2003 Honda Pilot VTM-4 issues
Got a 2003 Honda Pilot with 200,300 miles on er. Regular maintenance, engine purrs and trans “shifts like a dream”; success story of how regular maintenance will carry a good vehicle a long time.
VTM-4 light pops on the dashboard after driving for 30 seconds or so/ going 20-25 ish miles per hour.
However, going at lower speeds (below the aforementioned speed) I can still activate VTM-4.
This has been happening for a few months, so I did a drain and refill of the rear diff with Honda genuine VTM-4 fluid, as well as changed out the VTM-4 sensor (aka oil temperature sensor), with a Honda genuine oil temperature sensor.
No joy... VTM-4 light still pops on.
I haven’t actually put it up on jack stands to see if all 4 wheels are engaging.
ps-this is one of the greatest informational hubs on the internet
Yea I’ll definitely do that.
I drove it around on some wet grass and the 4wd seemed to be working, but again, right when I start approaching 25 mph, VTM-4 light goes on.
Checked all the wiring going to the rear diff, no fraying and everything seems to be plugged in.
This car is a great vehicle . I hope to restore it to its former glory.
Also, Scotty, I appreciate the response!
