Bulletins & Advisories Safety Recall : VSA Brake System Performance - VSA Modulator PSV Valve

Discussion in '9th Generation (2012-2017)' started by Service News, Friday 12th Aug, 2016.

  1. Service News Staff Managed Dealer Information

    Honda have issued the following TSB # SQ-07-002-00 for these models.


    Under certain circumstances the driver may notice a reduction in the performance of the VSA / ABS Modulator functions.
    In addition, the City Brake Active system (CTBA) may not decelerate the vehicle sufficiently to achieve Honda’s internal requirement, although the system still operates within regulatory requirements. Normal brake function is not affected.

    During the manufacturing of the VSA / ABS modulator, a tool used to form one of the suction valves was incorrectly machined. This resulted in small pieces of valve material remaining in the suction valve after the assembly of the valve into the modulator. Depending on the size of the valve material, one of the one-way check valves in the modulator may be kept open. If the check valve does not operate correctly, the anti lock braking will not operate correctly resulting in possible wheel lock under anti lock brake operation.

    The VSA modulator supplier's manufacturing process has been modified and improved to ensure there is no contamination from the suction valve machining process.
