    Perfect Mr. Ed. Awesome job and many thanks for your prompt and accurate assistance.

If you have the silver-metal valve cores, on the rims, there is NO reset proceedure. Under the valve cores is a transmitter, which is battery powered. It sends a "yes/no" signal to the tire pressure ECM. Note that ALL 5 tires transmit to the ECM. The signal is "at or above" the specific target pressure needed, or is is below the target pressure. What to do: get a GOOD tire pressure gauge, not those cheap ones that look like pencils. Set the tire pressures to the specification, INCLUDING the spare. Your light should go out. If not, there is the possibility that one of the sensors is innoperative, and that will involve a trip to the dealership, to get it replaced under warranty. Try the tire pressure resetting, adn don't forget the spare. Get back to me if this works. Glad to help, and thanks for choosing FixYA.

I bought my 2006 Toyota Tacoma as a used unit and the owners manual was not in the truck. Can you tell me what the tire pressure guage indicator looks like? I have a light on my speedometer guage that looks like a sliced version of a tire and it has an exclamation point inside it. What does this indicated?
Thanks.

Tire pressure guage indicator in 2006 Toyota Tacoma


Yes, this is indictating at least 1 low tire of the 5, maybe more...Check ALL 5 tire pressures and set them to 29lbs, as per the specs and then turn your key to"ON"...then push and hold the button under the steering collumn until the light on the dash flashes 3 times, indicating that you have re-set the computer to recognize the pressure that you now have set....

Good luck.

Where is the tire sensor reset button on a 2008 Toyota Avalon


Firestone Hmmmmmm. Well the reset button is located just under the dash to the left of the steering column, hold for a few seconds and the light should go out. Hopefuly the firestone tech won't tell you your brakes need greasing the next time you go in for service, haha. Oh, I do beleive your tire pressure should be 29 psi. But, you can check your owners manual for correct pressures. It sould also tell you where the reset button is also. That should FixYa good luck.

How do I reset the low tire indicator light on a 2008 Corolla? I've already properly inflated the tires. According to the manual it's supposed to automatically reset a few minutes after proper inflation.


Have any of the tires been replaced recently? If so get the sensors checked for a dead sensor. If you have a dead sensor, blame it on your tire guy. They destroy them with unfortuante regularity.

...Just make sure that when you check the tires, use an accurate gauge. The tire pumps at service stations are not accurate, and the pen-looking things to check tire pressures are not accurate either.

Make sure you check the spare tire too; had this problem on another model and the dealer said it was the spare which is also monitored.  Good news in case you need it one day.
