It just means it need an oil change and tune up. It does not monitor any engine systems and is only a reminder. Reset it at any time you please unless you actually use it as a reminder for maintenance. It also means that you have drivin your Honda for 5,000 miles :) I own a 1997 Honda Accord and my indicator light just turned RED but it was do to the fact that I slammed into someone and I guess the impact made the light come on but for the most part you can reset the indicator by putting your key in the slot next to the indicator if you have oneOr try to hold down the "Trip" button so it resets and this should work if it doesn't then get an oil change and a tune up and that should work :)

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.

How do you reset the maintenance light on a Honda Accord 1994?

Are you refering to the "Check Engine yellow light" or the little square box near the bottom of the display panel center section? When scheduled maintenance is required the normal green color in the square box will change color to yellow. It is to remind you that the routine maintenance according to the owners manual is due. To change it back to the normal green color "insert you ignition key into the slot below the box and press in" this will reset to the normal position. I have a 1994 Honda accord LX since it was new and is now 14 years old-belive me this is the correct procedure according to the owners manual. Ethan McKay

How do you reset the maintenance indicator of 92' Honda accord that has just been serviced yet still indicate yellow instead of green?

This information can be found in your owner's manual. If you do not have one then get one. Sources are, Dealer, Salvage Yard, E-Bay, and a Google Search. Type in "auto owner's manuals" and you will get several sites that sell them. There is a slot next to the indicator. Stick your Key in it. Stick your key into the slot next to the indicator light and press on the button for about 15 seconds. That should reset it. It will come on again the next time your mileage reaches a recommended service interval (approx 7,500 miles).
