Summary
The Maintenance Required light will come on when it is time to replace the oil.

The vehicle does not test the oil if it is good or bad but simply comes on every 5000 miles.

The light can be reset at any time, with most resetting it after the oil has been changed.

When the light appears, it is not an emergency but a reminder to get the oil changed soon.

Modern synthetic oil is often rated to go 10,000 miles depending on the brand.

The car should not be driven 10,000 miles without an oil change, but it does not hurt a vehicle to go another 100-200 miles or so.
