Same thing happened to my 2006 T&C when the weather turned cold. I found that the recommended tire pressure was 36 lbs/sq. in. When I inflated all 4 tires to this pressure, the light went out after driving a few miles.

I have a orange ! light on in my car. I recently popped my tire and have a spare...is this is problem? 2011 Hyundai Tuscon


Its probably been triggered by the absence of the TPMS(tire pressure monitoring sensor) on the spare u have on. With d specified tire complete with the TPMS the light should be easily erased.

Had a flat, put spare on,tire light on dash is still on,Is this because the spare is not a full size tire?


Hi,If your Hyundia is at least a 2007 or above it most likely has a TPMS(Tire Pressure Monitoring System) and a low tire lite on the dash. The spare tires don't have a TPMS sensor in them. Have your original tire repaired of the flat,when you put the stock wheel and tire back on the car at a proper inflation of at least 32-35psi, the low tire pressure lite should go out soon after.

I just had new tires put on my 08 maxima and the tire pressure light will not go out. How many miles do i need to drive it for it to go out?


the light should go out in few miles. make sure that you have 36psi of pressure in all 4 tires. if you don't, add air to 36 psi and drive the car. If you do have 36psi s in all 4 tires, tahn the place that put your tires on may have broke the sensor. start with checking air pressure and making sure that you have 36psi in all 4 tires.

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.

I HAVE A 2008 CHEVY COBALT, THE CHECK TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT IS STAYING ON. HOW DO I GET IT SHUT OFF?


All you should need to do is check and set all tire pressures and make sure to check the spare also, after all tires are set with air you then drive a few blocks and the light should reset if the light does not reset then you will need to find out which wheel has a bad air pressure sensor, this is done with a tool that is put on the valve stem or a scan tool to see which tire is showing the wrong pressure, hope this helps.

I just came back from Toyota with the same problem!


There are two different types of TPMS systems on Highlanders. One using battery powered sensors in the wheels, and one using ABS monitoring.
Some models actually use both systems as well.
For the record, a 2005 should only have the ABS monitoring TPMS system, not sensors.

If you have a reset button under your steering column, you have the ABS monitoring system.
If your valve stems are metal, you also have the sensor based system.
If your valve stems are rubber, you do not have the sensor system, and as such the spare is not monitored.

A sensor fault (dead battery, erroneous reading, etc) on the sensor system will result in a FLASHING TPMS light, not just lit.

A lit TPMS light on either system indicates a low pressure problem.

-

The absolute biggest issue I have seen with the reset button system causing recurring lights is improper reset technique.
When you reset your tire pressure, you need to run the reset button TWO times times to clear the system and not cause a recurrence in the next day or so.

The reason is this:
When your light comes on, indicating a low tire, you go fill all your tires up.
Then you push the reset button, making the light go out......this tells the system "Tires are aired up to whatever the old pressure was, turn the light out!." If they are not aired up exactly as whatever value they were set to XX days/months/however long ago when it was reset right, you have a problem!

Now you should push the button a SECOND time, the light will come on, flash several times then go out... This tells the system "OK, from now on, THIS is the correct pressure to look for, not the old pressure!"

It will now use that value as the correct "pressure" (ABS rolling diameter) to verify tire pressure condition.

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.

Low tire pressure light won't stay off after proper reset.


Some newer Toyota vehicles have a sensor in the spare tire. Tires loose air over time naturally. I would check out the spare.
When did this TPS light start coming on?
Have you had new tires put on, or had a flat repair done before the light?
