When the “Oil Life” indicator on your Honda Civic dash warns that it’s time to replace your car’s oil, it’s easy to call up your local Lynn Honda dealer and schedule an oil change! However, as you drive off the lot with fresh oil in your reservoir, you may find that the indicator hasn’t reset to reflect your car’s 100% oil life. To learn how to reset oil life on a Honda Civic, read over these simple steps from the expert technicians at Honda North:

Steps to Reset your Honda Civic “Oil Life” Indicator

  1. Turn your key in the ignition, but don’t start the engine.
  2. From the left-hand controls on the steering wheel, press Menu and look at the menu screen.
  3. Press (+) to choose Vehicle Information.
  4. Press the SOURCE button.
  5. Press SOURCE once more to display the Maintenance screen. The engine oil life percentage gauge will appear on the i-MID (intelligent Multi-Information Display).
  6. Press (-) to choose Yes, then press SOURCE.
  7. Turn off the ignition, then start the engine to make sure the reset was successful.

If you’d rather have a professional reset your Honda Civic oil light, ask about it while you’re at our Service Center near Burlington for your oil change. You can also call us later, and a Honda technician will be happy to walk you through the process over the phone!

What Factors Affect Oil Life?

Multiple factors affect how often you should change your oil. Among them are your vehicle’s engine load temperature, and mileage. Your driving frequency and habits also have an impact in terms of average speeds, and what kind of terrain you cover in Lawrence. Because each of these factors has an effect on oil life, the length of time between oil changes can differ each time. Fortunately, the Honda Civic oil light makes knowing when to schedule service a lot easier!
