Maintenance Minder™ General Information - Information Display

Maintenance Minder

The Maintenance Minder is an important feature of the information display. Based on engine and transmission operating conditions, and accumulated engine revolutions, the Civic's onboard computer (ECM/PCM) calculates the remaining engine oil and the transmission fluid life. The system also displays the remaining engine oil life along with the code(s) for other scheduled maintenance items needing service-

Service Information

1- The remaining engine oil life (A) is shown as a percentage on the information display. To see the current engine oil life, turn the ignition switch to ON (II), then push and release the SEL/RESET knob repeatedly until the engine oil life displays-

2- When the ignition switch is ON (II), and the remaining engine oil life is 15 % to 6 %, the remaining engine oil life (A) and other scheduled maintenance item(s) needing service are displayed. The Maintenance Minder indicator (B) also comes on when the engine oil life is 15 % or less.To cancel the display and the indicator, press the SEL/RESET knob-

3- When the ignition switch is ON (II), and the remaining engine oil life is 5 % to 1 %, the message ‘‘SERVICE’’ (A) is displayed along with engine oil life and the same maintenance item code(s)-

4- When the ignition switch is ON (II), and the remaining engine oil life is 0 %, the engine oil life indicator (A) blinks.Pressing the SEL/RESET knob cancels the display, but the Maintenance Minder indicator stays on-

5- If the indicated maintenance is not done, the engine oil life indicator shows a negative distance traveled, for example ‘‘ 10 miles’’ on the display.If the negative distance traveled is between 0 and 9, the indicator is displayed for only a few seconds when the ignition switch is turned to ON (II). The negative distance traveled remains displayed after the vehicle is driven more than 10 miles (for USA models) or 10 km (for Canada models) after 0 % oil life is reached, and the display cannot be canceled.This means the indicated maintenance item(s) should have been done more than 10 miles (or 10 km) ago-

Resetting the Maintenance Minder

NOTE:

The vehicle must be stopped to reset the Maintenance Minder-

If a required service is done and the Maintenance Minder is not reset, or if the Maintenance Minder is reset without doing the service, the system will not show the proper maintenance timing. This can lead to serious mechanical problems because there will be no accurate record of when the required maintenance is needed-

The engine oil life and the maintenance item(s) can be independently reset with the HDS- 1- Turn the ignition switch to ON (II)- 2- Push the SEL/RESET knob repeatedly until the engine oil life indicator is displayed- 3- Press and hold the SEL/RESET knob for about 10 seconds. The engine oil life indicator and the maintenance item code(s) will blink, then release the knob- NOTE: If you are resetting the Maintenance Minder when the engine oil life is more than 15 %, make sure any maintenance item(s) requiring service are done before resetting the display- 4- Press and hold the SEL/RESET knob for another 5 seconds. The maintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to ‘‘100 %.’’

Resetting Inpidual Maintenance Item

1- Connect the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) to the data link connector (DLC)- 2- Turn the ignition switch to ON (II)- 3- Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle and the engine control module/powertrain control module (ECM/PCM).If it does not communicate, troubleshoot the DLC circuit- 4- Select GAUGES in the BODY ELECTRICAL with the HDS- 5- Select ADJUSTMENT in the GAUGES with the HDS- 6- Select MAINTENANCE MINDER in the ADJUSTMENT with the HDS- 7- Select RESET in the MAINTENANCE MINDER with the HDS- 8- Select the inpidual maintenance item you wish to reset with the HDS.
