Hey yall I recently bought a used 2017 civic si with 47k miles from a dealership.
I started my car via the push button and proceeded to get out of my car and continue detailing the paint with the radio on and key at my side.
When I got back in the car to roll up windows and turn it off all of my dash warning lights were on and none of my features were functional.
I attempted to reboot the radio in an attempt to reset it.
That was unsuccessful.
I am hoping that some of you guys have some insight into this issue.
I am going to the dealer today at 3pm to have them scan the cars computer.
I bought this car exactly one week ago today and am trying my best to not freak out that I may have bought a problem.
Thanks in advance for any insight.

I have read, a lot of different times on this forum, that it's a sign that your battery is about to die. That's my first guess.

Honda's have NOT had a good reputation for providing good batteries in their cars. They are renowned for lasting 2-3 years. If yours has lasted 4, you're probably in the minority. They might test it, and say it's fine (and it might, in fact be fine ... at that moment they test it), but I have read many reports of the battery being a leading cause of dashboard warning lights has been a battery about to fail.

You got 4 years out of yours? Might be a record. I got less than 2 on mine. I ended up purchasing a 5 year battery so I won't be stranded 50 miles from my house again...at least until 2025.

I'm not sure if it's the original battery but I'm running into trying to find the correct battery that's going to last here in the Carolinas
