Question about 2005 Honda Element
My problem is how to turn off the maintenance required light on my car.
Press the odometer button when starting the engine. The light will go off.

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.

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.
Insert the key in the ignition.
Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.
Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.
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.
Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.
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.
