TPMS LIGHT

Post by FAT MAN 65 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:44 pm



Hey All! Today I had new tires put on. Yea! I left the shop and about 6 or 7 miles down the road I noticed the TPMS light on. I stopped turned the engine off,cranked up and no change. Drove back to the shop. They checked the air. Ok. I drove home,about 40 miles. Still on. My question is, is there a way to turn it off? Thanks all.

There is a good possibility that the shop that put your tires on broke one of the sensors. Otherwise, it should have continued to work. I run my tires at 40 rear and 42 front to get better wear from the tires, but the recommended pressures should be inside your gas door. If the shop broke a sensor (or two) they are pricey.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

Since it worked before the tire change, good possibility one of the sensors was damaged. Easy to do! Honda has a written procedure for replacing the tire. It shows the position of the wheel when breaking the bead and then dis-mounting and remounting the tire.
Ask the dealer if they would re-register the sensors. That will show if one of the sensors is bad.

Well I did about a 110 mile ride this afternoon. The light is still on. WOW, those sensors are about 150.00 each. Are the shops not responsible for this? I don't know. I may call BILL and ask him. I HATE to be agravating about this.Thanks for any replies.

When I had my rear tire on my 2012 replaced, the mechanic broke the sensor. Got about half way home and the light still hadn't gone out. Returned to the dealer and they replaced it NO CHARGE. If it was damaged during tire replacement the shop should be responsible.

The light would not come on just because of a tire change, the sensor does not know that happened.

Thanks Dave0430, I think you're right. I'M thinking about getting a reset TOOL and doing it myself.

My point was they probably don't need & or won't reset, probably broken. I have changed tires several times and never had to reset the sensors.

Did you ever contact the shop to see what they say about replacement? If they have the reset tool, they should be able to see if the sensor is recognized without even doing a reset.

I you have a good tire shop near by, call them and ask if the have the tool. I know the VTEQ tool will read the Goldwing sensors. If they have one see it it will read a Goldwing. The ATEQ vt30 and vt31 will read the sensor and report a faulty one. May cost few $ for them to do it. Better than paying the dealer for an hour when it will only take a few minutes to verify if the sensor is bad.
