Oil Replacement Reminder Light USA Models

• An oil replacement reminder light will illuminate or flash to remind the driver to change the engine oil depending on the vehicle driving distance.

• Illuminating and flashing of the oil replacement reminder light are operated based on the accumulated vehicle driving distance memorized in the combination meter (meter ECU).
