So in other words I have to go to the dealer to get robbed......Ok ThanksG Rahn said:The indicatror is tied to your odometer and will change at each 7500 mile interval between resets. It is used as a reminder for you to perform the indicated service schedules. If your services are up to date, you can go ahead and reset it by inserting a key into the adjacent slot and it will return to green.
No, it means you simply ignore it and reset it if your car has already had its major maitenance done, or if you don't wish to do it at this time. Like Guy said, it is connected to the odometer just like the trip meter is connected to the odometer, only instead of numbers on the wheel there is a green/yellow/red sticker on the wheel that you see change colors as the mileage goes up. You reset if back to zero, or green in this case just like the trip meter. If you happen to reset that indicator every day, then it will never turn orange and stay green. It is simply a reminder so you about how many miles you traveled since you last reset the meter. Usually people reset their meters after they get a service done, and usually the Acura recomended service is at 7,500 miles, so in this case, since the meter will turn to red at about 7,500 miles, it can be a good reminder to get a service done. Provided the meter was reset at the proper time.whiplash9001 said:

Yes, those trivia things. The list is found in the owners manual.dlowrey1972 said:By maintenance, you guys are referring to checking spark plugs, engine oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid, timing belt and that sort of thing right? Is there a list in our car manuals that go thru what we need to do every 7500miles? thanks.
