Re: MAINTENANCE!!!

red means you need an oil change, take your key and put it in there, its a button you use to reset it......take your key and push it in, it will turn green, it basicaly is a indicater of when your last oil change was

Re: MAINTENANCE!!!

well, it doesn't mean you NEED an oil change. it's just there as a reminder. I forget after how many miles it is. if yove been keeping up with your maintenance, just disregard it and reset it as xshadownetx said

Re: MAINTENANCE!!!

It doesn't know you just had a tune-up done unless you or the dealer resets it after said tune-up.

Re: MAINTENANCE!!!

Ya, it is set to go off every 7,000 miles to remind you of oil changes and any other scheduled maintenance.

Reset it with your key. You're owners manual may have further details.
