How to Check Tire Pressure for 2016 Honda Accord

Some Accord owners overinflate their tires, which is both unsafe and can lead to
permanent damage of both tires and suspension components.
Your door placard and owner’s manual contain the recommended tires pressure
recommendations based on vehicle weight and tire size, so be sure to always check
it when your tires are cold.

How to Check Tire Pressure

For an accurate reading, remove one valve stem cap from one of your tires and
press the head of a tires pressure gauge firmly against its valve stem. Adjust until no
hissing sound of air escaping is heard before reading off your pressure on the gauge repeat for all four tires.
Proper tire pressure helps ensure even wear on all of your tires and improve
handling, fuel economy and tread life – so it is crucial that you regularly check it with
a tire pressure gauge.
Your 2016 Honda Accord’s suggested tire pressure can be found in its owner’s
manual or on its sticker inside the driver side door. If you need help finding out the
appropriate pressure for your vehicle, feel free to reach out our service technicians
at our Countryside, Illinois dealership – they’d be more than happy to assist in
setting it properly!

How to Reset the Tire Pressure Light

Every new Honda Accord comes equipped with tire pressure monitoring systems
(TPMS). These alerts are designed to increase driving safety by alerting you if air
pressure levels have dropped in your tires – something many drivers don’t notice
until it is too late! This feature is especially important as many drivers don’t realize
when their air pressure has dropped and their driving may become unsafe.
Once you’ve checked and filled up your tires with air, most times the TPMS light will
go out automatically. But if it remains illuminated after checking pressure with a
gauge and refilling them up again, reset the system before trying again.
Performing this process will recalibrate your sensors so they are working again,
depending on your vehicle and how your sensors are powered (some use batteries
while others rely on anti-lock brake systems). To start this calibration process, push
or select the TPMS button or option in the MID or center display and drive for 30
minutes at speeds between 30-65 mph until your system resets itself.

How to Change the Tire Pressure

Your tires need to be properly inflated for an enjoyable and safe driving experience
in Yorba Linda streets. Honda TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) will monitor
air pressure in your tires and alert you if any are low, providing a comfortable ride
and keeping Yorba Linda streets safer.
Your recommended tire pressure can be found in either your owner’s manual or on a
sticker on the driver’s door jamb. In addition, check the initialization screen or
settings menu (please consult your owner’s manual for details) of TPMS system or
vehicle settings menu to find it as well.
When your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) warning light illuminates, stop
driving immediately and adjust tire pressure as soon as possible. After doing this,
your TPMS indicator should reset; if not, recalibrating may be required; typically this
requires driving at speeds between 30-65 mph for approximately 30 minutes to recalibrate automatically. For assistance changing tire pressure contact Weir Canyon

How to Check Your Tire Pressure

Honda Accord owners can easily check their tire pressure using an inexpensive tire
pressure gauge. Ideally, this should be performed when your tires have been cold for
an extended period. Simply remove the valve stem cap and place the tip of your
gauge onto it – this will display its readings on screen!
If your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light illuminates, this indicates that
one or more tires have low air pressure. Should this occur, contact the tire shop that
originally mounted your tires to have them reinflated as soon as possible.
Maintaining proper tire pressure should be done on a regular basis, especially prior
to and after significant seasonal temperature fluctuations. Recalibration should also
be performed regularly by certified technicians as this will reset the TPMS sensor and
keep its warning light from flashing.
