SOURCE: 2007 honda ridgeline vibration in the steering wheel

I used to work for honda and found this issue only once. After checking the driveshaft, differential, and tires, i found that the drive axles were the problem with vibration in the steering or upon acceleration.

Bring it to a dealer immediately. VTM-4 means the 4WD is off, possibly because of the engine line or vice versa.

SOURCE: how to change a serpentine belt on 2007 Honda

You'll need a 1/2 inch socket wrench to fit on the inlet of the idler pulley. You'll also need an extension bar to lengthen the socket wrench because the wrench alone won't be long enough to reach. Apply pressure to the pulley to take the tension off the belt. Slide the belt off and then install the new one using the diagram under the hood as a guide. Check this thread for some photos:

My check engine light and vtm light are on in my 2008 Honda Pilot I checked the codes it's saying the egr valve is bad would that cause the Vtm light to come on to


Yes, the VTM-4 module will light up.

Here's the deal; when you manually turn on the Variable Torque Management-4 system, the light to the console switch is illuminated- letting you know that the vehicle is in traction control mode- and it is functioning properly.

However, if you did not manually activate the VTM, and your cruising along under normal driving conditions, but you start experiencing engine problems, like when the Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve starts to malfunction, this malfunction will cause the engine to misfire and lose engine power.

When this loss of engine power occurs, the VTM perceives that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction to the car's drive line (axle and wheels)- so it triggers the light to go on.

The triggering of the VTM could also happen when the idle speed control valve malfunctions.

So once you have the EGR valve replaced, the codes on the OBD module should be cleared; the check engine light will turn off; and the VTM system light will turn off too.

Dash lights 2012


wow, 2007 and 2012 in one blue box....
or open the glove box, extract operators guide,
read that page for that lamp, bingo the name and the cause and what to do. lost the manual they are free at honda. or here.

http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/honda/honda-ridgeline-owners-manua/
page 70, read this.... I can RTM, sure can....

quote
VTM-4 lamp (your 4wd?)
This indicator normally comes on for
a few seconds when you turn the
ignition switch to the ON (II)
position. If it comes on at any other
time, there is a problem in the 4WD
system. Take the vehicle to your
dealer to have it checked.
If the indicator blinks while driving,
the VTM-4 fluid temperature is too
high. Pull to the side of the road
when it is safe, shift to Park, and let
the engine idle until the indicator
goes out.
Continuing to drive with the VTM-4
indicator blinking may cause serious

damage to the system. (end page70)

if really DIY guy?
the then the FSM elaborates this to no end.

buy the FSM and read that. (most things on most newer cars are anything but simple)

Vtm-4 light on


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Honda ridgeline 2007 check engine light on


The check engine light is because all check engine light codes are caused by components that affect emissions. It's not actually an engine problem, it's a problem with either your O2 sensor, MAF sensor, fuel/air ratio, pyrometer, or exhaust.

I would start with an OBDII scan, this will tell you what component is malfunctioning.

4 wheel drive lock button does not work or indicator light button


The VTM-4 button will only "lock in" when you have the gear select lever in reverse, D1 or D2. If you accelerate past 18 mph the power levels will shift more to front wheels to reduce damage to rear differential. As far as the heat is concerned, have you set the heat to floor while out of the truck and checked for air flow with your hand? It doesn't seem to hit directly at your feet, more like mid-calf.
