How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Hand Holding Tire Gauge to Tire

Is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light on in your Honda car, truck, or SUV, even after you have made sure that your tires have the correct amount of air? This guide from the service team at Rockingham Honda, walks you through the steps on how to reset the tire pressure light. If you run into any problems or have concerns about your tires, schedule an appointment with our Service Center in Salem.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Whenever you add air to your tires, your tire pressure light should go off on its own. If it remains on, follow these steps to help you get safely back on the road in and around Methuen: 

  • Drive at or above 50 mph for at least 10 minutes. This will usually reset the sensor, which you will notice the next time you turn on the car.
  • Turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the car. 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 owner’s manual.
  • Inflate the tires to three PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Be sure to do this with the spare tire as well, since it may also be fitted with a sensor. Once all tires are deflated, reinflating them to the recommended tire pressure will reset the TPMS system.
  • With the vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This will discharge any power still stored in the vehicle. The TPMS system will reset when you reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

If your TPMS light is on and flashing, it could be that the sensor battery is failing or that there is another issue with the tire pressure sensors. What does a flashing tire pressure light mean? It means that you should bring your vehicle into our Service Center as soon as possible. Our certified technicians can quickly diagnose exactly what the problem is and correct it. Your safety on Haverhill-area roads is our top priority.
