    welp first off that light is telling you you to get an oil change (goes off every 7500 miles i believe)
    anyway to turn it off on an integra:
    look under the driverside dash kinda close to the center console
    you will see a little button ( i think its blue )
    with the key in the off position, press and hold the button
    turn the key to the on position, dont start the car, still holding the button
    after a few seconds, the maitenence light will blink a few times and then turn off
    release the button turn the key off then start the car
    the light should be off

    Would this be the same for say my 04 TSX. I have the same light and only if I take it to Acura is it ever reset?

    for the 04 TSX you will not have that button under the dash

    there should be a button to reset your tripometer (says "reset" on it)
    press and hold that button
    turn key to on
    wait for light to blink then turn off
    release button
    turn car off and restart it

    should be gone

    some require you to hold 2 buttons on the center dash area ("SELECT" and "RESET") ... not 100% sure on the TSX

    it should tell you how to reset the light in the owners manual
