My Honda Ridgeline 2008 has engine lamp and VTF-4 lamp

Customer Question
My Honda Ridgeline 2008...

My Honda Ridgeline 2008 has engine lamp and VTF-4 lamp lighting. Went to my Honda Dealer here in Norway, but they were not able to fix it.

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

The yellow warning lights for engine and VTF-4.

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

During winter I have winter tyres with spikes. Those are without sensors for TPMS.

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

I am not fixing myself. My Honda Dealer was not able to repair. They do not sell Ridgeline in Europe.

I am here Sundays through Thursdays from around 5 am to 2 pm Mountain time.If you respond and I do not respond back right away I will do so as soon as I can.

Was the dealer able to read out the fault codes at all with their scan tool or computer to see what codes are set?
