Maintenance light is illuminated on my 2011 Dodge Caravan.

Customer Question

Maintenance light is illuminated on my 2011 Dodge Caravan. The vehicle drives fine. A friend recommended to try and reset the light by disconnecting the plug at the transmission. Trying to find where that is on the transmission.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: The maintenance light on the dash board (or check engine light) came on 3 days ago. The vehicle seems to be operating properly.
JA: Are you fixing your Caravan yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, just trying to reset the light to see if there is a real problem since the vehicle is running fine.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.

To reset oil change indicator after performing scheduled maintenance:

  1. Turn ignition to ON/RUN, with engine OFF.

    NOTE: On vehicles with keyless START, without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position (DO NOT START the engine).

  2. Fully depress accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds.
  3. Turn ignition to OFF/LOCK.

    NOTE: On vehicles with keyless START, without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the OFF/LOCK position.

  4. Start engine. If indicator message illuminates when engine is started, repeat reset procedure.
