Re: Maintenance required light is orange
It comes on after a certain amount of miles
look it over check all belts hoses brakes fluids
and check the timing belt if all looks good put your key in the slot next to orange light and it will goto green again if you don't reset it will goto red in a few miles but it is not the check eng. light just a reminder
The light gose from green to orange to red
when it turns red you need an oil change
to reset light use your key in the slot on dash by the lights to reset it to green
it never gose out just changes color.

the maintenance indicator is designed to turn orange as a reminder to do maintenance and red if its not reset. if you do your maintenance then just ignore the reminder or reset it. theres a little black slot next to the indicator. stick your key in there and it should turn green again. hope this helps.
How's the car doing? Do you notice anything unusual on the car? As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have the car scanned by a scan tool. The orange light will be the check engine light and if this is lit the car needs some maintenance check.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
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.
On the buss connector for the turn signal switch with the signal flashing check voltage on the Green-W/trace. Should be intermittent 13.8 V.
1) The Orange at the signal selector buss should have +13.8v all time key is on.
2) Check red w/trace at brake lamp switch, With brake pressed both sides should have +13.8v
(if there is no voltage at above ORANGE we need to check the fuseclips for corrosion, then pull the fuseblock out and check for corrosion on the wires. The buss that feeds those fuses could have some corrosion going on.)
If the turn signal switch fails it will take out the brake lights also, IMHO this will be found to be the culprit in most failures. Gotten allot of water around under the dash?

When the car is near 12,000km since the last service,the indicator will turn yellow,if it exeeds 12,000km it will turn red.
To clear it switch the ignition on.
Reset service indicator by inserting key or another similar object of the same size into the slot below the indicator.
The service lamp will cancel the indicator for the next 12,000km.
I hope this helps you.
