    Does the Maintenance Light beep 10 times normally upon start?

    Just wanted to find out if that is normal. The Maintenance Needed flashing light upon ignition blinks 10 times. I'm assuming it's normal.

    Normal? What it means is your van needs service. When it stps blinking and stays on steady you are overdue. What year Ody do you have? Do you have a manual? Here's one:

    Lots of interesting stuff in there.

    just had the transmission done, so maybe they forgot to reset that light

    could that be the issue. it has 64k on it and i just changed the oil and filter.

    I get more confused. What would changing the transmission have to do with the maint required light? They changed the trans or just the fluid? Did a dealer change the engine oil or did you?
    If you just changed the oil yourself, follow the instructions in the owner's manual to reset the light.

    they changed the transmission and the fluid

    I don't think they reset it. I also changed the oil myself.

    Well they will not reset the light when doing the transmission. It is, in the 99-04 models, a countdown timer. It starts flashing around 6000 miles from the last reset and will glow steady about 7400. The reset procedure for dyi is in the owner's manual. Do you have an owner's manual? If not, there are pdf files of them in the link I posted above. It will tell you all about how your van works, and gives a maintenance schedule.
