Service codes, Can you decifer them here?

I have a service code on the MM " B16".
I know that is for Oil change... But I was wondering if it is for the VTM-4 also or not.
Does anyone have a code cheat sheet?

TIA
Cheers!

Thanks... Just read the Manual also.

Same as the speed of light as when the light leaves dark arrives! :

My OBDII code reader doesn't work on the 09 Touring. It is the small handheld one which works fine on my 04 TSX. Anyone have a similar experience or is mine just too cheap to work. I bought it off a Mac Tools truck a few years ago as something quick and very portable having removed my cat in swap for a hi-flow one and needing to reset codes. A simple anti-fouler fixed that issue, but none-the-less been curious why my reader doesn't work on the Pilot.

Almost certainly for the same reason my old (2002-ish) code reader won't work on my new Pilot or my wife's 2007 MINI Cooper, I think the new cars do their OBD communication over a CAN Bus interface rather than one of the other older protocols. Any new-ish CAN compliant code reader/resetter should work just fine.

Fairly exhaustive detail available here and a quick read suggests that CAN Bus is the new federal standard, so it looks like getting a new reader should be a fairly long last investment. Might have to do that.

I have that exact same reader, the ET-80. Have you used yours with a PC interface?

Actually, mine is the ET50, although it doesn't look like the current one online. It is black and 2 button, but it has a full LCD screen and covers more than what is mentioned on MAC tools currently. Not sure I understand what you mean by a PC interface.

There's software that will allow it to interface with a PC. I'm just not sure exactly what it does when the software is used with it.....didn't know if you had any experience with that.
