Default My 04 Accord is at 89K miles. Dash states "main req'd", is this a reminder that I need my 90K...

...tuneup? I checked the oil and water which are ok, and the dash light still illuminates

It's to let you know it's time for an oil change.If you recently had one then they didn't reset your oil light ( it may not have been on at the time. ), that light comes on by mileage. If you haven't had an oil change , it's time to get one.

This light is turned on automatically by the cars computer at certain mileages. If you are up to date on service/oil changes you can just reset the light by following the instructions below.1 - With engine turned off, press & hold the mileage reset stem next to the speedometer 2 - Start engine 3 - Wait 10 - 20 secs until light goes off 4 - Release the reset stemIf you are not current on Service/oil changes, take it in to your local shop. They will perform the needed service and reset the light for you.
