Your front left tire pressure sensor may be defective or broken. If you have had that tire changed recently, the technician may have inadvertently damaged it with the tire iron. It happened to me. I was quoted $250. to replace the sensor by the Toyota service department. I haven't found a way to disconnect the blinking light - so I let it blink.

How do I reset TPMS light focus 14


Use this if you're installing winter wheels/tires that have sensors already installed, or even if you are just doing a tire rotation. Not sure if this has been posted before. I tried searching but didn't see it posted anywhere. No need to go and buy the TPMS learning tool.

1) Make sure your tiresare inflated to the recommended psi. Mine is 40psi.

2) Turn ignition to the on position. If you have a push button start, push the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

3) Push the hazard light button 6 times. The horn should honk and you should see "Train left front tire" in the LCD display between the tach and speedo.

4) Release air pressure in the front left tireuntil you hear the horn honk. The LCD display should now read "Train right front tire".

5) Release air pressure in the right front tire until you hear the horn honk.

6) Repeat for the the right rear tire, and then the left rear tire.

7) You should now see "Training Complete" in the LCD display.

8) Fill your tiresback up to the recommended pressure.

Enjoy!

Tire pressure is correct but tps indicate a low pressure in one tire. service engine light comes on after a long drive and then goes off after a while.


Lets start with the tps light, make sure to check the tire pressure in the spare also as some car makers have a sensor on the spare also, after you sett all the tire pressures the light should go off after a small drive if not then i would reset the tps system,to reset the system you will first need to see if there is a sensor in the spare, the valve stem will be a regular rubber stem, this means no sensor or if it has the metal stem with the nut then it has a sensor but i will say it does not as i looked it up, the first step is to turn ignition on without starting the engine, so turn key until dah lights lite up this will be right before the start mode next push and hold the lock and unlock button on the remote, you will hear the horn chirp this means you are in program mode next you will start at the front left tire start to release air until the horn chrips after the horn chirps move to rt front tire and let air out until you hear the horn chirp you will continue to rt rear and let air out until horn chirp and last is left rear at the left rear the horn will double chirp this meand program is done turn key off. now set all tire to correct pressure and drive, light should go off, make sure to have all valve caps off as it gives you a total of 5 mins to complete the program but once key is off you have plenty of time, during the program mode if you are letting air out and the horn doesnt chirp then that tire has a bad sensor, you will need to let out at least 10lbs for the computer to pick up a change in the sensor, if the tire is flat from letting air out and the horn doesnt chirp then that sensor is bad, hope this helps, have a good day. note make sure you have an air pump or do this at an air pump as you will need to reset tire pressure .

A yellow light just came on on my 2008 Impala. Its a circle with an exclamation mark. What does it mean?


Tire pressure monitoring system. Start by checking your tire pressure and set to what the sticker on the drivers side door frame indicates. If this does not turn the light off you will have to re-learn the sensors to the vehicle. This is done by:
reset the tire pressure monitoring system, to do so, you need to get your key fob, and put your ignition key in the ignition, turn it to the accesories position, and simultaneously press the lock and unlock buttons on the key fob. hold them until the car honks the horn.

then take something to let out air in the tires, you need to start with the left front then go to the right front, then the right rear, then the left rear.

start at the left front, drop the pressure in the tire until the horn beeps, -usually takes 8 seconds or so. then repeat on the other tires in the order above.

After you finish with the final tire, the horn will honk again, then you know your done. usually honks 2 times.

and then you can turn the key off, and set your tire pressures.

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

    How do i reset the tir sensor? I tried to reset by using the check mark. i do not have a service manuel. I have waited till the horn re


    you have put your vehicle in learn mode. there is a special tool to relearn tire positons. take vehicle to a dealership and have tire pressures corrected and tire pressure sensors relearned. your tire pressure info. is on your drives door, 07 tahoe should be at 30psi .you can try pushing check and wait for honk, then let air out of left front tire until you hear a honk, then right front, then right rear, then left rear. by then your sensors will be learned but you will have four flat tires, it'll be easier to have someone reprogram using tool.

    2003 Cadillac seville sts TPMS reset


    From 2005 STS Owners manual:
    Each TPM sensor has a unique identification code. Any
    time you replace one or more of the TPM sensors,
    the identification codes will need to be matched to the
    new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is
    matched, to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the
    tire’s air pressure. The sensors are matched, to the
    tire/wheel positions, in the following order: left front (LF),
    right front (RF), right rear (RR), and left rear (LR).
    You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel
    position, and five minutes overall, to match all four
    tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute,
    to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five
    minutes to match all four tire/wheel positions the
    matching process stops and you will need to start over.
    The TPM matching process is outlined below:
    1. Set the parking brake.
    2. Press the push-button ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
    3. Using the Keyless Access transmitter, lock and
    unlock the vehicle’s doors.
    4. Press the lock and unlock buttons, at the same
    time, on the Keyless Access transmitter. A single
    horn chirp will sound, indicating that the TPM
    system is ready, and the sensor matching process
    can begin.
    5. Start with the left (driver’s side) front tire.
    6. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem.
    Activate the TPM sensor by increasing or
    decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds,
    or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp,
    which may take up to 30 seconds, confirms that the
    sensor identification code has been matched to
    this tire position. To decrease the tire’s air-pressure
    use the pointy end of the valve cap, a pencil-style
    air pressure gage or a key.
    7. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) front tire,
    and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    8. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) rear tire,
    and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    9. Proceed to the left (driver’s side) rear tire, and
    repeat the procedure in Step 6.
    10. After hearing the confirming double horn chirp, for
    the left rear tire, exit the matching process by
    turning the ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
    11. Set all four tires to the recommended air
    pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading
    information label.
    12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.
