Twice in a day and while driving in the rain for the first time, four malfunction lights appeared in the dashboard and stayed on. They were the awd, abs, vsa and eps amber lights. I took pictures of the display in the dashboard. The next day the display had cleared and I took the vehicle to the dealer. I showed one of the pictures to the service advisor. After 2. 5 hours I was told that they could not duplicate the trouble and that the trouble was possibly caused by slippage in recent weather. This is unsettling as it makes me wonder if I will continue to have this problem on rainy days.

The vsa and exclamation light came on one day right when I started the car and has never turned off. My mileage was approximately 44,000 miles. Took it to the Honda dealer and confirmed the abs module needs to be replaced. Part+labor = $2400+ (excluding tax). Called u. S. Honda manufacturer and they will pay 25% for the part. That still is expensive. I'm reading off on the web that countries in the uk and canada, that Honda has paid the part in full. Here in the u. S. They don't recognize this as a defect. This part is a huge safety issue. A local mechanic says I should not drive this where it snows. If there's sand, the car will be stuck. Another mechanic said there could be a short. Honda manufacturer never advised me of this or if it's safe to drive or should be replaced right away. Coming from family who buys mostly Honda's, I will not buy another Honda again. I was looking at a odyssey, but saw it had a huge vsa issue as well. Sometimes I wonder if it was an electrical issue because a few times the cruise control light turns on once the car is turned on. Have never used cruise control. Never driven in bad weather and avoid heavy rain. Driven only few times per week and carefully in mostly local short distances.

I purchased a 2007 Honda crv in sept 2011 and recently the car failed and began to lose power randomly. A few days ago the engine light came on and the vsa light as well. When you hit 20 mph 40 mph etc the vehicle stalls and jerks. I attempted to fix the problem looking at the owners manual but I couldn't find or do anything on my own to fix it. I took it to the Honda dealer in orlando where I purchased it from and they want to charge me just to check it. I feel this is a safety issue. I've also noticed many postings about this malfuction on different web sites. It sounds to me as a recall and a manufactures responsibility.

I am the original owner of the well maintained vehicle, a 2005 Honda crv with 56,781 miles currently, and no longer covered by any warranty. At @ 55,500 miles,the car had the abs and vsa lights come on spontaneously on the dashboard display which indicated that they were not functional. They would not turn off. The car was taken to its regular service dealership, economy Honda in chattanooga,TN and the problem was diagnosed (free of charge) as a failure of the abs/vsa modulator (computer). Cost to repair was @ $2,400. 00 (@ $1800 for the part, balance labor). They said it was o. K. To drive but it had no anti-lock brakes or vsa. Because this was a safety issue, an unusual occurrence and very expensive to repair, I contacted the district Honda customer service (case # n012011-03-1501146) and explained the problem. They were most helpful and courteous. They recorded the complaint and after 3 days Honda called and agreed to share 50% of the cost to repair. The crv was repaired on March 29,2011 at the same dealership with my cost share of $1206. 79. In my internet search on the problem, I found at least 55 instances (USA, CA, and eu) of the same abs/vsa problem and cost to repair on one blog I found. All vehicles were 2005 and 2006 Honda crvs.
