2 seconds on any search engine will give you the answer to all of this. Buuuut...VSA:Vehicle Stability Assist.
The indicator light with the triangle staying on permanently is telling you that stability assist is NOT currently active. It has either been manually disabled via a button inside the cabin which is probably labeled..."VSA"(real confusing stuff here), OR the system is malfunctioning due to a mechanical or electrical problem and therefore is not functional. I also see that your CEL (Check Engine Light) is on. The light on the left, below the other two. See a service shop or the Honda dealer for a diagnosis of the specific problem(s). This could also be a byproduct of a transmission or wheel-speed-sensor issue which many stability control systems need the data from to determine the relative speeds of each wheel and decide the proper action to take to achieve optimal traction. The transmission would obviously be a worst case scenario but I\'ve heard this combination of lights being a symptom of a bad tranny before in a couple Hondas. Best case scenario you or another driver accidentally hit the VSA toggle button. Check the dash for this button and press it. Again, if that does not fix the issue take the vehicle to a reputable technician.
You can replace the TPS without replacing the whole throttle body. The TPS is held in by rivets instead of screws. Just use a hacksaw to carefully cut slots in the top of the rivets so you can use a screwdriver to back them out. When you put the new TPS in just use standard screws.
if its throwing a code for cam sensor but new sensor does not fix it given the fact of recently replacing the timing chain id say it sounds like the timing was not set correctly which is causing the cam sensor to receive abnormal readings throwing the check engine light on. pull cover and check timing mark placement against specifications
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.
