RESETTING 1996 2.5TL, CL, and 3.2TL models



The Maintenance Reminder indicator informs you when it is time for scheduled maintenance. When it is near 7500 miles (12,000 km) since the last maintenance, the indicator will turn yellow. If you exceed 7500 miles (12,000 km), the indicator will turn red. The indicator can be reset by inserting the ignition key or other similar object into the slot below the indicator. This will extinguish the indicator for the next 7500 miles (12,000 km).
