This light is warning you of maintenance required... presuming you did maintenance required.. you can reset light by following the steps in video below. If there is a problem that is still needing service... this light will come back on.
Hope this helps you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBaMNHsEobs
To remove the "maintenance needed" light from your dash display:
1.) Insert the key into the ignition
2.) Hold the "odometer reset" button on the dash
3.) Turn the key to the "on" position DON"T START VEHICLE and wait for the dashes/hyphens to countdown, and then "zeros" will flash
4.) Release the "odometer reset" button, and start your car.
Maintenance light should be gone after this is complete. For future reference, this will work everytime. If you have any cases where is doesn't work, you must have performed it incorrectly. The "maintanence" light is generic and only runs on a timer, and your service provider is suppose to reset it after they perform maintanence
This procedure is suppose to be done buy a service tech that has changed you engine's oil. If they have forgotten and you want to reset the light, then it is acceptable. The procedure is easy. Step one:(with the key out of the ignition) gently press and hold in the mileage reset button. Step two: (Still holding the button in) slide the ignition key into the ignition and turn the key to the run position (do not start the engine) Step: wait 10seconds and you will see the "Maintenance Light" go out. Now let the button go. Step five: turn the ignition key back to off and the Maintenance Needed light is now reset. I hope that helps, let me know, good luck.
on some of the vehicles, you turn the ignition key on, but do not start the engine, then press the accelerator to the floor 3 times within 10 seconds, do this pretty fast, then turn key off, then turn key back on again , but do not start, look and see if the maintenance / service light has went out.
Maintenance required indicator reminds you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance.It is tell you that you need to get an oil change and all of you fluids to be checked and serviced. After the recommended time or mileage period the light will come on telling you it is time for your car to be serviced for whatever problems there might be. The dealer will reset the indicator after completeing the scheduled maintenance. You can reset the indicator yourself by Turning off the engine. press and hold the select/reset button in the instrument panell, then turn the ignition swithch ON(II). Hold the button for about ten seconds, until the indicator resets. If this doesn't stop the maintenance light from coming on then you need to take it to a honda dealer.
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

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

more than 5 seconds. The

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
