    Service Reminder System
    The Service Reminder System is an important feature of the multi-information display. Based on engine operating conditions, the Civic's onboard computer (PCM) calculates the remaining engine oil life. The system also shows the Service Reminder Information Display along with the code(s) for other scheduled maintenance items needing service.

    NOTE: If the vehicle was under some situations where the power was not supplied for a long period of time such as having a 12 volt battery run out, connect the HDS to the vehicle. If not, the Maintenance Schedule may not be displayed with correct information.

    Applicable EU Countries
    The Service Reminder System will not be applied for all the EU countries. Confirm the countries where the system is applied. The system is not active in default setting. The system needs to be activated by HDS at Honda dealer. If the vehicle is taken to outside of the applicable countries, apply the maintenance schedule for non-applicable countries.

    NOTE: If you turn the Service Reminder System OFF after the first activation, it cannot be reactivated. When one month or more passes after disconnecting 12 volt battery terminal, set the date on Service Reminder System with HDS
