Honda CR-V Passengers

You don’t need to travel in time to find a car that talks to you — your Honda already pipes up when something’s amiss, but you need to know the language. As you make your way through Chicago and Naperville roads, if your vehicle displays the “Maintenance Due Soon” message, your Honda may be notifying you that it’s time to have your vehicle looked at. Luckily, Honda service codes are an easy language to grasp and Valley Honda is here to break down everything you need to know so you can get your car taken care of and get back on the road in no time. Along with the 15% Oil Life message, there will be an alphanumeric code that is displayed on the same screen. Here is how to decipher the code:

How Does Honda Maintenance Minder Work?

While you can surely see the value of having your Honda maintenance minder indicate what you need to know about the condition of your vehicle, you may be wondering how it even works in the first place. The maintenance minder system uses information from engine operating conditions and will calculate the remaining engine oil life and display it as a percentage. Customers don’t have to remember their maintenance schedule from memory as the Honda Maintenance Minder system shows the engine oil life in the information display as a percentage that begins at 100% oil life and you can monitor your oil over life percentage over time as you put miles on the vehicle.
