My change oil light came on. I got the oil changed, but the light is still on. I don't have an owner's manual. Someone told me you have to push the trip odometer and hold it while the lights are on or something as such. I'm having no luck and wondered if anyone REALLY knew how to trigger the switch.
I had an Olds that that happened to. Had many friends tell me to do this and to do that. What I should have done was bring it to be serviced. I didn't and the motor froze up. Its in the junk yard now. Go straight to the serviceman. Do not drive it. Have the oil pump checked. Hope you fare better than I did.

You mean the change oil light, right ?? If it has a red button on the fuse box, you turn the key on and push the button, the change oil light should flash, then you push the red button until the light goes off. If you don't have the red button, you turn the key on, push the gas pedal to the floor three or four times, and the light should go off. The method for your model should be in the back of your owners manual.
Press reset until OIL LIFE is displayed. Hold in button for 10 seconds. Select oil life and hold in button until it resets. It should be same in your owners manual. You can always ask what the step is, but they may be annoyed that you are not using them for oil changes. If you have them perform the oil change, then its included. Its better for you because they will be using quality Honda Oil filters and oil.
It's in the owners manual too but with the key on and the engine off fully depress the gas pedal three times watching the oil change soon light and it will flash and go out, then start the car. it'll stay off till it calucates that it needs changed again.
OK, now you added 2 quarts of oil just because someone told you to. Did you check the oil level yourself? That is very suspicious unless your engine is smoking and burning oil. Park the car on a level surface, shut the engine off, and after 30 minutes remove the dip stick and check the oil level. You may find it is overfull. If it is that is just as bad as unde-full. In any case, Change the oil & filter and use a quality filter such as Purolator or Wix and the correct weight oil which will probably be 5w20. Check your owner's manual to be sure. If the oil light is still on, have a oil pressure test run. You may have nothing more than a bad oil pressure sending unit.
The change oil light is controlled by the main engine computer which monitors driving conditions and clock hours. Based on this data it suggest an oil change interval. The system, however has no way to know the oil was changed unless you tell it so. In your owners manual there is a procedure to "reset" this process in the engines computer. its normally done by holding a button and turning the ignition key on at the same time. It should be listed under oil change in the owners manual.
To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed.
Talking about the "Change Oil" notification when you first turn on the key? You need to reset the indicator, by (guessing from memory, check your owners manual) turning on key, and pressing the brake 4 times in 5 seconds.
Hope this helps.
