To reset the oil life percentage on a Honda to 100 percent after an oil change, turn the key in the ignition to "on," but do not start the car. Press the knob used to reset the odometer until it displays the remaining percentage of oil life.

Press the knob and hold it until the percentage starts flashing, then release. Press the knob again until the percentage appears as 100 percent. The method is valid for Honda cars made between 2006 and 2011. Honda does not provide details in its user manuals on how to reset the remaining oil life percentages.
