Question about 2006 Honda Odyssey
Unable to drive more than 20miles, not sure what the issue was? Is it safe to drive to dealer? Should I tow the van?
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.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

Testimonial: "Great fix "
SOURCE: why is VSA light on when driving
Have you not tried to find out why or checked for codes
Any dash light indicates a vehicle system failure, that
needs to be found & repaired,don't just keep driving it
