How to reset the engine oil maintenance light on a 2013 Honda Odyssey

When your
oil pressure light turns on
suddenly, it’s typically a sign to take your car to the shop. If you just returned home to find that the technicians forgot to reset the oil maintenance light in your 2013 Honda Odyssey, however, you can reset this light by following a few simple steps:
  1. Turn your ignition to the ON position, but don’t start your car’s engine. All of your lights should turn on when you do this, but you won’t hear your engine turn over.
  2. On your vehicle’s dashboard, press the SELECT knob, which is located on the right-hand side.
  3. Continue to press this knob until your display reads Engine Oil Life.
  4. Press and hold the SELECT knob until your display begins to blink.
  5. Release the knob, then press and hold for five additional seconds.
  6. When you release the SELECT knob, you should see your oil life level reset to 100%.
  7. Turn your car off, then start your engine to ensure that your engine oil maintenance light has turned off.
If your oil light remains on, it’s a good idea to talk to a mechanic about the problem. This could indicate a faulty sensor, which is a pretty minor problem, or an issue with your engine oil reservoir, which could cause some serious engine damage over time.
An oil change is an important part of your
basic car maintenance schedule
. If your oil maintenance light is on, chances are your oil might need checking! You can check the state of your vehicle’s engine oil on your own by pulling your oil dipstick out of its reservoir. If you notice that your oil is gritty, sparkly, exceptionally dark, or otherwise looks strange, it’s a good idea to get your oil changed before resetting your light.

How often does a 2013 Honda Odyssey need an oil change?

If you use the factory-recommended SAE classification 0W-20 conventional oil for your 2013 Honda Odyssey, Honda recommends that you change your oil every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Failure to change your oil regularly can cause all sorts of problems for your engine, and those problems will worsen the longer you refrain from changing your oil.
However, it’s important to note that you can use synthetic or conventional oil in the 2013 Honda Odyssey, provided that the oil in question still bears the SAE classification of 0W-20. If you choose to go the full synthetic route instead, your vehicle may not require an oil change for 7,500 to 10,000 miles. This is the equivalent of close to a year of driving for the average American!
