    is there a keyhole on the cluster..if yea put a key in there.
    I also read to turn the car to ON (But not running) and hold the trip-odometer reset in for 5 seconds.

    Nope, there's a button on the right side of the steering column, turn the key on the on position and hold the button down until the light goes off.

    the integra its under the dash by your feet. its a small box about 1.5 inches big. there's a blue button on it.

    as for the accord. you hold down the odometer button as you turn the car on and keep holding it.

    for the integra
    turn the key to "on"
    press and hold the blue button
    wait for the "maint req'd" light to turn off
    release the button
    turn the car off then on

    should be gone


    for most other newer hondas
    press and hold the trip reset button
    turn the key to "on"
    the "maint req'd" light will blink a few times then turn off
    turn the car off
    release the trip reset button
    start the car

    should be gone

    some cars have 2 buttons right on top of eachother on the cluster
    sometimes you have to press and hold both buttons to get the light to turn off

    You Guys. Thanks So Much I have a 96 Integra and I had the same problem The Maintence Light. It was getting on my nerves. But i followed your steps and it worked. How long will it be off for? and after pressing that blue button will it mess up anything else in the car? I hope not:( pls let me know a.s.a.p

    all the light is for is a reminder to take it to the dealer to get an oil change etc.. it doesnt mess anything up

    ^Im a newbie. Lol 17 years old so i dont know much yet of my car as much as i should. I just wanted to know if it would mess up anything else. How long will it take to come back on??And what do you suggest to do now that the light is off?And your positive it will have no other effect on the car?

    Service Indicator Reset 08 CRV

    I realize this is an old thread but this seemed a good place to ask this question.
    I have a 08 CRV. I know how to reset the oil life indicator but how do I reset the "A' service indicator (there is a B indicator as well but it's not lit)? Is there a super secret dealer only handshake or something?

    Thanks, D
