To do this, you need to be as calm as possible. It doesn’t help to panic. Parking your car once you get a pressure light indication will keep you safe and keep other drivers safe.
After putting your car in park, you locate the information button on the steering wheel of your car. It is a small button with an “i” icon written on it. It is also called the “Windows Button.”
Once you click it, you will notice the screen on your dashboard, indicating the pressure light will shuffle to show different icons. Continue clicking on the button until it arrives at the settings, indicated by a bolt icon on the screen.
Once the bolt button is revealed on the screen, click the enter button, located right in the middle of the other buttons to step into settings.
Once you step into the settings, you click on the enter button again to reveal the options available in the settings.
Inside the settings, the TPMS calibration will be revealed on the screen. The TPMS calibration is an acronym for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and it is responsible for warning you, using the pressure light indicator, whenever the air pressure in your tire is lower than required.
Scroll to the TPMS calibration option, and click enter once more. This will reveal a “Calibrate” option, asking you to calibrate the tire pressure. Once you click enter, your dashboard will inform you that the calibration has started.
After calibration, automatically, your pressure light turns off, telling you that everything is back to normal, you have been able to reset the tire pressure of your Honda Civic 2021.
Why is the Tire Pressure Light Showing on my Honda Civic 2021?
The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) in your Honda Civic 2021 was installed into the car to help spot whenever there is a flat tire or tires, or whenever the air in your tires are not up to the required amount to guarantee a safe journey, which could be as a result of a tiny nail puncture on your tire that is causing continual air leakage, reducing the air pressure in your tires.
This system will alert you whenever low tire pressure is detected, using a green light on your dashboard, and it is your responsibility to stop the car as soon as you can to inspect which tire has the issue.
If after inspecting, you notice that none of your tires have deflated, and it was a false alarm, or you have just pumped your tires, but the tire pressure light is still showing on your dashboard, then you should reset the TPMS using the steps explained previously.
What to Do When the Pressure Light Shows on My Honda Civic 2021
The first thing you need to do if you are on the road and notice the light is to stop driving. It is very unsafe to drive with your tire pressure monitor indicating while you drive. It means you are driving on bad tires or tires that have air pressure lesser than the required amount.
Quickly find the nearest place to park your car and reset the TPMS using the button on the steering wheel. Clicking on the information button will take you to the ‘settings’ icon, and then when you click on the settings icon, locate the TMPS calibration and calibrate.
It is very important to note that there is no need to panic, as panicking doesn’t help.
