...however they definitely won't make it as easy as clicking "Save PDF", you probably have to use a 4k monitor and take screenshots page by page, all just to get the crucial repair information that should really be public domain knowledge.
I'm happy to report I was wrong, Honda's Official service information website does in fact let you download PDF's and print service instructions!

Not everything is formatted properly when printing, so it helps to have a big monitor and take screenshots, but I'm really glad Honda didn't put any silly restrictions on saving the information. Note if you are interested: make sure to use Edge or IE, their payment system doesn't like Chrome:

It's not the free and open solution I would prefer, but for the price of $25 and about 8 hours of my life I was able to save over 240 troubleshooting docs, service notes, repair guides, system descriptions, and component location diagrams... not too bad I think.

Feel free to use this as a guide, Honda's system is hard to navigate and everything has to be searched for by keyword. And be sure to click on "Old Search" on the top right, the default search system is horrible and slow.

Here's the full list of what I thought could be useful in the future:

I was amazed at the list of different subsystems within the VSA system!

VSA System Description - ABS Control
VSA System Description - Agile Handling Assist Control
VSA System Description - Automatic Brake Hold
VSA System Description - Brake Assist Control
VSA System Description - EBD Control
VSA System Description - Engine Drag Torque Control
VSA System Description - Hill Start Assist Control
VSA System Description - Hydraulic Boost Failure Compensation

I knew that the drive and traction systems in the gen5 were a step up from prior generations. But I had no idea there were that many purpose focused subsystems in VSA.

Yes the system description pages are wonderful for learning about everything going on behind the scenes, for example I had no idea they could use the ABS/VSA mechanisms to compensate for a failure in the brake booster!

Honda said:
...If the electric brake booster system malfunctions, the operating force of the brake pedal becomes larger than under normal conditions. In this case, the hydraulic boost failure compensation uses the pressurization control of the VSA system to reduce the operating force of the brake pedal...

Thanks - I had read the system would block you after a session of excessive saves. With the price hike the 30 day option is pretty much out of my price range so it's good to know what can be done in just a day.

What would you estimate is the percentage of the docs you downloaded? Is that list half of the topics you found, most? Or I suppose what I'm asking is how hard is it to 'find' all the info on our car to decide if it's worth a save.

It's not terrible, you can list all files and browse manually, and in a day it's not too hard to go through most of the interesting stuff, but not knowing what was in there I had to read every title one by one and there are thousands of documents so I was pretty spent by the end.

In marathon sessions like you did... I usually end up seeing whatever it is... over and over again in my dreams that night! :ROFLMAO:

Hopefully you got a reasonable nights sleep that night. :)
