Erratic Gauges or Odd Odometer Display?
 >>  Library  >>  Service, Maintenance and Tech


If you are seeing a blank odometer display or it is displaying garbage or the gauge needles are bouncing you may need to reset the Gauge Control Module.

AHM is advising techs to reset the Gauge Control Module should any of these issues occur on the 02 and 03 RSX. We advise you take your RSX to the dealer to have this reset done however you can do it as follows:

1. Disconnect BOTH battery terminals (don't forget your radio code!)

2. Hold the battery leads together for 60 seconds.

3. Reconnect the battery terminals and start the engine.

4. If the gauges work, go on to step 5. If not, perform a self-diagnostic procedure as detailed in the Body and Electrical Service Manual.

5. Do the Idle Learn procedure (turn off all electrical items, fans, etc. and let the engine idle from normal temp (cooling fan cycles twice) for 10 minutes.

6. Enter the radio code and set the clock etc.
