CEL, check engine light? if this light is on then theres a problem and the computer needs to be scanned for codes, the codes will tell you where the problem is, there are many autopart stores that will scan it for free and give you the codes. if your problem is the service light then heres how to reset it, turn key on and press the select/reset knob repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed then stop, next push knob again and hold for 10seconds until display oil life blinks then push agian and hold for about 5 sec the item will disappear and your done oil life will go to 100%. good day.

Service light reset

i guess you lost your operators guide already? ?????
maintenance minder, or CEL/SES/MIL?
all are service but all are different.
the wrench light is probably oil change reminder, (?????)
the oil change reset is in the linked oper guide below on page.307
the icon of an engine is the CHECK engine light , or CEL.

all USA cars? and most 2006 plus cars world wide (not china)
reset with a generic scan tool , press button.
there are 3 ways on all cars.
1: scan tool reset. (best of best) $9 tool
2: pull ECU memory fuse, (RTM read the FSM)
3: pull battery neg lug , step on brake pedal , and wait 5min and put back. this kills all power to car.
the operators manual warns you, pulling battery and not reading the radio and NAV sections of same , you will lose the RAD CODE and NAV code, bricking both.
so read the manual in the glove box and back up your 1 or 2 codes
if you have NAV.
there may be a 4 th way some cars have driver reset, silly way.
fidding knobs, and keys and odometer resets, this is car maker
and year,specific , and i ignore it, as i have 8 scan tools.
but read the operators guide on all 3 topics.
ive post the free accord link 25 times. now.
here it is 1 more time.
RTM, read this first then ask questions.

the oper guide shows no way to reset the MIL.
(other than a real scantool) only the FSM covers the other ways.

The maintenance required light is on but no engine or transmission codes show up. What else could be the problem? The oil was just changed. How do I turn the light off?

The maintenance required light does not indicate any problem with the engine or systems like a Check Engine Light (CEL) does. This light is normally a reminder to change the oil. Getting the light to turn off is really easy.

In order, follow these steps:

1. Press and hold down the trip odometer reset button.
2. Turn the key to the on position without starting the engine.
3. Continue to hold down the reset button; The light should go out within 10-15 seconds.

God bless and good luck.

Hi, honda 2006 model showing the sign of a spanner on the screen

I just checked on that one, they said to disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, and the lights will reset? I have heard this but never had to try it. Your spanner is scheduled maint and the oil light you know. And they both should be resettable. Hope this helps.

Spanner light on

My first guess would be that maybe your fuel filter needs replacing and that is causing the spanner light... as for the Oil Life the moment you get a oil change it says 100 % but with use it keeps going down... 15% means its time for an Oil Change... Bad Oil Life is very bad for the engine... As for the engine light there could be many reasons to that like obsruction in fuel canister a fault in Powertrain Control Module... get to a dealership n get an assesment n then post here ;-)

Re-setting service indicator after oil change (no manual)

To reset go to screen where it says the oil life percentage. Have the car off but in the on position. Press the odometer button (same button to get to the oil life screen) in and hold for a while, something like 30 sec or so until it starts flashing...Then let go and push the button again and hold and after like 5 seconds i think it will then display 100% and that's it. Hope this helps you, good luck!

Spanner sign with 500,100 and 0

The spanner or wrench you are seeing indicates how many miles are remaining before your vehicle is supposed to have the oil changed. Normally this is about a 10,000 mile interval and may be reset after an oil change by following this procedure...

Do the following steps:
Move start switch to position "2".
Within the first 4 seconds after moving the start switch to position 2, press the reset button for the trip counter twice within one second. The display for the service request is activated for about 10 seconds.
Within these 10 seconds, move the start switch into position "0". The service request continues to be displayed.
Press the reset button for trip counter and keep it pressed.
Move the start switch into position "2".
Continue to hold the reset button for the trip counter pressed until the signal sounds and the new start distance appears in the display (it takes about 10 seconds).
