Default Maintenace Required Light

Can anyone tell me how to turn off the maintenqce required light on a '99
Accord. It just had the works done for the 120k service by Honda and does
not need maintenance.

Thanks.

I'd love to know as well. I have a '04 Civic. I had the 15,000
maintenance done at Midas, the light went on around 18K. I took it to
Honda yesterday just in case it needed something else. The tech pushed
and held two buttons on the dash, one which seemed to be the
speedometer. The other was further under the steering wheel.

Has HOnDA stopped the practice of including OWNER'S MANUALS with their
vehicles? My '97 and my '98 both came with one . . . . .

I don't believe that's the case. The real problem is with the school system.
Reading from books is not taught any longer.

On my 2002 Honda Civic, the procedure is NOT listed in the owners manual.
Just the generic"take it in" speech.
I did an internet search and did trial and error based on several different
methods.
The method that seemed to work was 1) press and HOLD odometer reset PB and
2) Turn ignition to start. (start the vehicle).
I might have had to do this twice.

Occurred at ~ 32K miles, well after the 30K maintenance. Evidently the
milage trigger was not reset at that time.

That's interesting, the instructions are listed in my Owners Manual for my
2001 Accord.

My instructions state to hold the reset button in, while turning the
ignition switch to the "run" position without starting the engine.

Something didn't work as it was supposed to, that's evident.

P.S. Now the original Poster knows how to reset his Maintenance indicator
without reading his manual, lol.

Evidently no one taught manners either. Simple question, could've been
a simple answer. Most of the questions here could be answered in
owner's manuals. People simply respond out of courtesy.

Turning the key to the "run" position without starting was one of the trial
methods that didn't work for me.
Again, this was not covered in My owners manual, just take it in and have
them check it type stufff.

It's strange how it's mentioned in one Manual and not in the next one.

When the question can be answered much faster by calling a dealership or
looking the answer up in the Owners Manual or even doing a search of
previous topics covered in any newsgroup, it becomes seeing the same
question asked over and over again.

As a matter of fact the same question was asked at the start of this week,
the middle of last week, the end of the week before and so on since I've
been participating/lurking here.

It only takes a few minutes (or days) depending on which method a person
wants to employ to find the answer he (or she) is looking for.
