    Thanks to CVT!

    1. Start the car and run it to operating temp (no other electricals must be used like aircon, radio, power windows, mirrors, lights). Keep the doors closed so that the dome light is not on.
    2. Shut down the engine
    3. Start engine again and turn on headlights, without operating any other electrical load (other than headlights).
    4. From P(ark), shift to N, D, S, L, S, D, N while waiting at least 2 seconds before shifting to the next position
    5. Repeat the N, D, S, L, S, D, N sequence for 3 times
    6. Turn-off headlights
    7. Shutdown engine
    8. Drive and investigate if the fuel consumption decreases.

    Sorry for the ignorant questions, but what is the purpose of resetting the CVT?

    Is this the same procedure, after changing to a new battery?

    Yes, bro.

    It is encouraged that you have your battery changed at Honda Cars because they need to reprogram your CVT (for those who has this type of transmission in their City or Jazz cars). Trouble is, there, the battery is expensive and you pay for the reprogramming activity.

    So with this, you can buy your battery from any of the dealers and reprogram the CVT yourself. A much more cost-effective alternative.

    I am just wondering why these car manufacturers did not use non-volatile memories, like flash to store the program values so that you need not program the CVT when you change battery. Well.....

    so does this mean that you need to reconfigure your CVT back over again everytime you disconnect your battery? For most repairs, they recommend disconnecting the battery?

    That is how I understand it bro. I could be wrong.

    Although I disconnected my battery only once when I changed it over half a year ago. Did not try though to drive the car without going through the above procedure to feel/assess if there's a change in the shifting pattern....

    hehe parang cheat? hehe. ive tried not to reset and to reset, nothings changed. same mileage. ave of 15km/l sa city driving

    one way daw to know if need mo mag reset is when on a full stop, press the 7 speed mode. if it starts at 2nd gear, need daw to reset. or while driving on 7 speed mode, when you come to a complete stop, ndi na mag 1st gear, 2nd lang din. ndi na bababa ng 1st.
