Customer Question
Two warning issues. My...

Two warning issues. My VSA light comes on after I start driving as well as a "triangle light". My local mechanic stated the error code 84-1 is showing up when he runs the diagnostics. The other issue is my airbag/seatbelt indicator goes on when I have an adult passenger in the passenger front seat. Looking for how to get both issues resolved.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The first two lights are the VSA activation indicator and the Vehicle Stability Assist System Indicator.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '84 Acura?

The second problem is the supplemental restraint system indicator.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

The model is a 2005 Acura TL. I haven't tried to fix the problem myself. I'm looking for recommendations as to what the problem is in relation to these error lights.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I don't believe so.

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
