That just means you're due for an oil change. they automatically come on after 5000 miles. To reset the light, put it on the odometer display in your instrument cluster. turn the key off. now push and hold the odometer/trip reset button while you turn on the key to the IGN position. You will see 5 dashes on the odometer display, which will sequencially disappear and then go back to the odometer when it's done. after your odometer shows again, you can release the odometer/trip reset button and your maintenence light should be off.

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'd light was lit and do not know what is and how to fix


The '91 & newer models turned the maint, req. light on by a timer in the ECU & the ECU turns it on around 120k miles based on a timer and requires a dealer or shop visit to be reset.But it isnt going to hurt anything by being on.

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.

I have a Honda 2000 Odyssesy and the maintenance required light comes on and stays on. We recently changed the oil and filter. I do not notice any problems with the runnning of the vehicle. An auto part...


The maint req. light is a mileage counter. It will turn on every 7500 miles after it has been turned off because that is the factory recommended oil change interval. To turn off the light: with key off, push and hold the trip odometer reset button in. While still holding in the button, turn the key to on but not start. Continue holding the button in until the maint. req. light goes out. Turn key to off.

Code P1456: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control System leakage.
Code P0740: Transmission lock up control system.

the first code can be caused by a loose or non-factory fuel cap or a leak.
The second code indicates the transmission torque converter lock-up solenoid could be faulty.

Clear the codes and drive normally for several days. See if the Check Engine light comes on again. If so, have the codes read out and prepare for some repairs. If the light stays off, you had intermittent faults which occur from time to time and nothing is probably wrong.

Reset maint req


Reset - step 1 turn the key to the 'on' position. using the trip meter button, toggle the lcd until 'ODO' is displayed. step 2 turn the key off. now, push and hold the trip meter button. while holding the trip meter button, turn the key to 'on'. step 3 while you continue to hold the trip meter button, you will see on the lcd disply five (5) small dashes and they will begin to 'count down' rather quickly. step 4 continue holding the trip meter button and once all the dashes have been cleared, your lcd will display six zeros (000000) - release the trip meter button now - and then the lcd will display 'ODO' and your current mileage. at this time, your 'maintenance required'/oil change light has been reset.
