Discovering the Meaning Behind the Maintenance Minder™ Codes
The 2017 Honda Pilot is equipped with the Maintenance Minder™ system, a coding system that illuminates a short code onto your vehicle’s dashboard under the “Maintenance Due Soon” light. The codes are a combination of letters and numbers, and each piece indicates a specific service needed. For your convenience, we’ve broken it all down below.
Maintenance Minder™ Main Items: First Half
The first half of the Maintenance Minder™ code will be a letter. The A indicates that your vehicle needs an oil change. This light should pop up about once per year. The B indicates that your vehicle needs an oil change, plus a full vehicle inspection. It may also need a parking brake adjustment, brake work, or topped-off fluids. This light will likely pop up once a year also, in rotation of the A code.
If neither code pops up within a 6-month time period, you should schedule a service appointment and get an oil change anyway. This is a necessary service about every six months or every 5,000 to 6,000 miles.
Maintenance Minder™ Sub Items: Second Half
The second half of the Maintenance Minder™ code will be a number between 1 and 6. This light indicates additional services your vehicle needs during your regular maintenance appointment. These are simple and easily decoded as below:
- Vehicle needs a tire rotation.
- Vehicle needs an air cleaner element and/or dust and pollen filter replacement, as well as drive belt inspection.
- Vehicle needs a transmission fluid and transfer-case fluid replacement.
- Vehicle needs spark plug and/or timing belt replacement, and valve clearance and water pump need inspections.
- Vehicle engine coolant needs replacement.
- Vehicle rear differential fluid needs replacement.
