What does the Honda dashboard warning light TPMS mean?
TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitor System. If you have a low tire on some models this will show via a picture of your vehicle and which tire is low. If you had a slow leak on a tire and used fix a flat then you probably messed up the TPMS and that is why you have that light on your instrument cluster.
Repairing A Flat Tire?
No one wants to find themselves stranded on the side of the road with a flat tire, no spare, no roadside assistance, and no phone; but in case this unfortunate predicament happens to you, here are a couple tips. � Carry a canned tire inflator with you. These can be used to inflate the tire and seal the leak until you can get to a shop. � In case of a slow leak, carry a compact portable air compressor. Many available can plug into the accessory outlet in your car. Before you leave for a trip, check your tire pressure, the status and pressure of your spare tire and that you have the tools necessary to change a flat.

Why would you slowly be losing air in a tire overnight but not all the way flat?
A slow air leak can be caused by a puncture in the tire itself, a leaking valve stem, or improper sealing between the tire and rim. Bring the vehicle back to the garage you bough the tires from and have them inspect it for leaks. When they remove the tire to inspect it, they will clean the outer edge of the rim (to make it seal better) and replace the valve stem, even if there is no hole in the tire.
Your tire symbol has been on for two weeks and when it is press ed the button stays off for a short time and then returns?
My 2001 Toyota Sienna has a tire pressure sensor- that's what the "tire symbol" means- and it tells you that your tire pressure is too low. Stop by any decent service center and they will check your tire pressure and air up your tires for free. Then you can press the button and it will stay off. If it doesn't, you have a faulty sensor (unlikely) or a slow leak (get tire fixed).
