or how about the FSM or wiki. (see design here, )
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Pilot

i think it uses the ABS speed sensor to detect slip
and then help you drive when stuck.

My check engine light and vtm light are on in my 2008 Honda Pilot I checked the codes it's saying the egr valve is bad would that cause the Vtm light to come on to


Yes, the VTM-4 module will light up.

Here's the deal; when you manually turn on the Variable Torque Management-4 system, the light to the console switch is illuminated- letting you know that the vehicle is in traction control mode- and it is functioning properly.

However, if you did not manually activate the VTM, and your cruising along under normal driving conditions, but you start experiencing engine problems, like when the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve starts to malfunction, this malfunction will cause the engine to misfire and lose engine power.

When this loss of engine power occurs, the VTM perceives that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction to the car's drive line (axle and wheels)- so it triggers the light to go on.

The triggering of the VTM could also happen when the idle speed control valve malfunctions.

So once you have the EGR valve replaced, the codes on the OBD module should be cleared; the check engine light will turn off; and the VTM system light will turn off too.

Transmission Fault code 17


a real DTC code.
17 , 94 Accord
the means VSS is dead, vehical speed sensor (miles per hour)
so , that begs the question is the speedometer dead or odometer
dead or acting funny IN ANY WAY?
is this an A/T Car or M/T car, both have VSS, so... cant answer.
Auto or stick, ill pretend, AUTO.
VSS moves all over the place, in all cars. all models and all years.
on this car, its odd.
quote FSM:
Accords and Preludes use an external sensor mounted on top of the power steering speed sensor in the engine compartment. The power steering speed sensor is gear-driven and controls the steering boost in relation to the speed of the vehicle. An electric pulser unit is mounted on top of this unit and is coupled to it by a small shaft. The motion from the lower unit is transferred to the upper unit; the resultant electrical signal is sent to the appropriate control units.

most cars old use the speedometer VSS sensor inside
on newer cars 1996 (on avg) the sensor is on the tail shaft. and in speedo.
on very new cars there are 3 VSS.... (dont ask)

on my 96 car, the tranny VSS can fail and then FALL back to the
SPEEDO head. and tranny still shifts but is funky,
the FSM covers all this, i recommend getting one, to understand
how it all works.

your car has and electronic speedometer
the VSS orange wire , sends speed data to the PCM, TCM, cruise.
the PCM then sets the speedo dial, and uses this info to run TCM
controls to the transmission.
your orange wire signal is dead or flaky.

Can a different computer be used on a charger 2010 that will affect the door locks to no function


Yes, because virtually all the electric functions are controlled electronically. Cars today must have thier computors programed to the specific components (or component package) installed on your vehical .

Vtm-4 light on


Whenever 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 problem(s)

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

Check engin light yellow is on


When the Check Engine/Service Engine Soon light (Varies by make) is turned on the computer control unit (called the ECM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. You will need to get the systems Electronic control module tested for the faults codes it stores when the check engine light is turned on. This requires the use of a tool called a scanner, it is specific to your car make.

WHAT IS VTM-4 LIGHT?


VTM-4 LIGHT is the 4x4 option you can use when your in the auto shift gears 1 and 2. When you put the shifter in 1 or 2 gear, you can push the VTM-4 button on dash and you will engage the 4 wheel drive constently. If you switch out of 1st or 2nd gear it will disengage automatically. The VTM-4 also works in reverse gear. Hope this helps.

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.
