DIY: Honda PCM IDLE Relearn Procedure on a Honda Civic Hybrid
After cleaning my 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid throttle body, the honda service manual (http://amzn.to/2BgulRA ) tells you to reset or relearn your Honda’s idle. Btw, my Youtube vlogs and reviews may also have associated affiliate links to products that may earn from qualifying purchases.
For a normal Honda Civic, turn off every power load on your car (AC, radio, lights,etc), then turn the key to the ON position for 2 seconds, then turn on the car and rev to 3000 rpm until the engine temperature high enough that your radiator fans start or to operating temperature on your temperature gauge.
For the 2006-2009 Honda Civic Hybrid, you will need to keep the 3000 rpm to charge the IMA battery first to 100% as it will put load on the engine to charge the battery. It takes about 3-5 minutes to charge at and get the engine to running temp. Then you let the car idle for 5 minutes. It should idle at about 830 rpm with no load on the engine. Afterwards you are done! Its that simple. My Honda Civic Hybrid revs were high after the procedures as well as the Throttle body cleaning, moreover it runs more responsive than it did before the cleaning and reprogramming.
