okay so I copied this procedure....

1) Turn they key to the II position
2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset button
3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button.
4) After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off.

I know here in Lincoln, NE you can take your care to Advaced Auto Parts or soem other auto parts stores and they will do free trouble code scans. I know this doesn't really help you reset it but just in case there was another problem, you could check it out.

The "maintenance required" lamp has nothing to do with error codes. It's just a reminder based on mileage.

To reset that lamp, sir_nasty has it a little bit wrong...
1 - With the car turned OFF, press & hold the odometer reset button.
2 - Continue holding it, turn the ignition switch ON
- - don't need to actually start the enigne, but the key has to be in the running (III) position.
3 - Continue holding it for another 20(?) seconds
4 - lamp will flash a few times & then shut off.

reference: having done this many times on my 1998 & 2003 Accords.

------------
Daud, you talk about km, so you're not in USA. Labeling of the engine warning lamps might be different...
Malfunction lamp (labeled 'check engine' in USA) indicates that some error has occurred & there's a code stored by the computer.

OK, Ottowa & Toronto. Now we know you're in Canada, not Singapore or ??

Canadian Hondas are virtually the same as US. I'm pretty sure that the discussion about malfunctioning emmissions system is talking about the check-engine lamp. That's completely separate from the maint.req. lamp.
