How to Inflate Tires in Your 2016 Honda Accord

If your Honda Accord’s tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light has illuminated,
this indicates one or more Inflate Tires may have low air pressure. Please refer to this
article’s recommended tire pressure settings and ensure they are adequately
inflated before driving away.
Tire pressure recommendations depend on your vehicle and should be found either
in its owner’s manual or the sticker on its driver side door jamb. For accurate psi
levels, consult either of these resources.

How to Check Inflate Tires Pressure

Staying on top of tire inflation is key for both safe, comfortable driving and enhanced
fuel economy. Most vehicles feature tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMSs) which
alert the driver when tire pressure is low and should alert when inflation levels have
fallen below ideal.
Your owner’s manual or vehicle placard provides recommended tire pressure
monitoring system (TPMS) settings, with low air pressure indicators on all four tires
of TPMS system that illuminate when their air pressure decreases below a
predetermined level. In addition, when air pressure in Inflate Tires drops too low TPMS
systems provide warning light alerting of low tire air pressure conditions.
If the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) low pressure light comes on while
driving, stop in an isolated location and use a tire gauge to check tire pressure. If it
falls below recommended PSI values, use an air compressor to add air until each tire
reaches optimal PSI levels; once complete, your TPMS light should switch off
automatically when tire pressure matches manufacturer recommendations;
otherwise it may need resetting which should only be done by trained mechanics.

Tire Pressure Measurement

Tire-pressure gauges are the go-to tools for measuring tire pressure. Consisting of a
short metal tube with an open end, air from Inflate Tires enters it through its valve stem and
when compressed by pin inside the gauge against its valve stem it straightens,
prompting mechanical linkage to move the needle on the dial of the gauge, thus
providing a measurement in either pounds per square inch (psi) in imperial and US
customary systems or bar (deprecated for SI, now defined as kilopascal) in countries
that follow it.
Tire pressure checks should be performed after leaving your car parked for some
time, since tire pressure will fluctuate with temperature changes throughout the day.
Recommended pressure levels will typically be shown on your door jamb label based
on its gross vehicle weight rating.

Tire Inflation

Temperature fluctuations affect tire pressure in your Accord, potentially altering tire
pressure over time. If the TPMS light illuminates in winter or early spring, this
indicates that tire air pressure has dropped due to decreased temperatures – this is
normal and doesn’t indicate that your tires have any leaks or punctures.
If your Inflate Tires have low air pressure, it is crucial that they receive the proper amount
of air before driving your Accord. Doing this can prevent uneven or lopsided tire
wear and save on gas costs while keeping it running at its optimal performance. Tire
gauges are readily available from most auto parts stores or gas stations at
reasonable prices – make it part of a monthly routine to check tire pressure!

Tire Replacement

If you’re replacing your Accord tires, be sure to follow the size and type instructions
found in your owner’s manual. In addition, perform a TPMS reset if installing different
sizes; your vehicle’s pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light may come on due to
seasonal temperature changes causing tire pressure drops that affect tire pressure
If your TPMS warning light illuminates, this indicates that either the sensor battery
has failed or requires replacement. Auffenberg Dealer Group offers this service; for
the best experience please consult your Honda owner’s manual as to the best way to
carry out this task correctly.
If your tire sensor light has illuminated, the first thing you should try to do is inflate
your Inflate Tires with air. If this doesn’t solve the issue, try inflating them with nitrogen; but
don’t be misled into thinking this will magically turn off your TPMS light!
