My wifes Pontiac Grand Prix does the same thing. It is a preset thing. Every x amount of miles it comes on. On her car there is a menu under the screen that you go into to reset it. This is not for sure but every time hers comes on the psi is right. I am not a mechanic so you might also look for other causes aswell.

How do I reset the low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 highlander


Once ALL tires have the proper amount of air pressure in them the computer will reset the light. This may take as long as a couple of days (depending on how long you drive the car). Some take as long as 30 minutes of continuous driving to reset.

However, you need to be sure that ALL tires are properly inflated, EVEN THE FULL-SIZED SPARE, if you have a full-sized spare tire.

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.

My sons' 08 jetta is in Chicago. (very cold there) His low tire pressure light on the dashboard lit up. what should he do?


Hello: Check tire pressure, Proper pressure should be on a label on the driver door and door frame. If tires are low, air them up to spec's. If only one tire is low you should check it for a puncture.

I've had my tire pressure checked numerous times, but I can't get the tire pressure light on my dashboard to go off.


I would find a shop that has a TPMS tool that can read the TPMS senor data. It is possible for one of the sensors to be sending a false low pressure reading.

That usually means you have a tire or tires with low air pressure. Check the air pressure in all of your tires and make sure that they are at no more than the maximum psi rated on the sidewall of each tire. If the car has not been driven for an extended period of time, us the cold psi as your max. If the car has been driven for an hour or more, use the hot psi number. It it very important to understand these numbers because as the air heats up inside the tire, it expands increasing the pressure and as it cools down, it contracts to a lower pressure. Tires slowly lose air pressure over time which is normal but it can get down low enough to trigger the sensor and the light even the tire may be fine. Your tires should be within + or - 1 to 2 psi of each other and at or near the rated tire psi. If any or all are lower than the others, you should have them checked for damage or a puncture by a nail, screw, etc. A faulty sensor can also set the warning light which should be replaced and calibrated by a certified technician.

That usually means that one or more of your tires has dropped below the level of air pressure that the manufacturer recommends. It is basically a low pressure warning light. This way you will know to find a place to check your tire pressures. Look on your tires sidewall and you will find a cold psi rating and a hot or warm psi rating. The tire pressures need to stay within those parameters in order for the light to not come on. As the tire warms from motion the air inside begins to expand and will read a higher pressure than if the tire is cold. Check your pressures and if any of the tires have a low pressure (below 30 psi) it should be inspected...........Or you may be leaving your emergency brake on. Pull up then push down to release a hand break lever and push all the way down and pull hard on the release lever for a foot brake. Another possibility is the car needs brake pads soon.

Sounds like the low tire pressure indicator. Check your tire pressure is correct in all four tires. This happens when the tempature outside starts to drop and so does the pressure in the tires. The recommended tire pressure should be listed on the inside of the driver's side door. Most tires are 32 psi cold. After the tires have been filled to proper pressure it may take 15 minutes for the light to shut off.

If the tire gets low enough to set a flat tire code, simply putting air in the tire won't clear the light. The dealer will have to clear the light for you. If you are really nice and tell the service advisor that you just need the light cleared they will likely do it for free.
