    VSA are expensive,depending on the condition of the car a brand new part cost may be more than the cars value.
    How sure are you it is the VSA is that on a hunch or have you had the specific error code.

    I've heard that the VSA System can cost up to £1700 excluding installation.

    Just to add if you get the 66-1 error code for the first time,get it removed and see when it comes back and under what conditions.

    I have seen a couple of Accords with DTC 66-1 when they first surfaced and after the code removal,it has not come back for months. So untill and unless DTC code refuses to be removed don't trust the DTC 66-1 biblically.

    These two owners who have used my free diagnostic are over the moon.

    I've answered your questions about TPS in your other thread

    One thing to note is that a TPS issue will not only knock out the VSA system but it may cause the car to run in Open Loop mode. Meaning the fueling won't be optimum, and thereby be heavier on fuel consumption, as well as not be so good for the cat.
