It means is that you are near or at the mileage for a scheduled service. For example around 10000, 30000, 50000...etc. You can easily reset it yourself: Turn the car off...with your left hand hold in the Trip Meter Button and start the car with your right hand. Keep holding in the button until the light goes off and you will be good to go! I got that trick from the Honda Dealership where I bought my car, and it does work.

Your owner's manual discusses this very light. The light indicates that regular scheduled maintenance is required. Look in your owner's manual for the description of what maintenance items need to be addressed, and how to reset the light.

It means you need to take it to a service station and have someone to do a diagnostic.

The maintenance required light only goes on after 7,500 miles since last 'maintenance'. The maintence required light will not turn off by replacing or changing anything, the only way to turn it off is by putting your key in the key slot next to the light.

It requires service: Either it needs to go in for oil change and similar normal maintenance or there is something gone wrong.

If a Honda Civic brake light is on then the system needs to be checked. The pads may be low and require maintenance to be safely operable.

This same thing happened to me. Use the ignition key and push the button(indent) in beside it.

The Maintenance Required Light is not the same as the Check Engine Light. The Maintenance Required Light is telling you that there is scheduled maintenance that needs to be performed. It may mean it needs an oil/filter change. To find out what needs to be done look at the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual.

It means that there is some sort of maintenance required - you'd need to pull codes to determine exactly what. Performing the required maintenance successfully should shut the light off.

The maintenance light on a 1995 Honda Civic can be reset by a few ways. First the battery can be disconnected for at least 5 seconds. Doing so resets everything. The fuse for the ECU can also be removed to just reset the computer solely.

In my experience with modern cars you don't. The mechanics set it and it will be reset when you take it in.

You are supposed to get a 30,000 mile maintenance. So, if you have not, you are past due. Also, make sure the servicer resets the sansor so that the car will recognize that services were performed.

You can't reset that light...there is no such thing as a 2002 Honda Element...they didn't come out until 2003.

To let you know that some type of schedueled maintenance is due. Check the owner's manual or call a Honda Dealer.
