In a simple, streamlined fashion – the Honda Maintenance Minder codes provide valuable information related to the maintenance services that your Honda vehicle requires. Based on both time and mileage, the system calculates when these services are necessary. This code is listed as a single letter followed by a single number. The letter represents what is known as a “Main Item” while the number represents a “Sub Item”. In this example, we’ll explain what code B1 means.

B – Main Item that indicates that the engine oil needs to be replaced.

1 – Sub Item that indicates that the tires should be rotated. Inspections of various systems and components should also be completed which can vary based on your specific model. See your owner’s manual for additional details. Some of the most typical inspections include:
