Honda pilot 2018 - check engine / VTM-4 and VSA lights are on

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Check engine blinks...other stay on

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Pilot?

2010

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

Was taking it to shop tomorrow. with cold weather (upstate NY) hard to work on it outside. And don't want to breakdown

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

I notice the engine is not sounding right. But thinking the lights are related to wheels

engine sounds rougher.

Do you notice any misfire/ engine skip at idle?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
engine idle is not right. We were hit with very cold weather the past weekend. Lights came on Monday not sure if related. No other changes in routine.

The codes will need to be read but the symtom you are experiencing can be caused by faulty ignition coil, spark plugs, vacuum leak or a faulty idle air control valve. On this vehicle when the check engine light comes on vsa and vtm gets triggered as well. So once engine light is fixed the others should go of too.

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

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
