    A new twist on a very old (and repeated) type of post.....

    Has anyone figured out how to display the amount of miles you've traveled since the last time you reset the maint. Req light?

    I thought if I held the trip button down/turn the key to on, it'd show the mileage. But that doesn't work. Anytime you hit that trip button, the total mileage pops up.

    I wonder if the Scangauge could do that? (probably a long shot on that one)

    I usually document the miles when I do my oil changes so atleast I can predict when the next one is due...but I was busy the last time and forgot to write it down. Just curious to know if anyone figured that out yet?

    Good qusetion.....I don't think there is. On mine there are 5 hyphens that flash when you reset the light. When is start out during the reset procedure, there is normally 1 light, I guess each light represents 1K miles, so maybe that's as close as it gets??

    I use my trip A and B meters....Trip A gets reset at every tank of gas....and Trip B gets set at every oil change. I also do the math off my last oil changes for the records I have.

    Not sure if there is a way to get hte truck to tell you tho...

    Most auto service centers provide a decal at the top left corner (inside) windshield indicating when you reach ##### mileage, it's time for your next schedule service.

    I noticed on mine the light turns back on exactly 5000 miles after it was turned off...so I don't see any reason to keep track with your odometer.

    It flashes at 4500miles and stays on constant at 5,000miles.

    Thanks Gang,
    If anyone knows how - let me know! Just curious....

    My trip A is for my gas and my Trip B is for my tire rotations. Although, I don't necessarily need a Trip for my gas (my scangauge does that for me).

    As I mentioned earlier, I usually write the information down - but I forgot this time. I'd rather get the oil changed early (say, 4K miles). If I wait for the light to come on.....in some cases, my work schedule doesn't allow me time to get the oil changed until after 5kmiles or later with unknown time available. I like to get it done early when I can.
