      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.

    I changed my camry 2004 engine oil and filter and after driving for about 500km the maintenance required light came on. What is the cause please

    You need to reset the maintenance reminder manually after you change the oil. You can do this by holding in the trip reset button and turning the key to the run position. keep holding the button down. the odometer should switch to all dashes and then the dashes will start to disapear. once there all gone it has been reset. Sometimes the trip odometer needs to be on a sometimes it needs to be on b. Your owners manual will have further instructions if you need then.

    What does the "maintenance required" light mean and how do you reset it on a 2004 toyota solara?

    Maintenance light is turned on when your vehicle is due for service. It is set to turn on at a certain mileage. At minimum, you need an oil change service and what ever is required at your mileage interval. Resetting the light is as simple as, Ignition Key in the off position, press and hold the odometer button, Turn the ignition key on and continue to hold the odometer button for at least ten seconds. If properly done, you will see dashes across your odometer as you hold the button, until the odometer reading reappears. Hope this helps. Please leave feedback.

    Yellow/gold wrench is illuminated on dash board

    Please note:

    Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

    Owner's Manual page 193-197.

    Resetting the Engine Oil Life

    Your dealer will reset the display
    after completing the required
    maintenance service. You will see
    ‘‘OIL LIFE 100 %’’ on the odometer/
    trip meter display the next time you
    turn the ignition switch to the ON
    (II) position.

    If maintenance service is done by
    someone other than your dealer,
    reset the maintenance minder as

    1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
    (II) position.

    2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
    the engine oil life indicator is

    3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
    more than 10 seconds. The engine
    oil life indicator and the
    maintenance item code(s) will

    4. Press the Select/Reset knob for
    more than 5 seconds. The
    maintenance items code(s) will
    disappear, and the engine oil life
    will reset to ‘‘100.’’

    Important Maintenance

    If you have the required service
    done but do not reset the display, or
    reset the display without doing the
    service, the system will not show the
    proper maintenance intervals. This
    can lead to seriousmechanical
    problems because you will no longer
    have an accurate record of when
    maintenance is needed.
    Your authorized Honda dealer
    knows your vehicle best and can
    provide competent, efficient service.
    However, service at a dealer is not
    mandatory to keep your warranties
    in effect. Maintenance may be done
    by any qualified service facility or
    person who is skilled in this type of
    automotive service. Make sure to
    have the service facility or person
    reset the display as previously
    described. Keep all receipts as proof
    of completion, and have the person
    who does the work fill out the
    maintenance record. Check your
    warranty booklet for more

    Remove Oil maintenance required message on 2008 Toyota Highlander

    This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:

    Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

    Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

    Turn the key OFF.

    Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
    DO not release it.

    Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

    Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

    Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

    This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

    Hope this helps! Thanks for choosing FixYa!
