Wouldn't that info be in your owner's manual?
It’s been an owners manual’s for the last 50 years but Honda doesn’t feel the need to give that information to their customers. They would rather try to confuse people with a complicated chart of maintenance ABC 123’s Instead of actually providing a chart in the back of the owners manual like every other manufacture has done forever. I just find it strange that there can’t be one person that works for Honda maintenance that’s part of this forum they can tell everybody that they have an internal chart .Wouldn't that info be in your owner's manual?
Yeah i saw that already and is no way shape or form adequate. I own a 2006 Ford GT which is a super expensive toy that even had a detailed maintenance chart. I know historically the stereotype for most Honda owners were that they couldn't even find the oil filler cap on their car, so Honda just figures if we give them a little light on the dash to tell them what to do that should suffice. Its almost like these days Honda doesn't give their owners enough credit for being able to do there own maintenance if they choose.This is probably the closest that you get.
I think those are the books I ordered a few days ago. Will see.Yes, I understand your frustration. At one time for Honda, the maintenance schedule was available. It was also possible to buy a paper copy of the factory shop manual from Helm Inc. Now, it is a subscription based service. (see thread #77)... the maintenance schedule may be there?
I just got mine this week. so new to the Passport family. had a few Honda’s over the years.What seems to be missing is time-based info. We have just 1300 miles on our 2019 PP purchased in Nov 2019 and already have the Maintenance Minder A pestering us (change oil). I dunno that sitting in a 40F (up North) garage all winter has caused the oil to become degraded and need changing! The display certainly annoys my wife, and she hits Enter to make it go away...
Not seeing "time frames" e.g. our Service Due at 6mo anywhere.About the scheduler. Look a bit lower on the first page of the link. It shows time frames for what is due on Honda’s.
I appreciate having both of the Maintenance Schedules that were posted. However, both do not show when the differential fluid should be changed on AWD PPs. I have seen both, 10,000 miles and at 15,000 miles. I am coming up on 10,000 miles soon. I know it would not hurt to do the change early but would rather wait until 15,000 if called for by Honda. Appreciate any thoughts.
Replace rear differential fluid
There isn’t anything for 6 months specifically.Not seeing "time frames" e.g. our Service Due at 6mo anywhere.
I had to do it at 10K. The dealer mentioned it would be needed again at 30K.
Replace rear differential fluid
Use Honda DPSF-ll. Capacity: 1.82 L (1.92 US qt)
－ Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or towing trailer results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If the vehicle is regularly driven under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).
Thanks for that EKJ! I think to make Wifey happy (it's her PP after all) I will see about resetting the thing. Maybe if we haven't hit 5K by the vehicle's 1st anniversary (in November) we'll have it serviced then!There isn’t anything for 6 months specifically.
The recommendation in the owners manual is for an oil change every 5K miles or 6 months. Oil change is an A code.
You got the code because the current Minder technology is counting the time and/or miles and thinks you are due because you met one of the criteria.
IMO no harm in waiting until closer to 5K miles for the oil change, you just have to deal with the annoying indicator. Service mechanics will reset it then.
Or you can reset the Minder yourself and remember to get the oil changed at 5K miles because there will be no notice for the next service until whatever your odometer reads today + 5K miles.
I'm at 9980 miles and maintenance minder is showing B16 (oil, filter, tire rotation, various checks, and rear diff. fluid change).I had to do it at 10K. The dealer mentioned it would be needed again at 30K.
