Understanding the Maintenance Minder™ System

The Maintenance Minder™ system in your Acura ILX is important because it lets you know when it's time to schedule your service. It's a diagnostic system that basically knows when certain vehicle components require attention from a professional technician. You simply have to keep your eyes out for the Maintenance Minder™ system to go off. But when it does, it'll display a code that is telling you where the focus of your service should be-all you need to know is what the codes mean.

Your Acura ILX Maintenance Minder™ Codes

  • Code A: This code is pretty easy to remember because it simply means that it's time for an oil change and an oil filter replacement. Typically, this code appears every 8,000-10,000 miles.
  • Code B: When Code B appears, not only will your Acura ILX require an oil change and filter replacement, but it'll also require an inspection of your brakes, tie rod ends, steering gearbox, boots, suspension components, driveshaft boots, brake lines, fluid levels, exhaust system, and fuel lines and connections.
  • Code 1: This code tells you that it's time to rotate your tires.
  • Code 2: When this code appears, it means that you'll have to replace your air cleaner element and your dust and pollen filter. This code also tells you that you need to have your drive belt inspected.
  •  Code 3: During this service, you'll need to have your transmission fluid replaced.
  • Code 4: If you see this code appear on your Maintenance Minder™ system, it's telling you that it's time to replace your spark plugs. You should also have your valve clearance inspected.
  • Code 5: This is the final code of the Maintenance Minder™ system, and it's telling you that you should have your engine coolant replaced.
