Changing the oil won't make the malfunction light come on. take it to autozone or checker. They will read your codes for free.

I have 2007 honda civic and need to reset the service light?


  1. Edit Step 15 ¶ When it's time to change the oilin your Civic, the maintenance light (orange wrench) will appear on your dash, as well as a B1 message, showing an oil life of 15% or less. To reset the Oil Life % gauge, press and hold the SEL/RESET button for about 10 seconds until the Oil Life message begins to flash.

What does it mean when the check light (yellow) comes on in my 1997 honda del sol? Is it an emission malfunction? I always twist the gas cap about six or seven times to ensure its tightness and the...


Yes it is a emission problem, But the emmissions are a complete set of sensors, parts and wiring that does need replacement from time to time. Such as O2 sensors, temp sensor, oil pressure sensor, catalitic converter, vacume line, wiring, . you need to get the code from the ECU to get the exact problem diagnosed, Most any oil change shop can do this for free as long as thats where you change your oil, As soon as you get the code you will know the faulty part.

Check engine light


P0041 Downstream Oxygen Sensors Swapped From Bank To Bank
How does a P0041 code trigger the check engine light? This code will trigger the light to come on under the following condition:

The Heated Oxygen Sensor Monitor, a strategy built into the computer, determines if the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) signal response for a change in fuel trim corresponds to the correct engine bank. If a response from the Oxygen Sensor being tested is not indicated, a trouble code will be set and the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) will illuminate.
Possible Causes:
Crossed Heated Oxygen Sensor harness connectors
Wiring swapped from one Oxygen Sensor connector to the other
Wiring changed at the computer connection or in the related harness

2001 honda civic obd code


reset the ecu pull #6 fuse 15a for 10 msec. check oil level fill if needed. start engine hold at 3 grand for at least 2 sec road test if still comes back 1259 repeat 2 times. If it is gone it is intermit problem check for loose terminals at VTEC solenoid vavle oil pressure switch and the ECM/PCM. If you still have the code turn ignition off remove resonator disconnect the VTEC oil pressure switch 2p connector check for contnuity between VTEC oilpress switch terminals 1 and 2 if none replace the oil pressure switch. if yes measure voltage between ECM/PCM connector B9 and body ground. Voltage? repair open wire between B9 and the oil pressure switch. If no than the ECM/PCM will need to be checked for the latest software and reprogrammed to be further diaged. This will only be able to bedone at the dealer.
