There was a safety recall campaign number 10v098000 for vsa modulator. I went to dealer to fix this recall around in 2014 and now my Odyssey is getting "! vsa" light on dashboard. I checked the code and code is "dtc vsa pressure sensor inside vsa modulator control unit". Dealer is saying vsa modulator is failed and replacement cost is ~$1500. Honda sold defective part on this vehicles and there were many complaints about vsa failures on this vehicles. My Odyssey is only 37,000 mileage. This vsa modulator controls abs also and we are very concerned about the stability of the vehicle with the failure of this module. Please find the photo of the dtc code read by the auto shop. Fixing this module is very expensive and Honda should pay for selling the defective items which are mainly safety concerns.

(1) dealer performed the recall item vsa update 13-098 on 8/5/15. After that driving home the vsa warning light appeared. (2) came back to dealer on 8/28/15 dealer found codes 61-1 and 66-1, claimed it was nothing to do with the recall and wanted to charge for a diagnostic. However, vsa warning light never came on before the recall update for all time before.
My 2006 Honda Odyssey is just out of warranty about 60,000 miles now. Vsa light comes on and stays on. Dealer said vsa modulator bad and need $1400 to fix it. Braking is very soft and need to press pedal at least 200-300 feet away before red light to ensute teh full stop. Feel danerous when driving highspeed on hwy/fwy. I reserached and learned the vsa malfunction might cause sudden brake during driving. What will that be if car auto-braked when driving on freeway?.

I received a letter detailing the reacall on my 2007 Honda oddysey' s vsa module. I brought in my vehicle to have the problem fixed. The vehicle did not have any observable issues, before I brought it in to the racine, WI Honda dealership. After the work was preformed I observed that when the vehicles headlights were on, the cruise control, and rear brake lights were no longer operational, and the vsa light would illuminate on the dashboard after the light switch had been engaged for 7 literal minutes. This issue only occurs when the headlight switch is engaged. I have brought the vehicle back to the dealership on 4 seperate occasions, and they have been unwilling, and unable to fix the problem. When they observed the problem with my vehicle, the Honda mechanic says that the error codes that are showing up are impossible to be occuring, and that he's never seen anything like it before. They then try to upsell me, on various components on the vehicle, that have no observable defects. I purchased this vehicle because I have three young children, and was under the impression that Honda oddysey' s were reliable. After getting pulled over several times by local law enforcement for driving without brake lights at night, I have been forced to park the vehicle. I brought the vehicle to the kenosha Honda dealership, and they said that they would not perform the necessary repairs, since the recall work was done at another dealership. As a single father of three, I am beyond frustration with Honda's indifference to this issue, and "catch us if you can" attitude. Because of the defective remedy to the vsa recall, I am unable to drive this vehicle which I still owe $6000 on ($315 monthly). Because of this issue the vehicle only has a resale value of about $800, ,and the Toyota dealership said that they were essentially uninterested, in taking this vehicle in as a trade-in. Help!!!.
While driving during rush hour traffic the vehicle suddenly without warning began to apply the brakes and the engine idled down then temporarily seemed normal only to have it reoccur in a matter of seconds. The vsa light including the symbol and the initials vsa became illuminated. I turned the car off and restarted it multiple times only to have it reoccur over and over again. I had just had the catalytic converter replaced for a second time two weeks prior to this happening. I was told by the dealer that in replacing the catalytic converter the service crew punctured my radiator and had to replace that as well. I had the car towed to the dealer who told me the vsa senor control cluster needed to be replaced. They said that they had never seen this before. They indicated that the part would take a week and a half to get the part which seems very strange. The cost for the part is $500 and the installation will be $276. 25.

On my 2006 Odyssey had to replace the front brakes at around 19,000 miles due to shaking of the car when braking. Recently at 34,000 miles the vsa warning light came on, took it to my local Honda dealership and it was diagnosed that the vsa modulator needs to be replaced and that it's dangerous to drive the minivan. A quick search on the internet reveals that the vsa is a common issue. I question the quality of such an important piece of equipment and the high price to replace, over $1000. With such low mileage such parts should not go bad. I see that Honda issued a recall for a vsa issue but for 2007-2008 Odysseys. I believe it should include all years.
I had had no problem w/ the vsa. I received the recall notice and had the part replaced. This oct,2014 I was driving on us-2 in NW mt on a slushy road when the vsa warning light came on. I brought the vehicle back to Honda. They told me the the brake part of the vsa unit was now faulty. They also told me that it wasn't part of the original recall. (replacement cost of this unit was quoted as $1,100. 00 w/o labor !!! ) was this replacement part also defective?? was it incorrectly repaired?? is this a recurring issue with this recall??? who now pays the repair cost? thank you, //tom burke//.
While pulling out from work parking lot, vsa light came on, d letter gear was blinking, and engine vibrated abnormally. Rpm could not get passed 3000. Also, checked engine oil when got home and it appeared to be low. The vehicle just got oil changed about a month ago.
Vsa indicator light appeared and would not turn off. Brought vehicle into dealership. I was told that there was a recall on the vsa system about two years ago and the vehicle was repaired according to the recall at that time. Dealership states does not know reason for current problem. Now dealership orders "replace vsa contol unit, replace 47 pin vsa connector, bleed system, perform sensor neutral memorization procedure, and test drive. " I am concerned that current problem is associated with previous recall problem or that repair made during recall did not actually fix the problem. Dealership denies this but cannot explain reason for current problem. Dealership refuses to provide me the damaged part(s). Concern: car had 41866 miles and was serviced as required. Dealership cannot identify reason for breakdown of vsa part or system. As there was a previous recall for this part it appears that the current problem and needed repairs may indeed relate to the previous recall.
The vsa light has been on and off for about two weeks, but user manual says it is okay for "normal driving". When I was driving about 40-45 mph, the vsa lights was on. I kept driving normally. Then we I tried to apply brake to slow down, the brake light turned on. After I released the brake, the car seemed to applied brake on itself even harder. It happened many times during the past few weeks and this time I definitely felt it.

Vsa warning light went on suddenly during driving. Steering wheel feels not stable when turning after the light is on. Took the vehicle to Honda dealer and was told the communication between the vsa module and the computer is lost and need replace vsa module for $1,600. It is not a problem caused by wear-and tear and Honda should be responsible for making the electronics more reliable in Odyssey models.
Faulty vsa modulator / abs pump. The vsa indicator light stays on and diag check by dealer shows error codes 76-1 and 66-1. The advise is to replace the modulator. This equipment is already proven faulty in similar Honda models (odyssey 2007-2008) and recalled. Honda Odyssey 2005 also needs to be recalled. Customers should not be forced to spend a couple of thousand dollars for this.
The vsa light comes on. They replaced everything and now are going to replace the entire wiring harness. This occurred one day after driving the vehicle of the lot. I would have happily exchanged it for another Odyssey but Honda wants to stick me with this lemon instead of doing what is right. I am now disappointed in the way this has been handled and I will look toward other manufacturers in the future.
