The maintenance light comes on when a service is required, and this is based on mileage and/or time driven. The noise is something unrelated, but you should have it looked at during the service. Find out which service is needed, look here and select the scheduled maintenance service closest to your actual mileage. http://repairpal.com/estimator?car_type_id=4271
