The maintenance light automatically starts flashing when you reach a certain mileage. It does not mean that you need to do maintenance (although scheduled maintenance is recommended), it is just a reminder. Additionally, it is a reminder to change your oil. If you reset it each time you change you oil, then supposedly based on how you drive it the car will tell you to when to change the oil.

To reset your maintenance light, follow this procedure

Odometer reset button procedure # Turn the key to the II position (but not to III, or START) # Turn the key to the 0 (OFF) position, then push -- and hold -- the trip odometer reset button

# Turn the key back to the II position, while still holding the button # After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off # Release button and turn key to 0. (source: http:/www.tegger.com/hondafaq/maintenance-reqd-light.html )

Get your oil changed, and have the service reminder reset.

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 is a reminder to do preventative maintenance. It comes on after a required number of mules. Does not mean that there is a problem wirh the vehicle. You can use a key to push in the slots to reset to green.

There is a small black slot on the left of the guage cluster. Put your car key in there, it should reset the light!

With the engine and ignition off push and hold in the odometer reset button. While holding that button in, turn on the ignition but do not start the engine. After about 5 seconds the light will go off and the maintenance required light will have been reset.

The wrench light in a Honda Accord means that the vehicle needs maintenance soon. It usually means that you are over your recommended mileage interval for service and that it is time for an oil change and other similar maintenance procedures.

User Avatar

It normally means you need to change the oil/filter. But it can mean other regularly scheduled maintenance is required. Your owners manual will list the maintenance schedule.

Press and hold the odometer reset button while at the same time turning the ignition switch to on. Do not start the engine. After around 5 seconds the maintenance required light will go out.

Usually it is pre programmed for oil changes and routine maintenance.

User Avatar

It most often means you need to change the oil and filter. Referred to your owners manual for the maintenance schedule of what needs to be done at the mileage on your vehicle now.

User Avatar

It means there is maintenance that needs to be performed based on the mileage on the odometer. It can be nothing more than it needs an oil/filter change but it can also mean it needs a new cam belt or some other maintenance. Your owner's manual outlines exactly what needs to be done at the mileage now on your Accord. Neglect the required maintenance at your own peril.

Maintenance required. Can mean it needs an oil/filter change or can mean something else. Refer to your owners manual scheduled maintenance guide to see what is needed.

User Avatar

There are several reasons this could occur. The first option would be that the oil is low or perhaps the transmission fluid is low.

It means that regular maintenance is due at the mileage on the car. Look in your owner's manual to see what maintenance is needed. Can be nothing more than an oil/filter change.
