To reset the MAINT REQ'D light, press and hold the select/reset button on the right side of the instrument panel. Turn the ignition on and hold until the light goes out.

This should get rid of the service light.

SOURCE: Maintenance Required light

The light needs to be reset. Usually after an oil change they will reset it for you. Directions for doing yourself>>> turn off the engine, press and hold the select/reset button in the instrument panel then turn the ignition switch on. Hold the button until the indicator resets (approximately ten seconds). Directions from your Honda manual. Hope this helps!

Maint req'd light was lit and do not know what is and how to fix


The '91 & newer models turned the maint, req. light on by a timer in the ECU & the ECU turns it on around 120k miles based on a timer and requires a dealer or shop visit to be reset.But it isnt going to hurt anything by being on.

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.

My Maint Req light is blinking when I turn the car on. What does this mean?


There are manufacturer recomended service/maintence requirements at
certain mileage intervals. These are programed into the cars computer.
The light is to remind you, that you have reached or close to one of these intervals. There should be a maint. schedule with the owners
manual, that describes the type of service required, at your mileage.
If you just want to turn off the light. Stop by any major parts store and
they will clear the code. Usually for free. Hope this helps.

Maint req light flashes when i turn on my 2005 honda C.R.V. It has been serviced today by independant garage.


They must have forgotten to reset the light. If you take a look in the service manual it should tell you how to reset it. With most hondas you simply hold the trip reset button and turn the ignition on. Continue holding the trip reset button until the light turns off.

"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.
