When I start my car it start to blink for a good ten second and then it turns off, does this mean I have to check it out at a local dealer? or is it something that usually happen. Sorry i'm a newb still, thanks

You are a newb and no, only if it stays on constantly..it might mean that you're getting close though.

don't be dumb, the dealer with scorch your ass. with the key off, hold down the trip reset button on the dash gauge panel, turn the key to on but don't start the car, keep holding down the button until the light goes out.

I don't understand how ANY of these posts help the guy...he wasn't asking how to reset the light, just if he should be worried about that it's staying on 10 seconds after he starts the car.

Unless the TS wasn't being clear, reading owns have the people that posted in this thread.

its routine
the maint light comes on every so many miles as laid out in the owners manual (or so many miles after the last time it was reset, often after routine maintenance)

^^Thank you.. if I could rep you, I would..pretty much the only one that actually ANSWERED the question, and not tell him to search how to reset the light.

^ ya, i only say search if a thread is right next to the one that's started. if it's a different section or been a while since i've seen a thread on the topic i'll just answer, especially if the ts thinks there might be something wrong

well if he re-sets the bloody light then he won't worry about it, will he?

And next time he gets a CEL, let's just tell him not to worry about the problem and just erase the code and turn off the monitor.
