There are two reasons the light can come on. 1) Your car has gone the preset amount of miles and the light has come on automatically to inform you the car should now be looked over by a mechanic for any problems and the light re-set. 2) Your car has a problem and the light has come on to inform you it's sick and needs to be fixed. Either way, you have to take it to a mechanic to find out. He can shut off your light.

It means that it is time for regular scheduled maintenance to be performed. Normally this means to change the oil, but can be something else, depending on the mileage on your Honda.

If you do not have one, then reply with your mileage and engine size, and I will tell you what needs to be done. I own a 2004 Accord myself. You can also go to the Honda website and sign up as an Owner. There you can find all you need. Reply if you need more help. BTW, to reset the light, turn the ignition off, push and hold the odometer reset button while at the same time turning the ignition on but not starting the engine. In about 5 seconds the light will reset.
