hi jim
Mechanic for Honda: Jim, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

These lights usually will come on due to a bad wheel speed sensor, the abs module should be scanned for codes, these codes will identify which sensor is the problem.

It is my goal to give you 5 star service, so please give me a 5 star rating before leaving the site today.

The dealer is telling me they think it is the VSA module
Mechanic for Honda: Jim, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I have replaced more sensors for this problem, I would have the abs module scanned for codes before doing anything else.,

Where would i go to scan the ABS codes? The above listed codes were scanned by my local dealer but they did not mention any ABS codes. They also stated that the above codes were older codes but all related to the VSA module.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have never used this website before and i am disapointed with how slow the response is.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I went to the local auto parts store but the only code they came up with was U0122 lost communication with vehicle dynamics control module.

if you don't have a scanner that can communic ate with the avbs then you need to find someone who has one....a shop should unless you know someone

Customer reply replied 4 months ago

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

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

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
