Default 2008 Honda Accord v6. ABS/ VSA lights

Both the VSA and ABS lights have been on for months. Donít remember when they turned on, havenít noticed anything weird while driving. Code 66-1 came up but Iím getting mixed info on what that is. Any info/tip would be helpful. Is this fixable at home or should I let the dealership handle it?

VSA & ABS both use the wheel-speed sensors. I don't have the error-code list, but if that code is for a wheel sensor that would explain both.

IF its a sensor there's a few things you can do.
- Look for wiring problems like cut or pinched wires from the sensor
- If you can take apart brakes/hubs, check the sensor itself for magnetic crud buildup on the sensor.
- Measure electrical resistance vs. a value that it should be (anyone have a 2008 shop manual?)

And if it's anything like my daughter in laws 08 Pilot, she takes it to the dealer to clear the code, as they haven't found out why it turns on the lights, as there's no codes found.
