So recently my Accord began to flash the maintenance required light whenever I turn on the car, it turns off when I begin to move. Has anyone experienced this problem or has any idea what it is? The car is a 2003 v6 6 speed coupe with 72,000 miles and still drives normally.Thanks

There is nothing wrong with the car; its just an oil change reminder light. It's based on miles traveled after resetting.

- For the first 6,000mi after resetting, it will light for two seconds when the car is started (normal light test).
- Between 6,000mi and 7,500mi, the light will come on solid for two seconds after turning the key to ON, then flash for 8 seconds.
- After 7,500mi, the light stays on constantly.

After the light stays on and you have changed your oil you can reset the light by doing the following steps:

1) Hold down the trip reset button
2) Insert key and turn to position II
3) Wait 10 seconds and the light will blink and go out
