Honda Accord: TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) - When Driving - Driving - Honda Accord 2013-2017 Owner's ManualHonda Accord: TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System)

Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are significantly under-inflated. This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on and a message to appear on the multi-information display*.

The system does not monitor the tires when driving at low speed.

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and altitude change directly affect tire pressure and can trigger the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on.

Tire pressure checked and inflated in:

Warm weather can become under-inflated in colder weather.
Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer weather.

The low tire pressure indicator will not come on as a result of over inflation.

The TPMS may not function properly if tire type and size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and type of tire.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on with a delay or may not come on at all when:

You rapidly accelerate, decelerate, or turn the steering wheel.
You drive on snowy or slippery roads.
Snow chains are used.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on under the following conditions:

A compact spare tire is used.
There is a heavier and uneven load on the tires, such as when towing a trailer, than the condition at calibration.
Snow chains are used.

TPMS Calibration

You must start TPMS calibration every time you:

Adjust the pressure in one or more tires.
Rotate the tires.
Replace one or more tires.

Before calibrating the TPMS:

Set the cold tire pressure in all four tires.

Make sure:

The vehicle is at a complete stop.

 The shift lever is in (N.

The shift lever is in (N.

 The shift lever is in (P.

The shift lever is in (P.

 The ignition switch is in ON .

The ignition switch is in ON .

Press and hold the TPMS button until the low

Press and hold the TPMS button until the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator blinks twice, indicating the calibration process has begun.

If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator does not blink, confirm the above conditions then press and hold the TPMS button again.
The calibration process finishes automatically.

You can calibrate the system from the customized

You can calibrate the system from the customized features on the multi-information display.

1. Press Vehicle  button to select Vehicle Settings, then press the SEL/RESET button.
 - TPMS Calibration appears on the display.
2. Press the SEL/RESET button.
 - The display switches to the customization setup screen, where you can select Cancel or Calibrate.
3. Press the Calibrate, then press the SEL/RESET button. button and select Calibrate, then press the SEL/RESET button.
 - Calibration Started screen appears, then the display returns to the customization menu screen.

If the Calibration Failed to Start message appears, repeat steps 2-3.
The calibration process finishes automatically.

TPMS cannot be calibrated if a compact spare tire is installed.
The calibration process requires approximately 30 minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between 30-60 mph (48-97 km/h).
During this period, if the ignition is turned on and the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you may notice the low tire pressure indicator comes on briefly. This is normal and indicates that the calibration process is not yet complete.

You can calibrate the system using the audio/ information screen.

If the snow chains are installed, remove them before calibrating the TPMS.

If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on even when the properly inflated specified regular tires are installed, have the vehicle checked by a dealer.

We recommend that the tires be replaced with the same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a dealer for details.
