That indicator light usually comes on at specified mileage intervals. It has nothing to do with whether or not you actually had any maintenance performed. There should be an easy way to turn the light off, but I'm not sure how its done in a 6 gen. Accord. Try a search, I'm sure you'll come up with something.

It should say in the Owners Manual how to turn the light off

I got the Maintenance Required signal turned off!
In the manual, I got the instruction. I had to turn on the ignition to 2 and pressed the reset knob near the speedometer for about 10 secs till the signal went off...I then started the engine and it was OK. Thanks guys for assisting.

To reset MX Req's indicator light, turn ignition switch to OFF position. Push and hold the SELECT/RESET button and turn ignition switch to ON (II) position. Continue to hold button for more than 10 seconds or until MX Req's light goes out.

Was that the button you pushed, some Hondas have a key slot near the Tach to reset the light.
