Tire Pressure For Honda Accord 2013

Maintaining proper tire pressure for multiple reasons, including efficiency,
responsiveness and traction. Consult the owner’s manual of your Accord for advice
on correct tires pressure settings; and regularly use a tire pressure gauge to check
them.
Underinflated tires decrease gas mileage, are harder to steer and wear out faster –
potentially even leading to tire failure if driven with low tire pressure.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) monitors tire air pressure. If it detects
that it has dropped 25% below your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended coldinflation pressure, it will alert the multi-information display and remain illuminated
until calibration has taken place.

Honda TPMS systems use sensors in each wheel to monitor tire air pressure. When
one or more tires in your Honda Accord are low on air pressure, a warning icon will
appear on its dashboard instrument panel resembling a cross section of tire with an
exclamation point symbol.,

When your TPMS light illuminates, pull over at an appropriate time and check tire
pressure as soon as safely possible. Inflate them according to manufacturer
specifications until your TPMS light goes away – or, if not, follow instructions in your
owner’s manual on how to reset your system.

Tire Pressure Gauge

Your Honda Accord may feature a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that
warns when tires are underinflated. To make things simpler, we suggest using a tire
pressure gauge instead. Your recommended pressure levels can be found either on a
sticker in the driver’s door jamb or within your owner’s manual.

Proper tire inflation can help improve fuel economy, safety and handling; on the
other hand, underinflation can result in uneven and rapid tire wear, poor handling
and braking capabilities, increased traction and potentially damaging effects to the
tire itself. Therefore, to maintain optimal performance, safety and gas mileage you
should regularly inspect and check tire pressure in your 2013 Honda Accord – it
should remain optimally inflated!

Tire Pressure Indicator Light

Honda TPMS utilizes individual pressure sensors in each tire (including the spare).
When an air pressure drop below a preset threshold is detected by any sensor, a
warning light on your dashboard illuminates. Underinflated tires consume more gas,
wear out faster and cause poor handling dynamics; to prevent these problems from
occurring regularly checking tire pressure with a tire gauge to set proper PSI
settings before driving is recommended.

If the light still illuminates after following the guidelines in your owner’s manual and
you fill your tires to their recommended pressure, the problem could be due to a
defective TPMS sensor that needs replacing and registering again with the system
controller.
To reset your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), first turn off your vehicle.
Locate and press/hold the TPMS button located to the left of the steering wheel until
the light on your dashboard begins flashing twice.

Tire Pressure Reset

As soon as your TPMS light goes on, the first thing you should do is use a pressure
gauge to check all tires (remove valve stem caps first!). Be sure to do this when all
tires are cold before driving – and compare their pressure to what is recommended
by stickers in driver doors, owners manuals or sometimes on tire sidewalls.
Once your tires have been checked, the next step in calibrating your TPMS should be
calibration. This will disable your low tire pressure warning indicator on the
instrument panel; simply follow the instructions in your Honda owner’s manual for
this process which usually lasts approximately 30 minutes at speeds between 30-
65mph.
