When was the engine oil last changed? This sounds like it is a service reminder light to inform you that the vehicle is due for a service. If was recently serviced it will just need resetting.

What is a Wrench light indicator in my 2008 honda Civic


The wrench light indicator is a reminder that you are do for your next service(For example:oil change, air filter change, trans fluid change and so on) base on the miles on your car. A lot of people just get a oil change and have the light reset. If you read your car manual book it will tell you what service you need to do. Note: light come on every 3,000 miles and you can reset any time you want.
How to reset light:
1.with headlight off, turn the key on. Do not start the car.
2. On the left side of th dash below the heat vent there is a button that says "sel reset". push that button until you see "oil life" and a percent on the gauge display screen.
3.Now while on the oil life display, push and hold the "sel reset" button until screen start to flash. you might have to hold for 45sec.
4.when the screen start flashing, release button and hold it down again. might have to hold for about 45sec.

if you did it right the percent should go up to 100% and the wrench light should go out.

Yellow/gold wrench light 2006 honda accord is still on after an oil change . How do I reset it?


Is the oil life low? If so scroll up the oil life and hold down the RESET knob until it goes out. If the oil life is high, then service is needed.

Please note:

Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/om/AC0606/AC0606O00192A.pdf

Owner's Manual page 193-197.

Resetting the Engine Oil Life
Indicator

Your dealer will reset the display
after completing the required
maintenance service. You will see
‘‘OIL LIFE 100 %’’ on the odometer/
trip meter display the next time you
turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

If maintenance service is done by
someone other than your dealer,
reset the maintenance minder as
follows:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
the engine oil life indicator is
displayed.

3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 10 seconds. The engine
oil life indicator and the
maintenance item code(s) will
blink.

4. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 5 seconds. The
maintenance items code(s) will
disappear, and the engine oil life
will reset to ‘‘100.’’

Important Maintenance
Precautions

If you have the required service
done but do not reset the display, or
reset the display without doing the
service, the system will not show the
proper maintenance intervals. This
can lead to seriousmechanical
problems because you will no longer
have an accurate record of when
maintenance is needed.
Your authorized Honda dealer
knows your vehicle best and can
provide competent, efficient service.
However, service at a dealer is not
mandatory to keep your warranties
in effect. Maintenance may be done
by any qualified service facility or
person who is skilled in this type of
automotive service. Make sure to
have the service facility or person
reset the display as previously
described. Keep all receipts as proof
of completion, and have the person
who does the work fill out the
maintenance record. Check your
warranty booklet for more
information.

What is the recommended maintenance sahedule for a 2009 Honda CRV? Do you wait for the wrench light to come on or should it go by miles driven?? Thanks


Its pretty simple. Watch your oil life on your car. When it drops to 15% it is time to make an appointment with your dealer. The oil life calculates how long the oil will do its job properly based on how you drive. There is no "recommended maintenance schedule" on new honda's.

The car actually tells the dealer what needs to be done in the form of computer codes A and B and numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. When you bring it in, they will pull up any upcoming service codes and tell you what needs to be done. So just follow the oil life and try to avoid letting it go to 0%.

Good luck

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

Oil light


you need to reset the oil life monitior in the cluster. look in your owners manual for "oil life monitor reset". I believe on that vehicle you have to turn the ignition on and depress the gas pedal 3 times rapidly within 5 seconds of turning the key to the "on" not the start position. the light will flash 5 times and it is reset. if you have your oil changed by a business then they should reset it for your for free.
