If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.
put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
Sit inside the driver's seat of the HondaAccord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.
Insert the key in the ignition.
Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.
Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.
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.
Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.
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.
It is illegal to reset the odometer (total mileage the car has travelled, which is now how the odometer is defined), but if you mean the trip meter:
To reset a trip meter, display it, and then press and hold the Select/Reset knob until the number resets to ‘‘0.0’’.
Hope this helps you.
**Press and hold the odometer select/reset button the entire time you perform steps 2-4!! 1. turn your key to the "on" position. 2. Press and hold the odometer select/reset button 3. start the engine and wait 10secs.(light will blink and shut off) 4. shut the engine off. 5. restart the engine and light should disappear. Hopefully this helps
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.
