Who did the work? The speed sensor in one of the new hubs could be bad or during the insulation one of the pins got damaged. I would suggest to look at ABS system, scan for any active code/s, take a look at live data and see if a relearn procedure is needed because of the installation of the new hubs. But you will probably find that the fault has to do with an ABS wheel speed sensor. Good luck.

Trouble code 84-1 sensor logic failure


Red the oper ,guide, yet, or the FSM.
or at Alldata.com ?
why not get it serviced? if not say why not? so we can respond
in the correct way.. (you just want a wild guess?) what?
Vehicle Stability Assist


ok, so there are 2 possibles. (macro viewed)
  1. Driving wrong, or skidding.
  2. or a malfunction of the system.
only you know the truth of above.!
did you even read the operators guide?
how the lamp acts? VSA.? off, on, blinks, etc?
is this a post where there are no dealers or ASE mech, availible?
or no FSM? fixing modern cars FSM free is a huge, fail mode...
FIRST
if its a failure get the system scanned, ABS and PCM and BCM all?!

First of all you need to clear ABS errors
did you see the recall
http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/honda-recalls-182000-vehicles-for-faulty-vehicle-stability-assist-system.html

and guess what, bad brakes, make ABS fail and so will VSA.
in that order. so... SCAN IT ! then wonder. (all cars 1988 to now)


here is how it works ( it uses ABS) quote:

Vehicle Stability Assist

The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) was introduced by Honda to its vehicles in 1997. The term is Honda's version of Electronic Stability Control (ESC),[22] an active safety feature developed to correct oversteer and understeer by using several sensors to detect loss of steering control and traction while simultaneously braking individual wheels to help the vehicle regain stability.

How VSA Works

VSA combines the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control System (TCS) with side-slip control to help stabilize the vehicle whenever it turns more or less than desired. ABS is an existing system that prevents the vehicle's wheels from locking up under braking, especially in slippery road conditions. For the ABS to work, the system relies on the computed input from a steering angle sensor to monitor the driver's steering direction, the yaw sensor to detect the momentum of which the wheels are steering (yaw rate), and a lateral acceleration (g-force) sensor to signal the changes in speed. At the same time, the TCS will prevent wheel slip during acceleration while the side-slip control stabilizes cornering when the rear or front wheels slip sideways (during oversteer and understeer).
Controlling oversteer - During an oversteer, the rear end of the vehicle will spin out because the rotational speed of the rear wheels exceeds the front wheels. VSA will prevent the vehicle from spinning by braking the outer front wheel to produce an outward moment and stabilize the vehicle.
Controlling understeer - During an understeer, the front wheels loses traction during cornering due to excessive throttle and causes the speed difference between the left and front wheels to decrease. When the vehicle steers outwards from the intended trajectory, VSA intervenes by reducing engine power and if necessary, also braking the inner front wheel.

2007 honda accord. VSA and ABS lights stay lit when the car is on. lights do not blink and the switch to turn on VSA doesn't do anything when pressed now.


VSA and ABS use anti-lock brake sensors to complete the calculation.

The first thing to check is to make sure all 4 of the ABS sensors are clean.

Go to your local car wash and clean the wheels first.
KEY OFF / then reconnect the VSA sensor.

Pull the OBDII and email it to me.

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,

VSA and ABS lights on in my honda CR-v


wheel bearings could have been installed incorrectly(backwards). The reluctor ring is part of the bearing seal assy and the the abs wheel sensor is not reading it.

Vsa and abs lights on for 2005 honda crv


Check to make sure that your ABS wheel sensor is bolted firmly to the hub and that the wire that comes from it is plugged in properly. sometimes they look like they are plugged in but are not fully locked in.

How do i repair the vsa unit on a 2006 honda accord?


I found this online. replacing the EGR valve would be a good thing to check as a VSA repair would be really expensive, it doesn't make sense that these should go bad, and it does not seem like it is something you can do yourself.

'This is going to sound funny, but your problem is not with the VSA. Here's what the dealer is missing in their diagnosis.

the way the Vehicle Stability Assist system works is that when a loss of traction is sensed (when one wheel is spinning faster than the other) then the control for the VSA starts to cut out engine cylinders to reduce the power to the wheel until traction is restored. When the control unit enables the VSA the exclamation point icon comes on and it will stay on until the engine is turned off.

Now for the twist--when the engine has a misfire that causes the engine to lose power then the VSA system "thinks" power is being reduced to restore traction and it puts the exclamation point icon on. So in essence, the VSA is being fooled into thinking that the system is enabled when in reality the problem is one of a reduction of engine power.

I have seen this numerous times on the Accords and Pilots. Almost always the problem is with the EGR valve. That doesn't mean that it is in your case, but my experience is that it usually is. Couple that with the history of EGR valve problems on the Honda V-6 and the the odds are strong that's what your problem is. However, anything that could cause a loss of power or misfire in an engine, such as an ignition coil breaking down or bad fuel could cause this problem.

In most States the things that can cause this problem are covered under a 3 year 50000 mile emissions warranty. I'd ask the dealer to do the diagnosis for an engine misfire and see where that goes.'

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.
