VSA / PCM error code 126-4 on honda ridgeline

The VSA ,Emergency Brake, VTM-4 and ABS lights are all on on my dashboard while driving. I do not have traction control and I cannot engage my four wheel drive. I put a machine on the diagnostic system and it read: 126-4 F-CAN VSA/PCM error. Can someone please tell me what is needed to fix this problem? :(

SOURCE: 2007 honda ridgeline vibration in the steering wheel

that is definitely not normal,i have been a Honda technician for may years and have seen this problem several times.most Honda dealer have a funky new tire balance that does match balancing with road force,have them match balance the tires and do road force,this will take the heavy point of the tire and the light point of the rim,they will index these points and break down the tire and turn the tire to match the light point of the rim,this will also show any non visible bad tire,there is a roller that comes down on the tire as its being balanced and puts approx 9000 pounds of pressure on tire,and measures any excessive internall run out that is not visible,anything above 40lbs of road force after this procedure is not normal,and the tire is no good,most bigger Honda dealer within any major city should have this machine and will know what you are talking about,good luck,Honda should cover that under warranty,especially if it has low kms,don't take no for an answer,go to customer relations

SOURCE: dashboard lights flashing. all of them.

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

SOURCE: I have a 2009 Honda pilot. has a tapping noise when in reverse.

VTM 4 is a traction control system designed for better traction and fuel efficiency. I'd get it back to the dealer ASAP. There seems to be a coil malfunction in the rear axle. I'd make them fully check out the rear axle in addition to checking out the coil sensors themselves. Best of luck to you!

V0122 (126-4) Permanent DTC F-CAN MALFUNCTION (ECM) PCM - VSA CONTROL MODULE UNIT) but no Service Engine light


no communication between VSA module and ECM, Check wiring, fuses, or vsa module. If vsa module it may be costly. VSA is the ABS/Trac control. Can you pull codes from vsa are the lights for vsa (ABS) coming on in the dash?

My question is on my acura mdx 2003. The left front wheel was worked on and somehow the mechanic damaged the sensor there. I guess the abs sensor. This made the ABS, VSA,VTM-4 and a triangle light came on....


When you clear the codes and the problem has not been fix after 10 miles of driving the warnings return. I am sorry but I am not sure what is causing the indicator lights. Have you looked up all the remaining codes?

Dash lights 2012


wow, 2007 and 2012 in one blue box....
or open the glove box, extract operators guide,
read that page for that lamp, bingo the name and the cause and what to do. lost the manual they are free at honda. or here.

http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/honda/honda-ridgeline-owners-manua/
page 70, read this.... I can RTM, sure can....

quote
VTM-4 lamp (your 4wd?)
This indicator normally comes on for
a few seconds when you turn the
ignition switch to the ON (II)
position. If it comes on at any other
time, there is a problem in the 4WD
system. Take the vehicle to your
dealer to have it checked.
If the indicator blinks while driving,
the VTM-4 fluid temperature is too
high. Pull to the side of the road
when it is safe, shift to Park, and let
the engine idle until the indicator
goes out.
Continuing to drive with the VTM-4
indicator blinking may cause serious

damage to the system. (end page70)

if really DIY guy?
the then the FSM elaborates this to no end.

buy the FSM and read that. (most things on most newer cars are anything but simple)

Maintenance Minder 6 Scheduled Maintenance
Recommended service for your 2006 Honda Ridgeline:

Replace VTM-4 rear differential fluid: Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher level of mechanical (shear) stress to fluid or frequently fully loaded. This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the differential fluid changed at 7,500 miles (12,000 km), then every 15,000 miles (24,000 km).

Vtm-4 light on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)
