Honda How-To: Reset the Tire Pressure Monitoring System Light
So you’re driving, and your “Low Tire Pressure” warning light goes off. You pull over at the nearest gas station and check your tires. You fill up the tire(s) with low pressure and get back on the road, but the warning light still won’t turn off. Why is it doing that? This is a common issue for Honda owners, so here’s a quick guide on how to reset the TPMS light in your Honda.
Any time you reinflate your tires, change a tire, or get them rotated, the TPMS needs to be recalibrated before it’ll work properly again. Once you start the recalibration process, it takes about 30 minutes of driving between 30-65 miles per hour. Then it will stop automatically, and your tire pressure monitoring system is good to go.
