You get an oil change and they will reset the light or you change the oil and filter yourself and read the owners manual it tells you how to reset the light hope this helps

I have 2007 honda civic and need to reset the service light?


  1. Edit Step 15 ¶ When it's time to change the oilin your Civic, the maintenance light (orange wrench) will appear on your dash, as well as a B1 message, showing an oil life of 15% or less. To reset the Oil Life % gauge, press and hold the SEL/RESET button for about 10 seconds until the Oil Life message begins to flash.

Had oil changed at new place. 2 days later check engine light came on. Hard time starting after I get gas. Checked oil light in car and says I only have 15% oil life left. Could this all be related?


as to 15 % left on oil life they forgot to reset -check oil level and filter [leak]-look under vehicle where oil pan is and check o2 sensors and wiring worker could have hit a wire or connector -have code checked can be 100s of reasons for code most auto stores offer this service for free and if its something like a damaged sensor or wiring in the area the shop was working go back and tell them about it

What is 2B indicator light odyssey 2006


This is alerting you to a need for the 2B service and that is likely an oil and filter change, the 15% means you have that much oil life left before a change of oil is needed.

What does it mean when the wrench pops up and the message pops up that says oil life 15% on a 2007 Honda Accord SE sedan?


It is probably telling you that the oil needs changing soon. The wrench is telling you it needs service and the 15% is probably stating you have 15% of life in the oil left, with 0% being the oil has to be changed. Most newer cars recommend the oil is changed every 3000 mi or 3 mo.

Spanner light on


My first guess would be that maybe your fuel filter needs replacing and that is causing the spanner light... as for the Oil Life the moment you get a oil change it says 100 % but with use it keeps going down... 15% means its time for an Oil Change... Bad Oil Life is very bad for the engine... As for the engine light there could be many reasons to that like obsruction in fuel canister a fault in Powertrain Control Module... get to a dealership n get an assesment n then post here ;-)

This is what helps the tech inspect your car. B Means to replace oil and oil filter. And inspect certain things on the vehical.

Sub systems

To reset the Maintenance Minder System (your oil life) Make sure the oil life is displayed
