You don’t need to travel forward in time to get a car that speaks to you – your Honda already communicates with you when something is wrong — but it sometimes helps to have a translator at hand. If your Honda displays the “Maintenance Due Soon” message while you’re driving between Nicholasville and Georgetown, your car may be alerting you that it’s time to have it serviced. If this is the case, you should take your vehicle in for service. Fortunately, Honda service codes are a simple language to learn, and Auto Alternative is here to translate and break down the information so you can get your car fixed and back to use as soon as possible. In addition to the 15 percent Oil Life message, an alphanumeric code will be displayed on the same screen simultaneously as the 15 percent Oil Life message. Here are the codes and the translation of what they are telling you:

A: Oil and filter should be changed.
B: Engine oil and the oil filter should be changed. Clean and lubricate the brakes on both the front and rear wheels. Adjust the parking brake if necessary. Inspect the brakes and related components.
0: Multi-point examination should be carried out.
1: A tire rotation service is required.
2: Check and replace the cabin and engine air filters as needed.
3: Replace the transmission fluid in the vehicle.
4: Replace the spark plugs, the timing belt (if installed), and the valves as needed.
5: The coolant in the engine has to be replaced.
6: If the vehicle is equipped with a rear differential, the fluid must be replaced.
7: Refill the brake fluid tank.

What is the Honda Maintenance Minder, and how does it work?

Your Honda maintenance minder tells you everything you need to know about the health of your car, but you may be wondering how exactly it works. The maintenance reminder system uses the engine operating conditions to determine the remaining engine oil life, which is shown as a percentage on the vehicle’s screen. For customers, the Honda Maintenance Minder system shows the engine oil life on the information display as a percentage that begins at 100%, and you may monitor your oil over-life percentage as you put miles on the car.
