Question about 2004 Honda Civic
I found the answer to your problem.
Honda programed this "maintenance required" into the cars computer to get you to bring the car to a dealer for their expensive oil changes and such. You can do those things yourself or at less expensive places. Nothing wrong with your car. Just a reminder to change your oil, look at your air filter, check your fluids. To turn off the light yourself ----------------------------------
The answer is even in your manual! Hold down the trip meter button, turn the car to on, wait about 20 seconds, start the car, and let go of the button. Light is reset until the next mileage interval.
*make sure lo beam headlights are turned OFF during the procedure*

Normally if its going to be an O2 sensor,, the check engine light would come on, not the maintenance light, I don't know if your car has 2 different ones, My 2000 civic does though,, normally a maint light comes on if its time for an oil change , etc... rest the light,, heres how you do that
you use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.
with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on.
continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go out
when the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.
your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next service
