    So, my wife called me last week on the way to the airport. She was approx. 45 miles away and both the check engine light and the traction control lights came on. She stated that it seemed like the vehicle was misfiring. I drove to meet my wife, switched vehicles and found out the oil was 2...

    Background: 2013 EX-L, about 55,000 miles on it, just had the piston rings +3 plugs replaced. Shortly after, I stumbled on this information about the VCM and have a VCM Tuner II on order and wanted to check on a few things for the install. Funny side note: my wife and I would try to coax the car...

    Hello all, I am considering purchasing a 2014 Odyssey EX-L with 73,000 from a private owner who just had major engine repairs done due to VCM issues.

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me! So I bought a VCM Tuner II a couple years back when i purchased a 2017 Odyssey.

    I just saw a post on an ody Facebook group that someone has managed to turn off VCM on their ECU (while it's on a bench), using Tactrix Openport 2.0 has anyone heard of this before or can test this?

    Hello all, new to the forum but have read a fair few posts here in my quest to fix my 2008 Odyssey EXL. I bought it around the beginning of January 2022 to replace my wife's old Grand Caravan that got hit. Got it for a pretty good deal, $3500, and has about 150,000 miles. Was told it needed a...

    First-time poster and thanks for all the info. A couple of days ago my check engine light was flashing and disabled my LDW, FCW, and traction.

    Just introducing myself because I want to order a VCMuzzler II from DM user @verbatim, but I am not able to DM because I have not participated in discussions.

    Ok quick rundown of my ody so far. 2008 touring purchased early November 2021 with 159k on the clock. It needed an alignment and I wanted an inspection, so I took it to a “reputable” well reviews Indy shop, though NOT a Honda specialist. Day of the appointment the CEL came on. They did...
  15. 2011 - 2017 Odyssey
    My wife has decided she wants to move on from the Odyssey, so we’re likely trading it in and I need to remove the VCM Tuner II. Is there anything special I should do to remove it to prevent throwing codes? I feel like I remember reading somewhere to disconnect from the battery first, but can’t...

    My 2012 EX-L with 55K started acting sluggish in low speeds and check engine light & VSA light came on. Dealer pulled code P0302 and says spark plugs and piston rings need replaced. I found out in this great forum there was a class action lawsuit on the VCM issue, which appears to be the...

    I'm going to pick up this van (2012 Honda Odyssey one owner 165,000 MI) it was a local trade in due to a check engine light that the owner did not want to mess with. The dealer put $2,900 of work into the vehicle (documents attached). Do you think the vehicle needed piston rings because of the...

    This thread explains all the key details regarding VCM. Rather than re-explaining everything about VCM to every new forum member, they can simply be directed here. Self-service FTW! While there will be plenty of discussion in this thread, this first post contains the key information, so reading...
