2008 Honda Ridgeline VSA Airbag and Warning lamp all on have locked steering column

My 2008 Honda Ridgeline warning lamps VSA abs and warning triangle lamps are all lit and the steering column is locked into park. What problem am I facing when I take this to a repair shop. I was wondering how long I can operate until i get it into a shop. I have to push a screw driver into the steering column override to operate the shifter. Any suggestions it must be a braking caliper issue or steering assist.???

No.
It might be in the switch for the parking brake. Try to release it a little more with your hands. It's either in the parking brake system or the regular brake system. Anything ABS has it's own warning light. Have it checked by a tech; it's a safety item, ok?

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.

Any time these lights come on there is need for concern. I'd suggest you take it back to the place which repaired the car and have them fix it.

I have a 2006 Honda CRV and the lights are lit up VSA, ABS and triangle. Was told the VSA needs to be replaced and that it is spendy. How much would it cost to have those to be turned off or reset


try resetting using a scan tool
get a good used one from the wreckers
as they all work of the wheel sensors for the ABS , check for wire or sensor failure
have the fault codes read to determine what sensor is failed

VSA,ABS,Brake,and triangle w/exclamation constantly on


Vsa,abs,and brake all work off of the same sensor. You have a problem with one of the following system. Vsa vehicle stability assist, abs anti lock brakes, or the brakes themselves. My guess is either the abs or vsa

Ground problem. Your ground for the radio is right behind the radio or to the left at the steering column base. Loosen and retighten the bolt. Could also be an internal radio problem/solder joint/chip. I fix my own radios, because they are mine and I have time. Parts are cheap. Most people go with after market before they want to pay my price.

Trouble code 84-1 sensor logic failure


Red the oper ,guide, yet, or the FSM.
or at Alldata.com ?
why not get it serviced? if not say why not? so we can respond
in the correct way.. (you just want a wild guess?) what?
Vehicle Stability Assist


ok, so there are 2 possibles. (macro viewed)
  1. Driving wrong, or skidding.
  2. or a malfunction of the system.
only you know the truth of above.!
did you even read the operators guide?
how the lamp acts? VSA.? off, on, blinks, etc?
is this a post where there are no dealers or ASE mech, availible?
or no FSM? fixing modern cars FSM free is a huge, fail mode...
FIRST
if its a failure get the system scanned, ABS and PCM and BCM all?!

First of all you need to clear ABS errors
did you see the recall
http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/honda-recalls-182000-vehicles-for-faulty-vehicle-stability-assist-system.html

and guess what, bad brakes, make ABS fail and so will VSA.
in that order. so... SCAN IT ! then wonder. (all cars 1988 to now)


here is how it works ( it uses ABS) quote:

Vehicle Stability Assist

The Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) was introduced by Honda to its vehicles in 1997. The term is Honda's version of Electronic Stability Control (ESC),[22] an active safety feature developed to correct oversteer and understeer by using several sensors to detect loss of steering control and traction while simultaneously braking individual wheels to help the vehicle regain stability.

How VSA Works

VSA combines the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Traction Control System (TCS) with side-slip control to help stabilize the vehicle whenever it turns more or less than desired. ABS is an existing system that prevents the vehicle's wheels from locking up under braking, especially in slippery road conditions. For the ABS to work, the system relies on the computed input from a steering angle sensor to monitor the driver's steering direction, the yaw sensor to detect the momentum of which the wheels are steering (yaw rate), and a lateral acceleration (g-force) sensor to signal the changes in speed. At the same time, the TCS will prevent wheel slip during acceleration while the side-slip control stabilizes cornering when the rear or front wheels slip sideways (during oversteer and understeer).
Controlling oversteer - During an oversteer, the rear end of the vehicle will spin out because the rotational speed of the rear wheels exceeds the front wheels. VSA will prevent the vehicle from spinning by braking the outer front wheel to produce an outward moment and stabilize the vehicle.
Controlling understeer - During an understeer, the front wheels loses traction during cornering due to excessive throttle and causes the speed difference between the left and front wheels to decrease. When the vehicle steers outwards from the intended trajectory, VSA intervenes by reducing engine power and if necessary, also braking the inner front wheel.

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,

2008 Honda Ridgeline VSA warning light


I have a 2014 Ridgeline SE with 8,900 miles.
Says low brake oil but it's full, and VSA is messed up.
I say it's a VSA computer program problem.
