Most newer cars have a service reminder for oil changes and need to have this reminder reset when you change the oil. You can check in your owners manual for the procedure to reset the reminder.

Light on screen says REQ. MAINT.


Could be as easy as your car is due for an oil change (if that hasn't been done within the required interval (check your owners manual). If that is not the problem, I suggest taking it to a mechanic that you trust, that has a computer that he can hook to your car to find out exactly what the problem is........ As it could be quite a few different things

Maint. req. light blinks 10 times after start up?


When a Honda Maint Req light blinks, but then stops, it is telling you to change your oil. If you don't change it, eventually, the maint req light will stay on. Here is how you reset the maint req light: 1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the odometer button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

If that doesn't work, try it this way: p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Verdana}

With the igniition off, press and hold the odometer button, turn the key to the "on" position, but do not start the car. Keep the odometer button down until the oil light begins and ends flashing. Turn the key off, and then start car to see if it worked or not.

1) Turn your key to the on position (dash lights will come on)
2) Push the odometer button until the total miles are displayed and keep holding it.
3) Turn the key Off, and then back ON while holding the odometer button in.Don't let up on the button. You will notice the odometer reading shows dashes and they will sequence off. After they sequence off, the Maint Reqd light will go off. Release the odometer button

I have a Honda 2000 Odyssesy and the maintenance required light comes on and stays on. We recently changed the oil and filter. I do not notice any problems with the runnning of the vehicle. An auto part...


The maint req. light is a mileage counter. It will turn on every 7500 miles after it has been turned off because that is the factory recommended oil change interval. To turn off the light: with key off, push and hold the trip odometer reset button in. While still holding in the button, turn the key to on but not start. Continue holding the button in until the maint. req. light goes out. Turn key to off.

Code P1456: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Control System leakage.
Code P0740: Transmission lock up control system.

the first code can be caused by a loose or non-factory fuel cap or a leak.
The second code indicates the transmission torque converter lock-up solenoid could be faulty.

Clear the codes and drive normally for several days. See if the Check Engine light comes on again. If so, have the codes read out and prepare for some repairs. If the light stays off, you had intermittent faults which occur from time to time and nothing is probably wrong.

Why maint req´d driver in my car lit? what´s it the problem?


Maintenance required light is a reminder to change the oil. if you have had the oil changed within the last 3000 miles its likley the people that did the oil change didnt reset the light, if im not mistaken, to reset that light turn the car to the key on engine off position and hold the odometer button down until the light blinks and goes away

"maint reqd".


That is for oil changes. It come on when the oil change is due.
When you have your oil change done, the lube tech should reset the this light every time.
If you need help resetting the light, let me know.
