The factory supplied tire pressure system on my 2009 CRV sometimes
lights the TPMS idiot light on the dash.

Tires look OK to me.

I understand this can be common with these Hondas.

Any thoughts on this?

That light on our 2009 CRV stays lit all the time. My understanding is it doesn't have anything to do with tire pressure as much as the entire monitoring system is not functioning. When our CRV was new, it worked intermittently and dealer spent many hours troubling shooting. Then it worked for a while till the warranty expired and quite again. I need to figure out how to remove that bulb.

There are two common TPMS systems on cars.

one uses a pressure sensor inside the tire that talks wirelessly with the computer under the hood or dash.

The other uses the ABS sensors to measure the speed of tire rotation.
Both are subject to sensor failures. Sorry can't help you beyond that.

This is currently a widely known problem with the 2014 CR-V and lots of discussion on Honda Owners sites. Mine has come on 4 times in the first 1700 miles and according to Honda they are working on a solution with no known date to resolve. I thought that the issue was the NEW system that uses the ABS sensor to detect difference in rotation rate of tires and or senses height difference. Some of the other models of Honda's use an actual pressure sensor in each tire. Did not know of the problem in earlier models. But stay tuned to see if Honda can figure it out.

My 2012 CR-V uses wireless sensors inside the tires. Never had a false reading problem with them. I thought the ABS system was old technology and was being taken over by wireless sensors, but maybe its the other way around.
