The Exclamation Point ( ! ) is the indicator for the Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) system. This indicator has three functions when it comes on:

1. It comes on as a reminder that you have turned of the VSA system.

2. It flashes when the VSA system is active:
- VSA Activation Indicator When VSA activates, you will see the VSA activation indicator blink.
Vehicle Stability Assist
(VSA) System Indicator
If this indicator comes on while driving, pull to the side of the road when it is safe, and turn off the engine. Reset the system by restarting the engine. If the VSA system indicator stays on or comes back on while driving, have the VSA system inspected by your dealer.

The link below is the 2008 Honda Accord Owners manual. Go to page 62 for a quick explanation and then page 282 for the full explanation.

TPMS Tire Pressure Monitoring System

Check ALL including the spare tire for proper air pressure. If all is well then check the fuse for the TPMS module. If all is well there, off to the dealer you may have to go.

What does -45 means on the dash board of 2008 honda pilot

Its usually the outside temp reading, and the sensor has failed or its disconnected. That is the max low temp the display can show.
Or the temp setting for the HVAC, and again the sensor or the control module has failed.

How do I reset my 2008 Honda Accord oil %

Honda Accord 1998-09 To reset MAINT REQ’D light, press and hold select/reset button on right side of instrument panel. Turn ignition on and hold until the light goes out.

On the right of your dash is a pair of buttons, one for selecting/changing the odometer and the other for cycling from MPH to KMH and back.
Turn the key on.
Push the select button until your display indicated the remaining oil life percentage. When it is displayed press and HOLD the select button until it begins to flash. Once it starts flashing release the button and press and hold it again. The display will clear and if you release the button and cycle through the display with the select button you will see oil life 100%. Good luck and this should reset the oil life.

Flashing green s on the dash

A green flashing "S" is similar to a check engine light. It is telling you that something in or on your transmission is not functioning correctly, such as the speed sensor or shift control solenoids. If it starts flashing and the speedometer stops working or the transmission shifts weird, take it to a mechanic.
