Honda Civic: VSA® On and Off
This button is on the driver side control panel.
To turn the VSA® system on and off, press and hold it until you hear a beep.
VSA® will stop and the indicator will come on.
To turn it on again, press the (VSA® OFF) button until you hear a beep.
VSA® is turned on every time you start the engine, even if you turned it off the last time you drove the vehicle.
Without VSA®, your vehicle will have normal braking and cornering ability, but it will not have VSA® traction and stability enhancement.
In certain unusual conditions when your vehicle gets stuck in shallow mud or fresh snow, it may be easier to free it with the VSA® temporarily switched off.
When the VSA® system is off, the traction control system is also off. You should only attempt to free your vehicle with the VSA® off if you are not able to free it when the VSA® is on.
Immediately after freeing your vehicle, be sure to switch VSA® on again. We do not recommend driving your vehicle with the VSA® and traction control systems switched off.
If the low tire pressure/TPMS*, low tire pressure*, or TPMS indicator* comes on or blinks, the VSA® system comes on automatically. In this case, you cannot turn the system off by pressing the button.
You may hear a motor sound coming from the engine compartment while system checks are being performed immediately after starting the engine or while driving. This is normal.
