How the Maintenance Required Light Works
The Maintenance Required Indicator comes on when it is time for your regularly scheduled maintenance. Whenever this light is reset after performing an oil change, it will come on for two seconds when you turn the key to ignition for the first 6,000 miles. Between 6,000 and 7,500 miles, the light will turn on for two seconds and then flash for ten seconds when you turn the key to ignition. And then after 7,500 miles without having the scheduled maintenance performed, the indicator will remain on as a constant reminder.
