It is the Check Engine light. Something in your engine has sent a trouble code to the on board computer, which turned on the light.

Take it to a Honda dealer for inspection. Or, take it to an auto parts store like Autozone, who can scan your computer for free, and tell you what the code is.

Is your gas cap on tight? A loose gas cap is the #1 reason for Check Engine lights. Go out right now and make sure it is on tight. Do it now, wont take you more than a minute.

If you see the wrench there should be a code in your display that is reading 1A or the sort. It should also read OIL LIFE 15% this is part of the maintenance minder system. Depending on the code it will be a oil change, oil and rotation of tires. It all depends on the code that can be found in the owners manual.
