The Tire Pressure Monitoring System
Honda’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) functions exactly as the title suggests; it monitors your Honda’s tire pressure and rolling radius. If the tires are under-inflated, the TPMS will alert the driver with an icon beside the speedometer. If the icon appears, it is a good idea to check your tire pressure!
The TPMS must be calibrated each time your tires are rotated, changed, or if the air pressure is adjusted. Calibration requires you to drive your Honda for roughly 30 minutes, at a speed between 30 and 60 mph. But first, you must put your Tire Pressure Monitoring System into calibration mode. This method is slightly different for Hondas that have colour display screens and the touch screen.
Calibrating the TPMS with the Colour Display:
- First, press “Clock/Menu”
- Then, select “Settings”
- Next, choose “Vehicle Settings”
- Then, select “TPMS Calibration”
- Click on “Calibrate”
- Now, drive your Honda for around 30 minutes, at speeds of 30-60 mph to complete the calibration.
Calibrating the TPMS with the Touch Screen:
- Press “Home”
- Then, select “settings”
- Next, choose “Vehicle”
- Now, click on “TPMS Calibration”
- Finally, choose “Calibrate” and drive your Honda for around 30 minutes, at speeds of 30-60 mph to complete the calibration
