Theres no problem, its set to come on every7500 miles just to remind you to do the service, like oil changes etc, all you do is make sure mileage is showing in display, then turn key off, then push the button that shows the trip mileage hold that button in then turn key on but dont start truck make sure dash lights come on like when starting,okay continue to hold button may take 15 -25 seconds until you see maint light go off, done.hope this helps.

MAINTENANCE LIGHT IS ON AT 60000 MILES. WHAT MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM<


The light is telling you that it is time to perform regular maintainance on the vehicle. If it is not reset even after an oil change, after 10,000 miles it will stay on after the vehicle is started and remain on until it is reset. I would suggest getting any required maintainence done on the vehicle but you can reset the light yourself if you want. The way to do it is turn the ignition switch to the off position, engine not running. Push and hold the select/reset button to the right of the speedo in the instrument cluster (see arrow in picture below) and hold. While keeping pressed in, turn the key to the "on" position (not starting the car). Remain holding the button down for about ten seconds or until the light goes off. That should reset the maintanence required light for you and gives you 10,000 mile more until it does it again. I hope this helps and good luck.

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help


    • 1

      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.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      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.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      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.
