    I appear to be having this exact same problem with only my rear left tire! Guess I'll have it checked for leaks at the upcoming service!

    Hello,
    I brought the car in to the Honda place twice. It improved slightly but still triggered the TPS every few weeks.
    I went to a local tire shop and paid $20 to have them check for leaks. They cleaned the tire and rim seals and remounted the the tire.
    This was early summer and it's been good since then.

    Barry.

    Hi there, I had this problem for a good long while.. The first time I took it to the dealership and told them about it they checked everything and said there were no issues the techs could find (and I was too lazy to try and make them double check). I eventually went back after a long while for another regular service and had them check again...again they said it was all good - so I told them they need to check more carefully because it is definitely losing air faster than the rest and has been for some time. They ended up finding a nail in the one tire (somehow they missed it....TWICE!). So that ended up being the issue that caused this for me.

    A nail with a small head (finish nail), or one that is worn from being in the tread, is very difficult to see even if the tire is off the car.
    Had one a few years back that was loosing a pound a week with the other 3 tires loosing none - took quite a while to find a roofing nail with a worn-off head in the tread.
