    Green is good. When you're coming up on a regular maintenance interval, it should change to yellow, when you've hit the mileage mark for the maintenance interval, it should change red. At least that's what i thought it did in my old Accord. It might change when something goes wrong not related to regular maintenance intervals, but I'm not positive on that.

    My wife's 00 EX has this. It's never turned yellow before, but it will flop to red every once in a while. I think it goes every 5K miles. Next to it there should be a black rectangular button that you can push in with a key to reset it to green. It doesn't have any effect on how the car runs or drives, it's just there as a reminder to keep up on your maintenance.

    correct, it doesn't work off of any sensors or anything. its basically a milage counter.

    it goes from green to red at 12,000KMS, runs off Odometer. The older hondas did have a green-yellow-red.
