Question about Cars & Trucks
This is your vehicles maintence minder system letting you know you are 100 miles over due for an oil change. If you had an oil change performed recently and they did not reset the maintenece minder go off the rec. mileage sticker on the windshield. In answer to your question code A is the main code for an oil service. Often times the main letter codes will be followed by sub-codes that will appear as numbers following the letter. Exp.. A-1, B-1, B-2... The Dealership can clarify what each series of codes and sub-codes means in regards to the needed service. Best piece of advice when the maintenence minder hits 15% oil life remaining bring the car in for service. And check the oil at least once a month.

SOURCE: Oil Light stays on.
it sounds like a faulty sending unit the only way to know for sure is to install a mechanical gauge and measure pressure. or just replace the sender. it is not wise to drive it and just assume it is nothing major. if it is a mechanical problem will cost a lot more if you lock the engine up

I had the same problem when I had my battery replaced.
I guess the mechanic tried to enter the code.... and after 10 tries he failed of course, and the system locked itself and gave the ERROR message.
All you need to do is leave the system on for an hour (Yes, leave it on... meaning you most likely need to drive around for an hour... and sit in the car for an hour doing nothing....) Then the ERROR message will change back to CODE (you will hear a long beep)
Now you can enter your code. Remember do it slowly. Enter the key 1 by 1... Do not input quickly, otherwise it will not work
Hope this helps!

After checking out alot of Honda/Acura forums I'm finding that many owners experience the same problem you are having. The best explanation I found was at 2carpros:
From what I'm reading, only way to stop the oil loss is a new engine. If your car is running fine, I'd hesitate to change anything with the engine and stock up on oil.
