    I have the dreaded VSA light on, but it happened in strange circumstances. I was driving in the dark for the first time in a while and thought the headlamps were not very bright, and fiddled about with the height adjuster but lights were still rubbish, so I stopped to check and the nearside bulb was out (they go about once year on nearside) When I set off again the orange triangle lit up, and I thought I may have accidently knocked the VSA switch, so pressed it and the light went out. Then I got to work ok but when I started up to come home I had the triangle and letters asr next to it lit up and also VSA where the MPG is usually displayed. I have tried the switch a few times and it pushes in but springs back out to same position when you let go, but I can't remember if that is how it usually operates, and hoping maybe switch is playing up. Would somebody mind trying theirs and tell me if it is the same. Otherwise I guess it is down to Honda dealer for diagnostics. Any advice appreciated. Cheers Joe

    Mine comes on every know and again. Just drive it as normal. Next time you start it, chances are itll go off.

    That is how the switch works. So you will need to get the codes read.

    I have the VSA come on occasionally, never for longer than the duration of that trip - nothing ever seems any different about the car whilst driving.

    As said it's best to get the code read to see where the fault likes.

    If the light comes on as you go over approx 10 mph I believe it's because the wheel sensors need recalibrating.
