Maintenance Minder Service System

You want to keep your Honda running in optimal condition, and with your Honda's factory-recommended Maintenance Schedule, you can. Regular maintenance is essential, and every Honda model has its own maintenance needs and a different schedule for service.

Honda has developed detailed maintenance schedules for each Honda model, including factors like its particular powertrain and features.

The Honda Maintenance Schedule calculates your Honda's service needs by its mileage. Common service intervals for Honda vehicles include 7,500, 15,000, 22,500, 30,000, 45,000, 60,000, 75,000, 90,000 and beyond. Preventative maintenance like routine oil service and other maintenance check-ups can help you mitigate or avoid problems down the road.

Honda Maintenance Minder FAQs

See our FAQ section below to learn more about your Honda's Maintenance Minder and its functions. The Honda service center staff at Muller Honda is always here to answer your maintenance questions, so contact our service advisors or visit us in Highland Park, IL at your convenience.

Q: What do the letters and numbers displayed on the Maintenance Minder mean?

A: The Maintenance Minder's display code shows all necessary maintenance items, and will include a main-code and often a sub-code.

Q: The Honda Maintenance Minder says that my car needs 'B' Service. What if I only have 'A' Service performed?

A: The Maintenance Minder is not an oil change indicator, rather, it recommends maintenance for your entire vehicle. By selecting the correct service plan base on your Maintenance Minder code, you can enjoy continued reliability and warranty coverage, along with longer vehicle life, fewer repair needs and better resale value.

Q: If I do oil changes myself, should I reset the Maintenance Minder?

No. The Maintenance Minder is intended to remind us of all maintenance requests, not just the need for an oil change. If your Maintenance Minder indicates that service is due, then you should complete the recommended service at a Honda service center to reset the Maintenance Minder light.

Q: If I change my oil every 3,000 miles, how will the Honda Maintenance Minder help me?

A: Honda encourages you to follow your vehicle's maintenance plan. The Maintenance Minder system is designed not only to help the driver, but also to minimize wasted natural resources like oil, as well as hazardous materials like used oil and filters that require proper disposal. Plus, you will only be paying for maintenance and service when it is necessary, saving you money and time!

Q: How does the Honda Maintenance Minder know when the 0% trigger Occurs?

A: The advanced onboard computer system in your Honda continuously monitors the vehicle's engine and operating conditions, and the Maintenance Minder will count down the oil life based on these factors to determine when an engine oil change and other maintenance is required. Your Honda's factory-recommended Maintenance Schedule is based on vehicle mileage.

Q: How many Miles can I expect to go between oil changes when using the Maintenance Minder System?

A: The Honda Maintenance Minder adjusts based on individual driving habits. If you maintain similar driving habits including a mix of city and highway driving, you can expect your mileage between services to remain about the same.
