2014 Honda CR-V wheels / hubs problems: faulty TPMS

Faulty TPMS

2014 Honda CR-V (Page 1 of 3)

This problem may be covered under warranty. Ask your Honda dealer.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2014 Honda CR-V has a trend of engine hesitation when accelerating.

Honda has tried to fix this delayed acceleration with a software update, but many owners report it didn't fix the problem.

This defect trend is not quite bad enough yet for us to slap on the "Beware of the Clunker" seal. But it's a concern & definitely something to keep in mind for a test drive.

I bought my wife's Honda 2014 CR-V new in October of 2014. We are both quite happy with the car, with one significant exception. The TPMS does not work. In 2014 Honda changed their TPMS from the conventional system which uses pressure sensors in the wheels. Instead, it compares the revolutions of the tires on the theory that a low tire will rotate faster than a normally inflated tire. This is a good idea in theory. However, in practice it does not work. The software must account for the fact that the tires do not rotate equally on turns. Also, slight (and acceptable) differences in pressure or tire wear will result in errors that the software must deal with. Honda issued TSB 14-006 in an attempt to remedy the problem, but if it has been applied to our car it has not worked. The TPMS light on our CR-V is unreliable. It occasionally lights when the tires are ok, but has failed to indicate low or flat tires for us several times.

My wife went to the dealer in Prescott, AZ, this morning to ask whether TSB 14–006 has been applied to the car. The reply was that there is no recall and if the TPMS light does not stay on, there is no need to do it.

We can live with a non-functional TPMS system. Our previous cars worked well without it. Our normal maintenance procedures require checking tire pressures periodically. For some reason this car does not pull to the side when a tire goes flat. A TPMS should flag a tire failure when on the road. Three times we have had a tire fail while driving, with no TPMS indication. Our loss has been only three tires; no accident resulted. In my opinion this is potentially a serious safety problem.

The TPMS light has always come on and so far, never reporting a true problem. Replaced complete set of tires and the problem still occurs. Often lights up on trips where the temperature has changed. Reset the TPMS light and it comes back on after a period of time and again all tires are properly inflated, so I reset the TPMS again. This problem has been occurring for 4+ years. The only problem we have had with this vehicle so far.

The tire warning light goes on frequently to indicate a problem with the tire pressure, yet upon having it shipped either at the dealer or any tire service center, the tire pressure is OK and then really reset the warning light. I have noticed online that perhaps a software update might be a fix, or at least that’s what people have been told. The same people are saying that the fix has not been completely successful as the problem still occurs but maybe not as frequently. This malfunction of the warning light system has occurred on my vehicle probably 5 to 6 times per year. It is annoying in the sense that you want to do stuff to be sure there’s not something wrong with the tires and then each time there is nothing wrong. It seems to me that this is a problem that Honda should be defined in light of the huge number of Honda owners. It could become a safety issue if people begin to assume the light is malfunctioning and that there is not a tire problem and then one day there may be a tire problem that has been ignored and an accident occurs

I purchased this pre-owned car with warranty, the Santa Monica dealer sold it to me with the plug, we didn't know about it until we had the sensor go off. Reseda Dealer says that we had put the plug on the tire and that because of the plug we need to replace it. There are plenty of complaints about this sensor and dealer is trying to avoid replacing it by saying that sensor goes off because of the plug!

I'm going to corporate for this, I have taken the car 3 times to the dealer and always get a different excuse!

I have owned 2014 CR-V for 3 & half years since it was new. the indirect TPMS warning system has NEVER been correct, it ALWAYS gives false readings. When I picked up a nail in one tire, the warning light never came on even though the tire pressure dropped by over 50%. When the warning light does come on, I check all tires and they are all fine - EVERY TIME. After multiple frustrating trips to dealer, the best they could do was a software update. Now instead of false warnings 3 -4 times a month, now I get false warnings 3 - 4 times a

year. But the warnings are ALWAYS false! Like the little boy that keeps crying wolf, this system is counter productive in that owners will begin to ignore the warning system altogether.

Before I could pay my first car note, the TPS light came on. I brought my car back to the Honda dealership and all they did was reset it. Every time I get on the interstate, the light comes on. Honda has reprogrammed my computer three different times at two different dealerships, yet the light continues to come on. Blake, at the dealership where I bought the car, told me to "Ignore the light. We know that there is a problem with it, and basically, 10 years ago, this wasn't even an option on cars". So I did ignore it, when it came on, and instead of pulling over to check the tire pressure, as I did all of the previous times, I ignored it until I got home, which was less than 2 miles from when it originally came on. I had only 10# of air in my tire, when the light finally came on. Now the dealership is telling me that the light is coming on because my back tires need to be changed...but keep in mind, 10# of air left in the tire before it came on when I was driving on a city street, as opposed to it constantly coming on when I drive on the interstate. I was also told that it was because the tread was different on the front tires from the back tires. Yet, 10# before the light came on, on city streets. I am VERY disappointed in the service I have received and also the quality of the vehicle. All I get from Honda is the runaround because they refuse to fix a known problem that has been documented several times at both dealerships in this area. This was my 4th Honda; not seeing that I will have an urge to buy a 5th.

Update from Feb 10, 2017: I definitely was sold a brand new, $26,000 lemon from the dealership.

I had a flat tire that the sensing light did not trigger. I called Honda and they were no help.

Ended up needing to get a new tire but if the light had gone on I would have stopped immediately.

This light keeps popping up after I had a tire rotation. I went to the dealer 4 times already. The first time, they just reset, the other times the updated the software. Nothing really fix the problem. This time, the dealer has the car for more than 2 weeks and did not really have the answer. They blamed the tires for being used too much, too many miles. What a bunch of BS, useless engineers and machinists, who have no common sense.

This was a problem in my 2007 Honda CR-V and my 2014 they have added a button to push to reset this tire warning light. Well it still comes on once in a while and have gotten so I ignore it which is not safe. Either fix it right or take it off and let the owner check his own tires on a regular basis

The tire pressure light in my Honda CR-V has continually comes on since December 2015 when the service techs at Honda of Bay County balanced and rotated my tires. The service tech at Honda of Bay County continually tells me that the tire pressure light comes on because one of the tires rolls faster than the other tires and causes the light to come on. The service tech also said that Honda wants car owners to check their own tire pressure and to reset the light themselves. Are Honda CR-v owners to ignore the tire pressure light because when it comes on. The service Techs at Honda of Bay County have offered no solutions to this issue other than to reset the light yourself. How are we to know if the tire pressure light comes on because there is a real problem with the tires or the tire pressure light just needs to be reset. This is a really safety issue and needs to be addressed by Honda.

faulty TPMS

After bought a new 2014 CR-V ,the tire pressure light is on just pass first month.I went to Honda service department .The stuff told me it's normal and reset it.

But the light is on after each 1 or 2 months, so i have to come to Honda service department again and again each 1 or 2 months.

Initially i was given all sorts of lines like, it's the temperature the tires are over/under inflated, it's normal.

Each time they just reset it and let me back.

I have been Honda dealership at least 8 times,the problem still happened.

Last time i went service department is two months ago, at this moment, the light is on from this week.
