Try this:
1. Turn the ignition switch to the "on" position. Do not start the engine.
2. Depress the accelerator pedal fully, three times within 10 seconds.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the "off" position.
4. Start the engine. If the oil change light illuminates and stays lit, repeat the previous steps.

Hope helps.

Hi there biggryder 12!

The best way to reset the maintenence light after you have resolved the problem is to disconnect the battery.

  1. First disconnect the battery (negative terminal)
  2. Let the disconnected battery sit for at least 15 minutes
  3. After 15 minutes reconnect the negative cable
The reason to leave it disconnected for 15 minutes is to give the capasitors time to fully discharge their charge. If after doing this procedure and your light comes back on you need to check if there is any maintenence procedure that may have been missed or have the codes read.

I hope this was of assistance to you.

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?

My maintaince light came on after getting oiled changed. How does this get reset?


Try this procedure first:

1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If it is the SRS light, a different procedure will be required.

Wrence light and engine light both came on the morning--what does this mean?


The wrench light means you need maintaince done like getting your oil changed. It can be turned off by resetting it. The check engine lite could have came on because of a problem as simple as the gas cap being loose. It also might be time for your car to have it's normal service interval maintenance done. Good luck!
