How to perform Honda Civic check engine light reset with Autel MaxiCOM MK808

How to perform Honda Civic check engine light reset with Autel MaxiCOM MK808 Diagnostic Tool? This 2018 Honda Civic got a flashing check engine warning light here, I will do a basic diagnose on Autel MK808 scanner to get the fault codes and warning light reset.

Connect Autel MK808 with OBD2 port of Honda, now let’s start:

Diagnostics >> Honda >> System selection >> Europe

Control unit >> Engine-PGM FI >> Read codes

There are 2 fault codes P0353 permanent DTC and Temporary DTC. So I already knew this in fact there was a problem with the ignition coil. I’ve put a new ignition coil in but obviously it is still getting the check engine light.

So what I need to do is using the MK808 tool to actually tell the ECU that I’ve put a new part in and to attempt to reset. Let’s go on.

ESC >> Erase codes >> Yes >> Yes

Codes have been successfully erased, press “OK”.

Turn the ignition switch off.

Return back to press “read codes” >> No fault codes detected, press “OK”.

Here we go, now I will turn the engine on to check if the warning light has gone completely. Yep, it has gone off, which is a good news.

So this is the Autel MK808 OBD2 Scanner reset check engine light for a 2008 Honda Civic. It is really good and powerful with a reasonable price. For anyone who is considering it as DIY use or for a small workshop, it is actually a phenomenal tool with wide vehicle coverage for diagnosis.
