  1. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
  2.  
  3. Remove the driver's dashboard undercover.
  4.  
  5. Remove the flange bolt, and then remove the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) control unit with the bracket.
    NOTE
    The TPMS control unit is located over the accelerator pedal module.

  6.  
  7. Disconnect the TPMS control unit connector.
  8.  
  9. Remove the control unit from the bracket.
  10.

Sensor

Specific to:

Honda Accord 2008

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2.  
  3. Remove the wheel with the faulty sensor.
  4.  
  5. Remove the tire valve stem cap and the valve stem core, and let the tire deflate.
  6.  
  7. Remove any balance weights, and then break the bead loose from the wheel with a commercially available tire changer.
  8.  
  9. Position the wheel so the tire machine and the tire iron are next to the valve stem, and will move away from it when the machine starts. Then remove the tire from the wheel.
  10.  
  11. Remove the valve stem nut and the washer, and then remove the tire pressure sensor with the valve stem from the wheel.
  12.  
  13. Remove and discard the valve stem grommet from the tire pressure sensor.
  14.  

To install:

  1. Before installing the tire pressure sensor, clean the mating surfaces on the sensor and the wheel.
  2.  
  3. Install the tire pressure sensor and the washer to the wheel, and tighten the valve stem nut finger tight. Make sure the pressure sensor is resting on the wheel.
  4.  
  5. Tighten the valve stem nut to the specified torque while holding the tire pressure sensor.
  6.  
  7. Lube the tire bead sparingly with a paste-type tire mounting lubricant, and position the wheel so the tire machine and tire iron are next to the valve stem and will move away from it when the machine starts. Then install the tire onto the wheel.
  8.  
  9. With a dry air source, inflate the tire to 44 psi to seat the tire bead to the rim, then adjust the tire pressure, then install the valve stem cap.
  10.  
  11. Check and adjust the wheel balance.
  12.  
  13. Install the wheel, lower the vehicle and tighten the lug nuts.
  14.  
  15. Connect the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS), and memorize the tire pressure sensor IDs using the TPMS sensor initializer tool.
