Sounds like you just need to reset the tire pressure system. It won't hurt to drive. Check your owner's manual on how to reset, or ask your dealer.

I bought two rims with TPMS capability and put winter tires on them for my 2007 Honda Civic. I can not clear the TPMS light. I would think I would have to tell the TPMS that I have new/different rims on...


The new sensor I.D.'s will need to be programmed into the TPMS system. You could spend a couple of thousand dollars to get the tools to do this or call around some local shop or the dealer to see what the get for this. Then next summer you get to reprogram them again.

The other option is to pull 2 TPMS sensors out of your summer tires and install them into your winter wheels. Use a TPMS service kit to seal them up. You won't need to reprogram anything if you go this route.

The third option is not to worry about it. The old fashioned way of doing things was to check your tires every couple weeks for proper inflation. If you are in tune with the way your vehicle handles than you should be able to notice the change in the handling characteristics as a tire goes low. After all we survived for 100 years without TPMS.

My 2008 chev impala has been telling me to service my tire monitor system. I have just rotated back to all seasons which are the spec size for the car. The winter size I had on were 1 size smaller. I think...


One of the tire pressure sensors may have been incorrectly installed or there may be a problem with this systems control module.
I recommend you bring it back to the shop that sold you the tires and tell them the problem.
Remember 2008 is still under warranty ( if milage is applicable)

What kind of tires does my car use?? I have a scion tc 2005.. and im about to change its 4 tires for the first time.. but i was wondering if they have to be the exact same size.. any ideas?


Your tire size is marked on the sidewall of your tire, it will read something like this, P205/70R15. There may be other numbers or letters but these are the critical ones that the tire shop needs to fit new tires on your car.
You car is set up to run on a specific size tire but changes can be made, for any number of reasons, without too many problems as long as you know what to expect. Changing the P205 number will change tour speedometer about 2 mph per size. Going from P205 to P195 will slow the car down and going up to P215 will speed it up the same. The speedometer will read the same but the car will be moving at the new rate of speed.
Changing the middle number, 70 will make your tire wider or narrower and the numbers work backwards. A 60 tire is wider than a 70 tire. This can affect your gas mileage but one number won't be especially noticeable. If you are buying snow tires for winter then 75 is the best number for that. The tire is thin and cuts through snow to make contact with the road.
Changing the last number 15 requires you to change the rims. That number is the diameter of the rim and there really isn't much reason to change them unless you are customizing your car.
Price comes into play more than brand name. You don't need that $250 super sticky tire for normal every day driving which you can do just as well on a plain jane $125 tire.The sticky tires use softer rubber and wear out quicker.
Finally, do not believe anyone who tells you that all season tires are suitable for snow and ice. They work better than summer tires if you get caught in a freak storm, but they aren't suitable for everyday winter driving. If you live in an area where there is a considerable amount of ice on the roads throughout the winter you should seriously consider getting you tires studded for improved stability, handling and stopping. Hope this helps.

My car has been telling me to service my tire monitor system


The service tire monitor warning can come on for many reasons. A sensor may have gone bad, may have been broken if a tire was changed recently, the car needs an updated module and antenna. The system woiuld need to be looked at by a technician.

Is snow tire better than all season tire in winter?


Snow tires are better for Winter But, Change them back out for Spring or they will not last very long on Regular Asphalt. They are made from a Softer Rubber than all Season Tires. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.

Tire pressure monitoring system


Don't know that much about these but depending on where you bought ur tires they might service them for free, I know places like big o and discount both service tires for free. My guess would be that the batteries just need changed since they're supposed to last ten years and the car is 11 yrs old.

Tire pressure monitor system


There is no way to disconect the system that I know of. Plus that would be illegal if it was possible. It may be possible to put you sensors in the new rims (if they fit) then you would have to take it to the shop and have them relearned. Sorry

Tire pressure monitor


32 psiis actually low for a 3500. I have a 1500 silverado that runs 44 psi cold. The tire inflation monitor , monitors inflated cirunference. Sooooo, If it isn'nt round enough, it will let you know. Driving warms up both the air and the tire,off course changing everything again. Pressure is up and tire is bigger. Ask me not how it can tell what is going on with the tire sitting still. I'm only on page 9,000, the answer is here somewher. :-) Well good luck. I do know the above is accurate._Ned_
