I have a 2002 Honda Civic. This vehicle has been running great for a long time.
Right now if I want to start the car I have to use the maintenance override procedure:
- Push the reset button on the dash.
- Turn the ignition on for 10 seconds.
- Turn off the ignition.
- Then start the car.
The car has recently had a fresh oil change and general tune up. This maintenance took place two weeks ago. The car has been running great and runs great after the maintenance override code is done to start up the car.
This procedure is printed in my owners manual. Why would I have to use the maintenance override in order to start this car?
