Have you checked your tire pressure?
I had to take my Touring in to the dealership and have them reset it. :(

First off, Thanks for the replies and interesting info! I will take a look at the manual and hopefully I won't have to make a trip to the dealer as a result.

I caught a nail at only 50 miles into my new car and the tire company told me they couldn't reset it!

My TMPS light came on after I got 4 new tires installed, the tire company did not know how to make it shut off, I didn't either. I'm not sure what the dealership did to make it go off, but they said it happens when you get new tires put on. ~shrug~

I guess you could say both!! LOL

The tire was unrepairable because it was too close to the side wall.

In both of your cases, your's was probably the first '16 Civic they'd seen. So, since it wasn't immediately obvious to them how to reset it, they plead ignorance. Many other cars have dedicated buttons. Honda has moved it completely into software, via the infotainment UI. Saves the cost of the button.

Done!! Thanks for the reference in the manual, although i had to go about it slightly different from the manual. I wasn't able to access the setting menu from the steering wheel, instead from the main screen and I had to put the car in park versus neutral but, it was as easy as selecting Setting, Vehicle and then TPM Recal. THANKS AGAIN!!

No, there aren't. It's sensor-less. Uses info from the ABS sensors. That's why there is the whole calibrate/reset bit.

I'm assuming the tpm isn't in the valve stem...???
Wanted to swap my 16 civic LX wheels with my 05 accord ex 17's. They may look better on my civic. Both are 5 lug, anyone know if they will fit or if this will set off the tpm??
Thanks

Any idea about fit ment? Civic should be at dealer by end of month. Civic has 16's. The accord has 17's. I'm worried about clearance and bolt pattern..

Fitment should be fine. Shouldnt have any issues. Same bolt pattern. My Ex-L came stock with 17's now have 18's. No issues

That's cool .. then I can swap my TL wheels with no warnings , same with winter steelies .
please keep us posted on how that looks, i've always been a fan of how wheels from other cars from the same manufacture look, especially when its a set of wheels that are quite attainable (unless you're talking about some aftermarket set that you used on your TL?

OM p 539 says:

6. Put the flat tip of the jack handle bar into
the edge of the wheel cover. Carefully pry
the edge and remove the cover.
> Wrap a cloth around the flat tip of the
jack handle bar to prevent scratches on
the cover.
