What does the maintenance required Warning Light mean?

The maintenance required Warning Light is located on the instrument panel. When this light illuminates, then the vehicle is due for schedule maintenance based on the miles that have been driven since the last maintenance.

Tip

Like all warning lights, the maintenance required Warning Light briefly illuminates when you turn the car on. The light is only a problem if it stays lit when the engine is turned on.
