How To Reset Honda Tire Pressure/TPMS Light

The Honda TPMS light will come on when one or more than one of the vehicle tires air pressure falls below the recommended PSI. Driving with the incorrect tire pressure can be extremely dangerous for both those in the vehicle and other drivers on the road. 

How to reset Honda tire pressure/TPMS light depends on the model of the vehicle. For newer models that have a touchscreen, select Settings in the home screen, followed by vehicle > TPMS Calibration > Calibrate. Keep in mind that this only works for Honda vehicles with a touchscreen.

If your Honda is an older model that has steering wheel buttons, you can reset the TPMS by utilizing those buttons. Press the Menu button, followed by Customize Settings > TPMS Calibration > Initialize > Yes. This will reset the TPMS. To exit the settings, simply press Menu.

Even older models that don’t have the touchscreen display can still reset the tire pressure light by using those steering wheel buttons to enter the Driver Information, followed by Setting screen > TPMS Calibration > Calibrate.

There are even certain models of Honda vehicles, typically older ones, that have a TPMS button located to the left of the steering wheel. If you press and hold the button, the warning light will blink twice to signal the TPMS has been reset.

Refer to your owner’s manual to find out how to reset Honda tire pressure/TPMS light for the exact model of your Honda vehicle.

While resetting the tire pressure is an easy process, you will first need to know where the TPMS button is located on your vehicle.

The TPMS button on a Honda is usually located to the left of the steering wheel or beneath the steering wheel. Although the exact location can vary from one Honda model to the next. If you are having trouble locating it on your Honda, refer to the owner’s manual.

Honda TPMS/Tire Pressure Monitor/Sensor Problem

A Honda TPMS sensor problem may not seem like a serious problem, but it is not something you should put off. When the sensors fail, they cannot properly monitor the air pressure of your vehicle’s tires, and under-inflation is a leading cause of vehicle tire failure. When a tire pressure is low it increases friction, which, in turn, increases the chance of a tire blow out. 

A Honda TPMS/tire pressure monitor/sensor problem will typically need to be addressed by a trusted mechanic. Before you take the vehicle into the shop, however, try resetting the tire pressure light to see if that corrects the problem. 

Honda Tire Pressure Light Blinking

While most people are aware that when the tire pressure light comes on, it signals that one or more tires has low air pressure. But what does it mean when the tire pressure light is blinking?

When the Honda tire pressure light is blinking, it is usually a sign that the battery is low. The tire pressure sensors rely on a battery to keep them going, and when the battery starts to die, the tire pressure light will begin to blink.

Another potential cause of a tire pressure light blinking is a faulty sensor. Visit your trusted Honda-certified mechanic to have them check the tire pressure sensors. 

Honda TPMS/Tire Pressure Light Keeps Coming On

While the tire pressure light is a useful tool, it can quickly become annoying if it keeps coming back on even when the tire pressure is fine. 

A Honda TPMS/tire pressure light that keeps coming on is typically due to a malfunction in the sensor. This can usually be fixed by either recalibrating the sensors in the vehicle settings or replacing the sensors. 

Honda TPMS/Tire Pressure Light Won’t Go Off

It is not uncommon for Honda owners to experience the dreaded TPMS warning light that just won’t go away. What’s even worse is that the light will keep shining even when your tires have the correct air pressure.

When your Honda TPMS/tire pressure light won’t go off, the issue is usually due to a software issue with the monitoring system. Thankfully, a software upgrade will typically fix this problem. This does, however, require visiting a Honda-certified mechanic, who can perform the software upgrade.

Honda TPMS/Tire Pressure Light Which Tire

Your tire pressure light just came on to alert you that one or more of your tires has low air pressure. But how do you know which one it is? 

When the Honda TPMS/tire pressure light turns you will naturally want to know which tire has the low pressure. Some Honda models have a display that shows all 4 tires and their current air pressure. For vehicles without this display, you will need to manually check the air pressure on each tire.

Tire gauges are relatively inexpensive and readily available, and can accurately tell you the air pressure of the tire in a matter of minutes. There are also some gas stations that offer tire air stations which feature a tire gauge built into the air hose.

Honda Tire Pressure Light After New Tires

You just purchased and installed new tires on your Honda, and you’re ready to hit the road when the tire pressure light starts shining. 

When the Honda tire pressure light comes on after having new tires installed, it typically just means you need to reset the TPMS on the vehicle. Experts recommend resetting the TPMS on your vehicle every time the tires are changed or rotated. 

Some manufacturers even recommend resetting the tire pressure light anytime you add air to the tires. Thankfully, resetting the light is a relatively simple process and can be done on the touchscreen display, steering wheel buttons, or TPMS reset button. The exact method of how to reset this light varies from one model to the next.

Honda Tire Pressure Light After Tire Rotation

Some Honda owners have experienced the TPMS light coming on after they have had their tires rotated. When they check the air pressure, it comes back at the recommended PSI. 

The Honda tire pressure light should be reset after the vehicle’s tires have been rotated. Various car and tire manufactures even recommend resetting the tire pressure light whenever a tire rotation has been done. 

Honda TPMS Relearn

The Honda TPMS relearn sequence activates all the TPMS sensors on your vehicle. If these sensors have been recently replaced or repaired, you may have to go through the relearn process to ensure they function as designed. 

How to access the Honda TPMS relearn will vary depending on the year and model of your vehicle. For models 2014 and newer, you will need to release the parking brake, turn the ignition ON and the engine OFF, and then push and hold the TPMS button.

The TPMS light will blink twice to signal that the calibration and relearning process has begun. This can take several minutes.

If your vehicle is older than 2014, then you may need an OBD-11 dongle to complete the relearn process. To find out how to start the relearn process for your exact Honda vehicle, check the owners’ manual.

How To Reset Honda Tire Pressure Light

Resetting the Honda tire pressure light should only be done after you have checked to ensure all tires have the correct air pressure. Resetting it without first checking the air pressure could mean you are driving around on tires with incorrect pressure. 

To reset Honda tire pressure light, use the steering wheel buttons to navigate through the display. Select the Menu button and then select Customize Settings > TPMS Calibration > Initialize > Yes. The reset process will occur automatically. 

For models with touchscreens, you can navigate to the settings screen and then click on TPMS Calibration under the vehicle screen. Select Calibrate to start the resetting process. If your Honda doesn’t have any type of display, then it probably has a TPMS button located to the left of the steering wheel. Press this button to reset the tire pressure light.
