Look in the owner's manual. It has it in there how to reset it. Usually it just has to do with selecting the oil quantity select and holding it down....or cycling the ignition a few times. Check your manual will have it in there.

My maintenace required light turned red. what does it mean and what do I have to do to fix it? I don't want my engine to blow up again.

Insert your ignition key all the way, straight into the slot next to the 'light' on the dash. That will reset the maintenance minder to green, and if you haven't yet maintained the car, do it now. That should keep your engine from blowing up, again.

How do you get the maintenance required light on dash to do out after a routine maintenace tune up

This should work as it works on a Honda Accord. With the ignition off push and hold the odometer reset button while at the same time turning the ignition to the on position without starting the engine. After 5 seconds the light will reset.

Maintenance light is blinking for a while in 2005 honda accord

To reset your light do the following:

1-Push maintence reminder button in and hold it in. (thats the button near the speedo on the insturment cluster)
2-Turn the ignition to the on position while holding button in.
3-Wait several seconds until the light goes out, then let go of the button.
It is now reset

Now this is the maintaince light and not the check engine light correct? If then just follow above and do that.

Also if you don't use Fram oil filters you can go 5000miles on your oil and be safe. Even honda says you can do 7000miles but 5000 gives you a buffer if you need to go over.
