While Honda’s are usually intuitive cars, they can get a little confusing for first-time users. That said, there are two ways to reset the oil life on a Honda Odyssey 2013, depending on which type of display you have.
To reset the oil life using the Info Display:
  1. Turn your ignition to the ON position, but don’t start your car.
  2. Press the SELECT knob until you reach the Engine Oil Life settings.
  3. Press and hold the SELECT knob until the display blinks.
  4. Release the knob.
  5. Press and hold the knob for five more seconds. Your oil life should reset to 100%.
To reset the oil life using the Multi-Info Display:
  1. Turn your ignition to the ON position without starting your car.
  2. Using the Info(Up/Down) buttons, scroll until you reach Vehicle Settings.
  3. Use the SEL/RESET to choose this option.
  4. Scroll until you reach Maintenance Reset, then use the SEL/RESET button to select this option.
  5. Select Reset. Your oil life should return to 100%.
If you have any further problems resetting your oil life indicator, contact a mechanic to make sure your sensor is working as it should. Professional repairs can be pricey, but try not to worry. You can offset the cost by saving on car insurance with Jerry.
