go to your local auto parts store and they will read your "check engine" codes for free, then you can come back here with the exact code number and ask the question as to what is causing it.

The maintenence required light is just a reminder- You have to hold the button in by the odometer then turn on the key { don't start } for 10 ? seconds-- That should reset the maintenence light-- Go have the other { check engine } light tested at a auto store. My 2000 accord had a loose wire on my oxygen sensor- I also had a light at a different time that was the IAC { idle air control } but i also had a screwey idle-- New IAC fixed it. No more CHECK light.

Check engine light can be easily checked for free at any Auto Zone or Advanced Auto Parts. My guess is that it's probably an O2 sensor like my 1997 Accord had. As for the maint light, you hold the trip odometer in while turning the key to the on position for maybe 8-10 seconds. That will clear the code and turn off the light. They usually come on at intervals set by Honda and are pretty useless as long as you maintain your car!
