Sorry to dig up an old thread but what was the outcome of this?

I've had the "ABS / VSA" light coming on intermittently for the past 12 months or so. Took the car in at the weekend to have a diagnostics check on it & was told it only needed re-setting & it'd be fine now.

20 miles later & it's back, however this time the message isn't just "ABS / VSA" but says "ABS Check System!". As exciting as it is to have a new message I'm intrigued as to why it's now a different message.

Was it just an ABS sensor on yours or something worse?

Cheers.

Take it to honda and get them to check it properly.
They can activate the pump, test all solenoids to each wheel, check wheel speed and yaw sensors.

I've had the "ABS / VSA" light coming on too but no DTC's to check so that I can fix and replace any required parts.

I have checked all ABS plugs and all are okay all the ABS sensor's in the wheels are in there tight. replacing all four would cost too much. I would just like to know which one.

Does any know another way to read DTC without going to the stealers (I’ve tried Tin foil trick (used a fused loop plug), and my Handheld Diag Reader.)

Does any know a good way on how to get them out without braking
