    I've read a lot about diesel Accords having problems with the VSA modulator, my car is a 2005 2.4 Type-S and today driving home
    I noticed that the ABS, VSA & Triangle with explanation mark warnings are all showing at the same time.

    The car has only done 55 or 56000 miles, has anybody else had issues with a petrol accord and the VSA modulator ?

    I guess I'm off to the Honda dealer tomorrow :Sobbing:

    Any advice most welcome.

    Thanks
    Andy

    It won't be the VSA modulator it will be a sensor you haven't turned off VSA by the button have you ?

    The VSA button was the first thing I tried but it doesn't do anything, all 3 lights just remain on.

    If I remember correctly normally the VSA button would put the VSA warning (on the dashboard) on but not the other 2 ?

    Hopefully it is just something silly like that.

    Cheers

    You need to get it on a HDS,read code, clear code and do a calibration. You may find, like me, that after the calibration you never see the issue again.

    If it doesn't post the code here, we'll advise you further.

    Thanks Speedy, I do hope it just goes away.

    I'll let you know how I get on.

    A quick update:

    Honda garage diagnosed a DTC code 15-1, they told me that it meant that the rear (drivers side) wheel speed sensor needed replaced.

    Replaced today and all the warnings have now gone.
