What is wrong when Maintenance Required light stays lit? Water temp OK, oil filled properly. Why is it staying lit?

Question: What does the light mean. Don't just say it is the computer.I would like a general explanation of what the light ON covers in scope.

Mahalo,

Thanks for the tip it has the bank 1 sensor 1 oxygen sensor heater circuit failure. I replaced it using this guide and then cleared the codes and the light has not come back on.
