Reset the Low Pressure Tire Indicator Light

Need to reset 2008 Toyota Tacoma with the Low Pressure tire indicator light. Walmart does not have the tools to do it. There must be a simple way without paying through the nose for these little annoying items.

please advise.
thanks in advance. Toyota Sienna

Had flat tire, replaced with spare; then had 4 new tires installed, light still won't go out.

    How did this issue turn out?

  • Toyota Ed May 11, 2010

    I will be glad to provide assistance.

    There is no "reset" procedure for the Tire Pressure Warning System on an 08 Sienna. There are sensors in the rims that transmit a "Yes" or "No" signal to the TWPS computer. In other words, the sensors transmit that they are at the right inflation (yes), or they are not (no). Assuming that all 4 tires have the exact same amount, set with a worthwhile pressure gauge (not one of those fit-in-your-pocket things), the light goes out automatically. .

    If the tires are set properly, and the light stays ON, your tire guy has broken one or more of the sensors. The sensors are bout $192.00 each. Reset the tire pressures with a good gauges & see if that helps, if not, take it back to the tire shop & demand new sensors. there is nothing else that could cause this. Hope this helps, and thnaks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: Reset the Low Pressure Tire Indicator Light

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.

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.

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.
