Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Acura RLX / Acura RLX 2013-2019 Owner's Manual / Driving / When Driving / Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Monitors the tire pressure while you are

Monitors the tire pressure while you are driving. If your vehicle’s tire pressure becomes significantly low, the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on and a message appears on the multi-information display.

Conditions such as low ambient temperature and altitude change directly affect tire pressure and can trigger the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to come on.

Tire pressure checked and inflated in: • Warm weather can become under-inflated in colder weather.
• Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer weather.

The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator will not come on as a result of over inflation.

To select the tire pressure monitor, set the power

To select the tire pressure monitor, set the power mode to ON, and roll the right selector wheel until you see the tire pressure screen.

The pressure for each tire is displayed in PSI (U.S.) or kPa (Canada).

Tire Pressures Low/CHECK TIRE PRESSURE

Tire Pressures Low/CHECK TIRE PRESSURE
is displayed when a tire has significantly low pressure. The specific tire is displayed on the screen.

The pressure displayed on the multi-information display can be slightly different from the actual pressure as measured by a gauge. If there is a significant difference between the two values, or if the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator and the message on the multi-information display do not go off after you have inflated the tire to the specified pressure, have the system checked by a dealer.

Tire Pressure Monitor Problem/CHECK TPMS SYSTEM may appear if you drive with the compact spare tire*, or there is a problem with the TPMS.
