If you take your civic into a Honda dealer for regular maintenance they should reset it for you. Even most Lube shops do as well. But if you do your own vehicle services like oil changes (which is what that light is there for) then here's how you can reset it.
put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
To fix your problem, you have to turn the steering wheel either to the left or right as much as you can, then try to turn the key in the ignition. When the steering wheel locks, the key won't turn. By manually holding the steering wheel out of the lock position, the key will turn again and you're steering column will be back to normal. Also try holding the brake pedal down and turning the key and steering wheel at the same time
First try another key if you have one. Second insert the key and while slightly turning it wiggle the key in a upward & downward motion. Often this will allow the key to turn. What you need to do to correct the problem (provided your key is not the problem) is to replace the ignition switch tumbler. It sounds like you only need the tumbler and not the entire switch which would include the steering wheel lock pin.

im not sure what you mean by a bypass, you can always just not use the remotes and go into the body control computer and turn off keyless entry

If you only have one remote, turn ignition to off or don't touch anything. if you have 2+ remotes, go to 13: 13) lock on each transmitter that you need to program
