Of course it goes off when the engine is not running, that is because there is no oil prerssure oil pressure

Hi Christina,your oil pressure switch could be bad,first check oil level on dipstick and if okay,check this link.The Oil Pressure Switch is located:Under hood, center, front engine area, above oil filter, mounted in block. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/parts/Duralast-Oil-Pressure-Switch/1990-Honda-Accord/_/N-igrppZ8znc6?itemIdentifier=123844_170914_8537_

If you brought your car to Honda for service, they probably forgot to reset the maintenance reminder. If you took it to another shop, they probably did not know how to reset it. Anyway, the reset procedure is:

Put your key in the ignition
Turn the key to the II position for a couple of seconds
Then turn the key to the off position
Now push and hold in the odometer reset button
While still holding the odometer reset button, turn the key back to the II position
Hold for I think 10 seconds or so and your maintenance reminder light should reset it self.

Simple way to check if anything goes wrong is to go to Autozone store (if you are in US) and scan for trouble codes (if there are any of them). They do it free of charge. If you get any codes you can get the explanation of them here

SOURCE: 1997 honda accord overheating

well you should first hard wire the non working fan to the battery to see if it is ok, then I would check the engine coolant temperature sensor, it is the sensor that tells the computer to turn the radiator fan on

Problems with a new car should be under warrenty. Take it back to your dealer as attempting to repair it may void your warrenty and cost you big money.

If the oil pressure is low at idle, that is due to normal wear. But if it comes on at speed, you may have a problem. Replacing the sending unit is inexpensive.

Car just died on our 1991 Honda bf thinks its the timing belt


I'll tell you four common failures on 90-93 Accords: 1.) The PGM-FI relay goes bad cutting power to the fuel pump. 2.)The distributor ignitor goes bad cutting spark. 3.) The ignition coil goes bad cutting spark also. 4.) The electrical portion of the ignition switch goes bad cutting power. (Quick check: try wiggling the key in a circular motion while its running, if it dies the ign switch is bad.) Note: Watch the distributor rotor while cranking. If the rotor turns while cranking than the t-belt isn't broken.
