How to Reset Oil Life on a Honda Civic

Oil Light on Dash
 

Is the Engine Oil Indicator in your Honda Civic showing a low level even though you’ve just added or changed the oil? It’s easy to reset the Honda Civic oil light, just follow these steps:

  1. Turn the key in the ignition to the “On” position, but don’t start the engine. 
  2. Press “Menu” on the left-hand-side steering wheel-mounted controls. The menu screen will then appear on your display. 
  3. Use (+) to choose Vehicle Information, then press the “SOURCE” button. 
  4. Press “SOURCE” once more to access the Maintenance screen. You’ll see the engine oil life on the i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display). 
  5. Use (-) to indicate “Yes,” and then press “SOURCE”. 
  6. Turn off the ignition and start the engine to make sure the reset worked. 

You will need to reset the oil light whenever you change your oil. If you bring your Civic in for an oil change at the Rockingham Honda Service Center, our certified technicians will reset the oil light as a routine part of the service. 

What Factors Impact Oil Life in My Civic? 

The engine load and temperature, the distance driven in miles and hours, and the speed at which you drive on the roads in and around Haverhill can all affect your car’s oil life. If your Honda Civic oil light comes on before your regularly scheduled oil change, it is likely that the Honda Maintenance Minder™ System has detected a low oil level, which could be due to a leak or the oil breaking down more quickly than expected. Whenever the Honda Civic oil light comes on unexpectedly, you should schedule an appointment at our Service Center near Lawrence as soon as possible.
