SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) (If engine electrical maintenance is required)


The Civic Hybrid SRS includes a drivers airbag in the steering wheel hub, a passengers airbag in the dashboard
above the glove box, seat belt tensioners in the front seat belt retractors, seat belt buckle tensioners in the front seat
belt buckles, side curtain airbags in the sides of the roof, and side airbags in the front seat-backs. Information
necessary to safely service the SRS is included in this Service Manual. Items marked with an asterisk ( ) on the
contents page include or are located near SRS components. Servicing, disassembling, or replacing these items
requires special precautions and tools, and should be done only by an authorized Honda dealer.

To avoid rendering the SRS inoperative, which could lead to personal injury or death in the event of a severe frontal
or side collision, all SRS service work should be done by an authorized Honda dealer.
Improper service procedures, including incorrect removal and installation of the SRS, could lead to personal injury
caused by unintentional deployment of the airbags and/or side airbags.
Do not bump or impact the SRS unit, front impact sensors, or side impact sensors when the ignition switch is ON (II),
or for at least 3 minutes after the ignition switch is turned OFF; otherwise, the system may fail in a collision, or the
airbags may deploy.
SRS electrical connectors are identified by yellow color coding. Related components are located in the steering
column, front console, dashboard, dashboard lower panel, in the dashboard above the glove box, in the front seats,
in the roof side, and around the floor. Do not use electrical test equipment on these circuits.

INTEGRATED MOTOR ASSIST (IMA) SYSTEM (If engine electrical maintenance is required)
IMA components are located in this area. The IMA is a high-voltage system. The high voltage cables and their covers
are identified by orange coloring. The safety labels are attached to high voltage and other related parts (see page 1-5).
You must be familiar with the IMA system before working around it. Make sure you have read the Service Precautions
in the IMA section before performing repairs or service (see page 12-3).

Armature Inspection and Test


1. Remove the starter (see page 4-10).
2. Disassemble the starter as shown at the beginning
of this procedure.

Commutator Diameter
Standard (New): 28.028.1 mm (1.1021.106 in.)
Service Limit:
27.5 mm (1.083 in.)

3. Inspect the armature for wear or damage from


contact with the permanent magnet. If there is wear
or damage, replace the armature.

6. Measure the commutator (A) runout.

4. Check the commutator (A) surface. If the surface is


dirty or burnt, resurface it with an emery cloth or a
lathe to the following specifications, or recondition
with 500 or 600 sandpaper (B).

If the commutator runout is within the service


limit, check the commutator for carbon dust or
brass chips between the segments.
If the commutator runout is not within the service
limit, replace the armature.
Commutator Runout
Standard (New): 0.02 mm (0.001 in.) max.
Service Limit:

7. Check the mica depth (A). If the mica is too high (B),
undercut the mica with a hacksaw blade to the
proper depth. Cut away all the mica (C) between
the commutator segments. The undercut should
not be too shallow, too narrow, or V-shaped (D).

9. Place the armature (A) on an armature tester (B).


Hold a hacksaw blade (C) on the armature core. If
the blade is attracted to the core or vibrates while
the core is turned, the armature is shorted. Replace
the armature.

Ignition Timing Inspection
1. Connect the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) to the
data link connector (DLC) (see step 2 on page 11-3),
and check for DTCs. If a DTC is present, diagnose
and repair the cause before inspecting the ignition
timing.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

8. Aim the light toward the pointer (A) on the cam


chain case. Check the ignition timing under a no
load condition (headlights, blower fan, rear window
defogger, and air conditioner are turned off).
Ignition Timing

3. Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle


and the powertrain control module (PCM). If it
doesnt communicate, go to the DLC circuit
troubleshooting (see page 11-218).
4. Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at
3,000 rpm with no load (in Park or Neutral) until the
radiator fan comes on, then let it idle.
5. Check the idle speed (see page 11-342).
6. Jump the SCS line with the HDS.
7. Connect the timing light to the exhaust side No. 1
ignition coil harness.

9. If the ignition timing differs from the specification,


check the cam timing. If the cam timing is OK,
update the PCM if it does not have the latest
software (see page 11-7), or substitute a knowngood PCM (see page 11-8), then recheck. If the
system works properly, and the PCM was
substituted, replace the original PCM (see page

Ignition System
Spark Plug Inspection
1. Remove the spark plugs and inspect the electrodes
and the ceramic insulator.
Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:
Advanced ignition timing
Loose spark plug
Plug heat range too hot
Insufficient cooling

3. Do not adjust the gap of iridium tip plugs (A);


replace the spark plug if the gap is out of
specification.
Electrode Gap
Standard (New): 1.01.1 mm (0.0390.043 in.)

Fouled plugs may be caused by:


Retarded ignition timing
Oil in combustion chamber
Incorrect spark plug gap
Plug heat range too cold
Excessive idling/low speed running
Clogged air cleaner element
Deteriorated ignition coils

Worn or deformed
electrodes

Damaged
gasket

Improper gap
Oil-fouling
Carbon deposits
Cracked center
electrode insulator

Cracked
insulator

4. Replace the plug at the specified interval, or if the


center electrode is rounded (A). Use only the listed
spark plugs.
Spark Plugs:

ILFR6J11K (NGK)
SK20HPR-L11 (DENSO)

2. If the spark plug electrode is dirty or contaminated,


clean the electrode with a plug cleaner.
NOTE:
Do not use a wire brush or scrape the iridium
electrode since this will damage the electrode.
When using a sandblaster spark plug cleaner, do
not clean for more than 20 seconds to avoid
damaging the electrode.

5. Apply a small amount of anti-seize compound to


the plug threads, and screw the plugs into the
cylinder head, finger-tight. Torque them to 18 Nm
(1.8 kgfm, 13 lbfft).

Cruise Control Input Test


1. Connect the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) to the data link connector (DLC) (see step 2 on page 11-3).
2. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
3. Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle and the powertrain control module (PCM). If it doesnt
communicate, go to the DLC circuit troubleshooting (see page 11-218).
4. Go to PGM-FI, and check for DTCs.
5. Do the following tests while monitoring parameters in the PGM-FI DATA LIST with the HDS.
NOTE: Intermittent failures are often caused by loose circuit connections. While monitoring cruise control inputs,
flex their circuits, and note if any of the test results change.

Cruise Control Combination Switch Test/Replacement


SRS components are located in this area. Review the
SRS component locations (see page 24-11), and the
precautions and procedures (see page 24-13), before
doing repairs or service.
1. Remove the drivers airbag (see page 24-160).
2. Remove the eight screws.

4. Check for continuity between the terminals in each


switch position according to the table.
If there is continuity, and it matches the table, but
switch failure occurred on the cruise control
input test, check and repair the wire harness on
the switch circuit.
If there is no continuity in one or more positions,
replace the switch.
