The trip odometer on my CTXND will not reset. It quit when I tried to reset on the third tank of gas, but started working again. It has quit again. the trip odometer still works and the button still cycles through the options from miles - trip A - trip B, but does not reset either trip meter when pressed and held.

I have tried pulling the battery cable off for 10 minutes to reset the system, but that did not help.

Any suggestions?

Have the dealer scheduled to look at it on Monday.

I've already had a disagreement with the service department when I told them that I need that bike back after the troubleshooting was done while waiting on the parts.

Thanks

To reset the mileage to zero on the trip A&B push and hold the right side button as noted by lalito77 above.
Good luck.

There are senders and the gage. no repairability on that type of gage I bet so Honda will just change out with a new one. The will have to program it for your mileage on the odometer so maybe that is why they want the bike there so they can match them if it is to be replaced. If a sender then there are a few. Check out all the functions of the gage by the book and maybe pinpoint what is not working before you take it in.

good luck. It it is a failure, so far does not seem to be model wide as this would be the first I have heard off. Now doesn't that make you feel lucky? ..not.

Read this:

trip odometer not resetting

and

Trip Odometer will NOT reset

this is a summary:


The left button does not reset the trip meter. To reset the trip meter you have to press and hold the Right button.

Just to throw another challenge into the function, Honda set it up so that if you press the left button first, then realize you need to press the right instead, you have to wait for a few seconds. Pressing the right button immediately after or simultaneously with the right puts you into the setup mode for instrument brightness, mph/kph, clock setting, etc

Thanks, I will give it a try. The right only cycled through the screen brightness and setting the time.

I can confirm the above info is 100% correct. 2018 CTX700D. Simple (now that I know).

MY Procedure (after fueling, before starting a trip, etc.):
1. The Bike is NOT RUNNING.
2. Turn the Key ON. Wait a couple seconds for self-test... (DON'T Start it yet...)
3. Push Right (B) Button (just to make it clear to the electronics that you won't be messed with).
4. Push Left (A) Button until the Trip Meter you want appears (Repeatedly).
5. Push and Hold Right (B) Button for about 3-5 seconds and the Trip Meter goes to 0.0 (SUCCESS!).

Simple, no? <grin>

I only read the Owner's Manual section on this about 5 times and tried to do it at least 10 times - always having no luck because of the silly time-out delay Mother Honda's contractor built into the gauge. Aaargh. Thanks CEETEEX

I have had problems with this too. After filling up, I would try the process with the bike not running and it would not work, but with the bike running, it would work. Gobblins?
