Calibrating Your Honda's Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

 

Your Honda Tire Pressure Monitoring System

At Honda of Fort Worth, we know that informed drivers are happy drivers. Today, we want to inform you about the crucial tire pressure monitoring system.

Today, all cars sold in the United States feature a tire pressure monitoring system. This system can warn you when one or more of your tires becomes under-inflated or over-inflated. TPMS technology can help you avoid a tire-related hassle or worse event.

Importantly, TPMS can usually identify situations when a tire is dangerously outside its optimal inflation zone. You only need to understand what to do when you get a warning.

How Do You Know When to Calibrate Your TPMS?

The system's warning light shows an exclamation point over the cross-section of a tire. When this light appears on your gauge array, do not panic. Simply find a safe place to stop your car. If you can see a service station, stop there and find an air compressor to add air to your tire.

After you park your car, check all four tires with an air pressure gauge. The decal affixed to your car's door jamb will tell you the optimal inflation value for your auto's tires. You may also find a damaged tire that will require repair or replacement. Once you have addressed your tire pressure situation, you can safely return to the road.

Whenever you return your Honda's tires to their optimal inflation range, you will need to recalibrate your Honda's TPMS. Watch our video to learn how to do that. Hondas come with one of two calibration systems.
