Honda Civic Touchscreen for Oil Change Light

Your Honda Civic‘s Engine Oil Indicator percent is still low, even though you just changed the oil? Don’t fear — all you need to do is reset the Honda Civic oil light! Here are the steps you’ll take to reset your oil light on your newer Honda Civic model:

  1. Turn on the ignition (one position before starting the engine).
  2. Press Menu and look at the menu screen using the left-hand-side controls on the steering wheel.
  3. Press (+) to choose Vehicle Information, and then hit the SOURCE button.
  4. Select SOURCE again to go to the Maintenance screen. The engine oil life will be shown on the i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display).
  5. Choose Yes with the (-) button, and then press SOURCE.
  6. Turn off the ignition, and then start the engine to check that the reset worked.

Have Your Oil Light Reset at Fisher Honda

If you visit the service center at Fisher Honda, our certified technicians can reset the oil light for you as part of a Honda oil change during your regularly scheduled maintenance visit. Denver drivers can schedule a Honda oil change with us online in a matter of minutes. If you changed your own oil, you’ll need to manually reset your Honda Civic oil light.

Factors that Impact Oil Life in Your Honda Civic

The Honda Maintenance Minder System in your Honda Civic controls Engine Oil Indicator percentage, as well as other crucial lights and indicators. How quickly that engine oil percentage depreciates depends on several external factors, including:

  • Engine load and temperature
  • Miles you’ve traveled
  • How long you’ve traveled
  • Car and engine speed

If your Honda Civic oil light comes on before the next scheduled oil change according to your owner’s manual or maintenance schedule, that means the Honda Maintenance Minder System is telling you that oil additives are breaking down more quickly than expected — likely due to one or more of the above factors.
