  18.  

To install:

  1. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure.
    NOTE
    You will need the Honda Diagnostic Service (HDS) tool, or equivalent, to perform the following check. If using an aftermarket tool, follow the manufacturer-s instructions that came with the tool.

  2.  
  3. Connect the Honda Diagnostic System (HDS) tool and memorize the pressure sensor ID-s. Do not memorize the ID-s automatically.
  4.  
  5. With the ignition in LOCK (O), connect the Honda Diagnostic Service (HDS) tool to the data link connector (DLC) under the driver-s side dashboard.
  6.  
  7. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
  8.  
  9. Be sure that the HDS communicates with the vehicle and the TPMS control unit. It not, trouble shoot the DLC circuit.
  10.  
  11. Memorize the ID of the tire pressure sensor by following the screen prompts of the tool.
  12.  
  13. After the ID-s are memorized, reduce the pressure in all four tires to less than specification. Check to see if the indicators come on.
  14.  
  15. Correct problems, as required.
    NOTE
    The power window reset procedure must be performed when disconnecting the battery, removing the No. 1 (20 amp) fuse in the passenger-s under dash fuse/relay box, disconnecting the 18P connector from the power window control unit, removing the window regulator, glass or glass run channel and disconnecting the driver-s door wire harness.

  16.  
  17. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
  18.  
  19. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).
  20.  
  21. Move the driver-s power window all the way down by holding the driver-s power window switch firmly down to the second detent. When the window reaches the bottom, hold the driver-s power window switch in the AUTO DOWN position for two seconds.
  22.  
  23. Move the driver-s power window all the way up without stopping by holding the driver-s power window switch firmly up to the second detent. When the window reaches the top, hold the driver-s power window switch in the AUTO UP position for two seconds.
    NOTE
    If the power window does not work in AUTO, repeat the procedure.

Pressure Monitor



Whenever the engine is running, the Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) control unit continuously monitors all four tires pressure sensors and the system. If it detects low pressure in any tire, it alerts the driver by turning on the low pressure indicator and the appropriate tire indicator. If it detects a problem in the system, it turns on the TPMS indicator.
