Scott all these code will be in your service book and handbook as well.If you haven't got these then contact any Honda dealer for a replacement.

Great, just had an a/b service at Honda and now the newly reset indicator tells me 4500 miles until another service, to change the coolant it seems. if I follow the svrs system I will be at the dealers ever few months! Time to get it turned off and follow the 12month/12 thousand mile traditional way. svrs = cash cow for Honda?

Sorry to bring such an old topic back up.
This system is not very bright, as it has troubles grouping the codes together. E.g. it was showing 5 in 3000km, reset that, it shows 4 in 6000km. Reset that - shows 8 in 6000km. Should've just shown 48 in 6000km... Anyway, I replaced the fuel filter, the coolant now and the air filter was replaced a while ago with the engine oil and oil filter.

Got a question on the code "4". It says fuel filter, check idle speed and replace spark plugs. Is the last point also valid for diesels? As they don't in fact have spark plus, rather glow plugs...

Replace spark plugs would be for petrol only.I don't think this applies to glow plugs on your car but I would check with your dealer.
The reason you get different codes and not all at once is to spread the cost over time as it a variable service reminder.
I've had mine taken off now and gone back to a normal yearly or 12.5k service.

Good feedback and what you can do is get a Honda dealers to turn the function off.
But once its deactivated they cant put this back on so make sure this is what you want.

 My Honda dealers wants £85 + VAT to turn mine off think i'll stick to preeing the reset button.

All dealers should do this free of charge.Get in contact with honda UK and ask the question as I think there pulling a fast one

I tried that they told me they have no control over labour rates but the girl I spoke to just couldn't grasp that maybe its Honda UK that should pay the dealer for this service as its an unwanted feature on the car.

Hi guys.

 

My Accord is now throwing out a reminder code of AB7, which i believe to be:

 

A- Replace engine oil

B- Inspection Service (whatever that is?)

7- Replace Brake Fluid

 

My question is, how do interval services get logged? If memory serves me right only major 12month services get logged in the log book.

There is a separate page in the back of service book that applies to the service reminders

Yes I change mine every 20,000 miles on its second oil change but it is used as a taxi i just reset the thing every time it gets to 3000 miles I'd hate to be a rep or company car guy with that thing flashing up from 3000 miles did Honda have to give so much notice to book your car in for a service lol.

How did you get your K & N ? I asked them 18 months ago & they had no plans to make one so K&N it is then.

I used them back in the late 80's in a fleet of Mercedes trucks doing 100,000 miles a year.
