I have a 2006 Honda oddessy that keeps draining my battery.i took it to 2 different shops and the first one said both battery and the alternator was ok. the second one said the alternator was bad and charged me 620.00 dollars to replace it. I still have the same problem, the vsa warning light comes on when I put enough charge on the battery to start the vehicle,
