Question about 2002 Honda Accord

Maintenance required light on my 2002 honda accord se is on

The light just came on this morning. The car has approximately 103,379 miles on it. The only work that I've had done on it is replacing the throttle sensor. Also, I am pretty confident that the previous owner changed the timing belt at 60,000 miles.

    My maintenance required light came on at 98,000 miles and still won't go off now at 105,000 miles. My timing belt has NOT been changed yet, and there are no codes showing when hooked up.

Best way to find out is pull the codes and see what is stored. Id could be simple fix, to a major problem. Not knowing the codes, I can't guess.

2002 Honda Accord SE maintenance required light flashes and the radio shuts off


So..... have you been maintaining the car? I dont know if the radio is related ot not. Usually when doing the sevices the mechanic should be resetting the maint light. If that isnt being done, thats bad. To reset the light.turn on the key, no push the trip button until it reads miles, now turn key off. hold in the trip button in while turning the key on,keep holding the button in, until it goes out. .

The maintenance light on my accord 1991 turned red does this mean i need a tune up oil change which has been more that 7000 miles or am i looking at something that will cost me alot


THE LIGHT COMES ON TO LET YOU KNOW WHEN MAINTENENCE IS COMING DUE OTHER THAN OIL CHANGES. SUCH AS, TIRE ROTATIONS, TRANSMISSION SERVICE, ETC. ROUTINE MAINTENCE ACCORDING TO APPROXIMATED MILAGE. IT SHOULD HAVE A BUTTON ON THE DASH TO THE LEFT OF THIS LIGHT THAT CAN BE PUSHED IN WITH A PEN TO RESET. REFER TO OWNERS MANUAL FOR SCHEDULED ROUTINE MAINTENANCE ACCORDING TO YOUR OVERALL MILEAGE

Maintence required on red


Maintenance Required is a light that comes on after a predetermined number of miles. For example, if the maintenance schedule Honda set for the car calls for an oil change at 3000 miles, a new fan belt at 6000 miles, and another oil change at 9000 miles, then the maintenance required light will come on every 3000 miles and stay on until it is reset by the dealer. Some people, especially those that do their own regular maintenance but don't have a way to reset the light themselves, find this an annoyance. But others find it useful and take their cars in to the dealer every time the light comes on, and they rest assured that all of the regular maintenance is always done on time.

What this light does NOT do however is signal that there is anything immanently wrong with your car. It is not a "Check Engine" light (that's the one you should worry about if it ever comes on), but merely a reminder for you to do preventative maintenance. That doesn't mean you should *ignore* it, per se, as you want to make sure you have your car on some kind of maintenance schedule, even if yours is not as strict as Honda's. But there is no need to panic.

Maintenance Required won't go off on a 2002 Accord?!


Hi. If this is the original timing belt on this vehicle, i would recommend changing it as soon as possible. a worn timing belt can cause issues in timing and it can also bend the valve assembly if the belts teeth become shorten or bare. This service light can be reset but, it will continue to come on in intervals until you preform the diagnostic scan and repair the parts that are highlighted by the cpu. I seriously recommend that this car be driven to a dealership for a quick scan so that you can prevent any serious damage that may occur.

Please rate and god bless:)

Maintenance required light is on. 1996 Honda Accord


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

Maintenance Required light


The light needs to be reset. Usually after an oil change they will reset it for you. Directions for doing yourself>>> turn off the engine, press and hold the select/reset button in the instrument panel then turn the ignition switch on. Hold the button until the indicator resets (approximately ten seconds). Directions from your Honda manual. Hope this helps!
