Until few days back everything was fine and I move to California from chicago leaving my car there for few days while it gets picked up by transport company. When transport company came to pick up my car it did not start and ABS, Brake System and VSA lights turned on(Not a fault of transport company as my friend was there when this problem started). So they started my car using jumper cable and dropped it here but this time car started without jumper but brake light and other lights are still on
Car is driven 7000 miles with service done few months back.
Please advice what can I do and cheapest way of getting it fixed through dealer

    Thanks for quick response I really appreciate it. I was wondering if I can get little bit more info from an expert here so that dealership would not be able to add unnecessary charges as I was reading forums where people had to spend lot of money for getting this fixed.

    The only thing I can suggest , is to have the ABS system scanned at the dealer. Low voltage can set all sorts of 'false' codes , so best thing to do is start with the battery check(Hondas' not exactly using the greatest batteries latetly, in my opinion). If they find a blown fuse , they may question how it was jumped.12 volt battery is 3yr/36K miles on that.IF they give any other cause for the warning lights , get the codes (if any) and post them here.
