Honda Civic clutch actuator repair

Honda civic semi-automatic transmission problems caused by faulty clutch actuator.


Failure of the Honda Civic semi-automatic clutch actuator will cause multiple gearbox problems, often beginning with ‘N’ flashing in the gear position indicator and the constant illumination of the transmission / i-Shift fault light.

While the vehicle is running, internal failure of the clutch actuator will cause the gearbox to drop out of selected gear and will prevent further selection of gears.

Ultimate failure of the Honda Civic clutch actuator will prevent the vehicle from starting all together and will remain this way until the fault is rectified.


If you have access to diagnostic tools or have had a mechanic diagnose your Civic semi-automatic transmission problems, you will likely have seen fault codes logged in the clutch actuator for: clutch operation problem or neutral position / shift change actuator position learning.


The vast majority of the i-Shift gearbox and actuator components are not serviceable at garage level. Due to this, when trying to rectify faults, an expensive new clutch actuator from the manufacturer will be ordered which will also require coding and gearbox learning at an extra expense.

We offer a better solution to this – we can test and rebuild your Honda Civic clutch actuator within 2-3 working days and return it to you without the need for expensive coding. Unlike the short one-year manufacturer warranty – we will provide you with an unlimited mile lifetime warranty as standard.

Hi, currently having issues with a 1.8 Civic 2007 registration. It shows fault codes P0909 and P0919. Car selects gears fine but acceleration seems to be all or nothing. Pressing the throttle pedal lightly doesn't rev the car, pressing it further makes the car lurch forward erratically. Occasionally it will drive normally but for the most part it does this erratic behaviour. Is it probable that the clutch actuator is at fault? Thanks
