    Angry Frequent Low Tire Pressure Indicator

    My Crv is only 4 months old and its the third time that I got low tire pressure indicator. Is it common with Crv's tires to loose air soon ? What's the best tire pressure to inflate the tires with ?

    Often the vehicles are delivered with just barely the right pressure needed, if you have had cold weather your tire pressure can drop a few pounds and send off the idiot light. A good rule of thumb is to set the pressure for 32psi all around and then check once a month or so especially during the colder months.

    It would also help us give you better information if you could update your location and also your model/year CRV as things differ in other parts of the world and "most" of our posts come from the USA.

    If your tire pressure keeps getting low, you might want
    to check for any leak on the valve stem or any small nail
    embedded on the tire thread.

    Good point ROMAN, when I had my OEM's I picked up a finishing nail that was making the tire lose about 3# every week; I had the tire off and could not find it but it was in between one of the "sipes" on the tire and buried so that you could not see it. Forgot about those...

    Low tire

    Hi - I had the low tire pressure light go on and off when it first turned cool here on Long Island. I brought my car in for an oil change at 11,000 miles and they told me the tire pressure indicators were faulty and they replaced them all.

    That may be your problem as well.

    what i would do is remove each wheel, lay them flat on the floor.
    grab some soapy water and pour little amount around the valve and on the valve opening itself and the edge where the tire/rim meets (both sides).
    this way... u can see if you have any air leaking from the valve or perhaps the seal between rim and tire is no good. if no leaks and you dont see any nails, then that narrows down your problem to the sensors or the computer.

    a lot of work but at least you can rule out leaking air theory.

    Hi, I just posted a question about this the other day. My light came on on my way to work, but I didn't know what it was, so I got all upset, since mine is 4 months old as well. I looked up what it was and found out it was the low tire pressure warning. I live in Pennsylvania and it just got colder here lately. Hopefully that was the reason it was on. I haven't seen it come on since, and my tires don't appear to be low. That is probably the case for you as well.

    Yes, usually it comes when waether becomes cold and tire losses some pressure.
    Best is to have 31-32 psi in all 4 tires.
