Anyone have any TPMS issues? I just got mine a few days ago and the TPMS is giving me a low pressure warning but all tires are above 30 and steady.

Is there a way to check which sensor is reading low? I checked the manual and I can't find a way to check specific tire pressures within the car. I've had a few cars with TPMS and never had not had the ability to check each tire on a screen somewhere.

You probably just need to do a 'reset'. The instructions are in the manual which can be found at http://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/OM/AH/ATRW1818OM/enu/ATRW1818OM.PDF
I believe it's on page 425 but can be checked in the index. I know a reset has to be done whenever the light has been previously on but it's not hard at all to do.

There is not a way to check pressures on specific tires as some manufacturers provide but that feature is only as accurate as each tire sensor which can vary up to a few lbs. To do that, you'll need a gauge and in my opinion, every car should have a dependable one.

I've owned several cars that could read individual tire pressures that could display on the DIC (driver information center). It seemed like a great feature but the only one that had really accurate sensors was my 2014 Z51 Corvette. Even the Lexus models weren't that accurate. The Vette sensors read within 1/2 lb. pressures. I suspect the higher quality was because it was truly a high performance car. Our best bet with the Clarity is a really good gauge that cost more than $10.

There are no TPMS wheel sensors on the Clarity, car uses wheel rotation data to compare which tire is turning slower than the rest to pinpoint a "low tire" that needs to be inflated.
