How to Calibrate the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)?

TPMS Settings Honda Insight

Before you get started with a Honda, it's important to understand how you can calibrate it so that you can assess the state of your tires more accurately. Through this system, you can accurately look at whether your tires are underinflated or overinflated. Let's say that you see the TPMS light come on through your dashboard. In this way, you can fill your tires up and make the necessary repairs to them.

Where to Find the Recommended Pressure

You will see the recommended level of tire pressure in the door of the vehicle. The label will be called the tire and loading information. Here, you will see what they recommend for the loading of the tires. How much you should put into the tires will depend on the type of vehicle.

How to Begin the Process of Calibration?

To begin, first, you should make sure that you have turned on the ignition. Before you start the process of calibration, you should also check to make sure that you have set the transmission into park because you don't want the car to start rolling away while you're putting air into the tires. You can also put it into neutral if you have a manual transmission. You will want to look for a button that sits over to the left of the steering wheel. It should look similar to the TPMS button that shows up on the interface. It will be the same icon. If you see this button, you will want to push the button and hold it until after you have seen the indicator show up on your screen. During the process, you will see that the icon blinks twice, and this indicates that it has begun the process of calibration.

What if You Don't Have a TPMS Button?

Let's say that you don't see a TPMS button. What do you do in that situation? Instead of pressing a button there, you will most likely find it on the steering wheel of the car. It will be either the up arrow or the down arrow. After holding onto this long enough, you should see a display that says, "Vehicle Settings." After you have done this, you will press on the button that says, "Select Reset." It will say something along these lines. Once you have done this, you will see a TPMS button, and you will press the select reset button one more time as a way of bringing up the screen. Lastly, you will have to use the arrow buttons as a way of choosing to calibrate the tire pressure monitoring system. Press the select reset button one more time. After you have done these things, the calibration process will begin in full swing. Be aware, it can take some time for this process to complete. In addition, you will need to drive your car for an estimated 30 minutes driving at speed between 30 miles per hour and 60 miles per hour.
