We have this same problem everytime we have our tires rotated. There is a way that you reset the light similar to resetting the check engine light. Toyota is very stengy about this info. I am not sure what it is that you have to do but once I figure it out I will post it here.

I have Toyota with TPMS so I have some experience... things that come to mind off-hand are:
- Low tire pressure
- Pressure sensor damaged during replacement of tires

Check the pressure on the tires.... if the pressure is good,then likely one or more of the pressure sensors were damaged by the shop who installed the tires, have them diagnose and replace it/them (at their expense!). Good luck.

I Have a Toyota Sienna LE 2006 with tires 215/65/R16, can I replace them with tires 225/65/r16?


A cheaper route and one that would keep your speedometer more accurate would be 215/70R/16. Slightly taller, less footprint, but more accurate and true to your actual speed.

Original tire size is 215/65r16 can i replace this with a tire size of 235/65r16, this is for toyota sienna sienna ce 2004


You can do this but i do not recommend it because the tire diameter is much bigger, this throws off the speedo reading and affects the transmission operation. Contact the Tirerack.com and see what tire sizes you can use that might be bigger (wider tread foot print) but with the same diameter.

My Totota Venza's tire pressure light keep coming on very 6 weeks after driving it for a year. Only have 10K miles after 1 1/2 years. I have taken it back to dealer three times and will be a fourth...


No car defect - there is a normal amount of wear on your tires after 10K miles, and
one (or more) of the tires are starting to leak air just a little bit - which after 1.5 years and
10K miles is entirely expected.
What's happening is that the TPMS (Tire Pressure Management System) sensors (one in each tire)
are sending info to the car's computer telling it that there is low air in at least one tire.
To the TPMS, "low air" means a drop in air pressure of just a few percent (set by the
manufacturer). A drop in pressure in just one tire will light the dashboard light.
The spare (temporary) tire is not monitored by the TPMS, and typically carries a pressure
of 60 PSI.
According to http://www.safercar.gov (NHTSA), a normal tire will lose as much as 1.5 PSI
per month as air escapes the tire and rim naturally.
The 2009 Toyota Venza utilizes the "direct" TPMS system (as opposed to the indirect), which is
explained by the Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TPMS

If you or dealer suspect the TPMS sensor(s) in one or more tires, they can be purchased on the aftermarket from sites like www.rockauto.com, www.carpartsdiscount.com, et.al. After the new TPMS sensor(s) are installed,
you (or your garage),must re-teach the TPMS system its new sensors using the following procedure: (1) let the car sit stationary on its wheels (not lifted) for at least 20 minutes, then
test drive the car for at least 10 minutes at a continuous speed of 15 MPH or greater. During the
test drive, the TPMS dashboard light should go out.

How do I reset my low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 toyota tundra.


There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset.
There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
If that doesn't work, have them check the technical service bulletins.

Everyone gets confused on this. I see it all the time. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

The Highlander uses an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System versus Direct type.

There is NO transponder in the air valve. The H/L uses a plain tire old valve. Thus, there is no PSI reading done by this Indirect Type System.
It uses the ABS speed sensors to calculate differences of tire rotational speed among the Four rolling tires(the Spare IS NOT included).
When the spare tire is put on, say when yu get a flat tire, the TPMS button must be pressed. (Recalibrated)

Direct Type TPMS costs more for Toyota and only puts it on select models. i.e. the Land Cruiser...
But for Toyota, the Indirect System meets DOT's TPMS mandated minimum Requirements for 2007 vehicles.

The Direct type system uses a transponder/PSI reader type Air Valve on each tire(including the Spare). Each of the 5 tires send a reading of the PSI to the reciever in the Vehicles TPMS ECU.
It has a small battery and is self powered. Battery must be replaced when yu replace your tires. It must be carefully mounted. Each tire has it's owner frequency channel and ID. for it to be recognized by the ECU.
This system is more precise. But has it's own set problems as a result.

It is the original design TPMS going back to the 1980's introduced with the Corvette and the Runflat Tire option.

Tire trouble light has been on since I had the tires rotated, but there is no problem with the air pressure. Light stays on even though tire pressure is fine.


after rotating tires equipped with tpms, a relearn must be performed so the sensors know where they are. a tpms reprogrammer is required for this.

Original tire size is 215/65R16 can I replace this with a tire size of 225/65R16 ? This is for a 2006 Toyota Sienna.


Yes. The van will sit a little higher and you will pick up 2 or 3 mph. There is a slight chance that the tires will rub when you cut the wheel sharply. That's about it. Hope this helps.

I just had new tires put on my 2006 Toyota Corrola and the tire pressure indicator light keeps coming on. Is that normal?


no its not normal. sometimes the sensors can be damaged if tires are not mounted correctly. Also they (the tire place) should have retrained the sensor locations to the TPMS unit in the vehicle. take it back and tell them why your back and have them use a TPMS scan tool( tire pressure monitor system) and check the tire sensors. and do not forget the spare as some cars have a sensor in the spare tire also.

Tire pressure light is on even though all tires are inflated prop


You can reset the TPMS system on your Toyota Highlander. There are instructions in the owner's manual on how to do so. However, resetting the system without checking the cold-air inflation of the tires is not necessarily solving the problem. The recommended tire pressure inflation sticker is located on the driver-side door frame. On the Highlander, it calls for 30 pounds per square inch (psi) of tire pressure per tire, including the full-sized spare. If the Highlander had a donut spare tire, it will not have a TPMS sensor and subsequently will not effect the TPMS system one way or the other. To reset the TPMS system in the Highlander, there is a reset button under the driver-side dashboard that needs to be held for a period of time (a few seconds) while the ignition key is in the "key-on/engine-off" mode. The TPMS warning light will blink rapidly for a few more seconds, and the system will reset itself. Refer to the manual for the exact procedure. If the TPMS warning light reoccurs, have the system or tires checked by a professional. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help.
