Honda Accord 2014 - Low tire pressure comes every other day

Hi guys. We have 2014 accord with 100k . After changing my tires, i see the low pressure light.
I checked tires - looks good ~ 34psi
I resetted the light, after 2-3 days of driving it comes back.
Again, tires are fine. Drives fine.
But that light drives me nuts. I am out of warranty so dont like the idea of visiting mechanic.
Any experience with the new tpms system that accord has?

TPMS sensor not linked to correct tire position........ that means it's trying to look for a sensor with code a but code b tire installed in that spot....... Get it fixed by a mechanic or deal with light. Ur choice.....

I'd like to fix it by myself.
The problem is how to diagnose it?
This is not regular tpms but a rotational. Reads data based on the rotation of the tire.
All 4 tires are inflated equally with 86-90 torque.

I drive a Lexus ES and the tpms light comes on also when the spare tire (my car has a full size spare) is low on air. Might want to check that also.

The accord does not have tpms sensors. It uses the wheel speed sensor to determine if a tire is low in pressure. Either a tire is out of round causing the car to think the pressure is different or you have a speed sensor failed. Scan for speed sensor codes and go from there.

My indirect tpms is very sensitive to changes in pressure. Are you sure one tire is not loosing 1 psi? I would inspect each for a puncture.

All these 4 years I was using the same 4 tires and it was fine.

I tried to calibrate multiple times. The light goes out and then after three days comes back.

I will check today the pressure, spare tire, inspect visually for nails inside, who knows...
Will report back.

lol @ technology.... Rather than making life easy , it is making life difficult.
I wish they still made some cars with no frills... Back up camera, this sensor, that sensor . These things go wrong sooner and later and owner is on hook to get those corrected via d(st)ealership.

Make sure the tire shop did not install one off sized tire.
