Ok, some of you may know I was in quite the accident with my 2006 Ridgeline last november. I was able to catch a good deal on another 2006 Ridge (same colour and everything). Bought it last March after I got out of the hopsital.

This Ridge cleared the recall no problem.

My issue is she has some issues.

VTM4 light on after driving for 2-3 minutes
TPMS light (the text light not a tire image)
Check engine light

Inner Rockers need replaced/repaired

When I bought it the guy was just getting rid of it cause it had SMOD. Got the trans and rad flushed (new rad too).

I need to tackle the lights now as especially the VTM4 light turns off AWD when it is on based on my reading.

Plan for Nov8th appointment in order of importance.

1. flush rad to make sure no trans fluid in rad fluid
2. drain/flush VTM4 fluid (replace sensor if needed)
3. TPMS/check engine light
4. oil change with 100% synthetic fluids


Timing belt was done recently according to the prev owner.

Anythign else guys/gals I have missed and should pay attention to?

vtm-4 light can have a number of related issues.

Check engine light is likely throwing codes. Have you had those checked out?

@speedlever or anyone

I am confused by the tire chart on this site. Can the tires REALLY fit without cutting on a 2006 RTL?

I've generally stuck with OEM tires. I tried a different tire than the LTX once and had balance issues, so went back to the LTX.
