The vtm4 light went on( I think by itself ) will not disengage the malfunction light is also on now air & heat works one day then dont work for a day or two how do I unlock the switch ?


Honda Guy had this to say;
When operating normally your VTM-4 light means the vehicle is in traction control mode. HOWEVER, if the light just came on when you were driving it is an indication that you have a problem with the engine that is causing the VTM system to think the vehicle is in traction control mode because of a loss of engine power or misfire.

Here's how that happens: on a Honda, the way the vehicle restores traction is by reducing engine power to the point where the wheels don't spin as fast and thereby restores traction to a slipping wheel (slipping wheels spin faster than the other wheels). Conversely, when there is a reduction in engine power that is abnormal, the VTM system "thinks" that the engine power is being reduced to restore traction and it triggers the light.

In almost all cases, the light is being triggered by an idle speed control valve malfunction or in some cases by an EGR valve malfunction. It may or may not turn on the check engine light. This problem was fairly common on Pilots in 2004 and 2005 but certainly isn't limited to just those years.

Take the car to a Honda dealer or to a mechanic and have them check for stored codes in your powertrain control module. I think you're going to find that there is a code for an idle speed control valve malfunction or an EGR valve malfunction. The idle speed control valve is warranted for 8 years or 80,000 miles; the EGR for 3 years or 50,000 miles. Your Pilot is probably still in warranty and if so the repairs would be made at no charge

hope that helps

Hi, I have a Jaguar x-type 2.0 v6 2002, and i stalled it and quickly turned the engine back on, then the malfunction indicator lamp came on and won't go off. The car runs perfectly but this light...


Hi,
The light coming on is an indication of a malfunction in the engine management system.
The cars computer has now stored a malfunction code, turning on the light. A parts store as Auto Zone or a Jag dealer can scan the computer with a "code scanner". Many parts stores will do this for free.
The code scanner will give the reason why the light went on. This aids the mechanic of your choice in the repair.
You need to find a place to scan the computer. Although the car runs good the light is a warning that something is amiss.

EML light went on. What is this?


Engine Management Light, same as a Check Engine Light... simply means a sensor component on your vehicle is malfunctioning You'll need to have someone with a tester to run diagnostics and retrieve codes to find exactly what the culprit is. Don't be surprised if it's the Throttle Positioning Sensor (TPS), common problem on BMWs

2001 XJ8 Vanden Plas engine light


I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.
