Hey
Honda Insight 2011. Mileage 120,000
In the last month, VSA (Only vsa) warning light went on three times
The first few times he turned off after a few minutes' drive.
Today it is on again.
I checked the scanner for malfunctions.
Attached Images.
I'd love to hear what the solution is.
Thank you

Likely your 12V per the 61-01 error.

Multiple unrelated system failures scream low/failing/failed 12V.

Did you replace the battery yourself? Did you do a 151R replacement or a 51R?

You might want to disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes, and reconnect. Then start the car up and let it idle for about 10 minutes.

I had a cluster sensor failure on the CRV when I replaced it's battery, the mechanic recommended we try the trick above to see if it resolved before we take it to the dealer. It did and everything was fine again.

You cannot say your battery is good without subjecting it to a load test. I have purchased brand new batteries that were dead. I have had brand new batteries last less than 6 months.

You need to check your ground cables as well.

Hey
I did not change the battery alone. I bought the car with this battery.
I do not know what kind of battery. Nothing is written on the battery.
Does it matter so much?

I tried it and it did not work.

I checked with a multimeter switching on the vehicle. There was no drop of power. Was 12.6 volts

I checked all grounding connections.
Resistance of 0.06-8
I added another wire directly to the vsa sensor.
After a 5-minute drive, the problem went out.
And after five minutes it came on again.

Hey
I noticed that I always turned to the left side,
That I turn the wheel to the left,
The lamp went out.
What could be the reason?
The lamp usually lights up on a straight road at a high speed of 90 km / h

Spill all beans...

In other words, give us some history of your Insight.
When did you get it? What country are you in? What country was your iInsight first sold in? Have the airbag recalls been done? Has it ever been in an accident that set the airbags off?

Seriously, listen to Mr Keith. The 12 volt underhood battery in our Insights can cause a world of trouble. Most of that trouble seeming unrelated to a weak battery. Get it LOAD tested. If it tests good, check the cable connections. If you disconnect it, do the idle relearn procedure.


An old Civic hatchback was one of the best old cars for poor people, an Insight is not. It is full of electronics that will often require a dealer or a Hybrid specialist to diagnose.

VSA Indicator
The VSA indicator comes on when the VSA function is
lost. The VSA indicator blinks when the VSA function is
activating.
VSA OFF Indicator
The VSA OFF indicator comes on, when the VSA is
turned OFF by using the VSA OFF switch.
Error 61-01 - the most correct unlike the others.
Listen other owners: first try to replace the battery with a working 12V.

Hey
I checked the scanner for malfunctions.
The remaining errors can not be identified, there are no such codes in the service manual. Try using the original diagnostic program - Honda Diagnostic System. Or, configure your scanner in accordance with the Honda car. Do not try to use universal diagnostic programs for Honda, and especially for hybrid models.
Erase the DTC from memory, and then retest the VSA system for errors.

Hey
I checked the battery today.
The electrician said the author was very weak.
I bought a new battery. Hope the problem is solved.
Thank you very much to all the writers.

Thank you very much for the response.
The information is certainly useful.

Hey
What I can not seem to understand.
If there is a problem with the VSA sensor
There should also be a problem in ABS
It's the same system.
How could it be that I just had a VSA lamp?
Thanks

Does your ABS lamp come on when you first turn on the key? Maybe it's burnt out?
