Reset The Honda TPMS Light Yourself

Quick Easy Steps to Reset Any Honda TPMS Light

Honda TPMS Light

The Honda TPMS -tire pressure monitoring system- keeps tabs on how much air is in your tires. If your tire pressure gets low, the TPMS light will come on. This is an indication that you should check your tire pressures and probably add air. After you’ve inflated the tires properly, sometimes the system needs to be reset and calibrated if the TPMS light stays on. There is probably no need to take your vehicle in for service, as the following few steps should turn the Honda TPMS light off, and are easy to do yourself.

Here’s how to reset the TPMS light on your Honda, no matter how old it is:

Honda Touchscreen

If your car has a touchscreen:

  1. Go to the home screen. Touch settings.
  2. Touch vehicle.
  3. Select TPMS Calibration.
  4. Choose Calibrate.

If your Honda does not have a touchscreen display, you’re still in luck.

  1. Using the steering wheel buttons, navigate to Driver Information.
  2. Go to and select Vehicle Settings.
  3. Choose TPMS Calibration.
  4. Choose Calibrate.

Calibration may take up to 30 minutes to complete while you are driving between 30 and 60 MPH, so be patient.

Some older Hondas may have a TPMS button on the left side of the steering wheel. If your Honda has this, do the following:

  1. Press and hold the button until the light blinks twice.
  2. Once the light blinks, the calibration process has begun.

These simple steps can save you a trip to the dealership or the tire shop, and a lot of money. Now you know how to reset and calibrate the TPMS in your Honda the next time it lights up your dashboard.
