They gave the wrong manual to your friend then! He should go to the dealer ! Also, your car doesn't have Tire Pressure Management System as only 09+ models have that!What I find strange is that if the car was purchased with the system for tire pressure do not see any reference in the manual and even the manual for my Civic does not come any reference to this error.
I am referring to my friend, but I do not know if my car will also have the tire pressure system ... I have to empty a tire on my Civic and see if the same error appears .
