Please note:

Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/om/AC0606/AC0606O00192A.pdf

Owner's Manual page 193-197.

Resetting the Engine Oil Life
Indicator

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
(II) position.

If maintenance service is done by
someone other than your dealer,
reset the maintenance minder as
follows:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
the engine oil life indicator is
displayed.

3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 10 seconds. The engine
oil life indicator and the
maintenance item code(s) will
blink.

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.’’

Important Maintenance
Precautions

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
information.

What is a Wrench light indicator in my 2008 honda Civic


The wrench light indicator is a reminder that you are do for your next service(For example:oil change, air filter change, trans fluid change and so on) base on the miles on your car. A lot of people just get a oil change and have the light reset. If you read your car manual book it will tell you what service you need to do. Note: light come on every 3,000 miles and you can reset any time you want.
How to reset light:
1.with headlight off, turn the key on. Do not start the car.
2. On the left side of th dash below the heat vent there is a button that says "sel reset". push that button until you see "oil life" and a percent on the gauge display screen.
3.Now while on the oil life display, push and hold the "sel reset" button until screen start to flash. you might have to hold for 45sec.
4.when the screen start flashing, release button and hold it down again. might have to hold for about 45sec.

if you did it right the percent should go up to 100% and the wrench light should go out.

Yellow/gold wrench light 2006 honda accord is still on after an oil change . How do I reset it?


Is the oil life low? If so scroll up the oil life and hold down the RESET knob until it goes out. If the oil life is high, then service is needed.

I found that on my 2008 Saturn Aura (4 button DIC) that the following steps must take place to reset the oil life:
1) place ignition switch in run position
2) cycle through features by pressing the info button until the oil life is illuminated
3) depress all 4 DIC buttons at the same time; instrument panel will read "reset oil life"
4) release all buttons
5) depress bottom button (w/left pointing arrow) and oil life will read "acknowledged"

Good luck

I need a diagram of dash board lights e,g the oil, the battery and the other light, the yellow warning light with a picture of an engine with a fan on top and on the front. What does it mean when that...


that light means you have a problem with the emission system of the car ity could be anything from a loose gas cap to a failed sensor . As long as the light isnt flashing then you can drive the car untill you get it checked out. If the light is FLASHING then DONT DRIVE THE CAR.

The "wrench" is illuminated on my dashboard display despite having been serviced. How can I/my mechanic shut it off?


Give this a try. Put the key in the ignition and turn it to position 2. Push the selector button until the dash displays "Oil Life" Press and hold the selection button until the indicator blinks A1 on the Left (About 10 Seconds). Release the button, and press and hold for another 10 seconds. The indicator should reset and read 100%. Hope that works for you,
