How do you reset the oil light on a 2007 Honda Accord?

I just got an oil change on my 2007 Honda Accord LX and it’s running great. The only problem is the oil life indicator still reads 30%. How can I reset the oil light on my 2007 Honda Accord?

Great job staying on top of regular car maintenance! It will keep your Honda Accord LX running great. To update the oil change indicator (aka oil life), you can use the trip button located on the lower right side of your instrument panel.
Just follow these steps to reset the oil life on your 2007 Honda Accord:
  • Turn the key to the on position, but don’t start the engine.
  • Once the instrument cluster is on, locate the trip button on the right side.
  • Use this to select your oil life.
  • Once you see the oil life, press and hold the trip button for 10 seconds.
  • The oil life should start to blink.
  • At that point, release the trip button.
  • Immediately press the trip button again for 5 seconds or until the oil life reads 100%.
If you’re instead talking about the red oil light on your dash, this cannot be reset. It’s a signal that something significant is wrong with your car, such as low oil pressure or an oil leak. You should take your car to a mechanic immediately.
Lastly, just as you wouldn’t overpay for an oil change, don’t overpay for car insurance. By shopping around with the Jerry app, you can make sure that you always get the best rate possible for your Accord.
