No--- it is a system fault that has to be diagnosed

When you turn on the key, all the dash lights should be
observed & lite ( use your owners manual to get familiar
with them)

After the engine starts-- ALL dash lights-- go off, or you have
a problem with the OBD 2 System, on any vehicle from 1996 on

ANY TRANS related codes or lights you STOP USING IT

IMMEDIATELY

Transmissions are VERY VERY Expensive Repairs & happen
to way too many people, because they won't give up driving the vehicles & ruin then in a heart beat,ten miles is all it takes

The vtm4 light went on( I think by itself ) will not disengage the malfunction light is also on now air & heat works one day then dont work for a day or two how do I unlock the switch ?


Honda Guy had this to say;
When operating normally your VTM-4 light means the vehicle is in traction control mode. HOWEVER, if the light just came on when you were driving it is an indication that you have a problem with the engine that is causing the VTM system to think the vehicle is in traction control mode because of a loss of engine power or misfire.

Here's how that happens: on a Honda, the way the vehicle restores traction is by reducing engine power to the point where the wheels don't spin as fast and thereby restores traction to a slipping wheel (slipping wheels spin faster than the other wheels). Conversely, when there is a reduction in engine power that is abnormal, the VTM system "thinks" that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction and it triggers the light.

In almost all cases, the light is being triggered by an idle speed control valve malfunction or in some cases by an EGR valve malfunction. It may or may not turn on the check engine light. This problem was fairly common on Pilots in 2004 and 2005 but certainly isn't limited to just those years.

Take the car to a Honda dealer or to a mechanic and have them check for stored codes in your powertrain control module. I think you're going to find that there is a code for an idle speed control valve malfunction or an EGR valve malfunction. The idle speed control valve is warranted for 8 years or 80,000 miles; the EGR for 3 years or 50,000 miles. Your Pilot is probably still in warranty and if so the repairs would be made at no charge

hope that helps

On my 2007 explorer the brake engage when you put the car in drive and the rcs light comes on


Do you mean the RSC light ?
  • Roll stability control (RSC)/interactive vehicle dynamics (IVD)
  • Roll Stability Control (RSC)
    The roll stability control (RSC) system monitors the roll-rate sensor and existing stability assist sensors and calculates if the vehicle may be approaching a situation where rollover is probable. If such a situation exists, the RSC system applies preemptive action. When activated, the RSC system adjusts the brake torque at specific wheels in response to direct measurement of the vehicle roll motion. By adjusting brake torque, the system can reduce the cornering forces and, therefore, the total roll moment acting on the vehicle. Systems with RSC have an additional roll-rate sensor located within the sensor cluster and additional programming within the ABS module to help control the vehicle during sudden maneuvers.
    Information from the roll-rate sensor is fed into the ABS module. The computer uses information from the ABS wheel speed sensors, the throttle position sensor, the steering wheel angle, the steering wheel rate of change and a yaw rate sensor that measures the change in vehicle direction. If the computer determines from all these inputs that conditions exist for a potential roll over, the system applies one or more brakes and reduces engine torque to make the vehicle more stable.
    If the event is severe and the driver's foot is not on the brake, the brake pedal moves to apply higher brake forces. A whooshing sound can also be heard from under the instrument panel in an event this severe .
    I strongly suggest you have this vehicle towed to a ASE certified repair shop that knows this system !

    RSC ABS Light on


    I would try unplugging the connector to the ABS Module
    You will have dash lights on, but can use the truck,the brakes
    will work,you just won't have ABS
    Then plug it back in
    If you still have a MIL lamp
    You go to a shop,different one & not a dealer,& ask them to scan for codes in Enhanced Mode & just look at the ABS System Codes/Faults
    Then Google the issue, or look at the shops data base, for
    the proper way to diagnose.
    To say entire system-- is just you not knowing what is going
    on, or what your told,need to be more involved & ask
    more questions & get people to show you & prove to you,
    how they come to any conclusion or fix.
    I found the B1342 code is used for different systems,
    which is odd, & different vehicles,so be careful your looking
    at the correct vehicle,application etc on the internet
    At a shop with the scan tool your looking into the vehicles
    system & can't get that wrong
    Just know that codes do not mean a part failed
    Component testing for failure is required
    At very least do voltage drops on power & ground
    side of any module, using a wiring diagram, before
    throwing electronic parts at something & get it wrong

    I took my middle console apart to fix my new stereo but when I put it back together I forgot which connector was for the rear defrost button. I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar. They all look the same


    I appreciate any ideas that will help me diagnose what is tripping the warning light for the ABS/RSC system. I have a 2008 Explorer, 4x4 drive, with the V6 engine. It has just over 124,000 KM on it.
    The ABS RSC warning light and beeping occurs on occasion as well. If I go really easy on the brakes, all is well.
    I have Inspected all brake pads. They looks ok, . I have also inflated the tires so that they are perfectly equal.
    Both the ABS and the RSC warning lights turn on.When i check with one work shop, they scanned and they found B1342 error code, and they said i need to replace entire ABS system.
    Can anyone help?

    Hyundai Matrix Check Engine and ABS lights come on


    Your ABS likely has a very dirty reluctor (can happen if the teeth get mud or brake dust in them) or possibly one of your speed sensors is starting to weaken and is close to failure. The proper diagnostic sequence is to have the trouble codes pulled from ABS and Engine modules and determine what the computers SAW when the lights were turned on. Most likely based on description, your ABS will have a speed sensor code, and your engine and/or trans module will have a transmission related trouble code. Very few transmission codes are things you can service at home, usually youll see solenoid or gear slippage codes...mostly those require internal repairs that often require removal of the valve body or rebuild of the transmission.
    Make sure you check fluid level, that is the most common cause of transmission slippage codes, however if fluid is full, it indicates that unless the fluid has failed completely, you may need transmission repairs.
