Honda Maintenance Minder: Understanding Service Codes and Sub Codes

Honda Maintenance Minder Banner

If you are cruising around Bayonne and notice that the Maintenance Minder on your Honda dashboard lights up, there’s no need to panic. It’s just the system alerting you that the vehicle is due for service. Learn more about what the Maintenance Minder codes and sub codes mean in this guide from the service team at Metro Honda.


How Does the Honda Maintenance Minder Work?

The best way to keep your new Honda car, truck, or SUV running smoothly on Newark-area roads is to keep up with your maintenance schedule. Thankfully, the Maintenance Minder system in your Honda lets you know when it’s time for your next oil change or maintenance service. These reminders protect your car from serious breakdowns in the future, saving you both time and money.

So, how does the Honda Maintenance Minder work, and how do I operate the Honda Maintenance Minder? The Maintenance Minder system has sensors that automatically detect and display the percentage of oil life, starting at 100% and tracking all the way down to 0%. The Maintenance Minder dashboard light will come on when it detects that your oil level is at 15%, and will continue to update percentages until the vehicle is serviced. Here’s what the oil life percentages mean:

  • Oil Life 15%: Service is due soon. Schedule an appointment with the Service Center at Metro Honda.
  • Oil Life 5%: Service is due. Stop by Metro Honda for maintenance.
  • Oil Life 0%: Service is past due. Bring your vehicle in for maintenance as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary wear or potential damage.

What Do the Honda Maintenance Minder Codes Mean?

The Maintenance Minder codes and sub-codes indicate exactly what kind of service is required. Keep in mind that the maintenance service codes indicate an action that needs to be taken, while the maintenance sub codes include additional components that should be checked or serviced regularly. These codes ensure that you enjoy safe and efficient performance on the Hoboken roads. What do the Honda Maintenance Minder codes mean? Check out the service codes and sub codes below.

Main Honda Service Codes

Honda Service Code Meaning
1 Replace engine oil
2 Replace engine oil and oil filter, inspect front and rear brakes, steering gear box, brake hoses and lines (including ABS/VSA), all fluid levels and condition of fluids, exhaust system, fuel lines and connections

Maintenance Sub Codes

The sub codes are activated when the main codes are triggered. These items require maintenance on a time/mileage-based schedule, and the Maintenance Minder will automatically move up or delay the sub codes so they get done with the main-codes to ensure your vehicle is in top condition.

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