    I'm having the 66-1 error code issue (brake pressure sensor) with my 7th Generation. non-facelift 2004 diesel sedan (German model, I live in Hungary).
    VSA and triangle lights are on, cannot clear code, dealer says there are no troubleshooting steps except for replacing the VSA unit.

    I want to get a used VSA modulator (a new one or refurb is expensive), but they don't have a matching part number in the local scrapyard. And by the way, I would like to get a module which is not faulty by manufacturer, if possible.

    I have in my car: 57110-SEF-E551-M1

    The one they have: 57110-SEF-E560-M1

    Will the E560-M1 fit my car?

    (Is it true that the E560 is the revised, good modulator? which is not faulty? - according to this page: http://hondakarma.com/threads/41/)

    Thanks for any help!

    Wrong part for your accord bud that part number does not exist. the revised VSA part numbers are in the link you posted.

    At the time TSB was posted these were the part number , use this tool to see if any of the below parts have been superseded.

    Thanks for the answer IA!

    Both part numbers exist, proof is in the attached pictures - maybe the numbers are not used in their whole form, rather in a shortened version.
    First picture is my original faulty part (still in the car) second picture is the one I got from the scrapyard today.
    Cost was about 130£.

    The faulty part will be taken out and the 'new' (used) one put back in on Sept 9th, I will report back about how it went.

    57110-SEF-E551-M1. 57110-SEF-E560-M1.



    Do you have any suggestions for how I could make use of the faulty one? Maybe sell it to one of the refurb companies? Even a little money would be much better than trashing it.

    The new part got put in the car, functions perfectly.

    Labor cost, including brake fluid, was about £40 at a local Honda specialist I trust, so total cost for replacing the VSA-ABS unit was about £170.
    Not too bad for a part for which I got a replacement cost estimate of about £2600 at a local Honda dealership last week.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for how I could make use of the faulty one? Maybe sell it to one of the refurb companies? Even a little money would be much better than trashing it.
    I have no use for it and it is just sitting on the shelf, even though it functions perfectly, except for the brake pressure sensor inside.
