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

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,

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.

Vsa and management light on honda accord type s 2.4 and still drives alright. how can i rectify

A scan tool will be needed, this like the check engine light, the computers are aways testing the systems in which they operate and when theres a problem the computer will turn the light on to let you know theres a problem and then it will store a code, the code will tell you where the problem is and with some checking the problem can be found, for example they scan the computer for codes and the code pops up as po352 left front wheel sensor, this would mean a problem with that sensor, VSA = vehicle stability assist,this is to keep control of car under slippery conditions or when skidding, it will release brake and also keep tires from spinning in snow or wet road, theres a button to turn this system on or off a light on dash will let you know if its on or off, so start by having it scanned, you will need to take to dealer or shop, you will not notice any diffrence in driving it just wont stablize if the tires spin in snow , good luck hope this helps,

Something is wrong with the vsa system it sounds like it keeps activate. This will make vehicle jerk. Have vehicle scanned for codes. I am guessing a wheel speed sensor. You might have to go to the dealer. It most likely will be expensive

Why is the Vsa and abs staying on in 2005 honda crv?

Hi did you check your tire pressures and brake fluid level? That would be where I would start to look. If you have changed your tires or adjusted your tires you may need to reset your VSA.
Else you may have a speed sensor issue.

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.
