    different system. try this, push in and hold the trip reset button, turn key to on position until the light goes out. turn key off and then start the car. it should be off.

    Maintenance required light is a timed light indicating you're due for your routine maintenance. (approximately every 7500 miles on this car) Such as an oil change or multi-point inspection and service based on your miles. Make sure your service is performed and your technician resets the light afterwords.
