Check your oil dip stick to make sure there's enough oil, also try resetting the computer by disconnecting the NEGATIVE side to the car battery for 10 mins. You should always reset your maintenance light after you change the oil and here is how... Turn ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads ODO... not Trip A or B. Hold in the same button you used in step 1. While holding the button in, turn ignition key to 'ON'. The Maintenance Required light should blink and go out.
