no communication between VSA module and ECM, Check wiring, fuses, or vsa module. If vsa module it may be costly. VSA is the ABS/Trac control. Can you pull codes from vsa are the lights for vsa (ABS) coming on in the dash?

Have your ABS system checked by a dealer, it works with those systems and she may have damaged a sensor. The dealer can plug in a scanner and figure out which one.

VSA shows on my dash and the vehicle seems to remain in the same gear. It can't accelerate after the car has been slowed down. The error message can only be reset when the engine is switched off...

"VSA" stands for "Vehicle Stability Assist". This system has four indicators: The ABS indicator, the VSA indicator, the VSA activation indicator and the Brake System indicator.
When the system detects a malfunction, it illuminates the appropriate indicators. Depending on the failure, it determines which indicators to illuminate.
These lights illuminating do not necessarily indicate a failure in the VSA system itself. The VSA is only PART of the computer network in your vehicle. Information is shared among several control units. Certain malfunctions in the engine control or transmission control systems can cause the VSA to be disabled and the warning lamps will illuminate.
The only way to determine the cause of the problem with your vehicle is to perform a computer network scan to find out the nature of the failure and which control module requested the VSA to be disabled.

My 2005 Odessay Touring van has a VSA light that has gone on about ten times today. Each time I have to turn off the ignition and turn it back on in order to make it go official. However only once did the...

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.

My vsa system indicator and vsa activation indicator light came on and it will not go off even when I turn off and on my honda- what does that mean?

It's hard to said what it is without a VSA code, but the VSA system monitor the rotation of you tires. Check and make sure you have the same tire size for all four tires. If the tires are not spinning at the same ratio could cause the VSA light to come. It could be a bad sensor or even the VSA modulator itself. It's hard to said. Good luck

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.

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.
