    Tpms sensors

    From what I’ve read, all 9gen si are supposed to have tire pressure sensors... my IMID screen doesn’t have the option to recalibrate after rotating them... do they all have TPMS or was it an option? I have a 14 si sedan

    Looks like you are in Canada? Don't think the Canadian cars have tpms. If you do it's the indirect system working off the abs, no direct sensor on the wheel for 14-15

    I know on 14-15 you should have 2 options:
    Menu>Maintenance> Tire Rotation
    Menu> Customization> TPMS recalibration

    If you are in the U.S. and not Canada, the car must be at a complete standstill for the TPMS Calibration option (or whatever is up-menu from it) to even show up.

    No 14-15 si has sensors as the valve stems. Either reset through the dashboard options or drive for a few minutes above 25mph after pressure is corrected to reset TPMS system. These have indirect TPMS that goes off the wheel speed sensors for the ABS.

    I cannot speak as to whether Canada market cars have TPMS or not, as I do not have access to their service data.
    But, to back up dpetro1's statement; here is the overview for '14/'15 USA spec Civic.

    Since were on the subject of TPMS I thought I would share my experience with changing sensor calibration going from one set of wheels to another set of wheels for those of you who may want to change for the new season.
    I drive a 2012 Civic Si. This year I decided to upgrade my winter wheels for next season from steel to aluminum downsized for the ultimate snow traction with Blizzak LM001 sport tires. I also decided to add the TPMS sensors only because I got tired of looking at the ! warning light on the dash and constantly pushing the IMID menu button to clear the screen every time I started the car. Honda Service wanted to charge me $100+ to recalibrate the sensors from one season to the next so that would be $200+ every year to go from 18" summer tires to 16" winter tires, then back again that's crazy. You would think the car's computer memory would remember each set of wheels but no. This calibration has to be entered through the OBD Port. Fortunately my tire guy makes this change for me every season for nothing. I will note when the tire shop changes the wheels over the air must be released from the tires completely they use a tool on the valve stem so you don't have to sit at each tire pushing the valve stem in. After the calibration is uploaded the tires are inflated to spec. Next you will need to start & drive the car, I was told to drive above 50 mph it only takes a few miles the TPMS ! blinks on and off. When the calibration takes, the warning ! disappears. Now your all set for the new season. Tpms sensors-dsc05173.jpg
