Hi, Does anyone know how to turn off the "maintenance required" light? I did it with no problem on my '04 but I'm having trouble on my '00. I followed the directions given in the manual but the light stays on. I think they may be missing a step. Thanks folks. I really appreciate this site. Bill

The proceedure for the 00-06 Insight is the same.

See this recent thread in this forum:

What can happen is the switch contacts fail. Pressing FIRMLY is the only countermeasure short of replacement (requires entire gauge assembly). Repair may be possible but such an adventure has not been reported in the forums thus far.

HTH! :)

I realize this is an old post, but I found this shortly after reading it:

A: The information printed in the year 2000 owner's manual is incorrect. This was corrected for the year 2001 manual. To turn off the "maintenance required" light, follow this procedures:

1. Press and hold the trip button until the end of step 5.
2. Turn the ignition key to the "on" position.
3. Wait for the "maintenance required" light to turn off (about 10 seconds).
4. Turn the ignition key to the "lock" position.
5. Turn the ignition key back to the "on" position.
