The "manitenance required" light on my 04 has started to flash 10 times when I turn the key on, but goes out and stays out afterward. I cannot find anything in the Helms manual on this topic. Can anyone educate me on what might be causing this? Oil and filter were just changed less than 500 miles ago,and there is no real performance drop since this started happening.

You need to reset the MID. The car does not know that you changed the oil. In 04's the MID is just a mileage counter. It will flash on startup 7500 miles after the last reset, and it will stay continuously lit after 10,000 miles.

yup ^ exactly.

the light just blinks to warn you that oil change maintainence is comming up very soon.
it will stay solid when its really time to change.. which is the 10,000kms.

i personally dont bother with the light at all. i just keep resetting it when it shows up. i change my oil at 5,000kms max.
