Vsa light comes on my 2006 max and it slows down to a dangerously slow speed ... Took it to Acura and they said it was the battery and replaced it .... 3 weeks later and driven less than 100 miles the problem is back....guess it wasn't the battery ...any suggestions ????

Sounds like the issue is more serious if its interfering with the Throttle input.
Do you have any check engine codes?

Yes check engine light comes on then goes off same with VSa light ... I can drive 30 minutes and no problem then I get back in the car and start it up and VSA light comes on and I can't drive faster than 15 mph...Acura checked, for codes and didn't find any???? I thought that was unusual .

That happened to us... We found out that if you don't turn your gas cap properly it will go to limp mode and vsa light & engine light comes on. Hope this is the solution for you. Good luck.

^ In Limp mode there should be no speed restriction though.. It only limits the engine power.
