Keeping up to date with your Honda maintenance schedule is the best way to ensure that your vehicle is always running safely in top condition on the roads in and around Manahawkin. The Honda Maintenance Minder is designed to help keep your Honda car, SUV, or truck always running at peak performance levels on Brick-area roads. This convenient system will display an icon and a code that identifies exactly what kind of maintenance tasks are required. So, what does it mean when the Maintenance Minder displays a Honda A Service or Honda B Service code? Learn all about what these specific Honda service codes mean in this guide from the experts in the Honda of Toms River Service Center



Honda Maintenance Codes: Honda A Service

If the Honda Maintenance Minder is displaying a Honda A Service code, it means that your vehicle is due for an oil change. Along with the Honda A Service code, the system will also inform you of the current percentage of oil life available. 

  • Oil Life 15%: Service is due soon. 
  • Oil Life 5%: Service is due now. 
  • Oil Life 0%: Service is past due. 

Routine oil changes are essential to the health of your Honda. Over time the oil breaks down and doesn’t perform as needed to keep internal engine parts lubricated. In general, an oil change is required every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Your owner’s manual will have the specific recommendation for your Honda model.

Honda Maintenance Codes: Honda B Service

The Honda B Service code also indicates that it’s time to replace the engine oil, but adds inspections of the following:

  • Front and rear brakes
  • Steering gear box
  • Brake hoses and lines (including ABS/VSA),
  • Fluid levels and condition of fluids
  • Exhaust system
  • Fuel lines and connections

Honda Service Sub Codes

In addition to the Honda A Service and Honda B Service codes, the Honda Maintenance MInder may also display a sub code which identifies other maintenance tasks that will need to be attended to based on your vehicle’s maintenance schedule. Here is a rundown of what the sub codes mean:

  • Sub Code 1 – Rotate tires
  • Sub Code 2 – Replace the air cleaner element, check the drive belt, and replace the dust and pollen filter
  • Sub Code 3 – Replace transmission fluid and transfer fluid (if applicable)
  • Sub Code 4 – Replace the spark plugs, replace the timing belt (if equipped), inspect the water pump, and inspect valve clearance
  • Sub Code 5 – Replace engine coolant
  • Sub Code 6 – Replace rear differential fluid (if applicable)
  • Sub Code 7 – Replace brake fluid
