    on my 99 civic it would come on every few thousand miles to remind you to do regular maintnance liek plugs and oil. if you do that stuff normally then don't worry about it. on my car all you had to do was take your car key and stick it in the hole next to it and it would go back to green.

    the dumbass i got the car from said it was red because he had an aftermarket intake on it. LMAO

    no need to take it in, on the 2gen tegs it is a button under the dash.


    Just sit in the driver's seat, and reach down directly underneath the ignition key. Feel around behind the bottom edge of the panel for a square plastic piece. The button is in the center of that piece. Hold it down while starting the car and the light, instead of flashing, will stay on for a couple of seconds (constantly), and then go out.


    behind this panel.

    dude... your a geineous, i have gone to shops and looked around on the net and everyone told me to take it in that just to get the light reset they wanted 80 bucks so i just kept track of my milage for the last 12k miles and did regular tunups,... i have always wondered what that button was,, i have played with it many of times,
    maybe you can also tell me what the other switch is, above the clutch pedal across from that reset button
