My 2007 ACURA TSX HAS A MAINTENANCE CODE OF A. WITH A MESSAGE THAT READS MAINTENANCE IS 100 MILES OVERDUE. WHATS THE MEANING OF CODE A?


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.

I had my oil changed in my 2007 Acura MDX this morning and the Honda Dealership had no idea how to reset the indicator. How do I do this?


Courtesy of oilreset.com:
Turn the ignition to (II) - do not start the engine. Press the SEL/RESET button on the steering wheel repeatedly until engine oil life is displayed. Press and hold the SEL/RESET button for more than 10 seconds. The remaining engine oil life reset mode will be shown on the multi information display. Select RESET by pressing the INFO (??²/??¼) button, then press the SEL/RESET button to reset the engine oil life display. The maintenance item code(s) will disappear, and the engine oil life will reset to 100. Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset. *Models equipped with the keyless access system have an engine start/stop button instead of an ignition switch. Pushing start/stop button once without starting engine is equivalent of ignition (II).
Best of luck! Greg
