MAINTENANCE MINDER

2007 Honda Fit

Computer problem
2007 Honda Fit 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 25200 miles

I have a problem in resetting the maintenance minder on a 2007 Honda Fit. With the reset knob held down, the oil life and maintenance code lights blink but does not reset after lights stop blinking. Reset knob is still held down after light stops blinking as per the manual for reset to occur.

Any suggestions please.

Hi autopertama,

Thank you for the donation.

There are a few different procedures for resetting and the owner's manual might not have given you the specific one.

Try this procedure.

Turn key on
Press knob to bring up oil life.
Hold down till back ground goes away and oil life/cancel come up flashing.
Turn knob to bring oil life only.
Hold down again to get the reset of 100 %

Hello,
I tried the above but no result. The display is showing " Service A12" and " -45" for mileage past service. With the display flashing, turning the knob does not change display. I held knob down until flashing stops but no reset.
Any other suggestions please. Thanks
