Is it ok to reset the maintenance required light on your car yourself?
I see vids on YouTube but I don't want to mess up anything. **My car has already had an oil change and tire rotation within the last 3 months. Apparently they did not reset the light I don't want to waste time waiting on them to do it. I...

[@1134713,JamaI] Lol. Apparently you're also completely insane. No worries though, many of us are.
Some autoparts stores will lend you the thing that you can see the code - and they will tell you what is wrong. But they cant reset the code.
[@467302,iamnikki] Oh - that's weird - if the check engine light is on then there should be a code.

[@760047,MarmeeMarch] I never mentioned a check engine light
[@467302,iamnikki] Oh - I guess my car is too old - it doesn't have a maint light.

I wouldn't without fault diagnosis first. If it's stayed on after servicing by a mechanic they need to re-check first before disabling it, in my opinion.
I reset mine all the time..
If your car allows you to reset it as mine does than go ahead and do it.

Maintenance light ? I've never heard of such a thing. Us 3rd world peeps are lagging it seems. 🙂

If you know how, reset it.

Not a problem. I've reset many for people over the years. As long as good maintenance is done? I wouldn't worry about it.
[@467302,iamnikki] I know but you seem to be mad at mechanics for some reason.

[@760047,MarmeeMarch] not sure where you picked up on anger. There was absolutely none there. He mentioned BS repair bills. All I wanted to know is if he saw people being taken advantage of, i.e, customers being charged for 'repairs' that weren't needed in the first place. I can understand how things can be misread and wrongly interpreted.
[@467302,iamnikki] Mostly frustration and a mechanic that usually rips off women. Because they have gotten away with it for so many years. They even try it on me. One guy at a tire store told me the benefits of filling up my tires with Nitrogen instead of regular air for 10 dollars a tire. Women - and I hate to say this because it is generalizing but they will say key words like safety / and more stable. And the woman would just go - uh huh and fork over the bucks.

Go back to where your car was serviced, tell them what happened, and have them reset it.

Are you sure that is what the light is? Is there something else?
iamnikki · 26-30, F
[@78387,Stereoguy] did it myself

[@467302,iamnikki] You are a rockstar! 😎

[@78387,Stereoguy] 🙄 basically all i had to do was hold the odometer button and turn the key over
