This bulletin applies to 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid models, regarding shorting the SCS circuit with an HDS PC.
Shorting the service check signal (SCS) circuit with the HDS software running on a PC is a little different than what you may be used to with the HDS tablet or HDS Pocket Tester. On an HDS PC you can either short the DCS with the F2 tab or using one of the tools, such as DTCs/Freeze Data or Snapshot found in the Mode Menu.
To short the SCS circuit while in a tool, click on the SCS icon in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Anytime you have the circuit shorted and close a tool, the circuit opens (turns off).
If you want to short the circuit in a new tool, click on the icon again.
