did u have a maintenance recently? if not, maybe do that. if yes, then the maintenance minder has to be reset.

read your owners manual its all there

this is how to do it for most honda's.... with engine off press and hold the odometer reset button. then turn the ignition switch one click, so you have power to your accessories but haven't started the car. hold onto the button until it the maintenance required light goes away

As far as I remember, my old Integra has a button at the bottom of the steering column.

Manuals don't have transmission fluid dip stick.

If it's time to change your tranny fluid, just change it. If you have changed it recently and just want to make sure how much is in there, you would need to remove the passenger tire, with the car jacked to regular ride height, remove the tranny filler bolt, and see if the fluid is level with the opening of the filler hole.

haha im so dumb, keep on thinking it tranmission oil.
is there any other way to check the tranmission fluid beside taking the tire out?

The answer is no, the tire is blocking the transmission filler bolt.

Like I said, there's no need to check it if its time to change it. Just change it, doesn't cost much, or you can do it yourself.
