With that transparency in mind, we understand that some aspects of caring for your Acura brand vehicle can be confusing, especially when it comes to the unique Acura service code system. When your maintenance messages pop up, do you know what they mean?

Acura uses a number of numeric codes under their "maintenance due" message to indicate which services are required, and sometimes our customers need a little help understanding what the codes mean. For your reference, the two main codes you'll see are:

  1. A. Which means the vehicle requires a routine oil change.
  2. B. Means the vehicle needs an oil change, as well as a slew of other maintenance tasks, including a brake inspection and fluid level check.

There are also a number of useful sub codes your vehicle may display, including:

1. Tire rotation

2. Replace components of the air cleaner

3. Replace transmission fluid

4. Replace spark plugs and timing belt, inspect water pump

5. Replace engine coolant

6. Replace rear differential fluid
