You can reset it yourself......1) Turn they key to the II position 2) Turn the key to the off position, and push and hold in the odometer reset/trip button 3) Turn they key back to the II position, while still holding the button untill the light goes out.

Thanks for this. I just replaced the battery and changed the oil. I called the dealership and, after giving me the wrong radio code, they also said I would need to 'come in to the shop' to reset the main req'd light. What a bunch of sheisters.

I wouldn't go back to that shop if they do not know how to reset an oil light.

Worked like a charm have 193000 miles and running strong great Honda .

Had oil changed and after leaving on trip the next day my engine light came on. Put over six hundred miles on it with light still on, ran like a champ. Tried your method did not work. Going on 221,000 miles.
