Diagnosed what & how ?

For the ABS,VSA,etc, they are all abs system issues & you
need to use professional scan tool software to see those
modules & the codes,if any

Then you need factory manuals,cd's or proper reference
material & trouble charts to find a problem thru testing

    I used a professional scan tool, dbo 2 tool.
    No issues came up. I would like to know if its partially the abs speed sensors.

    You have to look up the type of sensor & how to test it,if you can even find that info Your asking for a guess at whether the wheel hub sensors are usually 90% of all abs problems Maybe,it has been for me but I have also found testing that system a problem on some vehicles as they have to be going 22 mph etc just to have an output I have tried voltmeters & scope but that is all you can do to try & learn

    Next would be l to follow the trouble charts or trees in factory material

    Not very old but lots of miles Best to study how the system works

It sounds like when the dashboard was replaced that one or more of your lighting harnesses weren't completely plugged in.

Since your check engine light came on, you now have an error code to help pin it down. I would suggest you take it to an autoparts store and have them read the error codes in your computer. WRITE THEM DOWN IN THE ORDER THEY COME OFF, so you have them. That should give you a starting point for further troubleshooting.

2004 acura tl 6speed standard. VSA light/triangle light/parking brake light come on.


your vsa is vehicle stability assist that works with the abs system, verify brake calipers for proper functioning, sounds like breaks stick and cant return efficiently after breaking, vsa is a traction control light, if both lights remain on without flashing, those systems are disabled due to a problem, scan vehicle for possible abs sensor malfunction
