It is all in the owners manual. Get it out and read it if you can read....

The maintenance light comes on at (I believe) 10,000 km for us up here. The
'how do I do this' to your vehicle answers, are in the Owners Manual, as
well as other interesting points and information.

Maintenance required means "oil change due" If its just coming on now, I
would guess that you had the dealer do an oil change at around 4,000 miles
and you've been doing them yourself ever since?

The procedure varies from model to model, but you will find directions on
how to reset the light in the owner's manual.

Its probably a reminder for an oil change. It comes on in increments of 3750
miles. I had a1998 Accord and if I remember correctly you press and hold the
trip-meter reset button down before turning the key to the on position.
Keep the button depressed until lamp goes out.
If this doesn't work read the owners manual - maintenance section.

You HAD to give it away.

Seriously, how hard is it to read the owner's manual? The procedure is
described in there for any type of car.

It takes less time to look it up in the Owners Manual, than it does to post
a question here and then read what it says in the Owners Manual. But,
now-a-days, most people are to lazy to do anything for themselves. It's a
wonder these people even purchase cars, because then they have to drive the
cars, themselves.

UUhhh, maybe he doesn't HAVE the owners manual. It never ceases to amaze
me...someone comes on here looking for a little help, and all they get are a
bunch of smart-ass answers!! By the way, MJC is right on how to clear it.

Yes, he does.

It never ceases to amaze me, and others here, when someone comes here
asking questions about his brand new car (like, "when should I change
the oil," or "I've had it for 2 days and the check engine light is on,
can anyone help tell me what the problem is so I can fix it") and
expects to be SPOON FED the answers that are PLAINLY in his owner's
manual.
