    Just a head's up..if anyone's "Maintenance Required" light comes on you can shut that off by holding down the Mileage Reset Knob down with your car off and then starting it up wiht the key.

    If I change the oil before the light comes on and do the reset now, will it prevent it from coming on for another 5000 miles?

    Yes. Changeing the oil now, and resetting the light will prevent it from comming on until the next oil change is due.
