How to Properly Inflate Your Honda Accord 2014 Tires

Suggestions for tire pressure depend on factors like vehicle, equipment and season.
Please refer to your Honda Accord 2014 owner’s manual or the tire placard on the
driver side door jamb for optimal tire pressure levels.

Tires Pressure

Maintaining optimal tire pressure reduces the risk of blowouts and increases fuel
efficiency. You can check tire pressure by using either a standard gauge or the
information found in your owner’s manual; if your tire pressure light illuminates, add
air until its level matches that recommended by the manufacturer.

Your vehicle contains tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) sensors in each wheel
that will illuminate your dashboard when tire pressure drops below recommended
levels. After driving for several miles, these lights should go off on their own;
otherwise you have a problem with the sensors which must be reset. Since TPMS
batteries degrade over time it’s advisable to check tire pressure at least once each
month (suggested pressure will be recorded either as psi or bar); front/rear
differences will vary if your vehicle features staggered tires; information can be
found either within an owner’s manual or bulletin found attached to driver’s door
jambs.

TPMS

TPMS systems have become standard on vehicles manufactured since 2014 model
year tires. This system displays an indicator light or warning messages to indicate
when your tire air pressure has dropped below unsafe levels, helping reduce serious
accidents due to underinflated tires while providing you with information if one or
more tires is low without needing to get out, crouch down, and use a tire gauge.

Most tire pressure monitoring sensors (TPMSs), also known as direct tire pressure
monitoring sensors (dTPMS) or indirect TPMS, work by placing one sensor per wheel
to transmit information about tire pressure back to the vehicle computer. When one
or more of your tires are significantly underinflated and light up with an “L”, that
indicates repairs or reinflation is needed immediately. Be sure to follow your vehicle
owner’s manual or tire & loading sticker specifications so you don’t over inflate or
deflate tires by accident!

Tire pressure must be checked regularly with a tire gauge to maintain optimal air
levels for longer tire lifespan and fuel efficiency. This will extend their useful life.
Your vehicle manufacturer determines the optimal tire pressure based on your
vehicle’s specific characteristics and tire sizes, recording this recommendation either
in PSI, bar pressure or kPa (kilopascals).

Your tires should always be at their recommended levels to increase tire life and
enhance driving experiences, reduce blowout risks and boost safety and handling. If
they are improperly inflated, TPMS systems will illuminate a warning light; check
pressure regularly and add or subtract air as necessary.

Tire Calibration

Your Honda Accord’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System, commonly referred to as
TPMS, needs to be calibrated every time you adjust tire pressure or replace tires,
whether by rotating, rotating and replacing or by any other means. Although the
process can be simple and quick, for optimal results it should be performed by
someone familiar with this complex system such as an automotive mechanic.
Maintaining optimal tire inflation levels is critical to getting maximum life from your
tires, and to do this effectively you need a tire gauge to measure their pressure. To
do this, check both the placard of each tire as well as its owner’s manual for
guidance on their recommended PSI level.

Your Tire Pressure Monitoring System, or TPMS sensor, monitors air pressure for
each tire on your car. When the sensor detects that pressure has dropped below an
acceptable level, a warning indicator lights up on the instrument panel. If this
warning light flashes regularly and symptoms continue, visit a dealer to seek
assistance and have the sensors reset; additionally they may provide you with a list
of certified technicians near your location.
