VSA Indicator and VSA Activation

My 2004 MDX VSA Indicator and VSA Activation /!\ light both turn on after a short drive. It will reset once i restart the car, but after a few miles they will both turn on again.

Does anyone know what the problem is or is there a way to get the DTC without the Honda Diagnostic System? I know in the old days, Acuras use to have an LED that would flash the code.

Any help would be appreciated.

Something might be wrong with the VSA module. You got to take it in to find out what the issue is.

SpeedyGSR - Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your MDX? I have the same problem. My Acura dealer wants $150 to diagnose the problem with their computer...RIP OFF! I found a smaller shop in town that specializes in Honda/Acura that says they can do it for $75 but I'm curious if you might know of something I can check first.

It turned out to be a steering angle sensor that needed to be replaced, if they will roll the 150 into the repair, it wont be that bad. Theres no other way to pull the code

Cool, thanks. Well I guess I will set up an appointment and cross my fingers. I'm an old car guy so it kills me that I am forced to rely on all this computer diagnostic business. I guess there is a price to pay for features!

FYI my VSA lights up whenever it gets cold up here. If it is single digits it will light up first start of the day, but go off the next start. It has been doing this for years.

Just for some closure: I took my MDX into the shop today and they said that VSA sensors just needed to be recalibrated. $75, a quick press of their computer button and I'm on my way. I feel slightly annoyed that was the only reason but I guess it is better than me having to actually fix anything...
