How do you reset the oil light on a 2004 Honda Accord?

Can you tell me how to reset the oil light in my 2004 Honda Accord? I got my oil changed recently, but the light won’t turn off.

To reset the oil light in a 2004 Honda Accord, just follow these steps:
  • Turn your ignition to the ON setting, which is one click before starting the engine.
  • Turn your car off again.
  • On your odometer, find the Trip B button.
  • Press and hold the button while you turn your ignition back to the ON position.
  • If your maintenance light does not turn off, repeat these steps.
If the oil light won’t turn off, you may need to talk to a mechanic about the issue. It’s possible that your sensor is malfunctioning, or that there is an issue with your oil reservoir.
