Inspection Light
The yellow inspection light (the one on the oil service bars) just came on this morning. I've recently changed the oil and reset the oil service computer. The green lights preceding it didn't come on before it. Any ideas on what this could be telling me?

Alright I got it figured out. Just a maintenance light. Easily reset by connecting pin 7 and pin 19 in the diagnostic port for 10 seconds.

Dont forget there are two 'timers' that use the same set of lights. One is distance/fuel consumption driven and the other time driven. Resetting one does not reset the other.
