Default Wrench indicator light questions

My wife loves her 2007 Accord and took it to our long term mechanic for the 30000 miles service.
Now the wrench/service light comes on and it has "10%" left before the oil change, even though the oil looks as clean as a whistle
Is the dealer service necessary to get rid of this light?
Thanks - p

If the oil was just changed, that probably means they didnt clear the maintenance minder. It doesnt actually measure the oil, it just keeps track of engine use. Stuff like # of starts, # of COLD starts, hours, etc. It probably even keeps track ofhow much you romp on the gas pedal.

When itshows the oil %, press & hold the select/reset button until it flashes. Release the button; press & hold it again until it changes to 100%.

Then you should remember to do you next service a bit early since that thing wasnt reset during the 30k service.

Many thanks - I assume "clearing the maintainance minder" means holding it down as you suggested?
Wife is due back in town tomorrow so I'll do it then - thanks again - p

I would look at the owner's manual to reset the maintenance light. That should take care of the problem.

Yup. Holding down the button is how to clear/reset the maintenance minder. That should be the owners manual too.
