the emergency brake a few times, the light went off.

Maint reqd light stays on


From what I remember with my Mighty Max '90, if you remove the dash panel , the one with the cluster gauges, you will find a push button that resets the engine maintenance light. It's a thing that wont reset by itself and lights up at specified mileage that is reached by the odometer. Usually the mechanic that does the work indicated by the light will reset it when the work is done. The red light might indicate a serious problem, so before you ignore the possible problems it might indicate, eliminate the the serious ones before you reset. The trick is to get the dash panel off.
