Honda Pilot: How To Reset TPMS

If the Tire Pressure Management System in the Honda Pilot is not working properly, you may have to reset the system. Follow one of the options below to re-initialize the TPMS.

The light indicator is a notification to warn you of significantly low air pressure or high-pressure loss in your tires. Low pressure affects the vehicles overall performance such as

  • How the vehicle handles.
  • Decrease in fuel mileage.
  • Tire wear or failure.

Check the Recommended Air Levels Needed

  • Refer to the Manufacturer’s Sticker located on the inside of the Driver’s door.  
  • Fill each tire to the recommended PSI/air pressure. 

Keep in mind, the outdoor temperature affects how fast the air in the tires will adjust to the proper temperature, this could take minutes to several days. Simply be patient and give the tires time to adjust. In addition, if the tire pressure warning light stays illuminated past a week, you will need to have your vehicle serviced as there could possibly be a sensor issue or a tire puncture.

NOTE: If you are unable to Reset the Tire Pressure Warning Light on the first try, REPEAT the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.

  1. It appears there is not a TPMS reset in my 2008 Honda Pilot. Would it be worthwhile to change the TPMS fuse? Am I looking in the wrong place for the TPMS reset?
