Had routine maintenance done just before I hit the 20,000 mile mark with my
'05.  Now the MAINT REQD light has gone on.  Can anyone tell me how to turn
it off?  TIA

They forgot to reset it when they did your maintenance.  Same thing
happened to ours last time.  There's a complicated process to go
through that's in your owners manual.

Not particularly complicated:

1. Turn the power switch IG-ON and make sure that the ODO/TRIP meter is
displaying the odometer.

2. Turn the power switch OFF.

3. While pushing the ODO button, turn the power switch IG-ON.

4. The reminder light will flash until the reset is completed.

5. The reset is complete when the reminder light turns OFF.  Release the
ODO button.

6. After the reset, the ODO/TRIP meter displays as a set of zeros for 1
second, then displays your normal odometer mileage.

Just once, actually, but I found it online instead of in the manual, and
I saved it as a file, so it's easy to just copy and paste when someone
asks.
