Honda Odyssey Owners Manual: If a Tire Goes Flat

Changing a Flat Tire

If a tire goes flat while driving, grasp the steering wheel firmly, and brake gradually to reduce speed. Then, stop in a safe place. Replace the flat tire with a compact spare tire. Go to a dealer as soon as possible to have the full-size tire repaired or replaced.

1. Park the vehicle on firm, level, non-slippery surface and apply the parking brake.
2. Move the shift lever to .
3. Turn on the hazard warning lights and turn the ignition switch to LOCK .

Periodically check the tire pressure of the compact spare. It should be set to the specified pressure.

Specified Pressure: 60 psi (420 kPa, 4.2 kgf/cm2) When driving with the compact spare tire, keep the vehicle speed under 50 mph (80 km/h). Replace with a full-size tire as soon as possible.

The compact spare tire and wheel in your vehicle are specifically for this model.

Do not use them with another vehicle.

Do not use another type of compact spare tire or wheel with your vehicle.

Do not mount tire chains on a compact spare tire.

If a chain-mounted front tire goes flat, remove one of the full-size rear tires and replace it with the compact spare tire. Remove the flat front tire and replace it with the full-size tire that was removed from the rear.

Mount the tire chains on the front tire.

U.S. models only

Do not use a puncture-repairing agent on a flat tire, as it can damage the tire pressure sensor.

■Getting Ready to Replace the Flat Tire

1. Remove the floor mat under the second row seat.
2. Pull up the floor carpet.
3. Lift up the floor lid using the handle and remove it.

4. Take the tool case out of the spare tire well.

Take the jack and wheel nut wrench out of the tool case.
5. Unscrew the wing bolt, and remove the spacer cone. Then, remove the spare tire.

6. Place a wheel block or rock in front and rear of the wheel diagonal to the flat tire.

7. Place the compact spare tire (wheel side up) under the vehicle body, near the tire that needs to be replaced.

8. Loosen each wheel nut about one turn using the wheel nut wrench.

■How to Set Up the Jack

1. Place the jack under the jacking point closest to the tire to be changed.

2. Turn the end bracket (as shown in the image) clockwise until the top of the jack contacts the jacking point.
►  Make sure that the jacking point tab is resting in the jack notch.

3. Raise the vehicle, using the jack handle bar and the jack handle, until the tire is off the ground.

WARNING
The vehicle can easily roll off the jack, seriously injuring anyone underneath.

Follow the directions for changing a tire exactly, and never get under the vehicle when it is supported only by the jack.

■TPMS and the Spare Tire

Models with information display

If you replace a flat tire with the spare tire, the low tire pressure indicator comes on while you are driving. After driving for a few miles (kilometers), the indicator will go off and the TPMS indicator comes on, but this is normal.

If you replace the tire with a specified regular tire, the low tire pressure or TPMS indicator will go off after a few miles (kilometers).

Models with multi-information displ

If you replace a flat tire with the spare tire, the low tire pressure/TPMS indicator comes on while you are driving. After driving for a few miles (kilometers), the indicator will start blinking for a short time and then stay on. CHECK TPMS SYSTEM appears on the multi-information display, but this is normal.

If you replace the tire with a specified regular tire, the warning message on the multi-information display and the TPMS indicator will go off after a few miles (kilometers).

The system cannot monitor the pressure of the spare tire. Manually check the spare tire pressure to be sure that it is correct.

Use TPMS specific wheels. Each is equipped with a tire pressure sensor mounted inside the tire behind the valve stem.
