The CHeck engine light (ak aCEL), the service engine soon light
or
the oil change light.
the operators guide tells what to do.
for the oil change it tells you, change oil, the reset lamp with cluster button pushing, all cars. newer have this .

if the CEL is glowing running, that means the ENGINE brain,
EFI, sees gross errors. that means it needs to be repaired,
and cleared with a scan tool..

is your operators guide missing, ?

Take it to a mechanic and ask them to reset the ODC, or purchase an ODC reader that has reset capabilities.

Maintenance required light is on


If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.

  1. put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
  2. press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
  3. while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
  4. As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
  5. Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
That should do it. Hope this helps

Tip

Civic, Prelude, and Acura (Honda) Integra maintenance light reset.


On the typical Honda gauge layout, there is a small, rectangular, recessed button directly to the left of the "Maintenance Required" light. Using a key, you can press this button in, With the key off, hold down the trip meter reset button. turn the key on and continue holding the reset button in until the maintenance light goes off, about 10 seconds. which will cause the light to turn green. The maintenance light (at least on Civic) will come on about every 4000 miles if not reset (for oil changes), and also periodically for other scheduled maintenance.

My maintenance required light came on and stays on. since maintenance required is such a broad subject, i was wondering how i can determine what may be causing this problem is it possible that it's the...


normally if its going to be an O2 sensor,, the check engine light would come on, not the maintenance light, I don't know if your car has 2 different ones, My 2000 civic does though,, normally a maint light comes on if its time for an oil change , etc... rest the light,, heres how you do that you use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.

with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on.

continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go out

when the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.

your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next service

My honda civic si 02, have the lights maintenance required on. i wanna know what can be the problem


If its the maint light, thats what it needs. The owners manual has a chart of what to have done at what mileage. If you have not been following the Maint schedule, then all bets are off, and you wont get the life or mileage from the car it should have. You can turn the light off, but its there to help you maintain the car. To turn it off, hold the trip reset button in and turn the ign key to on, and keep holding the button intil the light goes off. (10 seconds)

Reset maintenance light


If I remember correctly, on the dash you have a select button. Hold the button down then turn the key on, until the maintenance light blinks and goes out. Turn the key off then back on and your light should be out.
