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.

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.
