You need to hold in the Odometer reset button while it is displaying the actual millage not the trip a or b. While holding the reset button start the engine turn it off then start it again, you may at that point release the reset button and your all set.

2006 Toyota Corolla le - maintenance light on front panel - engine serviced with oil and air filter changed two months ago. All liquids fine, car working well...what might it be??

  • That light is an indicator that the required miles have been drove and it's time to do an oil change. The light should be reset after every oil change as the computer keeps track of the miles to warn you when it's time again should you forget.

  • If you want to turn the light off then follow these steps.

  • Push and hold the trip button and then turn the ignition to on while holding the trip reset button. Keep holding for 10 seconds and the maintenance required light will go offf.

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.

    How can the maintenance required light be reset following an oil change?

    Here's how you reset your oil maintenance light.

    To reset the light,
    Turn the ignition on
    Make sure the odometer displays "ODO"
    1.Turn the key off
    2.Press and hold down the same button you use to get to "ODO"
    3.Turn the key back to ON ( while still holding down the button)
    4.Hold the button in until all the flashing lines on the odometer go away and the bunch of "000000" shows up and the maint reset light will turn off.
    Your'e done.

    If this doesn't work, you would have to try it on "trip A" instead of "ODO".

    Reset maintenance light

    If I remember correctly, on the dash you have a select button. Hold the button down then turn the key on, until the maintenance light blinks and goes out. Turn the key off then back on and your light should be out.

    Please note:

    Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

    Owner's Manual page 193-197.

    Resetting the Engine Oil Life

    Your dealer will reset the display
    after completing the required
    maintenance service. You will see
    ‘‘OIL LIFE 100 %’’ on the odometer/
    trip meter display the next time you
    turn the ignition switch to the ON
    (II) position.

    If maintenance service is done by
    someone other than your dealer,
    reset the maintenance minder as

    1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
    (II) position.

    2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
    the engine oil life indicator is

    3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
    more than 10 seconds. The engine
    oil life indicator and the
    maintenance item code(s) will

    4. Press the Select/Reset knob for
    more than 5 seconds. The
    maintenance items code(s) will
    disappear, and the engine oil life
    will reset to ‘‘100.’’

    Important Maintenance

    If you have the required service
    done but do not reset the display, or
    reset the display without doing the
    service, the system will not show the
    proper maintenance intervals. This
    can lead to seriousmechanical
    problems because you will no longer
    have an accurate record of when
    maintenance is needed.
    Your authorized Honda dealer
    knows your vehicle best and can
    provide competent, efficient service.
    However, service at a dealer is not
    mandatory to keep your warranties
    in effect. Maintenance may be done
    by any qualified service facility or
    person who is skilled in this type of
    automotive service. Make sure to
    have the service facility or person
    reset the display as previously
    described. Keep all receipts as proof
    of completion, and have the person
    who does the work fill out the
    maintenance record. Check your
    warranty booklet for more

    Maintenance Required Light

    The instruction is in your owners manual. I also perform my own maintenance. Well, here's the steps if you still haven't done it. Good Luck

    Put the key into the ignition and press the odometer button. While holding down the odometer button, turn the key to the on position. You will see "-----"on the odometer display. It will count down "-----" "----" "---" "- -" "-". Then you will see zeros on the odometer display "000000". You can now release the odometer button. This will reset the maintenance light on your dash.
