Default Maintenance Required

My maintenance required light came on at about 83000 miles, it was yellow, its been like another 1k and it turned red. does that mean somethings gotten worse or is it just like a reminder or somethin


what all needs to be done at 85,000. i havnt had this car that long and im assuming the previous owner didnt really do much to it.

1995 accord v6 lx

maint required indicator on a 94-97 accord is mechanically driven off of the odometer. resetting the ECU would be pointless. You are thinking 98+ accord there

That's weird.... Not to say it didn't happen because it may have but I was under the impression that it was strictly mechanical as well.... Just more proof that you learn something new every day!

Can you please explain how to reset ECU. I cleaned EGR port on my 97 accord SE and don't know how to reset ECU.

Nope, Im sure not. I didnt even know about pushing the black button with the key, I had never reset mine until I reset the ECU after I cleaned the EGR ports. Reset the ECU, and it was green all of a sudden.

there are two easy ways to reset the ecu, either pull the negative battery cable off for about 5 mintues or remove the main backup fuse (#15 I think) for about a minute....

Is ECU needs to reset right after you clean the EGR ports ??? when I cleaned the EGR port about month ago I did not reset the ECU. My car still stumble always around 2000 RPM. I tried to reset ECU yesterday and car still stumble around 2000 RPM. Any Idea if EGR ports needs to be cleaned again. Thanks....
