SOURCE: 2006 air bag lite blinks and stays on 2006 e150

When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 hour prior.

SOURCE: the check engine lights and vtm-4 lights of my 2003 honda pilot alway stays on after i went for an automatic car wash. and after a day or two mostly if i ran it on the higheay check engine and vtm-4 l

Apparently what has most likely happened is you were on a wet or ice road and may have lost traction on the road. You may have never even noticed, but your vehicle did. The vehicle compensated for the road condition & probably revved the engine a little to low, which probably turned on the check engine light. This is a scenario only.

The best way to find out what's wrong is to have the computer scanned for trouble codes. The trouble code will point to the problem. Several auto parts stores will do this for free or rent you a scanner so you can scan it yourself. If the code isn't obvious or you need more help you can come back here and I'll walk you through figuring it out.

It also could be you need to change the rear differential fluid. There was a TSB for this vehicle. I am not sure if your vehicle falls into it. You could check with the dealer as well.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

Unknown operation of the front diff.


please ask again.
are you asking a driveline question, and is vastly complex. read it.
awd?
off the wiki, , does this help,?
the Ridgeline is powered by a transversely mounted J35A9, (2006-2008) J35Z5, (2009-present) 3.5 L V6 with a five speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive system operates in front-wheel drive mode under normal conditions and automatically transfers power to either rear wheel via a locking differential when it senses a loss of traction in the front. The VTM-4 system can be locked in first, second or reverse gears at speeds under 18 mph (29 km/h).
The VTM-4 lock (rear diff lock) works in full rear power mode up until 6 mph (9.7 km/h) then it gradually transitions to power to the front and releases the VTM-4 lock at 18 mph (29 km/h)
.

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)

Honda ridgeline b6


From Owner's Link:

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

Replace engine oil and oil filter
Rotate tires
Inspect front and rear brakes
Check parking brake adjustment
Inspect tie rod ends, steering gear box, and boots
Inspect suspension components
Inspect driveshaft boots
Inspect brake hoses and lines (including ABS)
Inspect all fluid levels and condition of fluids
Inspect exhaust system#
Inspect fuel lines and connections#

Adjust the valves during services A, B, 1, 2, or 3 if they are noisy.

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).

09 Ridgeline showing VTM-4 and Check engine light


Hi, An '09 should be under warranty or I'd least take it in and 'nicely' ask that it be covered under warranty.

This LINK may help w/the VTM-4 info...but not sure about the EGR.

Have a warninig sign comes on . It says VT4. What


If it says VTM-4 that is your VTM-4 indicator:

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to ON (II). If this indicator comes on at any other time, there is a problem in the 4WD system. Have your vehicle checked by a dealer.

The Variable Torque Management 4WD System (VTM-4) automatically transfers varying amounts of engine torque to the rear wheels under lower traction conditions.

You can try the following:

To Disengage the VTM-4 Lock, do one of the following:

1. Press the VTM-4 Lock button.

2. Move the shift lever to D or D .

3. Turn the ignition to LOCK (0).

The VTM-4 Lock will temporarily disengage when the vehicle speed exceeds 18 mph (30 km/h). It will automatically engage again as the speed slows below 18 mph (30 km/h). The button light will remain on.

Hope this helps you understand the light. If not, leave a comment and I will try to help you further.

4 wheel drive lock button does not work or indicator light button


The VTM-4 button will only "lock in" when you have the gear select lever in reverse, D1 or D2. If you accelerate past 18 mph the power levels will shift more to front wheels to reduce damage to rear differential. As far as the heat is concerned, have you set the heat to floor while out of the truck and checked for air flow with your hand? It doesn't seem to hit directly at your feet, more like mid-calf.
