Had oil change yesterday. Bitter cold today, 13° currently.

Customer Question

Had oil change yesterday. Bitter cold today, 13° currently. Car started in garage, while I waited for it to warm up, checked to be sure oil indicator had been reset, it had not. While the motor was still running, I tried to reset. Ten minutes later, still not successful (referring to manual). Shut engine off, tried to restart, nothing. Brake pedal seems high, lights on dash triple-flash, no crank, no nothing.
JA: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?
Customer: No. Suggest how or do I research in owner's manual?
JA: What is the model of your '13 Honda?
Customer: '14 Honda Accord.
JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I'm stuck in the garage, no other vehicles to jump start from. Tried using spare key-fob, both have new batteries.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No.
