Default 2005 civic maint req'd light on

I have no idea why it is on. It started out to flash when i turned the car on than go away. Now it is solid as soon as the car is turned on. The car still runs perfect and shows no sign of problems.

The vehicle has 58k miles. Any ideas? or will it HAVE to be run through a program at a shop.

If it's not the check engine light, then the light is simply a friendly reminder for you to change the oil.

It registers mileage since the last reset.

they probily forgot to reset the light or didnt know how. i believe on those you gotta hold the trip/reset button down and turn the key on, once the light blinks it should be reset

so basically it wasn't possible if that's the method because i went to a 15 min oil change place and they didn't even step foot in my car... so it couldn't have been reset. ugh, jerks :P. Oh well, i'll go to a different place to change my oil this time, thank you all very much!
