Hmm I didn't know TPMS was integrated with VSA. Doesn't VSA just control torque and brakes?

Hmm, that's nice to know. So if the TPMS sensor goes off then the VSA switch does nada. Now I'm curious, sorry I can't help much. My '00 Si doesn't have VSA let alone ABS >_<

Haha no need to explain man we know your situation. When you come you should test drive a new Si anyway just to see, who knows, you could end up liking it :D

I definitely will try it out...and I'll tell you right now, my idea about leaving the Civic may be a dumb idea. I was just looking at the gas prices continue to soar...perhaps I'll stick with the civic afterall, lol. I'll give the 2012 a try, but I have a feeling the FA5 my still be my favorite. Don't worry, I won't ever bash the 2012's...I still like them a tad, just have a few issues with some of the decisions honda made for them.

How's gas in japan right now? I know Europe is suffering pretty bad, and us of course.

Hmm I guess that's sorta hard to gauge, but gas is 4.50 over here now, Costco gas is only 3-something but the lines are ridiculous day and night lol

Low Tire Pressure warning

My low tire pressure warning came on. All 4 tires measure 30psi (2 gauges, same reading)

1) Is this the normal level to trip the TPMS indicator?

2) Any easy way to see which sensor is indicating a problem other then adding a few pounds to each tire one at a time?
Thanks

I was told by my dealer the tpms system will go off with a 20% decrease in pressure. I had mine go off this weekend when the weather changed drastically. aired it up. the system took a bit to shut off so after airing it up i drove it a bit and it shut off.

I hate the TPMS. My Nissan Titan had an annoying problem with the light coming on constantly. Now my wife's Rogue is doing it too. Nothing seems to help. I hate the fact that my new Civic has the system. I wish they would just do away with it. I ended up putting electrical tape over the little light with the Titan, hope I don't have to do the same with the Civic!!!!! NOTE TO CAR MAKERS...GET RID OF IT

^ FMVSS 138... I think. It's not going away, it's now a mandatory law (in the US) that requires every car made in and after 2008 will have to have TPMS installed. It is a hassle, it makes changing tires a bit more of a hassle at times.

TSX displays the actual pressure for each tire so it doesn't suck as much. I brought all of the tires up to 32 from the original 30 and after about 30 miles the light cleared and has stayed off. I have a feeling this will be a problem in the winter.
