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,

My 2005 Odessay Touring van has a VSA light that has gone on about ten times today. Each time I have to turn off the ignition and turn it back on in order to make it go official. However only once did the...


Thanks for the info... that fixed the problem with the VSA light going on. The error code had nothing to do with the VSA system. Error code said I was low on oil. The dealer I brought it to said the VSA system will not work when you are low on oil. When the VSA warning light comes on, you loose 80% of your engine power because of it. They changed the oil and I have not had the VSA warning light go on since.

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.

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.

2006 Honda crv, vsa, abs, and triangle light are permanently on


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.

My Honda Element 2008 has a VSA Warning light and


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.

VSA CHECK ENG LIGHT COMES ON


Take your vehicle to a parts store and have them run a diagnostic on it. It will tell you what code came up and that will give you a good start.
