Default VSA and ABS indicator lights on

The two VSA lights and ABS light come on when starting my 06 CRV, stay ob until, as I drive, I hear a loud click much like the sound ouf automatic locks engaging, then, after a few seconds, come back on and stay on.

Our CRV only has about 1,000 miles. Any suggestions about the cause of the problems appreciated.

Broken ABS wheel sensor OR simply ice/snow in the hubs confusing the ABS wheel sensor to belive the wheel is not spinning is where id put my money (And probably Cruise Control out of order)

But first check the fuse too it CAN be that simple

You may want to check your brake fluid level and make sure it's full, too.

I'd definitely return it to the dealer and get the problem on record even if it is a fuse.

Good luck and keep us posted; hopefully you can include some snow pics with your V for us.

skyout and swedish guy - thanks for the quick reponses. I did take it to a dealer and I'm waiting for a sensor. I asked about a fuse but they thought it was the sensor in the left rear wheel. No charge becuase it's under warranty. I hope the new sensor will solve the problem.

This may not be related but we're also getting low gas mileage - 16.4 mpg in city driving and not much better for mixed city/highway. My wife drives the V most of the time and she has a light foot on the accelerator; both of us have always gotten average or above average mileage for the vehciles we've driven (Prelude, Camry, Accord).

Is that the US gallon or UK gallon that you use for mpg calculations?

US gallon is about 3.75 liter or something like that. UK gallon is about 4 liters.

If you ever drive on QEW, there is no such thing as light foot on accelerator. Everyone does 80 mph (US) and the cops are not even bothering. The limit is 62 mph (100 kmh)

..and just HOW would that make the ABS and VSA lights ( and not teh brake warning light) go on then??

MPG CAN go down with a broken sensor IF the car have an adaptive automatic transmission since the the electronic belive the wheel is stuck or something BUT id say wait a while until its "worn in" the manual says 1000 kms wheil my dealer said it can take even up to 10000 kms until you get a real good MPG

My bad. I was thinking about the conventional brakes when I saw "ABS", which the V converts to w/ABS indicators on.
