The tire pressure icon (cross section of tire with an exclamation point in it) came on yesterday in our 2010 Crosstour purchased in August 2010. I checked the tire pressure in all four tires and brought the two front tire back up to 32 psi (cold pressure) - but the light is still on. Any suggestions from the forum?

They work on radio frequencies... it's possible that outside interference can cause an erroneous reading.

It is also possible that there is a faulty one in the mix somewhere.

hmmm. It also got colder yesterday here in Milwaukee and I'm wondering if this is just a temperature problem tha twill go away once the tires have warmed up. (Pain in the neck if I have to go to Honda dealer to get thewarning light shut off.) The Accord forum has stories from Accord owners who have had the light go out after driving for a bit - but, dammit, I put the tires back up to 32 psi cold pressure and the light still stayed on.

If the sensors are working correctly, you don't need to go to the dealer to have the light reset.

After the tires return to the correct pressure, the light should go out on it's own.

I just came in from the garage and was going to start this thread. My wife came home from the airport tonight with the TPMS light on. I checked the tires and they were all at 28. I pumped them up to 32, took it for a 2 mile ride and the light went out.

Ok, cold here in Atlanta. Last week I checked the CT and they wereat 30 lbs all around. (Also, they are nitrogen filled, came that way, and I sure as heck didn't pay for it. Tonight, all four were at 28, lost 2 lbs. all around. I checked my Ridgeline tonight also, they were at 32 and now at 30. So the nitrogen tires in the CT lost 2 lbs in the cold weather, and the Ridgeline with palin ol' air also lost 2 lbs. So much for nitrogen not being affected by cold temperatures.

My big question, the Ridgeline does not kick off and display the warning light until a tire is about 8 lbs low. The CT appears to be lighting up when it is 4 lbs low. Anyone know when they should light up? Seems a bit sensitive to me.

Christopher, did you pump up the rear tires also? I'll bet that they are all low. Worth a shot to pump a few pounds in the back too.

more on tire pressure sensors

Just to close the loop - after having only checked my front tires (since they were the ones that "looked" slightly low when the light came on(, I did go ahead and check the pressure on the rear tires two days later (the light still being on) and they were slightly low, so I brought them to 32 psi cold too. Sure enough, the tire pressure warning icon then finally went out (after just a little driving). I now believe the sensors will indeed shut the light off (with no assistance from a dealer) once all tires have been brought back to required pressure. Believe in your Honda, right?

Glad you got it worked out, and it was something simple.

So much for technology making life easier lol. I remember when a tire pressure monitor was when you went to the full service side of the gas station and that guy checked it all for you lol
