SOURCE: CEL Error Code p2227

P2227 is thrown for barometric pressure circuit range/performance error. I'm researching what causes it since I have the same thing on my turbocharged Accord.

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.

SOURCE: 2006 Honda crv, vsa, abs, and triangle light are

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.

SOURCE: 2007 Honda Pilot VSA Stays on with the Triangle

A hazard warning could just mean an oxy sensor...I would inspect the vehicle ft. to back ...check brakes and all ...make sure all vacumn hoses and plugs /wires /and brakes are good.Then disconnect the negative battery cable to reset the system....If it comes back on it is probably just an O2 sensor going bad....meaning oxygen sensor...this is an air fuel mixture sensor which is common to go bad on all cars and trucks......No big deal....Hope this helps ....Metalpoet

Vsa indicator light stays on after installing wheel bearing


Hello there
First of all, with the VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist) light showing on the dash (marked VSA) it means that particular system has a problem or the push on/off switch located on the lower left portion of the dashboard and above the drivers left knee, has been pushed, turning that system off.

If you push the VSA button and the dash lamp goes out, then you're all set.
If the lamp remains on, you need to have the system checked by your Honda dealer or an independant shop who is experienced and knowledgable regarding this Honda system.

I hope this information is of assistance to you,

2008 Honda Ridgeline VSA warning light


I have a 2014 Ridgeline SE with 8,900 miles.
Says low brake oil but it's full, and VSA is messed up.
I say it's a VSA computer program problem.

I have a 2008 Honda accord and a yellow light is on that's a triangle with exclamation point in it and a yellow light that says VSA is on what do they mean


2 seconds on any search engine will give you the answer to all of this. Buuuut...VSA:Vehicle Stability Assist.

The indicator light with the triangle staying on permanently is telling you that stability
assist is NOT currently active. It has either been manually disabled via
a button inside the cabin which is probably labeled..."VSA"(real confusing stuff
here), OR the system is malfunctioning due to a mechanical or
electrical problem and therefore is not functional. I also see that your CEL (Check Engine Light) is on. The light on the left, below the other two. See a service shop or the Honda dealer for a diagnosis of the specific problem(s). This could also be a byproduct of a transmission or wheel-speed-sensor issue which many stability control systems need the data from to determine the relative speeds of each wheel and decide the proper action to take to achieve optimal traction. The transmission would obviously be a worst case scenario but I\'ve heard this combination of lights being a symptom of a bad tranny before in a couple Hondas. Best case scenario you or another driver accidentally hit the VSA toggle button. Check the dash for this button and press it. Again, if that does not fix the issue take the vehicle to a reputable technician.

There a yellow triangle light on dash


This triangle might be the warning light that the traction control system is switched off. to switch traction control back on again, locate the button to the lower right hand side of the steering wheel, down beside the headlamp levelling switch. The button should read VSA OFF. With the engine running press this button and the lamp should go out. Note that in slippery conditions when the front wheels start to spin this triangle will flash as the traction control kicks in. Hope this helps. Stuartie.

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.

2007 honda odyssey warning light


That isn't the light for low tire pressure. Low tire pressure will have what looks like a tire- flat. It is your VSA someone probably hit the button and accidentally. look to the left of your steering wheel there is a button that says VSA push it and see if it turns it off. I notice that this post is pretty old, so you may already have gotten the answer from your dealer, but I'm posting in case someone has the same problem later on.
