How To Reset The Honda TPMS

September 13th, 2019 by

When it comes to routine maintenance, the air pressure of your tires is often overlooked, but having the correct pressure in your Honda vehicle’s tires is crucial to ensure a safe, efficient, and comfortable ride. Low tire pressure can cause excessive wear on your tires, make your vehicle less efficient, as well as contribute to a dangerous blowout or other safety issues.

Fortunately for Westerville drivers, many Honda vehicles for sale, including the reliable Honda Accord, come equipped with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) that helps keep an eye on your tires to inspire confidence on the road and will alert you when the pressure falls below a certain threshold through an indicator light on your vehicle’s instrument panel. This alert is typically yellow and looks like a cutaway tire with an exclamation point to indicate low tire inflation pressure.

When this happens, be sure to check the tire pressure in all four tires, visit our Westerville Honda service center for tire service, and fill the tires to the proper pressure. The TPMS needs to be recalibrated each time you adjust the tire pressure, rotate the tires, or replace a tire, and the knowledgeable technicians at our Honda service center are here to help you do so from the comfort of your own home.

Learn how to recalibrate the TPMS in the video above or the steps below! To start the process (make sure the transmission is on and the car is in park) and then:

On models with a physical TPMS button: 

  • Press and hold the button until the TPMS indicator light blinks twice on your instrument panel, signifying that calibration has begun.
  • Wait three seconds and then repeat this step two more times.
  • The TPMS light will blink twice and then once to indicate that calibration is complete.

On vehicles without a TPMS button:

  • Drivers can access this process through their display touchscreen by opening settings and selecting “vehicle” from the list.
  • At the top of the menu, simply tap “TPMS Calibration” and select “calibrate” to begin calibration.
  • When finished, drivers will be able to hit “ok” and go back to the home screen.
