It depends on what generation civic you are referring to. The older hatchbacks require you to turn off the car and remove the hazard and ecu fuses for about 10 secs. These fuses are usually located under the hood on the passengar side near where the passenger struts bolts in. You will know that the reset is successful on these older hatchbacks if you lift up the carpet from the passenger side underneath the glovebox where the passenger's feet rest. There you will see a small circular glass with an led behind it. If it's not blinking red you're good to go. If it is..then it's time to count the number of blinks and translate with a car repair manual (haynes/chilton).
