Here's the deal; when you manually turn on the Variable Torque Management-4 system, the light to the console switch is illuminated- letting you know that the vehicle is in traction control mode- and it is functioning properly.
However, if you did not manually activate the VTM, and your cruising along under normal driving conditions, but you start experiencing engine problems, like when the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve starts to malfunction, this malfunction will cause the engine to misfire and lose engine power.
When this loss of engine power occurs, the VTM perceives that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction to the car's drive line (axle and wheels)- so it triggers the light to go on.
The triggering of the VTM could also happen when the idle speed control valve malfunctions.
So once you have the EGR valve replaced, the codes on the OBD module should be cleared; the check engine light will turn off; and the VTM system light will turn off too.
possibly the light is coming on due to low oil pressure if you have high miles on the engine usually over 200xxx. try disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes then reconnect that sometimes will reset warning lights. good luck
you may have purchased some bad fuel only. it happens alot. pay attention to the fuel that you purchase as hondas are known for rejection of ethynol based fuel. or you bought bad gas that had water in it. be loyal to the place that you purchase your fuel! if it sounds to good to be true,well you know. the best fuel is 93 octane at the place that you can trust to sell 93octane right? i can't recommend a certain buisness,but oil spills are never good. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com.
When they changed the oil they did not reset the light. The car needs to be told when the oil is changed.
when the warning comes on press the setup button. it should say press reset if new. Press the reset button. It should say if new oil hold reset. Press and hold the reset button until the display changes to oil life set to 100%.
This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II). If this indicator comes on at any other time, there is a problem in the 4WD system. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer. The Variable Torque Management 4WD System (VTM-4) automatically transfers varying amounts of engine torque to the rear wheels under lower traction conditions. You can try the following: To Disengage the VTM-4 Lock, do one of the following: 1. Press the VTM-4 Lock button. 2. Move the shift lever to D or D . 3. Turn the ignition to LOCK (0). The VTM-4 Lock will temporarily disengage when the vehicle speed exceeds 18 mph (30 km/h). It will automatically engage again as the speed slows below 18 mph (30 km/h). The button light will remain on.
Hope this helps you understand the light. If not, leave a comment and I will try to help you further.
if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.
