Some vehicles sold by Honda & Acura in the mid 2000s may require a VSA calibration after clearing ABS or VSA codes.
If you clear your ABS codes and then an orange master warning triangle appears, or you read an 84 code you may need to perform the following calibration:
Do not attempt a VSA calibration yourself unless you understand all steps and are familiar with the OBDII port and vehicle.
Failure to follow steps., or attempting the following steps on an unsupported vehicle may cause damage to vehicle electrical systems or control modules.
- The VSA activation indicator should sound blink 2 times and go off in one second, then the system completes the neutral position memorization. If the lights do not go out, repeat the procedure again.
When connecting to ground on step #2 this is either pin 4 or 5 (both are ground points) in the diagram below
Exercise extreme caution when connecting pin #9 to ground, if you get the port layout backwards you may accidentally connect pin #16 (battery voltage) which is on the other side of the DLC to ground.
