1Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)  
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)  
Instead of directly measuring the pressure in each tire, the TPMS on this vehicle  
monitors and compares the rolling radius and rotational characteristics of each  
wheel and tire while you are driving to determine if one or more tires are  
significantly under-inflated. This will cause the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator to  
come on and a message to appear on the multi-information display*.  
The system does not monitor the tires when driving  
at low speed.  
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.  
TPMS Calibration  
Tire pressure checked and inflated in:  
You must start TPMS calibration every time you:  
Adjust the pressure in one or more tires.  
Rotate the tires.  
Replace one or more tires.  
u Before calibrating the TPMS, turn the ignition switch to ON (w*1, and make  
sure that the vehicle is at a complete stop.  
Warm weather can become under-inflated in  
colder weather.  
Cold weather can become over-inflated in warmer  
weather.  
The low tire pressure indicator will not come on as a  
result of over inflation.  
Models with information display  
The TPMS may not function properly if tire type and  
size are mixed. Make sure to use the same size and  
type of tire.  
Low Tire Pressure/  
TPMS Indicator  
Press and hold the TPMS button.  
u The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator  
blinks a few times.

TPMS  
Button  
The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on  
with a delay or may not come on at all when:  
If the indicator does not blink a few times, the  
calibration is not successful. Press and hold  
the TPMS button again.  
You rapidly accelerate, decelerate, or turn the  
steering wheel.  
You drive on snowy or slippery roads.  
Snow chains are used.  
The low tire pressure/TPMS indicator may come on  
under the following conditions:  
A compact spare tire is used.  
There is a heavier and uneven load on the tires,  
such as when towing a trailer, than the condition at  
calibration.  
*1: Models with the smart entry system have an ENGINE START/STOP button  
instead of an ignition switch.  
Snow chains are used.  
* Not available on all models

1TPMS Calibration  
You can calibrate the system from the customized features on the multi-information  
display.  
TPMS cannot be calibrated if a compact spare tire is  
installed.  
The calibration process requires approximately 30  
minutes of cumulative driving at speeds between  
30-60 mph (48-97 km/h).  
During this period, if the ignition is turned on*1 and  
the vehicle is not moved within 45 seconds, you  
may notice the low tire pressure indicator comes on  
briefly. This is normal and indicates that the  
calibration process is not yet complete.  
1. Press  
button.  
2. Press the SEL/RESET button.  
u The display switches to the customization setup screen, where you can select  
Cancel or Calibrate.  
3. Press the  
button to select TPMS CALIBRATION, then press the SEL/RESET  
button and select Calibrate, then press the SEL/RESET button.  
u Calibration Started screen appears, then the display returns to the  
customization menu screen.  
If the snow chains are installed, remove them before  
calibrating the TPMS.  
If the Calibration Failed to Start message appears, repeat steps 2-3.  
If the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on even  
when the properly inflated specified regular tires are  
installed, have the vehicle checked by a dealer.  
We recommend that the tires be replaced with the  
same brand, model, and size as the originals. Ask a  
dealer for details.  
*1: Models with the smart entry system have an  
ENGINE START/STOP button instead of an ignition  
switch.
