The dealer will not do it because the vehicle needs to be properly serviced, by people who know how to service it. The correct procedure is as follows: With the ignition key off, press and hold the trip button / while doing this, turn the ignition key to the on position / The driver's instrument panel screen will now read "service reset." / Now press the silver knurled knob on the right side of the steering wheel controls, this will confirm the operation.

Each vehicle model will have instructions in the manual to reset the check engine light when oil change service is performed. You can contact your dealer by phone and ask for the service manager to get instructions to reset the light or refer to your user manual or look up your manual on the Internet and view the instructions there.
Several ideas. 1) When the dealer completed servicing it, did you check the oil to see if it was full? If it wasn't it would need added oil sooner. 2) .9 litre does sound excessive, but what was it using before? 3) Find a way to give the bottom side of your Toy a really good flashlight inspection to look for leaks and seepage. This should give you a clue as to what is going on. If it is dry underneath, someone needs to check the oil weekly until a pattern is established of oil usage. Be blessed.
These lights are glorified timers and when the oil gets changed the timer has to be reset. Try looking in the owners manual to see if it tells you how to reset it. If not you should be able to call you local dealer service department and they should tell you. Hope this helps. Good luck.
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
If maintenance service is done by
someone other than your dealer,
reset the maintenance minder as
1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
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.’’
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
