What to Do When Your A1 Service Light Comes On


When you see the A1 service code appear on your Honda’s dashboard display, don’t panic.

This is part of your vehicle’s Honda Maintenance Minder function, designed to let you know exactly what kind of service you’ll need soon.

Here’s a simple reference guide for the codes:


Replace engine oil


Replace engine oil and oil filter


Rotate tires and check tire inflation and condition


Replace air cleaner element, dust and pollen filter, and inspect drive belt


Replace transmission fluid


Replace spark plugs and inspect valve clearance


Replace engine coolant


Replace rear differential fluid


Replace brake fluid


Let’s say “A1” shows on your dash display. That means you’re due for an oil change, tire rotation, and an inspection of each tire to check its condition.
