AnswerThe maintenance light is just a reminder for you to maintain your car. All you have to do is reset it. Look near the light; there should be a slot similar to a key slot. Just stick your car key in it. This presses a the reset button and it will go back to green again. Very simple.

If the maintenance required red light came on in a 1995 Honda Accord EX what does this indicate?

It means Maintence is required. Open your owner's manual and it will explain this in detail. If this is the same as on a 1996 Honda Accord then after you get your oil changed if you push the button that is right next to it it will turn green again that is my take on it. Mine turned from yellow to red and I pushed the button and it did nothing but after I changed the oil and pushed the button it turned back to green.

You will have no symptoms that it needs to be changed. Also looking at it will not tell you whether it needs to be changed or not as it may look good and be ready to break. For this reason timing belts are required to be changed at a set mileage or years interval. Referred to your owners manual as to the maintenance schedule on the timing belt. It varies with manufacturer from 60,000 miles 110,000 miles.
