With your key in the "on" position but your "not" running. Disconnect the positive battery cable and leave off for a few minutes. Turn the key off at the end of the wait and plug the battery back in. If the code is cleared the light should be reset. If it comes back on, the trouble is still there.
There is another way of course... I've seen the worker at the Honda dealership use the trip/arrows and other buttons on the instrument panel to read the code and to turn off the maint. req. light on my S2000. He said that it is timed to go off when the next oil change is required.
Does anybody know how to do this without disconnecting the battery?
Thanks much! T
Ahhh I found it, from http://www.photoslave.com/journal/auto/s2000_maint.html : To reset the MAINTENANCE REQUIRED light: - Have key inserted in ignition but in the OFF or LOCKED position. - Push and hold the trip reset button on the right bottom corner of your gauge clutster. - Turn key to full ON position and continue holding the button till the light goes off.

Fuse/ Dimmer Switch/ Illumination switch/ or just a new cluster all on its own. depends on what broke
it needs to be serviced
Use your car key and insert into the slot next to the Maintenance Required notification. It should get reset from red to green.
It will fit as long as you are using a cluster from a Civic with the same trim level. For example, if you have a 2001 Civic EX with a 5-Speed, you need a cluster from a 2001-2003 Civic EX with a 5-Speed.
How do u put the spring back in for the Change cubby
Your owner's manual discusses this very light. The light indicates that regular scheduled maintenance is required. Look in your owner's manual for the description of what maintenance items need to be addressed, and how to reset the light.
It means you need to take it to a service station and have someone to do a diagnostic.
It may mean a scheduled maintenance is required, which at the minimum is an oil change. However, it can also mean more intensive maintenance is required, such as coolant flush/replace, transmission flush/replace, brake flush/replace, a tuneup (replace hoses, spark plugs, etc.).
It requires service: Either it needs to go in for oil change and similar normal maintenance or there is something gone wrong.
The maintenance required light only goes on after 7,500 miles since last 'maintenance'. The maintence required light will not turn off by replacing or changing anything, the only way to turn it off is by putting your key in the key slot next to the light.
Yes it can.
Here is a link that walks you through turning off the maintenance required light step by step, I'm totally not car knowledgeable and did it on my on in two minutes! http://www.wikihow.com/Turn-off-the-%22Maint-Req%22-Light-on-a-2001-Honda-Civic
Yes you can.
if the Honda civic dx is a 92-95 then yes.
For the first 100.000 miles only fluids have to be changed on a stock 2007 civic si. Obviously if you are moding your engine heavily other upgrades are required.
Scheduled maintenance for a 2003 Honda Civic applies to the type of service needed to keep the car running healthy. Oil changes are an example of scheduled maintenance.
The maintenance required light comes on aeveryfew thousand miles. After you get an oil change the mechanic is supposed to reset that for you. I would take it back and have it done, or google it and do it yourself.
reset switch by Honda or acura part number 07paz-oo10100
No, reason being that the glusters are completely different in size and connectors.
No different dashboards and cluster wiring are involved. Honda also did not make an SI in 1991 and the car model and type is nearly completely different.
Yes it can with rewiring the blue and green harness plug pins.
This same thing happened to me. Use the ignition key and push the button(indent) in beside it.
You are supposed to get a 30,000 mile maintenance. So, if you have not, you are past due. Also, make sure the servicer resets the sansor so that the car will recognize that services were performed.
