Default 98 Passport check engine light ??

My son is about to buy a 98 passport. The check engine light is on and
the salesman told him that when the oil was changed that they didn't
reset the oil light. I don't have any experience with Honda's but this
doesn't sound right to me.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Two things:

1. Passport is actually an Isuzu Rodeo with Honda badges. So the lights
might not be the same as a real Honda.

2. On a Honda, there is both a check-engine light and a
maintenance-required light. If the check-engine light is on, make them fix
it before you give them any money. If it is a maintenance-required light,
it doesn't mean anything and there will be instructions on the owner's
manual to reset it.

I have a '95 Passport and the manual says the "Check Engine" light
indicates a problem with the engine emission control system. I
wouldn't buy the vehicle with that light on.

Yup - the light is required by the OBD II emission control spec. It sure
isn't being caused by the oil change - that would be the "maintenance
required" light. Something is wrong and I believe the seller is required (by
federal air quality regulations) to correct it before the vehicle can be
sold.

Don't buy it. I have a Passport 97, and I will not recomend this truck.

1. It is not Honda but Isuzu. And Isuzu SUV are full of problems, and
its parts are extremely expensive.

2. My Passport 97 had many many problems, it is too long the list, but
it is not my self, all Isuzu owners will certify this. ABS, heating
blower, alternator, compressor, heads (very very expensive to fix). It
is not a real Honda.

3. Isuzu is almost out of business in the us, and this is because of
the poor quality.

4. Research for Isuzu Rodeo, which is identical to the Passport, and
you will see. Read the consumer reports, what people say about this
vehicle.

5. I do not understand how Honda sells this SUV from Isuzu, it destroys
the good reputation of Honda.
