SOURCE: What does service code B16 Mean?

The B1 means change the oil and rotate the tires and check a bunch of stuff. The 6 means change the rear differential fluid in your 4wd. It's in the owner's manual. Dave

Please note:

Honda makes reference to proper vehicle maintenance in their service/user manual. Consult your authorized Honda dealer before doing anything that may void your vehicle warranty.

Owner's Manual page 193-197.

Resetting the Engine Oil Life
Indicator

Your dealer will reset the display
after completing the required
maintenance service. You will see
‘‘OIL LIFE 100 %’’ on the odometer/
trip meter display the next time you
turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

If maintenance service is done by
someone other than your dealer,
reset the maintenance minder as
follows:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON
(II) position.

2. Press the Select/Reset knob until
the engine oil life indicator is
displayed.

3. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 10 seconds. The engine
oil life indicator and the
maintenance item code(s) will
blink.

4. Press the Select/Reset knob for
more than 5 seconds. The
maintenance items code(s) will
disappear, and the engine oil life
will reset to ‘‘100.’’

Important Maintenance
Precautions

If you have the required service
done but do not reset the display, or
reset the display without doing the
service, the system will not show the
proper maintenance intervals. This
can lead to seriousmechanical
problems because you will no longer
have an accurate record of when
maintenance is needed.
Your authorized Honda dealer
knows your vehicle best and can
provide competent, efficient service.
However, service at a dealer is not
mandatory to keep your warranties
in effect. Maintenance may be done
by any qualified service facility or
person who is skilled in this type of
automotive service. Make sure to
have the service facility or person
reset the display as previously
described. Keep all receipts as proof
of completion, and have the person
who does the work fill out the
maintenance record. Check your
warranty booklet for more
information.

I can't reset my Maint. minder after oil change. It now gives me a code of A12. What do I do to clear this code?


In trip 'A' mode, hold the trip reset stick in and turn ignition to 'on'. Do not start car! If it does not reset, you have a computer glitch. Live with it!

I have a 2011 Honda odyssey. I had a12 service code, so I changed oil and air filter, and rotated the tires. Now I tried to reset the oil life display by pressing the reset button ( the little stick),...


i just looked for this and the proper thing no one states is which model you have. on the touring it requires you to use the sel/reset on the steering wheel. not the turn knob on the cluster. use that on touring models.

A wrench appears and 34a I don't know what that means and I don't have the manual, it happen two days ago. I put engine oil because it showed 15% oil.


That wrench is a maintenance minder indicator lettting you know that your oil's service life is at 15%, not that the level or amount is low. Have your oil changed and have the maintenance minder light reset.

What does it mean when the wrench pops up and the message pops up that says oil life 15% on a 2007 Honda Accord SE sedan?


It is probably telling you that the oil needs changing soon. The wrench is telling you it needs service and the 15% is probably stating you have 15% of life in the oil left, with 0% being the oil has to be changed. Most newer cars recommend the oil is changed every 3000 mi or 3 mo.
