Question about 1998 Honda Accord
When I turn my car on the Maintenance Required light blinks until I put it into gear. What could the problem be?
Some cars use this to get you to the dealer. Try disconnecting the battery for about 20 minutes and see if the light comes back.Sometimes this will reset the lights timer. If it returns, call a larger auto parts store and ask if they have the code reading computer for your year and model of car. Its usually a free service.That can tell you if you have a true problem.
I hope this helps you.

Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.
Insert the key in the ignition.
Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.
Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.
Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.
Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.
Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.
