Honda Civic Hatchback 2022 Checking the Battery User Manual
Checking the Battery
The condition of the battery is monitored by a sensor located on the negative terminal of the battery. If there is a problem with this sensor, the driver information interface will display a warning message. If this happens, have your vehicle inspected by a dealer. Check the battery terminals for corrosion monthly.
- If your vehicle’s battery is disconnected or goes dead:
- The audio system is disabled.
- Reactivating the audio system P. 243

The battery gives off explosive hydrogen gas during normal operation. A spark or flame can cause the battery to explode with enough force to kill or seriously hurt you. When conducting any battery maintenance, wear protective clothing and a face shield, or have a skilled technician do it.
Battery post, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash your hands after handling
Charging the Battery
Disconnect both battery cables to prevent damaging your vehicle’s electrical system. Always disconnect the negative (–) cable first, and reconnect it last. When you find corrosion, clean the battery terminals by applying a baking powder and water solution. Clean the terminals with a damp towel. Cloth/towel dry the battery. Coat the terminals with grease to help prevent future corrosion. When replacing the battery, the replacement must be of the same specifications. Consult a dealer for more information. The battery installed in this vehicle is specifically designed for a model with Auto Idle Stop.
Using a battery other than this specified type may shorten the battery life, and prevent Auto Idle Stop from activating. If you need to replace the battery, make sure to select the specified type and size. Ask a dealer for more details. The Vehicle Stability Assist TM (VSA®) system, Vehicle Stability Assist TM (VSA®) OFF, Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, safety support and low tire pressure/ TPMS* indicators may come on in amber along with a message in the gauge when you set the power mode to ON after reconnecting the battery. Drive a short distance at more than 12 mph (20 km/h). Each indicator should go off. If any do not, have your vehicle checked by a dealer.
Remote Transmitter Care
Replacing the Remote Battery
If the indicator does not come on when the button is pressed, replace the battery.
- Remove the built-in key
- Remove the upper half of the cover by carefully prying on the slot with a key grip. Wrap a key grip with a cloth to prevent scratching the keyless remote.
- Remove carefully to avoid losing the buttons.
- Remove the battery by prying it on the edge with a flat-tip screwdriver. Make sure to replace the battery with the correct polarity.
Wrap a flat-tip screwdriver with a cloth to prevent scratching the keyless remote.
CHEMICAL BURN HAZARD
The battery that powers the remote transmitter can cause severe internal burns and can even lead to death if swallowed. Keep new and used batteries away from children. If you suspect that a child has swallowed the battery, seek medical attention immediately.
An improperly disposed of the battery can damage the environment. Always confirm local regulations for battery disposal. Replacement batteries are commercially available or at a dealer.
Climate Control System Maintenance
To ensure proper and safe operation, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE J2845) recommends that the refrigerant system only be serviced by trained and certified technicians. Never repair or replace the air conditioning evaporator (cooling coil) with one removed from a used or salvaged vehicle. New replacement mobile air conditioning evaporators must be certified (and labeled) as meeting SAE Standard J2842.
Vented refrigerant is harmful to the environment. To avoid refrigerant from venting, never replace the evaporator with one removed from a used or salvaged vehicle. The refrigerant in your vehicle’s air conditioning system is flammable and can be ignited during servicing if proper procedures are not followed.
The air conditioner label is found under the hood:
Dust and Pollen Filter
The climate control system is equipped with a dust and pollen filter that collects pollen, dust, and other debris in the air. The Maintenance Minder TM messages will let you know when to replace the filter. We recommend that you replace the dust and pollen filter sooner when using your vehicle in areas with high concentrations of dust. If the airflow from the climate control system deteriorates noticeably, and the windows fog up easily, the filter may need to be replaced. Please contact a dealer for replacement.
