What Does The A1 Service Mean?

Dashboard

It can be tough to keeping track of when to bring your vehicle in for service. With Honda Maintenance Minder, however, all you need to do is look out for a maintenance code on your dashboard. Our Honda Service Center near Hicksville is here to tell you what the codes mean. 

Schedule Service

The code shown is a function of the Honda Maintenance Minder, which tells you not only when your vehicle needs service, but what exactly needs servicing.

The code is comprised of a main item (letters) and sub items (numbers), each with their own distinct definition.

Main Items

A – Replace engine oil

B – Replace engine oil and oil filter. Inspect certain systems and parts

Sub Items

1 – Rotate tires, check tire pressure and quality

2 – Replace air cleaner element, inspect drive belt, replace dust and pollen filter

3 – Replace transmission fluid

4 – Replace spark plugs, inspect valve clearance

5 – Replace engine coolant

6 – Replace rear differential fluid

7 – Replace brake fluid

There is always a main item anytime Honda Maintenance Minder indicates your vehicle needs servicing. At times, there will be one or more sub items. 

The code “A1,” for instance, means you need to replace your vehicle’s oil and to rotate your tires, ensure appropriate tire pressure, or have your tires replaced.

Honda Maintenance Minder also lets you know that service is due soon by showing your vehicle’s oil life as a percentage. At 15% oil life, the Maintenance Minder light will turn on.
