Odyssey TPMS Failure    (Score: 1, Normal) 11-19-2007 12:51

With less than 1800 miles on our '07 Odyssey the TPMS failure light came on. Dealer replaced the two indicated wheel sensors but the system would not sync. They decided to replace the TPMS module which they had to order.

Brought the Odyssey back in a week later and they replaced the TPMS module...twice! and the system would still not work. The also replaced all four wheel sensors. After having the vehicle in the shop for 8 days they swapped all four wheels/tires from another Odyssey and they system synced and the light went off.

A day later and less than 20 miles driven and the light is back on. Dropped it off again today and wondering how long they will have it this time. We are getting frustrated! Anyone have a similar problem or have any suggestions?

I do have to say that our dealer has been very good in this situation. They gave us another Odyssey as a loaner and have kept us informed daily. We just miss having our van!

It's most likely the change in temperature that is causing the tire pressure to fluctuate (and therefore, causing the light to come on). We have an 06 Pilot that does the same thing around this time every year (literally like clock work). One day it targets the left, front tire. The following day, it targets the other three. It continues this fluctuation for a few days and finally readjusts on its own. We have just learned to expect it as it gets colder. Not sure if it's anything Honda can do because the pressure is actually fluctuating.

It's not the low tire pressure warning light that comes on but the TPMS failure (Entire TPMS System Failure) warning that comes on. One is a picture of a low tire with an "!", the other is the letters "TPMS" which indicates the system is not working. It has nothing to do with the weather. Thanks for the reply though.

Aaah technology.

Whatever happened to the old "walk around" the car.

Of course, I noticed the other day that my wife was driving with an almost flat front tire (>10PSI when just warm). Turns out she had a nail on it. And she never noticed!!!

Was there water inside the tire when they changed out the sensors? Many gas stations don't have moisture filters on their air filling pumps and the water can ruin the sensors.

No water. And they changed the sensors multiple times and then installed an entirely new set of wheels and tires!

Depend on your state, I guess that you can file a lemon now...

Force Honda to buy it back, and get a new one...

TPMS is an Active Safety Feature, hence it is important...

Our Ody only spent one night this time. They were able to reset the sensors (calibrate them or whatever) and the light went off. Hopefully it won't come on again. Have driven it several days now with no problems. Did verify the TPMS works, the low tire light came on briefly because of the cold weather.

Mine never on, and it is 25- in the morning, 55+ during the day...

Ours kicked in twice this week. Our early morning temps are hovering around 43 deg or so.

It happened to my wife yesterday and after driving for a while the warning went away. She got on the freeway ( yes she checked on the tires first ) and it took quite a while for the warning to go away.

I drove early this morning on surface streets, about 15 miles round trip and the warning never went away.

The tires looked fine so I guess this is indeed related to the cold weather.
