2010 Civic automatic, malfunction light came on, vsa

Customer Question
2010 Civic automatic,...

2010 Civic automatic, malfunction light came on, vsa activated, speedometer not working and transmission refuses to go above 3rd gear.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Is it the original transmission?

Yes , about 116000km (roughly 75,000 miles i guess)

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

I just googled some issues and it seemed like most people complained of an alternator fuse blowing. I checked it and it's fine. I had a full service done on it.

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

No, thank you
