Honda Civic 2008 – Inertia Switch

A non-tech post, today our 2008 Honda Civic wouldn’t start and the dash lit up with VSA and Engine Warning lights. Whilst getting in the car the dash got a bang with a knee. The car decided it was in an accident and activated the Inertia Switch to stop the petrol flowing. Locating the switch was a pain in the rear. For a 2008 UK Honda Civic, you have to open the driver door, remove the vertical dash panel that sits next to the door (the other side of the wing-mirror) but on the main dash. With that removed you can reset the Inertia Switch. Hopefully the car will then start and you won’t have broken any plastic panel retainers.
