Default How do i turn off the maintence required light in my honda civic 2005 lx?

I have tried trip button but that does not always work, neither does disconnecting the battery. I know it can be done because they turn it off when I get an oil change if it's on but I don't need one right now so I am not going up there just for this.

It could have another reset, maybe digital, maybe something you press in on dash. If you keep the cable off for 30 seconds it should reset it. Alternatively, you'd have to rent a scan tool from autozone, reset it in the parking lot, and get all your $ back.

1.) Press and hold the 'Trip Reset' button.















2.) Turn key to 'on' position (position II).















3.) Keep button held in until light starts flashing. (usually take around 15 seconds)















4.) When light starts flashing, release the button and then press and hold it again until the light turns off (usually takes another 5 seconds).































If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing but start the engine on step 2, instead of just turning the key to 'on'.

The maintence light does not come on just because you need an oil change. Many problems can set off the maintence light. You have to find out what is turning on the light to fix it and turn it off correctly. Ignoring it could cause damage to your car in the long run depending on what is wrong with your car.
