    +1 on black tape. Works wonders.

    Found this:

    How do I turn it off? clicky

    Note: Make certain all the exterior lamps (headlights, parking, etc) are OFF before you try to turn off the Maintenance Required lamp. If any exterior lamps are ON, the computer will not allow the Maintenance lamp to be turned off!
    If you have Daytime Running Lamps (DRL's)... If the DRL's are factory, pull the parking brake lever up before turning the ignition key to II. If the DRL's are aftermarket, read the manual that came with them for how to turn them off, or pull their fuse.

    There appear to be several methods that extinguish the light. These methods are listed in your Owner's Manual. If you don't have an Owner's Manual, you can download the relevant pages (for free) from Honda's own Techinfo site:
    https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/logon.asp

    If your manual's not listed there, or for whatever reason you are unable to retrieve the necessary information from that site, try the suggestions below:

    Steering column square button
    Also from Kevin Sargent: "I assume Honda didn't change the location of the button from '96 to '98, so there should be a small square button, below the steering column and a little to the right, facing away from you (i.e. toward the engine). Hold the button and start the engine, it will reset the light."
    This button is visible if you peek under the steering column. It is recessed into the plastic trim that covers the metal mechanical bits. The 1994 Civic also has this button.

    Odometer reset button procedure
    1. Turn the key to the II position (but not to III, or START)
    2. Turn the key to the 0 (OFF) position, then push -- and hold -- the odometer reset button
    3. Turn the key back to the II position, while still holding the button
    4. After about 10-15 seconds, the light should go off
    5. Release button and turn key to 0.

    Another odometer reset procedure gleaned from www.acuraworld.com
    1. Keys out of the ignition
    2. Push and hold down the odometer Select and Reset buttons
    3. While holding them down, put your keys in and turn the key to II but not to III (START)
    4. The light blinks once. Wait about another 5-15 seconds and the light will then turn off
    5. Release the two buttons
    6. Turn ignition back to 0 (OFF)
    7. Start car as normal.
    The Maintenance Required Light will now be off and stay off for 25,000 miles. This supposedly works for most late-model Honda/Acura vehicles.

    Hold down odometer reset button while starting the engine
    Miles Abernathy writes: "On my 2001 American Honda Accord, I found that starting the engine while pressing the odometer reset button caused the Maint Req'd light to go out the next time I started the engine."

    Slot at bottom of speedometer
    Stick ignition key in and hold until it turns off.


    G'luck!!
    You never really learn to swear until you learn to ride!!
