    31,000 and A12 code

    Got the A12 code this week and almost 31,000 on the vehicle. Got the A1 code approx. 10,000 and again approx. 20,000 mile intervals. The selling dealer (where we had the A1 codes done) was adament about a 30,000 mile service and it would be $300.

    Today I stopped by our local dealer (who couldn't/wouldn't meet the price of the selling dealer for the purchase) and asked about prices and what was included. They have a printed hand-out with the Honda Required Maintenance Packages with the A and B codes listed with what is included and a page with the Sub Items performed WITH Package A or B as well as individual maintenance service prices. This local dealer has a total price of $143.45 for codes A12. This hand-out is for server driving conditions as we have the muddy, dusty roads and a LOT of HOT degree days.

    For some reason I was thinking the B code pops up around the 30,000 mark but that could be because of what the selling dealer's service dept. said. I do know I had figured (using their prices) that the service was $300 and a new set of tires would be due close to the same time.

    Neither dealer uses Honda oil. Selling dealer uses Penn oil and local dealer uses Chevron oil.

    When can I expect that B code to actually pop up as I would hate to do the A12 and then just a few more miles have the B code show up?

    The way the system is supposed to work is when the vehicle is due for an oil change based on the oil life monitor, the first oil change will be an 'A' designation (for oil only, no filter) and the next oil change will be a 'B' designation for oil and filter replacement, along with a few simple visual inspections. The numerical sub-codes indicate various other routine recommended maintenance items, and will alway be tied into the 'A' or 'B' main code.

    The system will not have you do a given maintenance, and then suddenly toss another recommendation at you - it'll be tied into the next oil change interval.

    FWIW, I don't know too many people who actually do an oil change without replacing the filter at the same time, and the visual inspections (belts, fluids, exhaust, suspension, etc...) are pretty much a given when the vehicle is up in the air - I mean, come on, are you supposed to put blinders on because it's in for an 'A' main, not a 'B'?

    As though I would be stupid enough to disagree with him. Well I am stupid enough, just not brave enough.

    Something don't seem right. It should alternate between A and B. I always worry with the inept fumbling I go through to reset the damn thing that I might end up resetting it for several cycles. I hope it has enough smarts to know that a second reset should be ignored.

    There is no way a properly operating MMI would not schedule a filter change in 30K.

    My codes were as follows:

    8K A1

    16K B16

    24K A12

    And yes you should be using severe service. Well the MMI should be using the severe service.

    I wonder if somehow yours got reset prior to getting to the B service, thus you never saw anything but A service.

    And apparently we have yet another dealer yacking that 30000 mile service crap when Honda says to use the MMI.

    The oil filter is changed at each oil change. Think we'll do all the visual inspections we can and let the local dealer do the rest. That yacking dealer is the same one where the service "advisor" got really in my face about changing oil every 3,000 miles - which is the very reason I don't care about going back to them. Oh yeah, somehow the service book was not in the vehicle and I had to ask them for one. What they did was simply pull one from another vehicle file, draw a line through the info and write my vehicle info. Did not make me a happy camper at that point.

    To my knowledge only a dealer has done any reset of the MM so who knows what happened. Thanks for the info.

    I DIY'd all that stuff yesterday...for about $35.

    also inspected/lubricated the rear brake caliper sliders (they seize up from road salt), adjusted the valve clearance, and changed my manual transmission oil.

    Still have to replace the brake fluid (it's been three years)
