turn the key to activate the power but not start the ignition, do this a handfull of times. The check engine light should blink a specific number of times, this can be referenced to identify the problem, after this happens the light should turn off until you have another problem!

There's a difference between the "check engine" light and the "engine maintenance required" light (aka "Emission Maintenance Reminder" or EMR light). The EMR light is strickly a reminder that emission system maintenance is due. This includes the EGR valve, PCV valve, & Oxygen sensor. It is program to light at approximately 60,000, 82,500, & 120,000 miles. Because its activated by mileage, it does not necessarily mean that something has malfuction. Unfortunately, the only way to reset it is by using a diagnostic scan tool. Of course, you could always remove the bulb.

How do you turn off the maintenance required light on a 1991 Accord?

Listed in your owner's manual. Next to the maintenance required light, you should see a small slot with a button in it. Stick your ignition key into the slot and hold it in for about 10 seconds. When you start your car, the light should be green, indicating that it has been reset. The maintenance light will turn orange automatically the next time that the mileage reaches one of Honda's recommended maintenance intervals.

What does it mean when the maintenance light of a 1991 Honda Accord is on?

The maintenance light on all early model hondas have three stages. Green, orange and then red. This light only serves as a reminder to change your oil, air filter and to do other routine maintenance. If you were to service the vehicle and not reset the light it would just stay on. It changes color by miles. It's green when it is reset and as you drive it will eventually change to orange and then red regardless of any services done to the vehicle. To reset look on the instrument panel for a slot near the light and insert your key this will change it back to green.

How do you reset the maintenance light on 1991 Jeep Wrangler 4.0L?

You must use the DRB II connector and a computer that has EMR reset capabilities. the connector is close to the master cylinder. good luck. The 1991 Wrangler may be reset by removing the POSITIVE connection from the battery and grounding it to the negative connection or disconnecting the POSITIVE terminal for 30 minutes. (either way will drain the capicitors in the electrical system)

How do you reset the maintenance required light on a 1991 Dodge Dakota?

The Emission Maintenance Reminder System (EMR) is incorporated into the engine Powertrain Control Module (PCM). On 1989 to 1995 models, the Chrysler Diagnosis Read-Out Box II (DRB II) is required to reset the EMR. If you have an 88 keep serching b/c the solution is much easier. I discovered this answer on a recent search (Mar2008), but print it and take it to the mechanic with you. After years of ignoring my light, my local 5 STAR service people said they didn't know jack about an "old" Dakota. I took three of their stars when I left!
