If it has a separate "change oil" light, you probably have a problem that needs correcting. The computer turns on one of those lights if there is a problem code that needs to be read and resolved. Borrow, rent or buy a code scanner to find out what's wrong. The computer will tell you everything you need to know.
The 2003 Honda Civic EX does not have a separate "change oil light". The maintenance required light is essentially the oil change interval light. There is another light that has a picture of an engine on it, that is the trouble code light (also serves as dire warning light.)
Check your owners manual for symbol meaning.
To reset the maint light, I am searching for a good answer. A bad answer is to disconnect the battery and touch the two cables together to reset. Its a bad answer because you then have to reprogram the driver side automatic down window and the engine needs to "relearn" its idling characteristics curve. Both procedures are annoying, best to avoid if you can.
HOPE THIS HELPS...ON MY ACURA(TOP-FLIGHT-HONDA) THERE IS A MAINT. REMINDER ON THE DASH THAT TURNS AMBER AT MAINT. INTERVALS. YOU STICK YOUR MAIN IGNITION KEY INTO A RESET SLOT NEAR THE LIGHT, AND THIS TURNS THE LIGHT FROM AMBER BACK TO GREEN. I THINK IT WORKS OFF OF THE ODOMETER ....GOOD LUCK! ..BB
Usually that the car is due for scheduled maintanence like an oil change that's needed every 3 to 5 thousand miles
A scan tool is required.
With the ignition switch in the off position, press and hold the odometer reset button while at the same time turning the ignition to the on position. After a few seconds the maintenance required light will go out.
With the key out of the ignition, press and hold the Select/Reset button for your odometer. While holding in the button (Door closed) put the key in the igition, and turn to on position, wait for 15 seconds, the Maint Req'd light should blink a few times and turn off.

its a gimmik it comes on in milage intervals and all we do is push a button to shut it off
The question doesn't make the most sense, but I think you're asking about the maint reqd light on the dash. Its just there to tell you, "Its time to change your oil." You'll have to check your owners manual to learn how to shut it off.
Honda programs the light to come on at certain mileage intervals. After 5,000 miles, it will blink for 5 seconds upon starting. After 7,500, it stays on until reset. The purpose of the light is to remind you to change your oil. You should perform the reset sequence each time you change your oil. Once reset, it will come on again at the aformentioned intervals.
Just found out that it must be reset at the dealership with a diagnostic computer
More than likely means you need an oil change. Look in your owner's manual and it will tell you what maintenance is required based on your mileage.
To reset the maintenance required light on a 1989 Dodge D50, disconnect the battery. Leave it disconnected for 10 minutes before reconnecting it.

A person can reset the maintenance required light on a 2004 Toyota Sienna by holding down the odometer trip button. A series of zeroes will appear, which indicates that the light has been reset.
If you are talking about the little square light that is next to the maintenance required it is suppose to be green. That is just telling you the oil needs to be changed soon. push in the button on the side of the light with your key to change it back to green.
