Hi Everyone,

I was wondering if someone can assist please, my ABS and VSA randomly come on. When they are on my abs doesn't work but when they go off and I break it feels like my ABS has kicked in every time.

I have checked for codes using the tinfoil in the fuse box trick and the codes that have displayed are below.

pa 10 dtc b1008
pa 10 dtc b1031
pa 10 dtc b2983
pa 10 dtc b2991

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Phil

Especially with multiple codes I'd always check the earths, take note of the codes and then clear them to see if they come back.

Chasing one on mine and waiting for my HDS to arrive so I can read the code as mine was B1168 but now says DTC NO but the lights are still on.

Those 'B' codes are all related to 'bodywork' issues (so dash controls, displays, ventilation, etc)... I don't actually think the foil trick enables ABS/VSA codes to be read. On my Accord there IS a built-in ABS/VSA diagnostic that can be run by linking pins 4 & 9 on the OBD2 socket, but I don't believe that Civics have this SCS mode (OBD1) back-compatibility?

In any case, as with all methods of reading Honda (and some other manufacturer) diagnostic codes, you should first delete all stored codes and then wait to see which ones come back... all codes are stored, even if the problem has already been repaired, so a lot of what you read off is historic, not active, and therefore does not necessarily relate to a current problem.

Here's a thought - once @musegroove gets his Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) set up and working you could slip him a few quid to perform a full diagnostic scan on your car, seeing as how you're practically neighbours! HDS does far more than just read codes and would cost you a small fortune at a Honda dealer/specialist for a full diagnostic scan.

i used the scanner in link below
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Diagnostics-Airbag-Automotive-Foxwell-Professional/dp/B00UJV3FUC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1506809057&sr=8-1&keywords=foxwell+nt630+pro

i actually only paid £84 i think as after id looked at it i got a email offer saying 24hr sale so when my abs light came on job was fixed for around £100 buying scanner and a abs sensor from ebay still going strong after 6 months and around 10000 miles later
+ ive made money by scanning other cars that some ive been paid for and others its saved me the cost of getting codes read from a garage
