Why is my maintenance required light back on? I just cleared it back at 46k miles.....

Is there a serious issue or is this another interval thing and I can just clear it?

PS - I haven't cleared it in a while, what was the procedure again?

This is covered on page 57 of the owners manual.

If you don't have a manual you can find it here.

Thanks a ton for the link to the procedure.

But the other link is just a table of contents...

My main question here is: Is the maintenance required light a warning sign for some serious disaster? Or is it just at certain intervals?

When I cleared it at 46k, I asked around and everyone said it's no biggie, just clear it.

Click on the blue numbers on the right side.


The maint light is just a remonder of servicing required.

The check engine light is for impending meltdown.:confused:

No, no check engine light problems here.

I've just had a wave of car trouble and most of it is fixed, but I need a new battery as of right now, and that should be it...

-__- Work, grad school and now car stuff just kinda puts it all over the edge, you know?

I need a drink. lol

Thanks again guys, you rock.
