2008 TL - Maintenance Minder General Information
Multi-infromation Display
The maintenance minder is an important feature of the multi-information display. Based on engine operating conditions and accumulated engine revolutions, the Acura TL's
onboard computer (ECM/PCM) calculates the remaining engine oil life. The system also displays the remaining engine oil life along with the code for other scheduled
maintenance items needing service.

4.
When the ignition switch is ON (II), and the remaining engine oil life is 0 %, the maintenance system message ''SERVICE PAST DUE'' is displayed along with the
same maintenance item code(s).
5.
If the indicated maitenance is not done, the ''SERVICE PAST DUE'' message shows a negative mileage, for example ''-10,'' on the display. If the negative
mileage is between 0 and -9, the message is displayed for only a few seconds when the ignition switch is ON (II). The negative mileage (A) remains displayed
after the vehicle is driven more than 10 miles (for USA models) or 10 km (for Canada models) after 0 % oil life is reached, and the display cannot be canceled.
This means the indicated maintenance item(s) should have been done more than 10 miles (or 10 km) ago.
Resetting the Maintenance Information Display
NOTE:
z The vehicle must be stopped to reset the display.
z If a required service is done and the display is not reset, or if the maintenance display is reset without doing the service, the system will not show the proper
maintenance timing. This can lead to serious mechanical problems because there will be no accurate record of when the required maintenance is needed.
z The engine oil life and maintenance item(s) can be reset independently only with the HDS.
