Reset service light on an Accord 58"plate + error code meaning

Reset service light on an Accord 58"plate + error code meaning

Hi guys
I own a 58" Accord EX GT at 50,000 miles
The yellow service spanner light has popped up and I would like to figure out what the error is to rectify it locally without spending a fortune at the dealers
I bought it 2 months ago from a honda dealer so I doubt it is the oil change

Any suggestions for a quick fix or
A way to access a sub menu to display the error code
translate the code
And reset it?

I have searched the forum and the results seem to be civic oriented

Thanks

The code is AB 3 if that means anything?

I remember seeing those codes in the service book that came with my Civic - which doesn't have the "svrs" system. Haven't got it to hand, however a quick google and another forum says...

A Replace engine oil and oil filter
B inspection service
2 Replace dust and pollen filter, Inspect drive belt
3 Replace transmission fluid
4 Replace fuel filter, Inspect idle speed, Replace spark plugs
5 Replace engine coolant
7 Replace brake fluid
8 Replace air cleaner element
9 Inspect valve clearance

Afraid I don't know about resetting the service light itself

You may have only bought it 2 months ago but when was the car last serviced? Clearly the car is telling you it needs a service. The code that is up is for

A Replace engine oil and oil filter
B inspection service

3 Replace transmission fluid
