Maintenance Main Items for Your Honda CR-V
The main item codes for your Honda CR-V are represented by the letters A and B. Maintenance code A signals that its time for an oil change. The technician may also inspect other parts of the vehicle to ensure that there are no signs of wear or damage.
Maintenance code B also indicates that an oil change and oil filter replacement is needed, but now requires the technicians to inspect specific parts and systems.
To start, your Honda technician will carefully inspect the braking system, including the brake pads, parking brake, hoses, lines, and brake discs. They’ll also check the vehicles suspension system, all fluids, and the exhaust system. A proper inspection of these and other systems is important to look for signs of damage or excessive wear.
The numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 represent the Maintenance Minders subitems. These codes may appear in any combination with or without main item codes. Although your technician will be able to translate these codes for you, here’s a brief overview of what maintenance items each code represents:
Code 1: Tires should be inspected for tread depth and condition and then rotated.
Code 2: The air cleaner element and the dust pollen filter need to be replaced. The position of the drive belt auto-tensioner indicator should be checked along with the overall condition of the drive belt itself.
Code 3: Replace the transmission fluid.
Code 4: Replace the spark plugs and adjust the valve clearance if needed.
Code 5: Replace the engine coolant.
Code 6: If your Honda is equipped with all-wheel drive, the technician will need to place the rear differential fluid.
