#185 of 195 Low Tire Pressure Indicator ( ! ) wont go off
Jul 30, 2008 (3:01 pm)
I have a 2008 Honda Fit Sport, which I bought 7 months ago. My low tire pressure indicator came on this morning. (I was away for two weeks on vacation so when I turned on the ignition the light came on ). After work I adjusted the tire pressure to the specification on the placard located on the inside of my driver's side door. When I turned the engine on after ensuring the tire pressure was the way it should be, the light did not go off.
The owner's manual says that if the light doesn't go off that I should take it to my dealer. My step father tells me I need a particular machine to reset the sensor and it can cost anywhere between $60-$80 and dealers typically charge you an arm and leg to get it done.
What should I do?

I have TPMS in all of my vehicles and the light always resets itself when the proper pressure is attained.

Actually, after starting it up this morning and driving about a quarter of a mile of the road, the light flicked off. I suppose it did reset itself and I'd panicked over nothing. I'm a little paranoid with this car because it's my first brand new car. All other cars I've had in the past were '87 and '88 Honda Accords and they had all sorts of problems.
So, I'm certainly glad that this turned out to be a false alarm and that everything turned out all right in the end! Nevertheless, I appreciate the feedback!

I took it to the dealer and got a courtesy car for the day. It turned out that one of the tires had 40 pounds (!) of pressure instead of 32. The service manager said that the tire was probably overfilled in Japan and that the pressure monitor light had initially come on but then when nothing was done (I presume on the trip to MD from Japan) that light went off and the TPMS light came on. Go figure.

That's called the dealer dropping the ball.....
Vehicles are typically shipped with over pressured tires to avoid flat spotting.
It was missed during the prep of the vehicle and your dealer is trying to blame it on Japan?
#190 of 195 TPMS Light in '09 Fit Sport AT
Sep 07, 2008 (10:23 am)
Purchased to '09 Fit Sport AT yesterday (9-6-08) and put about 230 miles on it, about 70% freeway miles around 70 mph. Warm day, but not hot (Southern California). The TPMS light seems to be a problem. It first came on after about 90 miles, so took it back to the dealer service. They said they had set the tire pressure to factory setting at delivery and were surprised the light came on. They made an adjustment to the TPMS and reset it and said since this car is so new with these new tires, the settings may take some time to dial in the right settings.
Sure enough, later in the day the TPMS light came on again. So I'll have to take it in again to get this adjusted and reset.
Anyone else seeing this issue with the '09s?
#191 of 195 Service Engine Light On
Oct 18, 2008 (3:44 am)
While driving and coming off the highway, the service engine light on my 2007 Honda Fit Sport 5speed with 73k miles came on. Read the manual and it states its an emissions issue so although car will drive ok, bring it to the dealer. I went back on the highway and tried to engage the cruise control - It now doesn't work. I'm wondering now if the problem is the cruise control or the cruise control doesn't engage when there is the service engine light issue.
Any advise? Thanks!

The cruise control started working normally the next morning. It also looks like the check engine light was due to a dirty air filter. After replacing it, the light came off and hasn't gone on since. Crossing my fingers...
#193 of 195 Check engine warning light
Dec 06, 2011 (9:27 am)
Greetings! My Check engine warning light on my 2007 Honda Fit Sport (95,000 miles) flashed repeatedly on my way to work this morning. I'm afraid to drive it. It began running rough last week, so had the plugs replaced, and it was better for a few days. Now, running rough again, and I have a flashing engine light. suggestions? If I drive this, will I blow the engine? Help! thanks!

Hi, I hope you were able to get this diagnosed. I had he same problem and it was caused by low oil. I was about a quart and a half low.
