Maint. reset light not resetting

1998 Accord V6 Auto

Doors closed, key in, hold down reset button, turn key to II, Maint light keeps flashing, then goes out, but when I release the reset button, it blinks three more times. The light still blinks after a start.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a sign of something else.

You holding it down long enough?

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.

Ya, I tried multiple time, holding it down for close to 30 sec one time, still nada.

The difference between what I see on my dash and the vids is while I am holding the reset button down, it still flashes on my dash, where it is solid on the vids.

Make sure headlights are off and total mileage is on instead of the trip mileage. At least thats how it is on Toyotas, just a thought.
