The TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) sensors installed on the wheels of your Acura MDX are a safety feature designed to alert you any time the air pressure in your tires falls below a safe amount. A law was passed in the United States, effective in September 2007, requiring all passenger vehicles weighing 10,000 pounds or less operated in this country to have a working TPMS in place. Some vehicle manufacturers, however, saw fit to incorporate the safety system before the mandated 2007 date, including Acura, which started including it on the MDX for the 2004 model year.Sometimes a TPMS sensor can malfunction, become broken off or even be stolen, at which time a new sensor will have to be fitted in its place. PartsGeek.com carries a comprehensive lineup of replacement sensors designed to fit the Acura MDX, model years 2004-2011. Quality manufacturers include Standard, Replacement and Dorman.

5. Selecting a tire that will work with the TPMS system. Some cars *may* have a hard coded upper and lower tire pressure limit, which could potentially be an issue if you change tire models. For instance, the car may have originally come with a 185/65R15 86H, and a recommended pressure of 30 PSI. On this OE installed tire, 30 PSI would be adequate to maintain the 86 load rating. However, if you replaced the tire with a different model (same size & load rating), 30 PSI may not be an adequate pressure. Tire manufacturers usually list the minimum pressure to meet the stated load rating in their catalogs. If a tire with a load rating of 86 at 35 PSI is installed on a car that requires a tire with an 86 load rating and a tire placard that says 30 PSI, the tire still must be inflated to at least 35 PSI to be safe, wear properly, and achieve good fuel economy. I have heard that some cars have hard coded upper and lower limits tire pressure limits (but haven’t actually seen one yet). On a car like this, it would be very important to verify any replacement tire selected would not only meet the vehicle manufacturer’s required load rating, but would also do so at the pressure listed on the placard.

When you drive a great vehicle like the Acura MDX, taking care of it is important to you. While there are a lot of things to consider when it comes to the ongoing maintenance of your Acura, CARiD are here to help you find the tools and accessories that will make looking after your MDX much easier. One thing you need to check and replace from time to time are your Acura’s TPMS sensors. TPMS sensors monitor your tire pressure and help you keep the tires on your MDX inflated to the right level and even.

How often should I check my tire pressure? A tire doesn’t have to be damaged or punctured to lose air. All tires will lose air naturally over time, so it’s recommended that you check the pressure in all your tires, including the spare, at least once per month. Road conditions, weather conditions or other circumstances may warrant checking the pressure more often. Remember to always use a quality tire gauge when checking tire pressure. And don’t forget the spare! It may not have TPMS, but if you’re checking your tire pressure, you should check your spare tire, too.

Other improvements to the 2016 MDX include newly available driver-assistance features. AcuraWatch, a standalone package available for all MDX models, includes adaptive cruise control, pre-collision braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assistance, and road-departure prevention. Additionally, pairing AcuraWatch with the Technology Package nets the MDX’s new owner blind spot monitoring and forward collision warning, and AcuraWatch, with all of its associated features, come standard on the Advance Package.

What do I do when my TPMS light comes on during cold weather? Does this really mean my tires are low? Any time that the TPMS warning light comes ON, there is a possible low tire pressure condition. Tire pressure can drop due to cold conditions, and this drop in pressure may cause the TPMS light to come ON. As the tire warms up under normal driving conditions, the light may turn OFF. If the cold weather conditions cause the TPMS light to stay ON, check the tire pressure (when tires are cold) and inflate the tire to the proper pressure indicated on the door placard.

What should my tires be inflated to and where can I find that? Tires should be inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation as found on the vehicle tire information door placard. The vehicle placard is normally located on the inside door panel or door itself. In many cases the specified tire pressure can also be found in the vehicle owner’s manual. The pressure indicated on the sidewall of the tire should not be your guide, as that is the maximum inflation pressure for the tire itself, not for the tire when used on your specific vehicle.

If my TPMS light comes on and I put air in my tires, will the light go off by itself or do I need to take my car to the dealer or a tire shop? When the TPMS warning light comes ON and flashes ON for one second and OFF for three seconds, this indicates a problem with the vehicle’s computer and can be corrected only by the dealership service center. When the TPMS warning light comes ON and stays ON, this indicates a low tire pressure condition in one or more tires. Inflating the tire to the recommended tire pressure found on the door placard should cause the light to turn OFF. Remember that one or more of the tires may be low in pressure, so you should always check the pressure in all of your tires.

One type indicates low tire pressure, and requires nothing more than resetting the tire pressure. You should ask your customer if they have already tried this before signing them in. If they haven’t, explain how the system works & send them on their way. You can set their tire pressures for them, but bear in mind that if they just drove in, you won’t be setting pressures cold. If the customer says they’ve already tried setting their tire pressure, and they sound like they have been doing it correctly, sign them in for inspection.

What does placard mean? The tire placard is a term used for the tire information label. It contains information including the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure for your vehicle, the recommended tire size and the maximum load you should have in your vehicle. The placard is normally located inside the driver’s side doorframe or doorpost, or it may be adhered to the edge of the driver’s door or the inside of the glove box door or trunk lid. The same information is also located in your owner’s manual.

America’s bestselling luxury seven-seater is getting a little bit nicer, with updates announced for the 2016 Acura MDX crossover. Headlining the changes is a new nine-speed automatic transmission, mated to the carryover 3.5L V-6 producing 290 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque. The new transmission comes standard on all 2016 MDXs and is operated by an electronic selector rather than a traditional gearshift.

Acura says the transmission selects gears 25 percent faster than the gearbox it replaces, and with closer gear ratios, we’d expect the new MDX to outperform its predecessor by a slim margin. Additionally, the company claims that the electronic selector creates more “working space” in the center console, but it’s still located in the same position is the current model’s gearshift. We think that’s a bit of a missed opportunity: placing the gear selector on the instrument panel (as on the Lincoln MKC and Ram pickup) would have opened up space in the center console for additional storage.

Amazingly, the nine-speed auto is lighter than the six-speed in this year’s MDX by 66 pounds, improving both performance and efficiency. Additionally, the optional Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system is lighter by 19 pounds as well. Cutting weight from a vehicle’s drivetrain can have a dramatic effect on its responsiveness, so this Acura should maintain its reputation as a sporty, fun SUV.

Interestingly, no styling changes were made, but we don’t really think changes are necessary. The MDX is still a sharp, fresh SUV, and we think Acura’s design language works very well on the seven-seater’s bigger canvas.

First, a little history. Most of the early tire pressure monitoring systems used the anti-lock brake system’s wheel speed sensors to determine if a tire was low on pressure. If a tire is low, the effective circumference is reduced, so the wheel will spin more times than the other three at the same vehicle speed. The ABS control unit would notice this, and turn the TPMS light on. This was an inexpensive system because it used the components already installed on the car. The problem was that it was not very accurate. This type of TPMS is called “indirect” TPMS.
