This means you are due for your service. oil, inspection one of those. look at your mileage and check your warranty service book and see which service is due by comparing your mileage with the books mileage.

Maint ReQ"D


The light is determined by the odometer. It will stay on every 7,500 miles after being reset. Usually at around 5,000 miles it will start to flash, and the flashing increases the closer you get to the 7,500 mile mark. It doesn't mean anything is wrong at all, as it is strictly a mileage minder. Brian is correct on how to reset it.

Maint. req. light blinks 10 times after start up?


When a Honda Maint Req light blinks, but then stops, it is telling you to change your oil. If you don't change it, eventually, the maint req light will stay on. Here is how you reset the maint req light: 1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the odometer button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If that doesn't work, try it this way: p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana}

With the igniition off, press and hold the odometer button, turn the key to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Keep the odometer button down until the oil light begins and ends flashing. Turn the key off, and then start car to see if it worked or not.

Maintenance reqd light came on at 44,000 miles...why?


It's probably your regular scheduled maintenance (oil change) light. Here's how you can reset that:

1. Turn the key to "on" so the electrical system is fired up (but engine is not running)

2. Set trip planner to "A" trip.

3. Turn key off (no electrical)

4. Hold down trip button, then turn key to "on" so the electrical system is fired up (but engine is not running).

5. "Maint Req" light will blink several times and then go off.

Good luck!

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
