Maintenance Required Light flashes 5 times

Hi,

My 2003 Honda Pilot Maintenance Required Light flashes 5 times before I start it. Also on the highway when driving at approx. 50-60 mph it has a dead spot, (i.e. the engine looses power).

The battery recently died and I had to get it jumped. The owners manual says that after the battery is replaced, it has to be driven for 20mins at 50mph and some other jazz- to reset the computer.

Is there a quicker way to fix this problem?

thanks in advance!

I have the same problem and I read in the user manual that it flashes as a reminder to get oil changed. Depending on how many miles between changes it flashes different amount of times. Manual tells how to reset the gauge. Might be more than that but check your book first.

Check engine means you have to check your engine and open your trunk first and then check the engine. Once you open and check the engine and check if the engine lights still on. it should disappear in no time. Thanks for the time

2003 Honda pilot stopped running at 80 mph on


And you want us to guess at what?

Obviously you towed it to a dealer or
repair shop & will be hearing from them

Only doing some testing will give you some idea
of the required repairs

Timing Belt Break ?

We can only point you in some direction, if you give us
test results or something you need to know

If you never work on vehicles, then a repair shop
will answer your questions

My daughter's '97 Honda Accord has a "maintenance required" light on the dash that's in the red. Does this mean there's something serious wrong? Or just scheduled maintenance is overdue? The milage is...


It just means it time to change your oil. If it has been changed recently and you just want to shut your light off just hold down the trip reset button. While holding it down turn the ignition on but do not start the engine. keep holding the button down for approx. 10 secs. the light should start flashing and then go out. then release the trip reset button and turn the ignition off. and the light will be reset.
