Dashboard lights flashing. all of them.

Hi the dashboard lights of my 2005 Honda CRV suddenly started flashing. The ABS, Brake, Battery, VSA all of them are flashing while driving. I asked the dealer he told me it was the battery I got it replaced but it did not stop, now he tells me it is the dashboard and I need to get that replaced. The whole setup that he wants to replace is $1800...

I am sure they are not able to locate the problem please help.

I have a 2004 Honda and it had the flickering lights for two weeks, my husband said not to worry about it because the car was running fine. Today the car died while I was driving in the middle of the street. I had it tolled to a Honda dealer and they replaced the battery, the lights flickered again when they turned it on and they said that I would need to return to have that looked at. The car ran fine on the hour drive home, without the lights flickering. I am unsure what to do at this point. I do not want to invest a lot of money into the car as I plan to trade it, in March. Would the flickering lihts cause the battery to go dead? What else can the flickering lights cause?

I work for honda and have seen this often. Mostly on the newer vehicles (2008 and newer). we have always fixed this by replacing the insterment cluster. expensive yes but always fixed it. it in itself is a seperate computer so when it is replaced it will need to be initalized through the HDS

Vsa and abs lights on for 2005 honda crv


Check to make sure that your ABS wheel sensor is bolted firmly to the hub and that the wire that comes from it is plugged in properly. sometimes they look like they are plugged in but are not fully locked in.

Why is the Vsa and abs staying on in 2005 honda crv?


Hi did you check your tire pressures and brake fluid level? That would be where I would start to look. If you have changed your tires or adjusted your tires you may need to reset your VSA.
Else you may have a speed sensor issue.

What does the warning light of a yellow triangle and an exclamation point mean


Standard Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA ®) with Traction Control and Brake Assist Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is an electronic stability control system that works in conjunction with the Pilot's drive-by-wire throttle and its 4-channel ABS systems to enhance controllability while the vehicle is accelerating, braking, cornering or when the driver makes a sudden maneuver. VSA functions by applying brake force to one or more wheels independently while also managing the throttle, ignition and fuel systems to help the vehicle maintain the driver's intended path of travel.

The VSA system constantly analyzes data from seven sensors that monitor wheel and vehicle speed, steering input, lateral G forces and yaw rate. It compares the driver's control inputs with the vehicle's actual response. Whenever the actual response falls outside of a predetermined acceptable range, VSA intervenes with a corrective action.


For instance, if VSA detects an oversteer condition, the system may apply braking force to the outside front and rear wheels to counteract the unintended yawing effect. In the event of understeer, VSA may apply braking to the inside rear wheel while reducing engine power to help return the car to its intended course. VSA also provides a limited-slip differential effect for the front wheels by applying braking force to a slipping wheel, thereby redirecting driving force to the wheel with more traction.

There is a button on the lower left part of the dashboard that says "VSA". Push it and the triangle will dissappear (this should only be turned off if you are using a spare tire that is smaller than the rest of the tires).

Good luck.

2006 CRV - VSA light and triangle are lit? What


The vsa and check engine light cam on because their is a fault in the system that needs to be looked at.To be on the safe side i would check the oil and transmission fluid .
Try doing a reset. Disconnect battery for a minute, this will clear the code ( light ). If the light comes back then take it auto zone or dealer to have the code read.
You can have the codes read for free at your local parts store like auto zone.
Have them scan it and let me know what the codes are.

2006 Honda crv, vsa, abs, and triangle light are permanently on


You are talking about the VSA activation indicator (triangle with exclamation point in the middle):
This indicator has three functions:

It comes on as a reminder that you have turned off the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system.

It flashes when VSA is active.

It comes on along with the VSA system indicator (the rectangle with VSA in it) if there is a problem with the VSA system.

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and when the ignition switch is turned to the START (III) position.

Hope this helps you understand the problem.
