Are you the proud owner of a new or used Honda vehicle? If so, you have years of exciting commutes from Sharon to Hubbard to look forward to. In order to enjoy the high-quality driving experience that you’re accustomed to, you’ll need to keep pace with routine care. Whether you’re coming in for preventative service, or the Honda maintenance codes in your dash are telling you to visit us in Hermitage, relying on a service partner you can trust is key. But, what do the Honda maintenance codes mean? Honda vehicles from 2006 and later are equipped with a Maintenance Minder that will show services due in either alpha/numeric form: A or B and 1-7. How does the Honda Maintenance Minder work? Review our service tips below to find out!

So, how does the Honda Maintenance Minder work? Your Honda maintenance codes come in two parts: one letter and one number. The main item that needs service is paired with the letter A or B.
