Have searched and read many a topic regarding the VSA system and problems - But unable to find any similar to my issue.


Brief history 


Bought the Accord 2 years ago with the VSA light on - Was due to a knackered rear sensor. Replaced sensor with a non OE part.


Fault cleared - and ran fine for a few weeks / months.


Ever since then, when starting the car - Randomly the VSA light would come on for a second, then turn off as normal (Would kick the VSA fault message on the LCD on the clocks also but would go off instantly)


Always kicks out the code 84-1 (Sensor logic) - This is cleared every time and corrected every using a Snap-On scanner - Unsure of exact model but can find out at work tomorrow. No other code is ever displayed / stored. The scanner re-teaches the neutral positions as per the error code



This has now been going on for around one and a half years :blink:


Does anyone have any idea's as to why my car can't seem to remember the neutral positions ?

I also replaced a sensor with an aftermarket when I first got the Tourer. Now with the MOT passed, I get the VSA and other two lights crop up once every three weeks or so, more often if it has been wet on the roads (so it might be a faulty connector letting in damp), but I'm also suspicious it might be down to having to park up with two wheels on the kerb some nights.


To drive off in the morning requires a full lock to the left to reverse down the ramp behind before turning near right lock, meaning there are different wheel speeds that the ECU might not like.

Petrol or diesel vsa can even be down to faulty or worn tyres there is so many factors it's a bit of bxxxx to diagnose.
