The TPMS light lit up out of the blue on my 2015 EX. I have not touched the tires in a while and it has never come on before. I checked the tire pressure and all tires were low so I inflated them to 34 PSI and re-calibrated the system. The next day after about 30 mins of driving, the light came back on again. This time I again re-calibrated it while at a stop light and within two minutes, the light came back on again. Any ideas on what the issue could be?

Check your tires again. Are they all still full? You might have a small leak in one of the tire.
Good call. That was my thought as well but I was being lazy. Turns out the right rear has a nail in it and the pressure is low. Guess I'll be making a stop at the gas station repair shop tomorrow. Thanks for the reply!

While not a big fan of this Second Generation Indirect TPMS system (2014 and up CRV do not have direct reading transmitting sensors in the tires), it's great to hear that the system actually worked! It saved you from doing permanent damage to that tire, possible rim damage and maybe even worse if it lost pressure while on the highway.

Hi, I have 2008 Honda CRV.
A month ago, my TPMS light was on, and then I went to F*******E to reset it.
Two weeks later, the light was on (again) after driving 15 miles from home. Therefore, I went to F*******E to reset it (again).
Same story, the light was on (again) after driving 15 miles from home. Therefore, I went to F*******E to reset it (again).
Another story, the light was on (again) after driving 15 miles from home. Therefore, this morning, I went to F*******E (again) to reset it.
But this time they said that the right rear sensor was bad and needed to replace. After replaced it, no luck, TPMS light still on. They believe the car’s computer not yet recognized the new sensor. Since they do not have the tools, they told me to go to Honda Dealership to reset it.
Can somebody help me to solve this problem?

2008 crv uses tpms senosrs inside the tires. They need to be registered to the crv computer. If your shop can't do it, then bring it to the dealer. I hope they wrote down the serial number for the new sensor otherwise the dealer will need to remove the tire again to get the code.
However, being a 2008 the batteries are likely all going bad by now if they are all original tpms. FYI: You dont need to reset tpms if they are working and registered. Once tire pressure is corrected the tpms light will go out itself. Also posted on the wrong forum.

Thank you for your reply. I'll try

I recently bought a 2014 CRV. The first time I took it on a 100 mile HW trip, it lit up the TPMS light.
I read about it in the manual and it said that the system needs a calibration if that happens as the tire pressure did not drop at any time.
Soon after the re-calibration the light is on again.
There is a TSB for this issue where the system has to be flashed by the dealer if it throws VSA DTC 151-11. I have not scanned mine yet, so not making an appointment for this until I pull the codes once the ordered scanner shows up.

I had a problem earlier in the year where my low tire pressure light would flicker every once in a while or sometimes just stay on like the OP reported. I had Firestone rotate my tires and be on the look out for a screw or something in the front right tire; they reported nothing. I already had a hunch what my problem was because a while back i had hit a curb with that exact wheel about a week earlier. Ordered a new ABS sensor from Majestic, installed it and my problem went away.

It's referred to as indirect tpms, more and more manufactures are switching to it because...well...it's cheap. It has it's advantages and disadvantages.

Then it is NOT tpms. That is oh, so fucked!
Yes, it is.. it's just a different method to predict. Note: TPMS = tire pressure monitoring system, NOT Tire Pressure Readout System. The intent is to alert the driver to a low tire, and hence stop and deal with it and avoid a complete tire loss from driving on an empty tire. It is not intended to replace routine tire pressure checks by the owner.

The disadvantage is it is not as sensitive as a system that uses active sensors in the valve stem assembly. (Generally does not trigger until you are down 7-10 lbs)

The advantages is you never have to have the valve stem assembly sensors serviced, and there are fewer things that can fail and cause issues with TPMS. And the owner can easily do an built in re-calibration whenever tires are rotated, or periodically re-inflated to spec.

The advantage for auto manufacturers (more of them are moving to indirect systems, as Traylaw noted) is since they already have all the high tech ABS systems in place.. it represents a less expensive approach to TPMS.
