Honda HR-V: Testing




  • Make sure the tire pressure is properly adjusted to the specified tire pressure listed on the doorjamb label before doing the TPMS calibration.
  • The calibration begins when the TPMS switch is pressed. The calibration is completed after driving in an ideal driving condition (28 to 65 mph (45 to 105 km/h), driving steadily without much acceleration or deceleration) for about 18 minutes. Full functionality of the system cannot be performed properly if the calibration is not completed.
  • Do the TPMS calibration after doing the following items.
  • Adjust the tire pressure.
  • Rotating the tires.
  • Replacing the tire(s).
  • Update the VSA modulator-control unit.
  • Replace the VSA modulator-control unit.

Calibration check method.

  • Check if calibration is completed by doing the following items.
  1. Stop the vehicle and shift into neutral (M/T) or P or N (CVT).
  2. Turn the vehicle to the OFF (LOCK) mode.
  3. Turn the vehicle to the ON mode and wait to see the low pressure indicator come on for 2 seconds and then off.
  4. Do not drive the vehicle and wait for 45 seconds as is.
  5. If the calibration is completed, the indicator does not come on. If the calibration is not yet completed, then the indicator comes on for 2 seconds and then goes off.

The calibration check process gets interrupted if the vehicle moves. Do the troubleshooting if the indicator does not go off after 2 seconds, keeps blinking or stays on when the vehicle is in the ON mode.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System - Testing & Troubleshooting

  1. Make sure the tires are inflated to the specified tire pressure listed on the doorjamb label.
  2. Turn the vehicle to the ON mode.

    NOTE: Vehicle must be stopped with the transmission in neutral (M/T) or P or N (CVT).

  3. Press the TPMS switch (A) for 3 seconds.
  4. When the calibration successfully begins, the indicator (B) blinks twice.check the TPMS switch.
