I assume your '09 came with an owner's manual. It's great to read through it when you have the time, because the Ridgeline is a very different vehicle than most trucks. The "A" code is for the oil change and the "6" is for the rear differential (VTM-4) fluid change. I believe the maintenance minder codes are on or around page 242.

I don't have my manual in front of me, but I believe the "1" is simply tire rotation.

There are tons of info here about maintenance codes. If you're so inclined, you can easily do the maintenance yourself. Lots of pics and how-to-do instructions.

And as an added bonus, pretty significant cost savings too.

See here and here for a couple of examples.

Re: service codes

The Owners manual is your friend. Saying that, I do wish Honda provided a CD ROM. Let's get up to date with the times...

Edited to add, or at least let us buy it for like $5.00...

Re: service codes

You can download it as a PDF and save it. CDROMs are so 1990's.
