    I believe in the US it's 30/33 psi and just a good gauge!

    Please do not forget to recalibrate.

    Best to you!

I don't know why.
    Unless your dealer took all the air out of the tires and pumped new air in, they should overinflate the tires a little bit to compensate for the warm/hot air alredy inside the tires. Common sense.

    Does anyone know why Honda dealers, seems to be all dealers around the U.S., inflate the tire pressure to over 40psi when the manual clearly indicates 33/30 as well as the door's sticker?
    It gotta be a reason for that.

    I think they come from the factory that way, to try to void flat spotting while in transit. The dealer is supposed to lower the pressures to the recommended level during their pre-delivery inspection (PDI) but it seems many dealers do not...and this is not unique to Hondas either.

    Related, but off topic, when ever I take my vehicles into the dealer for service, (any brand!) they ALWAYS turn off the auto headlight setting, then leave it that way. I usually find out the first time i drive at night, and realize I don't have my headlights on. This is potentially a safety issue. The porter, or whoever brings the car up when you pick it up, should assure it is back in 'Auto" position before delivering the car back to the owner. I've now kinda trained myself to look at this whenever I get back my car before driving away. Rant off..

    Never use Auto lights. Many times they don't come on when needed during daytime rain. Wipers on? Headlights on. The law in some southern states I think because of common summer T-Storms.

    As you already know your CR-V does not have direct reading sensors in the wheels, so it cannot tell the actual air pressure. 25, 32 or 48 psi => the computer has no idea what's really in there. But what it does know is that the vehicle is not 'acting' like it should, so something is wrong.

    The original 'first generation' indirect system only used wheel speed sensors to see which wheel might be spinning faster than the others. But if they are ALL over or underinflated, they will all rotate at the same rate and the system will be fooled into thinking all is good (even if it isn't...).

    The 'second generation' indirect system uses key elements of the Stability Control system plus a lot of processing power to monitor how the vehicle reacts to turns, road pitch, acceleration, braking, wobble & shimmy, yaw & steering angle, etc. If the vehicle tracks as it should (as determined by Honda pre-programmed parameters supplemented by a successful Calibration procedure), then it assumes the tires are properly filled.

    You can of course mess with that by doing the Calibration procedure under the wrong conditions, but lets assume that you adjusted air pressure correctly, are running 4 similar tires, etc.

    There is a setting which automatically turns on lights when wipers are on

    Haven't found that one. In Canada only? Your daytime running light law certainly has been around for many years.

    could be canadian feature

    but when headlights are in auto and if auto wipers are triggered due to rain, snow etc- full headlights comes on

    It is under vehicle settings
    vehicle- lighting setup - auto headlight on with wiper on- On/Off
