Default I just had my oil changed in my 2007 Civic Si. How do I reset the maintenance light so it will

go away? It also says my oil life is at 15% still. I tried holding the odometer reset down while turning the key until the lights came on (w/o starting the car) but that didn't work.I found the answer. Nobody answered me right! You turn the ignition to the (II) so the lights come on. Hit the Sel/Reset until the oil life comes up. Hold for 10 sec until it flashes, let up and then hold it for 5 more seconds and it resets!

You got screwed by whoever did the job, take your car back, have them reset the light.

Look in your owners manual on some cars you have to reset it through the factory radio.

you have to plug in a computer to reset the car. I would take it back to the place that changed the oil and ask them to do it. It should have been done if you took it to a mechanic. If you did it yourself then your going to have to take it somewhere and have them plug in their computer to your car. most places will do it for free or nearly free

sometimes there is a whole somewhere by the odometer, if you have one, stick your key in it, that will reset it.

I have a friend who's "service engine soon" light stays on. She had the shop check it for her. They said, there is some kind of thing that needs to be replaced for the exhaust emission. Not replacing it will lower her gas miliage by a little bit, and the "service engine soon" light won't go out till she replaces that part. Around $70.00 I think.

Quite likely that your Honda-like most vehicles...has a small computer on it! They control the vehicles running functions like air/fuel ratio,timing etc. Usually you cannot turn these off manually,and you'll likely have to go to a Shop or Dealer who works with Hondas-and have them remove the "old codes" from your cars system! This is relatively an inexpensive procedure,that would only take a few minutes to perform! Failing that-then you may also have a faulty or worn sensor! You would need to replace it,and that will probably cost you a little cash! Also do not fill the fuel in your tank-right to the very max,leave some air space-this can throw off some sensors-and cause them to come on...and stay on! Same with Oil,do not overfill! If your budget can't meet these individual situations...Just keep up the regular maintainence on the vehicle and get use to the light being on! It may shut itself out-eventually! We have them on Big Trucks as well,and I've driven many vehicles over the years that did'nt even have them! There is no accurate way-outside of "oil analysis" to determine the oils lifespan. It would depend entirely on your driving conditions,types of gasoline and the general running condition of the vehicle in question. Properly scheduled maintainance and filtration are chiefly the key concerns on your vehicles reliability! Honda makes a quality car,but the Oil Life Guage-is really just a marketing gimmick that is put on the car-to give the owner a sense of "feel good" about their vehicle! If you perform regular maintenance intervals...then I personally would not worry too much about maintainance light coming on! Hope this helps...but rest is up to you!
