Is the master warning light indicating that the maintenance interval has been exceeded?

A yellow triangle with an exclamation mark lit up on my car’s dashboard. In the manual, it’s called the “master warning light.” It usually comes on when something like the low washer fluid or cruise control isn’t working right. To know exactly what’s wrong, you’d usually check the LCD display.

But in my case, there’s no message on the display. When I got the car, I set it to remind me to change the oil after driving 5000 miles since I mostly drive long distances on highways. For the past week, the display has been reminding me about the upcoming service. Today, when I hit 5000 miles, the reminders stopped. But when I reached around 5050 miles, the yellow triangle warning light came on without any explanation on the display.

I checked the Bluelink diagnostics, but it didn’t show any errors. Could it just be that I passed the oil change interval I set?

The Master Warning light is definitely a crucial indicator for your vehicle’s advanced systems. It’s like the guardian angel of your car, giving you a heads-up when something needs attention. Always important to heed its warnings!
