Default 2010 CR-V tpms warning on dash

Anyone have success fixing this problematic sensor without going to
the dealer? I read on some forum last nite how some had to go to the
dealer multiple times to fix, change rims, etc... to eliminate the
warning on the dash. Lately our weather is colder so I realize that
may have triggered my warning on the dash but tires look okay. I
don't know what the original pressure was nor what it is now. I may
just ignor the warning on the dash since I'm confident about the tires
but if I could do some quick fix, I'd be willing to give it a try.

please ensure you actually distinguish between low pressure warning and tpms
warning icons.

I suspect you are confusing low pressure with tpms.

Nick, sounds like I must be. I didn't know there is a difference so I
need to read the MANUAL again. Haven't read it since I got the CR-V
so my ignorance must be showing. I'll read it in a couple hours after
I bring my wife shopping... she's the boss .

If it helps any... my icon on the dash is a tire wall (sideways "C")
with an exclamation mark inside it. Sorry for my ignorance.

Specifically which light is on?

The one with a picture of a slice of tire, and an exclamation mark?

Or the one with the letters "TPMS" on it?

My ignorance.... I checked the manual (pg 66) and it is the " low tire
pressure indicator ". Anyone know how sensitive this sensor is
supposed to be in pounds??

Sheesh...it's telling you that one or more of your tires is low. Get a
pressure gauge and check them and put some air in them. They can look OK
but still be too low. I believe the light comes on at about 25 psi. You
should probably have about 32 psi in them (check the sticker on the
driver side door jamb). You might even have a nail in one of them.

Righto! I own a 2011 Fit, bought in March this year. Recently my low
pressure warning light came on. Tire pressure in ALL FOUR tires was
within +/_ 1 pound of 26 pounds, 6 pounds low. Spare measured 45 pounds,
15 pounds too low. Cheeze, don't they check that when a new car comes
in? I'll be calling the dealer this coming week. How can I ever have
any confidence in that dealer in the future??

So what you're saying is that you bought the car in March and:

a) assumed all of your five tires were properly inflated

b) have NEVER checked them since, assuming that once properly inflated
they will stay that way regardless

Any confidence issues should be with yourself.

I gotta side with Elmo on this one. Both of you (Dan & Doug)need to
step back and consider what's the REAL question and respond accordingly.

Doug made no mention at all of the very first thing that I would do if
the light came on and that's to grab a tire gauge and check the pressure
of all my tires. If they're low, I inflate them to where they're
supposed to be, take the car out and put 4-5 miles on it and see what
happens with the sensor light. If it goes out, I've "repaired" the
problem (otherwise known as simple, routine maintenance)

Dan apparently hasn't checked his tires since he bought the car and now
that the TPMS is lighting up, he's concerned that the dealer may not
have done his thing. Hello? SIMPLE, ROUTINE MAINTENANCE. Check the
freakin' tires every so often. Yes, they may have been underinflated
when you took delivery, then again maybe not. Little Eddie next door
could be messing with you, maybe the pressure was intentionally set low
to "enhance your ride" and now that cold weather is upon us... well,
save the physics lecture for another time.

Threads like this seem to drive home just WHY they are called "idiot
lights."

Best to invest in a decent tire gauge and one of those electric tire pumps.
Check your pressure (typically around 30-32) monthly.
