Push the odometer reset button in, hold it, turn on the key. It will flash a few times then go off.

This will reset the Maintenance Required light not the check engine light.

Disconnect the HOT side of the battery for a few seconds--then reconnect(will likely have to reset the radio stations, clock etc.)

This will require reentering radio access code and all radio stations as well. The fourth answer about removing the clock fuse is by far the easiest and quickest.

To turn off the back up light you must go to the engine compartment. Open the fuse box and remove the back up fuse for 30 seconds. That will take out the check engine light.

I have no idea what this will do, but whenever I've had the check engine light on the next answer has been the successful method on the 2000 Honda Accord.

Is this the check engine light blinking upon startup or does it stay on steadily?Pushing the odometer light is for clearing the maintanance schedule warning, this occurs when you're starting up the car that the check engine light blinks 11 times or so, then goes out.

If the check engine light stays on while you put the car into motion, you have to check what triggered it, or if you believe the car is fine, then you remove the fuse from the passenger side fuse box, located under the dash next to the door hinge. When you open the passenger side door, right next to the door hinge you'll see a pannel there, pull it out, remove the fuse for the clock. Leave it out for 15 seconds then place it back.

If in doubt go to AutoZone, Strauss, Pep Boys, Advanced Auto Parts, or if you want to get screwed... go to the dealer. They will have you sitting there for 3 hours, laughing it up in the back, using your car to run and get Pizza and soda, then charge you and arm, leg and your first & second born for just removing a fuse.

This answer was the solution I found that worked. I finally found the cause of the problem after it came on for the third time. ( It came on 3 times over about a 2 year period) Changed the air filter and the problem went away. Everything I read said it would be the oxygen sensor, but it my case it was just a dirty air filter.

look in your owners manuel on how to reset your light because when it comes time for the hondas to have there oil change they sometimes have a button underneith the dash on the drivers side

The owner's manual tells you how to reset the Maintenance Required light not the check engine light.
