Not sure I believe you use the same button that you use to change your odometer to trip odometer. When you are on trip odometer you hold that button in to reset it to zero. Do the same thing when it is not in trip odometer mode and I believe that will do the reset you are looking for. If you have your manual it should give you this information.

Simple way to check if anything goes wrong is to go to Autozone store (if you are in US) and scan for trouble codes (if there are any of them). They do it free of charge. If you get any codes you can get the explanation of them here

Use a narrow object(like tip of a pen) and push the 'red' build-in button around the instrument panel and the button will turn back to green and the maintenance required light will go off.

Maintenance required light is on


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.

  1. put your key in the ignition but do NOT turn it.
  2. press and hold the Odometer/Trip button.
  3. while holding the Odometer/Trip button, turn the key to the ON position but do NOT start the engine.
  4. As you hold the Odometer/Trip button, after about 10-15 seconds the Maintenance required light should turn itself off.
  5. Once the Maintenance required light is off, turn the key into the off position then release the Odometer/Trip button.
That should do it. Hope this helps

Tip

Civic, Prelude, and Acura (Honda) Integra maintenance light reset.


On the typical Honda gauge layout, there is a small, rectangular, recessed button directly to the left of the "Maintenance Required" light. Using a key, you can press this button in, With the key off, hold down the trip meter reset button. turn the key on and continue holding the reset button in until the maintenance light goes off, about 10 seconds. which will cause the light to turn green. The maintenance light (at least on Civic) will come on about every 4000 miles if not reset (for oil changes), and also periodically for other scheduled maintenance.

My maintenance required light came on and stays on. since maintenance required is such a broad subject, i was wondering how i can determine what may be causing this problem is it possible that it's the...


normally if its going to be an O2 sensor,, the check engine light would come on, not the maintenance light, I don't know if your car has 2 different ones, My 2000 civic does though,, normally a maint light comes on if its time for an oil change , etc... rest the light,, heres how you do that you use the button that resets your trip odometer to reset the maintenance light.

with the key in the ignition but not turned on, hold the trip reset button in with one hand. then, while holding the button in, turn the ignition key to the ON position so that the lights on the dash come on.

continue to hold the reset button in and watch the maintenance light. it will take about 15 seconds for the light to go out

when the light goes out, turn the ignition key OFF and then release the trip reset button.

your light will be reset and come on in about another 5000 miles to remind you of the next service

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help

      Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.

    1994 honda accord maintenance required light is on. have not seen it on before.


    maintenance required lights in hondas come on at set intervals set by the factory. usually it just mean an oil change, but no one usually goes by the light. under the dash behind the plastic where your legs are there should be a little button. feel around for it, hold the button in and turn your key on until the light goes off. Or any honda dealer will do it for you and show you how to do it the first time. No worries
