Good for you. So you get winter tires, slap 'em on and if the TPMS light doesn't go out, head on over to the dealership and have the parts manager flash the new codes in and report back for others like yourself.whoa said:The parts manager at my dealership keeps saying it's 8. That's why I'm asking. The user manual makes no mention of it. Anyway to confirm definitively?
What I meant is that is good for you. If you get the TPMS light after you put on winter tires, you ask him to program the TPMS system for FREE as he is the one who is saying the system works with 8 sensors. If it works, then too its good for you as then you won't have to pay anything. So, in either case, its good for you.whoa said:Huh?
The TPMS computer stores the codes of the TPMS Sensors and reads pressure information using those codes. The EXL does NOT display individual tire pressure. It only turns on an idiot light if one of the tires is low and its upto the owner to figure out which tire is low and deflate it. That should be working just the same way as your manual states.DavidGSR said:Can someone enlighten me on what the codes are?
Can my '10 EXL tell me individual pressures (does the touring do this?)? The manual seems to indicate there is just a dummy light for the system.
Yeah. That's why I had said earlier that Honda needs to be sued for this. I too am in the South (just a bit north of ya) and I don't have the problem either. But having to fork over money every season for the Northeners is not fair. Technology should be used to help folks not line pockets of big corporations and dealers. Paying a premium once for the teachology should be enough for offsetting the R&D costs.DavidGSR said:That is pretty bad - $100 each season programming fee.
