My Engine cut out on my honda whilst driving and the vsa warning light came on followed shortly after the engine management light. I got the car to my local garage where after being there a week and quite a few hours spent trying to find the fault its not been fixed. It looks quite a complex system and they said it could be a damaged or faulty wire somewhere in the system or could be the ecu. Im at the point where its probably not worth spending hours more labour to find the fault and if it is the ecu its going to cost a lot anyway, Has anyone come across this problem before as im not sure where to go from here, thankyou

Have they managed to retrive any codes from the ECU, given it's thrown a fault? That's step one - From there, you can refer to the service manual for the 8G for troubleshooting: Funkimunks ngESM

I've got a few ideas, but there isn't too much to go on without any codes:- Given they've already had it for a week without success, it may be worth looking for a local specialist, or even having a go yourself if you're feeling up to it and have a code reader - Really can't say much more without any codes though!

The 2006 1.4 will be the i-DSI variant (Twin sparkplugs) - As also used in the Jazz; There are far more Jazz's with 1.4s than Civics, so check around Jazz forums for inspiration too, I know this has worked out for some other 1.4 owners.

hello

i think i might have got the same issue as you

i was driving on highway and suddenly the engine shut down

when i tried to restart the engine light on the dash were normal but was getting VSA error and ABS error , engine tried to start but didnt start.

was found that it was the fuel pump which is located just under the arm rest and near the hand brakes.

it could also be that the pump is not getting power because of some corrosion on the power socket of the pump.

hope this would help you..

cheers

Looking at those DTCs on the ESM, the 12-- Codes are related to climate control components at a brief glance. Have they tested a battery pull / different battery? The spew of gremlins and codes like this tends to come along with any electrical hiccups.

Ive just spoke to the mechanic he tends to think the problem lies within the earthing side of the system, he said theres power going to the fuel pump and other components but its not getting a spark. He said an earthing fault could be anywhere within the system and could take any length of time to trace
