SOURCE: I have a 2009 Honda pilot. has a tapping noise when in reverse.

VTM 4 is a traction control system designed for better traction and fuel efficiency. I'd get it back to the dealer ASAP. There seems to be a coil malfunction in the rear axle. I'd make them fully check out the rear axle in addition to checking out the coil sensors themselves. Best of luck to you!

SOURCE: Looking to replace honda pilot knock sensor

These knock sensors are hard to get into. If thats a V6 it is underneath the intake manifold. make sure you cover the intake port when you take it apart, so a screw or a bolt don't accidentally drops in there.

Immediately take your car to a dealership. You run the risk of a major catestrpohic component failure. I wish I offer you a better alternative. Best of luck!

My 2007 Honda pilot is idling rough and the vtm-4 light came on and engine light came on....what is this and how much will it cost? Thanks


You'll need to take it somewhere (auto parts store) to get the codes checked to proceed. The code will tell you or a mechanic what to check not what to replace.

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.

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)

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 light...


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

We where parked outside an mall and we started up our Honda Pilot 2004 then the car started shaking like if a pipe or a tube was clogged. Then when we started to move The VTM-4 light turned on red aswell...


you may have purchased some bad fuel only. it happens alot. pay attention to the fuel that you purchase as hondas are known for rejection of ethynol based fuel. or you bought bad gas that had water in it. be loyal to the place that you purchase your fuel! if it sounds to good to be true,well you know. the best fuel is 93 octane at the place that you can trust to sell 93octane right? i can't recommend a certain buisness,but oil spills are never good. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com.

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.

Warning lights srewdriver,vtm-4 and engine light are on


Bring it to a dealer immediately. VTM-4 means the 4WD is off, possibly because of the engine line or vice versa.
