Brakes problem
2006 Honda Civic V8 Manual 48000k miles

Everytime I switch on the engine, on the dash board I get a message VSA ABS Check System. Noone has an explanation for this because the car functions perfectly and even the brakes are ok.
Do you have an explanation of what that might mean?
Thanks.
Do you

Hi Joseph,

During initial ignition ON, the indicator lights would come on and gors off after initial checks have been performed by the control units and no faults found.

If the lights stays on while driving, a fault in the VSA and/or ABS system has been detected and these system would be lost, meaning they would not work when required.

The VSA and ABS would not affect the engine performance. Neither would they affect normal braking usage, however if the ABS function is lost, the brakes would lock in cases of hard braking.

If the lights stays onm while driving, get a scan done to retrieve the trouble codes in the control units to understand what could be wrong.
