Has anyone had any issues with the tire pressure warning light on their civic? I have the Hatchback Sport with only about 2500 miles on it and for the 3rd time this week the warning light came on. First time I went to the dealer the psi was at 50, which is way too high, should be at 35 and they tried to say someone must have inflated it other than me which is absurd, second time went back and they were all fine and it just popped up again today on my way to NYC. Hopefully I'm not alone with this!

I read the manufacturer over inflates them for shipping purposes.Try to recalibrate the TPMS and go from there.The dealership should know this detail IMO.

The employee at the dealer said he did a complete reset on the system and it should recognize the new(normal) tire pressure as the right one but just a day or two after the light is back on

if they said they recalibrated it...and the tires are the same pressure...something is wrong and warranty should cover it.

Same happened to me other than I have much fewer miles. Begin re-calibration and then had to drive for 30 mins or so for it to establish it's baseline. Once that is done, it should be good to go.

What he said, working so far after 100+ miles.
