Resetting Maintenance Req'd light.

This should be the procedure. It should also be listed in your owner's manual in case you need it later..

Turn the key to the 'on' position.

Press the trip button meter until it displays the “Trip A" odometer.

When the last dash disappears 000000 is displayed to indicate the maintenance counter has been reset.
