Normal for what happened to you,

As long as the replacement tire is the same exact size as the other three, all you have to do is reset your TPMS. Hold the button down until it flashes at you.

You might have to disconnect the battery terminals from the battery, touch the non-powered terminals together for a second, then re-install the terminals connections to the battery posts.

Make sure your original TPMS sensor in the damaged wheel was not damaged/missing itself.

After holding down the button, you have to drive the car to allow the re-calibration to take place. You can't just hold the button then shut the car off.

Newsweek regrets the error.

If that doesn't work, then your car has become self-aware, Skynet is active, and we all gonna die.

OP did you fix the issue w/ RickBlaine's advice? I had the exact same situation today. Didn't have time to replace flat tire yet.

I'm having the same problem too. Changed one tire due to a blow out from a pothole, now the three warning lights won't go out. Any solutions other than going to the dealership?

Hi, i have a issue with my 2015 Accord EX-L V6 after hitting a pothole and having to put my spare tire on and get a new tire for my wheel. Today i had the wheel mounted and got an alignment, i went to my vehicle settings and when i try to calibrate it says “Calibration failed” and my tpms light starts blinking and then stops. Does anyone have any experience on this problem? (It’s the same exact tire as the last, size and brand.) Thanks!

How hard did you hit that pothole @9thgenaccord93 ?

IMHO I believe it to be the wheel speed sensor but no one seems to have the ABS light illuminate.

Read post 2's link and understand the TPMS system used on 2013's and up.

The sensor may have been knocked loose, damaged internally on the hub (I believe that sensor reads a part in the hub).

Does the ABS still work?

If you have still been driving the vehicle it has probably reset on its own by now. No tpms Sensors on 9th gen accords.
