need non srt mechanical help

hey guys, need some advice. we are having some issues with our honda odyssey, and with my wife getting ready to deliver our second son, i dont want to have to worry about the safety of her car. the issue at hand is the Vehicle Stability Assistance is coming on at random times almost causing accidents. it came on with me driving yesterday i was accelerating in a straight line to merge on the interstate and all the sudden the vsa comes on and throws the abs, the car behind us swerved to avoid us. it began a couple of weeks ago and is increasing in frequency. the dealer says the have no idea why it would come on. they said they would replace the vsa control module under warranty, but only if the tech could reproduce the symptom. of course 2 days without a van and they say they cant get it do anything. i could leave it with them until they reproduce, or pay out of pocket $800 and be throwing a part at it, or just cut losses and get rid of it. any ideas on the cause or opinions on solution are going to be greatly appreciated. thanks

no codes thrown. the vsa light always flashes (little ! inside a triangle) when the incidents happen.

sounds like a total BS system.

ya tried an Odyssey forum?????

the dealer probably won't do it, but can it be deactivated with out screwin with other system.
might have to find an independent Honda shop that can do it. probably just have to remove a fuse.

Have you replaced the tires recently? ..... Is the correct amount of air in the tires?

.... Sounds simple, but my Mother had a BMW station wagon that did the same thing. It almost killed her one day... turned out to be the tires were too narrow and the traction control sensor was freaking out because of it.

you can deactivate the vca by switch. the damn thing is covered under warranty if they could figure out what the hell is wrong with it. i would try the other honda dealer, but they replaced the high tech motormount thing used with the cylinder deactivation..........and forgot to tigthen the front cradle back when they were done......... and couldnt figure out why it had a worse front end vibration after. no real good mechanics around here for honda just part throwers

I searched the 'net about your problem. I found a Honda Pilot message board where a guy had a problem with the steering sensor. Apparently, it's all tied in together . . .
