Did you have the reminder light re-set after the oil change. Have it re-set and see if it comes on again.

What is the 15% warning? And why are you asking us instead of looking at your filter and drain plug to see if you installed them properly?

No worry the maintenance count down was not reset. reset the timer (is all it really is) at your next oil change. You can look in your service manual for the steps.

Your service station did not reset the maintenance minder system so the reminder system doesn't "know" you just had the oil changed.Here's the instructions on how to reset your maintenance minder system (from the 2007 Civic Owner's Manual Page 211)If maintenance service is done by someone other than your dealer, reset the maintenance minder as follows:Turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position.Press the SEL/RESET button repeatedly until the engine oil life indicator is displayed.Press the SEL/RESET button for about 10 seconds. The engine oil life and the maintenance item code(s) will blink.Press the SEL/RESET button for more than 5 seconds. Themaintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to ‘‘100.’’
