Honda Accord 98-02 and Civic '03: Resetting Maintenance Required Indicator
Thank you, kindly my man!!! I called Honda a year ago and they would've done me the favor of performing a 10K oil change and reset for the low cost of $99.00. I wasn't buying that!!! I have changed the Oil and Filter myself and now a YEAR LATER, you have given me the KEY to resetting that F'ing LAMP.
Thank you greatly, I love the internet!
Thanks a bunch!
I am not a mechanic but can do the simple things like change oil and other minor maintenance but that stupid light was bugging me. The same "trick" worked on my 2004 Civic Si. Thank you so much!!!
Totally works for 2004 Honda Pilot too
Imagine how many people you helped who didn't want to ask because they didn't want to sound stupid.

yeah it should work for most hondas, i think the s2000's are a little bit harder, and some of the odysseys

Thanx a billion
I am so glad that the 7 seconds of flashing maintenance is now gone. I have a question is it set to go off at 5k or 3k I changed the oil and it started going off at some random point since I started changing it myself. All I know is I am glad it worked and also I had to reset my SRS love forums! Thanks Again!!!!
