Easy Fix for Honda Civics with DTC P0606

Vehicle(s): 2006-08 Civic, 2006-08 Civic GX, and 2006-2011 Civic Hybrid

Details: If a Honda Civic, included within the year and model range listed above, comes in with diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0606, Honda advises to first verify that the factory recommended spark plugs are installed. Aftermarket spark plugs may have built-in capacitors that can cause electrical interference, which will set a DTC P0606. Also, the same DTC could set if the spark plugs are badly worn with a gap of 0.080” or more.
