maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help


    • 1

      Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.

    The maintenance required light is on but no engine or transmission codes show up. What else could be the problem? The oil was just changed. How do I turn the light off?


    The maintenance required light does not indicate any problem with the engine or systems like a Check Engine Light (CEL) does. This light is normally a reminder to change the oil. Getting the light to turn off is really easy.

    In order, follow these steps:

    1. Press and hold down the trip odometer reset button.
    2. Turn the key to the on position without starting the engine.
    3. Continue to hold down the reset button; The light should go out within 10-15 seconds.

    God bless and good luck.
