If your tire pressure monitor light comes on, it’s a telltale sign that you need to check your tire pressure, as it’s likely to become unsafe to drive long distances. Here’s how to check the tire pressure on a 2017 Honda Accord:
  1. Turn the engine off or turn the key to accessories mode—it doesn’t matter which one.
  2. Exit the vehicle and take a look at the inside door jamb. Here you should see a placard that has the correct PSI for the Accord’s tires.
  3. Unscrew the cap on the valve stem to get access to the valve stem itself.
  4. Press the tire gauge onto the valve stem. This will give you a proper PSI (pounds per square inch) rating.
  5. Inflate with compressed air until you reach the correct PSI level. You can also take air out of the tire by using the backside of the tire gauge.
  6. Repeat for all the other tires of the vehicle.
  7. If done correctly, your tire pressure monitoring light should turn off the car should handle like a charm once again!
