    First off all this yellow blinking Main Req light has started blinking for like 5-10 secs after I start the truck.

    I changed my oil today but the light has not stopped. It doesn't come on while driving...only at startup. I added like 5.7 quarts of oil so I'm not sure what is going on.

    Please help lol

    Ok you have to reset the light

    1. Start truck
    2. Make sure Odometer is set to ODO xxxxx
    3. Turn key to full off position
    4. Push odometer button and hold
    5. turn key back to on position
    6. Continue holding the odometer button
    7. Dashes will appear where the mileage should be located, the dashes will then disappear one by one. Hold button tell they are all gone!
    1 sec(- - - - -) 1.5sec(- - - -).. (- - -).. (- -).. (-)
    When the dashes are gone the odometer will blink your current miles once, and the maintenance required light will turn off.

    Yeah, it's a countdown. It'll start it all up again in 4,500 miles w/ the flashing, then at 5k it'll just stay on.

    the manual sucks ass and I saw no such thing there about how to re-setting it. All it said was that the blinking means time to change the oil

    Well Mavs are 2 seed....1&2 don't play eachother in the 1st round...so I doubt Mavs were "scared". Unfortunately I think Cavs are going to win this year. Spurs vs Mavs gonna go 6-7 with the winner being worn out and losing next round. Might be Lakers vs Suns in WCF and Orlando vs Cavs in ECF.
