Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

I bought two rims with TPMS capability and put winter tires on them for my 2007 Honda Civic. I can not clear the TPMS light. I would think I would have to tell the TPMS that I have new/different rims on the vehicle. How do I do this?

The new sensor I.D.'s will need to be programmed into the TPMS system. You could spend a couple of thousand dollars to get the tools to do this or call around some local shop or the dealer to see what the get for this. Then next summer you get to reprogram them again.

The other option is to pull 2 TPMS sensors out of your summer tires and install them into your winter wheels. Use a TPMS service kit to seal them up. You won't need to reprogram anything if you go this route.

The third option is not to worry about it. The old fashioned way of doing things was to check your tires every couple weeks for proper inflation. If you are in tune with the way your vehicle handles than you should be able to notice the change in the handling characteristics as a tire goes low. After all we survived for 100 years without TPMS.

Why is the tpms on


I'm sorry to say this to you but you can not fix a TPMS light by yourself, a shop will have to do it for you. The TPMS system measure your psi in your tires.
reason why it come on and fix:
-One or more of the four sensor in the tires goes bad. Sensor will have to be replace and an ID learn will have to be done to the car,
-Ran your car with low psi in tires(one or more tires) too long.(28psi min). Light will have to be clear use a scan tool.

good luck

Factoy tire size


The factory size is P185/65R14.
I have a Honda Civic and i cold Wisconsin winter use a set of Blizzak winter tires P185/65R14 on steel rims.
If ambient temperature warms up above 45F degree, I use a set of tires P205/45R16 Falken Ziex Ze-912, mounted on 16 inches aluminum rims.
Using all season tires is a good compromise too.

Is tpms sensor needed when replacing tires?


Without the sensors, the lights will continue to warn you your pressure is low. No harm will come from this to your vehicle. It is a safety system to warn you about the tire pressure so you will take immediate action. The manufacturer is ramping up to meet requirements for future safety regulations.

We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
