    Service Reminder System
    The Service Reminder System is an important feature of the multi-information display. Based on engine operating conditions, the NSX's onboard computer (PCM) calculates the remaining engine oil life. The system also shows the Service Reminder Information Display along with the code(s) for other scheduled maintenance items needing service.

    NOTE: If the vehicle was under some situations where the power was not supplied for a long period of time such as having a 12 volt battery run out, connect the HDS to the vehicle. If not, the Maintenance Schedule may not be displayed with
