How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Is your tire pressure light still on after you’ve inflated your tires? You may have to reset it. The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an important part of vehicle safety and it’s important to make sure that it is working as it should. If you find that your TPMS light is on even after you have added air to the tires, follow these steps, or bring your vehicle to the Honda of Greeley service center near Ft. Collins.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

After you have added the correct amount of air to your tires, the tire pressure light should automatically turn off. If it remains on, try these steps:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph for 10 to 15 minutes. This will usually work to reset the sensor the next time you start the car.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the car. Press and hold the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is usually located beneath the steering wheel. If you can’t find it, check your Honda user’s manual.

The following methods of resetting your TPMS are somewhat more involved. If you are uncomfortable trying them yourself, please feel free to schedule a service appointment at Honda of Greeley, we’ll be happy to take care of it for you.

  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over the recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Make sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds to discharge any power still stored in the vehicle. Then reconnect the battery. This will reset the TPMS light, as well as any other pre-set electronics in the vehicle.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

A flashing tire pressure light is often a sign that the TPMS sensor battery needs to be replaced. It could also indicate that there is a problem with one of the sensors. If your tire pressure light is flashing, it’s important to bring your vehicle in to our Service Center to let our certified technicians diagnose exactly what the problem is. We’ll get you safely back on the road in no time at all.
