Honda B1 Service Explained

In a clear, concise manner – the Honda Maintenance Minder codes deliver important information related to the maintenance services that your Honda vehicle needs. Factoring in both miles driven and time driven, this system determines exactly when these services are required. This code is designated by a single letter followed by a single number. The letter represents what is known as a “Main Item” while the number represents a “Sub Item”. For this example, we’ll provide a breakdown of what code B1 means.

B — Main Item that tells you that the engine oil needs to be changed.

1 — Sub Item that lets you know that your tires should be rotated. Inspections of various systems and components should also be performed which can vary based on your specific model. See your owner’s manual for additional details. Some of the most typical inspections include:
