I did it last oil change, and I forgot it is either hold both buttons or something to do with the stereo power button? I could be confusing the 2.

you turn your key to II.

press select. when u get to the oil life, hold for 10 seconds till it starts blinking.

let go of the sel button. then press again for about 5 seconds and u will see it back at 100.

I look in manuels and it had nothing about how to change it back to 100% they need to stop being greedy and thinking that we will go back and pay money so they can set it right again...I love hondas but the manuels could be more helpful on things like that or dont even put it on the cars. dont get me wrong i love acura and honds, but the chinnese are a little greedy when it comes down to the little stuff

If the pages instructing you how to reset the indicator were torn out, then that sucks. Otherwise, it is in there. You just didn't look hard enough. Honda tells you how to do it. If they were that greedy, they'd say that taking your car anywhere besides the dealer, or doing maintenance yourself would void your warranty.

Don't make such ignorant statements, especially when basing your reasoning on someone's ancestry. BTW!!! Soichiro Honda was Japanese.

Pretty sure honda was engineered by Japanese people. And as far as Chinese products go, I'm pretty sure you get more for your money (not in quality) in quantity so its quite opposite of what you said. Don't be ignorant. That's like saying Ford, those them Germans can't design cars.
