PRESS AND HOLD IN THE TRIPOMETER RESET BUTTON. WITH IT IN, TURN THE KEY TO THE ON POSITION WITHOUT STARTING THE ENGINE. THE DISPLAY WILL COUNT DOWN IN HASH MARKS FROM 6 TO 0. AFTER IT REACHES 0 RELEASE THE TRIPOMETER RESET, TURN THE KEY TO THE OFF POSITION. ONCE YOU RESTART THE LIGHT SHOULD BE OFF.

this light can come on even thought service is not actually due. if the service was performed and the light was not on at the time, sometimes you cannot reset them if they are not actually lit, or 99% of the time the technician forgets if the light was not on. stop by your shop and they can reset it for you in just a few moments, and for no charge. good luck!

The maintence required light came on and flashed when I started the car up. I talked to someone and they said that was just an oil change signal. I knew I had just changed the oil, so ignored it. Now it is...


One can ignore it or reset it as it will go on after so many miles or over time.
It doesn't sense a problem with the oil, it just measures intervals of miles or time to determine that maintenance is recommended.

It has to be manually reset.

Recently the Maintenance Required light comes on and blinks for a couple of minutes, then goes off. We put new brakes on the front and we changed the oil and I thought the light would stop, but it's still...


the car is telling you that the oil needs to be changed/ the milage has reached the limit for needing to be changed. even if you have changed the oil it will still warn you after 7500 miles to change the oil. To make the light go off, press and hold the knob the resets your milage for 15 secs then turn the key to the on position(dont start the car) then continue to hold the knob in for about 30 secs, release, turn the car off, wait 5 secs, turn car to on position, then back off the start the car it should clear the maintence light.

Maintence light blinking 7 times, what does that mean?


Hello.

Your Maintnance Light is blinking because your vehicle is nearing its recommended oil change interval.

The Light blinks when you reach 4,500 miles, and will come on, and remain on steady, after 5,000 miles,

If you had your oil changed recently, your light was not reset. Changing the oil does not reset the light. It must be manually reset, via a button on the dash; this procedure is explained in your owner's manual

Maintence required on red


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.
