The swap the control unit thing didn't work from what I read... but it's number 9 on this diagram if that helps. Under the dash.

This is what i found from MANUAL-EXL:

After reading the service manual, it seemed to me that the codes for the tire sensors are stored in the control module. I asked the tech at the local Honda dealer about possibly using separate summer and winter controllers. He said that the controller would lose the codes when powered down, but there was a flicker of doubt in his answer. I figured that I would test this by pulling my TPMS control out overnight to see if it would retain the codes and it did. I can't imagine that they wouldn't use non-volatile memory to store (4) short codes. I bit the bullet and bought a junkyard control unit for $45 to be programed for the winter tires. I haven't had this control programed yet and will post again if there are any issues.

The true test will be in the spring when I put the original control with the summer wheel codes back in. If it doesn't work I am only out $45. Dealer charges $47 or 1/2 hour.

I figured I would post this now if anybody else is about to mount their TPS equipped winter tires and wants to give this a shot.

-ymmv

Then....

Mounted Snow tires. Drove 15 some miles and the "TPMS" light came on. Removed original TPMS control with summer tire codes. Installed junkyard TPMS Control. Started car and got "Low tire pressure [ ! ]" warning light. Verified snow tires had proper pressure. Drove 10 or so miles and "[ ! ]" warning light went out, "TPMS" light came on. This leads me to believe the junkyard unit detected low tire pressure before it was removed and stored the code. Brought car to Honda for wheel sensor read and program. 150 miles and no "TPMS" light as expected.

I fully expect to be able to swap the summer tires and control module back in without having to go back to the dealer for a reprogram. If we have a snow-free stretch of weather over Christmas break, I will try this out and post a new unique thread if it works.

I DO NOT KNOW FOR SURE YET IF THIS WORKS!!!

If anybody else is going to try this, buy the TPMS control module with the metal mounting bracket so it is easier to swap.

Then onto....

Secondly.
I mounted my summer tires and swapped in the matching TPMS controller. When I started the car, the TPMS light came on immediately. Man was I bummed out. After pulling out of my driveway, the light went out as I was shifting into 2nd and has stayed out for the last 2 days and 170 miles. Because I was able to buy "take-off" TPMS sensors for $52, a used TPMS controller for $45 and $47 for the one time dealer re-program, I have no regrets with putting TPMS in my snows.

2 days seems like a short confirmation period. I would PM him and make sure before you do anything.

I was planing to do what MANUAL-EXL did...original tpms control module with the factory 17" wheel with the tpms for my winter set-up. And, for summer, my new wheels with new tpms and a different tpms control module. Where did you read it from? Was it this link?
TPMS Necessary?

Has anyone done this before besides MANUAL-EXL?

Not that I know of. Most buy the sensors for $40 from ebay mount them and use the $100 reset tool to swap back and forth.

Read what? This? You quoted it above.

What he tested seems like it worked but just wanted to see if anyone else has done the same before I move forward.

It's a cool idea no doubt about that... may be some work to find a used TPMS control unit for $45 like he did... otherwise you can use this and end up with the same result and not have to mess around under the dash. I've seen them as low as $100... which is about the price he paid for the control unit and program.

I've done some research and that Quickset and this module changing is on the top of my list....found his method and decided to see if anyone else has done it and had any success. His method seem to be a bit cheaper, found some used oem tpms module on ebay from $40-$70, new is from $90-$120.

Found this....Use dedicated TPMS controller for winter/ summer wheel swap.
Just order a used tpms control module for $40. Going to try this method out when i get it. I'll keep you guys updated.

So I took out my original tpms control module, and putted on the other control module that I received in the mail, the tpms didn't come on that night. The next morning, drove to work, drove back home and the tpms light came on. Took the control module out and putted back on the original module and the tpms light went out. So far, it's working to my perspective. Once I put my wheels on, switch the module, and program the tpms to the module, I will let you guys know if it worked or not. It's snowing up here in Minnesota so it's going to have to wait.
