After much BS from several dealers I have concluded that this does require a trip to the local dealership to have their little black box attached to the on board computer so that the lamps can be turned off. They call their black box a DRB "Diagnostic Reader Box". Before 1996 this is a DRBI which I believe was the precursor to the OBD systems that are currently used. The only dealer I talked with that knew what was causing the lamp to be on (talked with 3) wanted $45 to reset it (plus undisclosed sums for other things that they may find with their black box once they hook it up). I have personally elected to remove the bulb since it doesn't impact the operation of the engine.

(A different remedy is take it to an auto parts store. Most can diagnose the problem and reset the light. Those lights are there for a reason. By removing the bulb or ignoring it larger problems can occur. Machineryman)

The Maintenance Required Light is not the same as the Check Engine Light. The Maintenance Required Light is telling you that there is scheduled maintenance that needs to be performed. It may mean it needs an oil/filter change. To find out what needs to be done look at the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual.

Go to an AutoZone. They have the little plug in boxthat checks your computer. Usually it's from stuff like piston mis-fires. They might be able to look at it and reset it. It might not go away imediatly, but it worked on mine.

After replacing the oxygen sensor how do you shut off the maintenance required light on a 1992 jeep Cherokee?

Take off the positive battery cable, whereas this is the power source for the vehicle. Leave the cable off for 30 minutes then place it back on. Once on, turn over the ignition so your radio, interior lights etc.. come on. Let it sit for 20 seconds, then start the vehicle. This should eliminate the maintenance light. If it comes back on within 10 minutes, you may want to have a computer diagnostics done on the vehicle; to look for faulty codes etc...
