Q: VSA problem

asked by on
  1. VSA problem is within the transaxle system
  2. Logic sensor failure
  3. Internal power source failure
  4. Left rear TPMS failure.

My car has 130000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The VSA light is on indicating that the traction control is active. This will turn on the brake system and try to control the vehicle in the event a tire will slip. The wheel sensor on the left rear is not responding and due to that it has thrown the logic sensor failure and internal power source failure. I recommend replacing the left rear TPMS (tire pressure monitoring sensor) and this will fix the issue you are having. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your issues, then seek out a technician for an inspection of the VSA warning light and all other relevant systems so that this can be addressed appropriately.
