Honda Maintenance Minder Service System
When you need Honda Service?
Performing regular maintenance according to the factory-recommended Maintenance Schedule is the best way to keep your Honda running in optimal condition.
Each vehicle has its own maintenance needs, so Honda develops specific maintenance schedules based on model equipment, such as transmission choice or the addition of a towing package.
The Maintenance Schedule calculates service needs based on your car’s mileage. It checks engine operating conditions and helps coordinate oil service dates and other maintenance check-ups. Prevent problems before they occur.
How do I operate the system?
The Honda Maintenance Minder is very easy to use. As the on-board computer continuously monitors your vehicle, it provides continuous information on the remaining engine oil life left - simply depress the Select/Reset knob on the information display and you will see use progression.
When the on-board computer determines that your vehicle has reached 15% of remaining life, it will turn on the Maintenance Minder light for you. In addition, each time the vehicle is started; the information center will default and automatically display the percentage of remaining life. To return to the odometer/trip meter, simply depress the Select/Reset knob. The following chart will explain exactly when service is due:
|Oil Life %||Message||What to Do|
|15%||Service Due Soon||Now is a great time to schedule an appointment with DCH Paramus Honda for scheduled maintenance services.|
|10%||Service Past Due||You will also see a negative mileage readout which indicates how far overdue you are for service. To avoid harmful wear or damage, take your vehicle in for service now.|
|5%||Service Due Now||As soon as possible, you should take your vehicle to DCH Paramus Honda for scheduled maintenance.|
|0%||Service Past Due||You will also see a mileage readout which indicates how far overdue you are for service. To avoid harmful wear or damage, take your vehicle in for service now.|
Along with the percentage of remaining life, there is a letter and sometimes, a number displayed - what do they mean?
All maintenance items in the display are in code. There are two codes: Main-codes and Sub-codes. Your vehicle will always be due for a main code, and at times for a sub-code. Please refer to your owner's manual, Honda Service History booklet, and the following chart to interpret the code:
