Q: Maintenance light on

asked by on February 08, 2016

The maintenance light is on.

The maintenance light is designed to come on at certain intervals to remind you to service the car. If the car was serviced recently, sometimes they forget to reset the light. To reset it: turn the ignition on with the engine off, press the trip reset button 3 times, holding it down on the third press, wait for it to display all zeros. If you need the car serviced, consider YourMechanic -- our mechanics provide maintenance at your home or office.
