Precautions



Specific to:

Honda CR-V 2007-2008

When removing or mounting a tire with a Tire Pressure Monitor (TPM) sensor installed, stay 90° away from the sensor location. Avoid tire/tool contact with the valve on mount and dismount. Avoid lubricant contact on the sensor. Lubricate the tire bead not the rim. Excessive lubrication should not be applied.

After removing the valve nut from the TPM sensor, it should not be re-used.

Ensure that the wheel to be fitted is designed for a sensor mount. There should normally be a mark to indicate this. Make sure that the valve hole and mating face of the wheel are clean.

Do not exceed allowed torque when installing the TPM sensor to the wheel rim. Do not use electric or pneumatic tools on the TPM sensor. Handle the sensor with care.

In order for the system to correctly monitor tires for under-inflation, there should be a total of exactly 4 sensors fitted to the vehicle wheels. There should be no other sensors in the vehicle as this could cause the system to monitor the wrong sensors or fail to learn a newly installed sensor.

Servicing



Control Unit

Specific to:

Honda CR-V 2007-2008

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    NOTE
    Make sure the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) control unit mounting bracket is not bent or twisted as this may affect its communication with the tire pressure sensors.

  2.  
  3. Make sure the ignition switch in LOCK (0).
  4.  
  5. Remove both sides of the front console covers.
  6.  
  7. Remove the dashboard center lower cover.
  8.  
  9. Disconnect the TPMS control unit connector (A).
  10.  
  11. Remove the TPMS control unit (B) from the bracket (C).
    NOTE
    While separating the TPMS control unit from the bracket, release the hook (D) on the TPMS control unit using a flat-tipped screwdriver (E), and push up to release it from the bracket.

  12.  

To install:

  1. Install the TPMS control unit in the reverse order of removal.
    NOTE
    Make sure the TPMS control unit is properly installed. A click will be heard when the TPMS control unit is securely mounted onto the bracket.

  2.  
  3. Connect the Honda Diagnostics System (HDS) and memorize the pressure sensor IDs using the TPMS sensor initializer tool. Refer to Memorizing The Tire Sensor ID.

  4.  

Memorizing The Tire Sensor Id

Special tools required:



TPMS sensor initializer tool AKS0620006
 
Honda Diagnostics System (HDS) scan tool
 

All 4 tire pressure sensor IDs must be memorized to the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) control unit whenever you do any of these actions:



Replace the TPMS control unit
 
Replace the tire pressure sensor
 
Substitute a known-good wheel with an existing tire pressure sensor
 

  1. To ensure the control unit memorizes the correct ID, the vehicle with a new sensor must be at least 10 ft. (3m) away from any other vehicle containing tire pressure sensors.
    NOTE
    When doing a tire rotation, memorizing the sensors is not a required procedure.

  2.  
  3. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  4.  
  5. With the ignition switch in LOCK (0), connect the HDS to the Data Link Connector (DLC) located under the driver's side of the dashboard.
  6.  
  7. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
  8.  
  9. Make sure the HDS communicates with the vehicle and the TPMS control unit. If it fails to connect, troubleshoot the DLC circuit.
  10.  
  11. Select SENSOR ID LEARNING from the model menu on the HDS.
  12.  
  13. Follow the HDS screen prompts to turn on the TPMS sensor initializer tool (A). Verify that the power switch (B) is in the low position.
    NOTE
    If the power switch is in the high position, more than one sensor or sensors on other vehicles may be activated. Make sure the power switch is in the low position.

  14.  
  15. Hold the TPMS sensor initializer tool near one wheel and memorize the pressure sensor ID by following the screen prompts on the HDS.
    NOTE
    If the ignition switch is turned to LOCK (0) before memorizing all 4 sensor IDs, the memorizing ID is canceled. If more than one sensor ID is displayed on the HDS, verify that the power switch is in the Low position, the vehicle has not been driven for 5 minutes, and there are no other vehicles within 10 ft. (3m). See the HDS HELP menu for specific instructions.

  16.  
  17. Repeat step 6 for each wheel until all 4 sensor IDs are memorized. When all 4 IDs are memorized, the low tire pressure indicator blinks.
  18.  
  19. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
  20.  
  21. Disconnect the HDS from the DLC.
  22.  
  23. Test-drive the vehicle at 28 mph (45 km/h) or more for at least 1 minute.
  24.  
  25. Make sure the low tire pressure indicator does not blink.
  26.  
  27. Make sure the tires are properly inflated to the specified tire pressure.
