maintenance reminder

If I reset this annoying maintenance reminder (A1), can I reset it again in a few weeks after I actually change the oil, since it wont actually be on?

You can reset the oil reminder at anytime and there is nothing wrong with changing your oil early. The only thing is you don't know what future 1-6 scheduled service is due next until it is displayed at 15%-0% on the oil reminder if you reset weeks apart. You might end up skipping a future service if you reset too soon before the next oil change. I'm not 100% sure on this. I have +430,000 miles between my 06 TSX, 08 RDX, and 11 MDX and I stick with the resetting the oil when it is changed.

If it was dino oil I would change it but it is synthetic...no reason to change it this soon. The computer doesn't know the difference. I have 345,000 on 1 car and well over 1,000,000 total on all of them. I tend to drive them till the wheels fall off and that happens long before the engines wear out.
