Question about 2008 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? :(

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

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

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!

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
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
