Is the Engine Oil Indicator on your Honda Civic appearing even though you recently had an oil change? Don’t fret, a quick reset to your Honda Civic oil light will fix that! Resetting the oil life on a Honda Civic is quick and you can have it completed in six simple steps. Follow the guide to resetting the oil life Honda Civic owners can depend on.

Resetting the Honda Civic Oil Light

  1. Turn on the ignition, but not the engine. It should be at the first position.
  2. Press the menu button that’s on the left-hand-side controls on the steering wheel. Take a look at the menu screen.
  3. Press (+) for Vehicle Information, then press the SOURCE button.
  4. Press SOURCE one more time so you end up at the Maintenance screen. That’s where you will see the engine oil life on the i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display).
  5. Use (-) and choose yes, then press SOURCE.
  6. Turn off the ignition, then start the engine to verify the Honda Civic oil reset worked.

Resetting the oil life is part of the Honda oil change, so visit our service center at Lou Sobh's Honda of the Avenues where one of our expert technicians will handle everything! St. Augustine drivers can schedule their Honda oil service online from their home or office. If you prefer to change your vehicle’s oil, however, you need to reset Honda Civic oil life manually.

Are There Factors That Affect Oil Life in My Civic?

Did you know that the Honda Maintenance Minder System controls the Engine Oil Indicator as well as other important indicators and lights? There are multiple external factors that affect the life of your car’s oil and how long it’s expected to last. The miles you’ve traveled and how long, the engine load and temperature, and car and engine speed can influence oil life. If you notice the oil light on your Honda Civic on before your next oil change, the Honda Maintenance Minder System is informing you that the additives may be breaking down faster than expected.
