How To Reset Oil Life In a Honda Civic

Owning a Honda makes the average driver's everyday commute easy, effortless, and enjoyable. There are many features and technologies included in late model Honda Civics, including the newest 2020 Honda Civic, that Honda owners rave about. Once you've been spoiled by Honda available convenient features you will never want to drive another vehicle make again.

New Honda Civic models manufactured after 2005 are armed with a system that monitors engine oil life. This system serves as a maintenance reminder and informs you when to change your Honda Civic's engine oil. After the oil is changed, the Civic's oil status indicator will need to be reset. When you schedule your service appointment at Number 7 Honda, we will reset your indicator for you. However, if you opt to have your oil changed at another service centre not authorized by Honda Canada, you may have to reset the indicator yourself.

Step By Step Instructions To Reset Your Oil Life Indicator

Once you have completed an oil change for your Honda Civic and your oil indicator light is still illuminated, follow these steps to reset your oil status.

  1. Insert your key into the ignition and turn it to the on position. Do not start the engine.
  2. Press the "SEL" button on the steering column control panel until you see the words "oil life" appear on the odometer.
  3. Press and hold the "SEL" button for 5 seconds or until the display flashes, and the "oil life" display resets to 100%.
