It's for the 'vehicle stability assist' system.(aka electronic stability control) This lights up if you have turned the vsa system off. If it flashes, it means the system is on and operating to help control the stability of your car (making adjustments in engine and braking). If it comes on w/ VSA indicator light at the same time, it indicates you have a problem w/ the system. Sorry u didn't get the manual, it's amazing how many people throw them out! countrycurt0

It may be as simple as your oil condition or oil level. If you have poor oil in your engine the VTEC system will not operate properly and when RPMs reach 2800 or so it will buck. If everything checks okay with the oil have the code checked for your check engine light/VSA light.

You are talking about the VSA activation indicator (triangle with exclamation point in the middle):
This indicator has three functions:

It comes on as a reminder that you have turned off the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system.

It flashes when VSA is active.

It comes on along with the VSA system indicator (the rectangle with VSA in it) if there is a problem with the VSA system.

This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and when the ignition switch is turned to the START (III) position.

Hope this helps you understand the problem.

SOURCE: 2006 CRV - VSA light and triangle are lit? What

The vsa and check engine light cam on because their is a fault in the system that needs to be looked at.To be on the safe side i would check the oil and transmission fluid .
Try doing a reset. Disconnect battery for a minute, this will clear the code ( light ). If the light comes back then take it auto zone or dealer to have the code read.
You can have the codes read for free at your local parts store like auto zone.
Have them scan it and let me know what the codes are.

VSA,ABS,Brake,and triangle w/exclamation constantly on


Vsa,abs,and brake all work off of the same sensor. You have a problem with one of the following system. Vsa vehicle stability assist, abs anti lock brakes, or the brakes themselves. My guess is either the abs or vsa

My 2007 honda pilot while running the vsa light come on and then the engine light come on and the lose power


My 2007 Honda pilot did the same thing. I took the above advice regarding the oil condition (mine was obviously poor, although I change it every 3 mos) and had it changed immediately. The engine light, VSA light, and the triangle with ! all cleared and the vehicle began to run properly again. No problems since. Thank you to Shawn Bruns!!

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.

Wat does the exclamation point in the dashboard mean?


the exclamation point inside a triangle is the VSA activation indicator or Vehicle Stability Assist system indicator. If the indicator stays on, have the VSA checked at the dealer.
