Default HOW TO: Turn off a Flashing Maintenance Req'd light.

So simple, that us long-time owners have forgotten about it. But for the Integra n00bs who see this flashing, don't fret. It's easy as 1-2-3 to shuts it off.

What is it?
It's a dummy light designed to go off after certain mileage intervals for "service." This service is an oil change. It's blinking in your face for 10 seconds after starting your car.

How do I turn it off?
Like resetting a circuit breaker in your house:
-Turn the ignition key to "ON," the position before you turn to crank the motor - do not start the car
-Under the panel above your right leg, there is a small box attached to the inside of this panel.
-Reach under and feel for a small, square button.
-Push and hold this button.
-On the gauge cluster, the "MAINT REQ'D" light will illuminate then turn off.
-Release the button, turn the key to the "OFF" position, then start her up. Viola! No more idiot light!

Can I prevent it from coming on again?
You sure can. That same box with the reset button has a harness connected to the top of it. If you pull this harness, the light will not come on anymore.

Default HOW TO: Correct Surging / Erratic Idle Speed

As originally posted by JimBlake:

Surging Idle

There's tons of postings about "MY IDLE GOES UP & DOWN! WHAT DO I DO?" It's tempting to yell & scream & tell people to search, but hopefully this will be more useful than flaming...

Here's what to check:

Look for (& fix) vacuum leaks. They can be anywhere...

Get ALL the air out of the cooling system. Some years have a bleeder screw near the upper radiator hose. You also have to squeeze the hoses & work the air over to the radiator cap. Air likes to hang out in the heater core too, so have the temperature slider set to full-hot when you do anything.

Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) is bolted on the back of the intake manifold. Clean it out with throttlebody cleaner.

Fast-Idle Thermo-Valve (FITV) is mounted under the throttlebody (up thru '95). If your car has it, clean it out too. Sometimes it's guts get loose, so you can drain some coolant & open up the cover. Tighten & put it all back. (Beginning in '96 the FITV's job was built into the IACV.)

After everything else is fixed, set the base idle speed like this.
- Warm up the engine & turn off ALL accessory loads.
- Unplug the elecrical plug from the IACV, hold the revs up so it doesn't stall. Gently let it drop to idle.
- Adjust the idle screw (above the TB bore) to get 480 rpm.
- Turn off the engine, plug in the IACV, pull the ECU fuse or battery cables to reset the ECU.
- Start the engine & let it idle for several minutes without touching the throttle.
