Car maintenance lights do not go on after a certain mileage but rather for problems which the car sensors can detect such as bad oil that needs to be changed.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: my 2006 honda odyssey won't start...2 days ago I

it sounds like that, if after installing the battery, it ran and started good, then this tells me it run until it drained the battery, so this tells me theres a charging problem, make sure the belt is on and then take a good look at the alternator and battery connections,then check the alternator output to see if its charging, it should put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts with engine running, if it doesnt then replace battery,you can also check for power at the alternator and other tests but i dont want to confuse you, a good thing to do is when removed just to double check have the parts store test it for you, it sounds like a bad alternator, hope this is helpful, good luck.

yes. you can go some place else and get it done cheaper. the dealer charges by the hourly rate that the book says the job takes to do. if the belt breaks you could damage the engine...

Thanks for the info... that fixed the problem with the VSA light going on. The error code had nothing to do with the VSA system. Error code said I was low on oil. The dealer I brought it to said the VSA system will not work when you are low on oil. When the VSA warning light comes on, you loose 80% of your engine power because of it. They changed the oil and I have not had the VSA warning light go on since.

2004 acura tl 6speed standard. VSA light/triangle light/parking brake light come on.


your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction

I have a 2008 Honda accord and a yellow light is on that's a triangle with exclamation point in it and a yellow light that says VSA is on what do they mean


2 seconds on any search engine will give you the answer to all of this. Buuuut...VSA:Vehicle Stability Assist.

The indicator light with the triangle staying on permanently is telling you that stability
assist is NOT currently active. It has either been manually disabled via
a button inside the cabin which is probably labeled..."VSA"(real confusing stuff
here), OR the system is malfunctioning due to a mechanical or
electrical problem and therefore is not functional. I also see that your CEL (Check Engine Light) is on. The light on the left, below the other two. See a service shop or the Honda dealer for a diagnosis of the specific problem(s). This could also be a byproduct of a transmission or wheel-speed-sensor issue which many stability control systems need the data from to determine the relative speeds of each wheel and decide the proper action to take to achieve optimal traction. The transmission would obviously be a worst case scenario but I\'ve heard this combination of lights being a symptom of a bad tranny before in a couple Hondas. Best case scenario you or another driver accidentally hit the VSA toggle button. Check the dash for this button and press it. Again, if that does not fix the issue take the vehicle to a reputable technician.

My honda accord VSA light is flashing


I had this problem on a Ridgeline and did just about everything trying to avoid taking it to the dealership. VSA stands for Vehicle Stablility Assist and if your light is flashing then you'll probably need to take it to the dealer and have the system checked for problems and reset. I don't know of any mechanics with the software that Honda has for this system.

The yellow triangle with an exclamation point is lit up - what does this mean?


The Vehicle Stability Assist system is turned off. 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.

You need to find the VSA button on the dash and push it, this will activat the VSA and turn off the yellow light.

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.

I can’t be much help on this one (too new for my experience), but your manual will say this (which probably isn’t all that helpful either).
The vehicle stability assist (VSA) system helps to stabilize the vehicle during cornering if the vehicle turns more or less than desired. It also assists you in maintaining traction while accelerating on loose or slippery road surfaces. It does this by regulating the engine’s output and by selectively applying the brakes.
When VSA activates, you may notice that the engine does not respond to the accelerator in the same way it does at other times. There may also be some noise from the VSA hydraulic system. You will also see the VSA activation indicator blink.
The VSA system cannot enhance the vehicle’s driving stability in all situations and does not control your vehicle’s entire braking system. It is still your responsibility to drive and corner at reasonable speeds and to leave a sufficient margin of safety.
On touring models you will also see a ‘‘CHECK VSA SYSTEM’’ message on the multiinformation display if there is a problem with the VSA system.
Without VSA, your vehicle still has normal braking and cornering ability, but it does not have VSA traction and stability enhancement.
The VSA system automatically turns on every time you start the engine, even if you turned it off the last time you drove the vehicle.
I’d get on the Honda people about the problem, especially since you just got the car. I would think that the alarming sounds you are hearing have to do with the unit working the brakes when it shouldn't be, but that's a guess.
Hope this helps some.

VSA CHECK ENG LIGHT COMES ON


Take your vehicle to a parts store and have them run a diagnostic on it. It will tell you what code came up and that will give you a good start.
