Your Honda Pilot is equipped with a Variable Torque Management 4-Wheel-Drive System (VTM-4). The system turns on and off automatically. When it lights up, it means that your car has less traction at that particular moment. Normally the VTM-4 light is nothing to worry about.
If this indicator is lit, one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. You should stop and check your tires as soon as possible. The VTM-4 lock is temporarily deactivated when the vehicle speed exceeds 30 km/h.
The Variable Torque Management 4WD System (VTM-4) automatically transfers different engine torques to the rear wheels when traction is low. If more traction is needed when your MDX is stuck or likely to be stuck, you can use the VTM-4 lockout knob to increase torque to the rear wheels.
Press the “VTM-4 Lock” button so that the indicator light goes out. Shift the shift lever to “D” (Drive).
The system turns on and off automatically. When it lights up, it means that your car has less traction at that particular moment. Usually the VTM-4 light is nothing to worry about. It just means your torque management system is working to compensate for adverse road conditions.
Honda Pilot is not always in 4WD as it is automatic and can detect when the rear wheels need to be engaged. Honda’s Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System constantly monitors road conditions to deliver torque to different wheels.
I-VTM4 or Intelligent Variable Torque Management is an all-wheel drive system that dynamically detects the amount of torque needed in each wheel axle and sends the right amount of power to each of them accordingly. It can even distribute power to either the left or right wheel depending on the traction needed.
A steady glow usually means something less serious, but a flashing check engine light indicates your vehicle’s engine is having serious problems and requires immediate service. If your check engine light is flashing in your Honda Pilot, we strongly recommend that you do not drive the vehicle and schedule a Honda service today.
Viral Transport Medium (VTM) enables the safe transfer of viruses, chlamydia and mycoplasma for further research, including conventional cell culture methods, diagnostic tests and molecular biology techniques.
A flashing check engine light indicates a much more serious problem. Most of the time this means that the engine stops and unburned fuel gets into the exhaust system. This increases the temperature of the catalyst and can cause critical damage.
You can disable it by pressing and holding the VTM-4’s lock button for two seconds. But you can shift the power distribution to the front or rear wheels by pressing a different button. You can also switch the gear selector from park to drive and back again while stationary, or switch the car off and on again.
Well, VSA stands for Vehicle Stability Assist and is Honda’s computer system that ensures the tires have traction to keep you on the road. If both the check engine light and the VSA light come on, it means that the computer has determined that there may be something wrong with the system.
You should always use genuine Honda fluids in your 2021 Pilot. If you regularly drive your Pilot at low speed at high altitudes or frequently tow trailers, it is recommended that you replace the differential fluid at the 7,500 mile mark and then again every 15,000 miles. p>
