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
Good Luck

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help

      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.

      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.

      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.

    My 95 honda accord just reached the 205,000 mile mark. Now, the "maintenence required" window is bright red! However, I can't hear or see anything wrong with it. What's the problem??

    That is just your maintenance minder system, which helps you keep track of when your oil changes are due. It goes from Green, Yellow to Red every 7500 miles. To reset, just insert your key into the slot next to the Red window. It will then reset to Green. -hope I'm understanding you correctly.

    Red light says maintenance required, could it be air in tires are low?

    The maintenance light is to let you know when your recommended services such as oil change, filter replacements and so on are due. if you want to reset the light i think all you have to do is push in and hold the trip odometer peg until the light resets or about 10 to 15 seconds. The light should flash a few times then go out. Do this with the key in the ignition and in the "on" position without the engine running. Then start the car and make sure the light is gone.

    What color is the maintanence light on a 93 honda

    You should not have a maintenance light, as those appeared on the 1998 model Accords and up. My old 1996 Accord had an indicator in the gauge cluster which showed either green or red. To reset it, if you looked beside the indicator, you would see a slot to put your key in to reset the indicator.
