How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Filling Tire with Air

You’ve inflated your tires to the right PSI, but your tire pressure light is still on. It happens sometimes, and you may need to reset it. Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is essential to the safety of your vehicle, and it’s important to ensure it’s activated. If you’re running into any problems with your TPMS light on, follow these steps, or bring your vehicle to the service center at Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you have properly inflated your tires, the tire pressure light should go off on its own. If it stays on, there are few things you can do:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. This can cause your sensor to reset the next time you turn on the car.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “on” position, but don’t start the car. Hold the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is usually located beneath the steering wheel. If you are unable to find it, refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Be sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. Once they’re all deflated, re-inflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This will discharge any power still stored in the vehicle. Then reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

The tire pressure sensors use a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light is often a sign that the battery needs to be replaced. It could also indicate a problem with one of the sensors. Either way, you will want to schedule a service appointment at Sam Leman Toyota Bloomington.

We can inspect your vehicle, diagnose the problem, and get you back on the road safely in a timely manner.
