Thanks to Rich (Honda Civic). The same procedure applied to CRV 2003.
1) Put the key in the ignition without turning.
2) Press and hold the odomoter reset button while turning the ignition key.
3) Turn the ignition key to the on position where the 'Maint Req' light appears on the instrument panel without starting the car, continuing to hold the reset button.
4) Hold the reset button until the light goes out - approx. 10 seconds.
I tried it, and it worked. This worked for me as well! (Morseman21 - 3-17-2008)
I did it, it also works on Odyssey 2003 (oct '08)
Just to elaborate a little more on the "Maintenance Required" light and why it goes on, here is the information straight from the manual:
Begin Quote "Maintenance Required Indicator-
This indicator reminds you that it is time to take your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance. Refer to the Maintenance Schedules for Normal and Severe Driving Conditions on pages 238-242.
For the first 8,000 miles (12,800 km) after the Maintenance Required Indicator is reset, it will come on for two seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
Between 8,000 miles (12,800 km) and 10,000 miles (16,000 km), this indicator will light for two seconds when you first turn the ignition switch to ON (II), and then flash for ten seconds.
If you exceed 10,000 thousand miles (16,000 km) without having the scheduled maintenance performed, this indicator will remain on as a constant reminder." End Quote.
As long as you are performing routine maintenance such as oil changes including changing the filter, overall engine fluid monitoring (i.e. coolant, brake fluid, clutch fluid, washer fluid, automatic transmission fluid, ect.), tire rotation, visual brake inspection, emergency brake maintenance (tightening it up and visual inspection), air filter changes and so on, there really is no reason to take your car into the dealer to pay large sums of money for work that can be done at home or at a cheaper qualified mechanic.Hope this helps.
This really worked like magic on my 99 Honda Accord. Awesome! thanks guys :)

If you are talking about the maintenance required light, push the odo reset button and hold while turning the ignition to the on position, hold for 10 seconds, do not start the engine. Now if you are talking about the check engine light, take it to the dealer, it's under warranty. What happened they forget to give you an owner's manual. I know you don't have one or you would have just opened it looked this info up.
Take the car to the dealer and have it serviced. The light is for a reason. 1) Turn key to to position II 2) Push and hold odometer reset button 3) Turn key to off position 4) Turn key back on to pos II 5) After 10 - 15 sec light goes off, release reset button 6) Yes, the light is there for a reason - to remind you to perform the required maintenance on your car. It will also indicate trouble. If you reset it and there is still trouble, it will come back on. Take it in for service in that case. This procedure also worked on our 2003 Honda Accord.
