Honda Warning Light Triangle with Exclamation Point

It’s Friday, and you’re ready to start your weekend off right. You’re cruising down the highway with your favorite music blasting when something on your dashboard catches your eye. A little triangle with an exclamation point has lit up on your dashboard. For many drivers, this may be stressful, frightening, or just plain annoying. Not to worry, though. Our Ridgeland Honda service team is here to help you to decipher the most common Honda warning lights, including what the yellow triangle with exclamation point actually means.

When that warning light triangle with an exclamation point pops up, there’s a simple explanation. It means that there is something wrong with your Honda vehicle’s Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) system.

This system helps to stabilize the vehicle during cornering if the car turns more or less than desired. It also assists you in maintaining traction while accelerating on loose or slippery road surfaces in the Madison area. It does this by regulating the engine’s output, and by selectively applying braking.

What Should I Do If the Triangle with Exclamation Point Comes On in My Car?

If the triangle with exclamation point Honda warning light (aka, VSA® light) comes on while you’re driving, pull to the side of the road, somewhere safe, and turn off your engine. Reset the system by restarting the engine, and watch the VSA® system indicator. If the VSA® light and exclamation point remains on, or comes back on while driving, bring your vehicle in to our Honda service center in Ridgeland, MS. We’ll be more than happy to take a look and get you back on the road as soon as possible! We’re just a short drive from Madison and Brandon, MS.
