Honda Maintenance Minder

What you should know about Honda maintenance minder

What does the maintenance Minder do?
Honda no longer has a  ‘recommended maintenance time/mileage schedule’. To save you time and money Honda created the Maintenance Minder system to  show the engine oil life in the information display, letting the  vehicles owner know when the engine oil needs replacing and maintenance  is due. Your vehicle shows engine oil life as a percentage. Your vehicle  will start with 100% oil life and over time as you put miles on the  vehicle it will wind down to 0% signaling the oil life is over.

How do I Operate the Maintenance Minder System?
The on-board computer continuously monitors the vehicle, your Maintenance Minder provides  continuous information regarding the remaining oil life in the vehicle.  You can simply press the Select/Reset knob on the information display to  view your oil use progression. To return to the odometer just press the  Select/Reset knob. Each time your vehicle is turned on the  information center will automatically display the percentage of  remaining oil life. When the on-board computer determines the vehicle  has reached 15% remaining oil life it will turn the Maintenance Minder  Light and codes on for you.

Along with the Wrench Symbol and the Percentage of remaining life,  What doe the letter and/or a number displayed mean?
All maintenance items will  be displayed in code. There is a main-code and a sub-code. When your  Maintenance Minder comes on there will always be a main-code, and at  times there will be a sub-code. Please refer to your owner’s manual,  Honda service History booklet and the following chart to interpret the  code.
