ABS...VSA...BRAKE Warning lights on

1st posts and new to forums. My daughter has a 2008 Honda Accord Sedan. She just turned 16 and has only been driving it for 3 days. She called and said some lights were coming on the display. I had her come by the house and these lights were on...... the ABS indicator, the VSA indicator and the brake system indicator. I made her park the car until I get it to the dealer on Monday. Does anybody have any idea why these lights would be on at the same time?? Thanks in advance for any input.

Whatever is wrong with the brake system is causing the anti-lock braking system to malfunction, thus the ABS light. The vehicle stability assist uses the brakes to control skids & wheelspin and such, so if its adversely affected, the VSA light will be lit as well. Could be something as simple as a malfunctioning or disconnected wheel sensor.

I had a similar problem on my car as well which it was the VSA/Check Engine and car wouldn't go over 3k RPM's . Took the car to two dealers first one they reset the ecu problem continue after that they changed the crank sensor problem fixed "NOT" after I had the car for a few days lights came back up so I took it to a different dealer and they had to call a HONDA Tech cause they didn't know what was the problem so after they spoke to the tech came to the conclusion that the ECU needed to be replace. Btw this actually happen the car been almost brand new. Good luck

I had the same problem, for me it was a bad rear speed sensor. It happened after I had the suspension lowered. It cost me about $200 to have it fixed at the stealership.
Good luck. : )

Good Luck, im pretty sure i was the first to have this problem in a 8th gen accord. VSA ABS (!) D Light blinking, and everything was running fine. Mine kept coming and going, only when i drove. I had a friend look at it, and i did research online on the forums, i only came accross older cars that said it was a transmission issue. so i got worried. my friend with a shop took a look and said its probably the wheel hub sensor. he couldnt be sure but he said take it to honda cause it can be costly if its not the problem. I took it over to Turnerville honda... i dont have a clue why i took it to those guys. they said they found the issue, after being wrong 2 time before hand. good thing i said i wasnt paying for diagnostics each time.. thay said it would cost 1300 to fix, and i said that bulllshit cause its a fairly new car. thye cut a deal wit me to pay half and i pay half. so now its running fine. i hope... im doing business over in china so i have no idea how its running.

MY only advise is bring it in, get it checked and if you have modifications take them out, cause little things count. they tried to tell me my interior illuminations caused everything to happen at first. but i know the voltage capacity of the lights would not be able to cause any sort of dash issue, by itself at least.

My car was also over the 36k warranty. You might have luck and have it done free. but take it in asap

Welcome to DA, however you are in the wrong forum, you have a 7th Gen and this is the 8th Gen forum.

What you should do is drive to an Auto Zone or Pep Boy type shop to have the code read with the OBD-II scanner, then you will know what code(s) caused the check engine light to come on.

FWIW, you are describing something similar to what I experience in the summer in my V6 car, although I didn't notice if VSA light came on or not but the CEL light definitely did, and the engine had almost no power at all even when I pushed the accelerator pedal all the way down.

I disconnected the battery which reset everything and the problem went away, it's been 3.5 months now and the problem has not returned, it may have been just a glitch. Reading the forum found a possible electronic throttle position sensor issue.

You should have the code read, find out what it is, then disconnect the battery to reset the electronics, then see if the same problem comes back.

same problem on my 2010 honda accord lx. i drive normally suddenly D light VSA, and break light abs all on. I didn't have any problem initally drive around 10 miles then I feel the car shifting funny but not jerking. I brought in Nelson honda to see what's going on. I really don't have an answer for that. Maybe someone done that can help. Thanks

This happened to me in the dead of winter. Drove all winter with this condition. When it got above freezing for a couple days, everything cleared up. Occasionally I get the condition. But I keep driving. VSA + ABS, sometimes flashing D, sometimes brake light.

old thread - but I'd venture to say she was driving with the parking brake on. all the warning lights turn on because abs and vsa deactivate if a brake system fault is detected. either that or an abs sensor died on the ops car.

This part is probably coincidental but I pressed my trip reset for the first time since I've had my 2008 Honda Accord (one previous owner who really kept the car in great shape) the next day my dash light was lit up. The VSA, ECO and battery lights all came on. While the other lights went off the battery light has not. It's been about a week. The car is driving fine and battery has been tested and is also fine. Any ideas?
