The indicator light is just a recommended scheduled maintenance reminder-it can't tell if the work is necessary or if you've done the work. For peace of mind, perform any scheduled maintenance that you haven't already done, and reset the nag light.I have read the owner's manual but just wanted to make sure I understand. My 06 Element just rolled over 62,500 miles and the maintenance required light has come on. Does this indicate there is an issue with the motor or, is it just a reminder for scheduled maintenance ? As best I can tell from the manual, it's just a reminder. I know how to reset it, I just don't want to ignore an issue with the vehicle.
