#310 of 336 New Sensors Self Calibrating to Computer ? ?
Nov 05, 2010 (7:46 pm)
I think not but here is why I am asking.
After putting my snow tires on new rims with no sensors (replacing originals with sensors ) it took quite a few miles or days for the TPMS light to come on. So I ordered sensors from a local tire shop and they came in today and they installed them this afternoon . They removed the wheels from the vehicle but didn't even have to remove the tires off the rims or re-balance. They just let the air out and opened the tire by the valve to replace them. When done I asked how they go about matching the sensors to the computer and they said they match automatically sometimes. TPMS light is out and VSA switch works for on or off.
They said if the TPMS light does come on after some driving they will look after it then but said they will need me to bring in my operators manual because they are all different to set.
I explained that I do not believe it gives that information in the owners manual or at least I could not find it .
What say ye all ? ?
Does the manual give instructions or is there somewhere on line to find it ?
Does it have to be done by some equipment that only a Honda dealership has if they don't have the right equipment ? ?
I may be wrong but I think it is reading the settings from the previous original tires and will eventually kick out of that mode and put the TPMS light back on.

#311 of 336 2011 CR-V -- TPMS Light on after 100 miles
Mar 13, 2011 (8:13 am)
Took delivery and a few days and 100 miles later, the "TPMS" light (not low pressure) came on and stayed on. I checked tire pressure and all tires were inflated to 45 lbs straight from the dealer! I read at least one other thread about this sort off thing happening through poor car prep at the dealership.
Deflated all tires to ~30lbs cold. Car has been driven for several days now and 150 miles and the light did not go off.
Is there anyway to reset the system without going to the dealer? Thanks.

Did you also check the spare tire? If you did and it was also OK, then it is most likely a bad sensor on one of the wheels and less likely some electronics further upstream. As this is a irritation and not a safety issue, you may want to wait until it is time for changing the breakin oil.

I will definately check the spare. Thanks.
I thought if the "TPMS" light is on steady that other safety systems (traction control?) will not function? This is what concerns me, not the dash light. If I am wrong, please let me know so I do not waste an early morning at the dealer.

Well, I came down to these three options for my 2008 2WD CR-V LX (only 20K miles and tires are 2/32). These tires will be for a humid warm/hot south TX.
1) Bridgestone Dueler Alenza for $720 (Discount Tire)
2) BFGoodrich LongTrail T/A Tour for $630 (Sam's)
3) Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring for $700 (Sam's)
These include installation, road hazard warranty...etc. This is my wife and kids car so safety, comfort, and longevity are top on the list. Your help/advice/experience would be really appreciated. Any experience with mpg?

I got Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring few months back and they are excellent tires. The road noise is reduced significantly and ride is better and smooth. The mpg I am getting is about 26 for mix city and highway around 60~40.

Took to dealer last weekend and they reset the system. All has been okay since. Dealer tried to chalk it up to the use of an assessory 12V outlet (he said he has seen it before???). Then I advised of the improper prep of the car (tires overinflated by 15lb). Tech then said the (!) would have gone on if overinflated, which I believe is not correct...(!) is only for underinflation.

I had the same thing. I took delivery and didn't make it home (19 miles) when the TPMS light came on. Checked the tires and they were 43 psi. Wrote the salesman an email he had the service manager call me. I lowered the pressure to 30 psi and the light stayed on had to go back to the dealer to have them correct the problem. I was told the reason for the high pressure which is usually 60 psi is so that the cars do not bounce on the trailer trucks when they are delivered. When I looked at the prep sheets you can see that someone just went through the pages putting check marks on each item.
