How to Reset Oil Life on Honda Civics in 6 Steps

If the Honda Civic Engine Oil Indicator percent is still low even having just changed the oil, chances are you need to reset the oil light! The Honda Civic makes this an easy task, so take care of that light and clear your dash of notifications!

Here are the steps you’ll take to reset your Honda Civic oil light:

  1. Turn on the ignition (one position before starting the engine).
  2. Using the left-hand-side controls on the steering wheel, press Menu and look at the menu screen.
  3. Use (+) to choose Vehicle Information, then hit the SOURCE button.
  4. Press SOURCE once more to visit the Maintenance screen. You’ll see the engine oil life on the i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display).
  5. Use the (-) to choose Yes, then press SOURCE.
  6. Turn off the ignition, then start the engine to make sure the reset worked.

To avoid this task altogether, get your next oil change in Billings at Underriner Honda! Our technicians will be sure to reset your oil light as part of your Honda oil change.

What Factors Impact Oil Life in My Civic?

The Honda Maintenance Minder System keeps track of your Engine Oil Indicator, as well as other vital alerts, though there are many external factors that play into the longevity of your Honda’s oil. Elements that affect your oil include:

  • Local Laurel temperature
  • Total miles traveled
  • Engine load
  • Regular driving speed and conditions

While oil changes are recommended every 5,000 miles or so, your driving behaviors may alter your car’s needs. If your oil light comes on earlier than expected, this means your oil has broken down quicker than usual, and it’s time to schedule service.
