Question about Lexus Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2008 ES 350. I am not close to my dealer. The tire pressure warning light is continually on. A tire dealer says the sensor is reacting to cold. My dealer says I can turn the light off with a switch that I cannot find in the car or in the manual. Thanks

SOURCE: low tire pressure warning light stays on

I brought my RX350 to the dealer for this problem before. They told me to inflate my tires to 36psi for winter time although the recommended pressure is 30 psi

SOURCE: switch off tire pressure warning light

From the manual: First find the reset button, located below the handbrake (emergency brake) lever. The button has an "exclamation mark in a tyre" symbol.

Make sure the pressures in all tyres are what you want them to be. 35psi all 'round is good for sporty driving.

Engine off. Turn ignition to the second position (ON) but don't start the engine.

Keep the re-set button pressed until the flat tyre indicator light on the dashboard COMES ON for several seconds.

Start the engine, and drive the car normally for several minutes. This will re-set the indicator to whatever pressures you have in the tyres. Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: how do i reset the tire pressure warning on a 2008 kia spectra

Your tire pressure is monitored by a device known as a TPMS sensor.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System is an integral part of your tire that tends to wear with age.

You need to take your vehicle to a reliable shop (I recommend Discount Tire) to have the TPMS sensor in the defective tire replaced. It's simple, and inexpensive.

I have used Discount Tire's services for almost 20 years, and have never been disappointed with their service.

Reset the tire pressure warning, same as you would any service issue. Insert key in ignition, hold wrench button and min button, then start engine.

SOURCE: 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.

2008 Lexus ES 350 low tire pressure warning light


1) go to a gas station with an air pump. Unless u have an inflator/compressor at home with the tireattachment

2) lower all 5 air pressures including the spare in the trunk to maybe about 28 PSI

3) now reset the TPMS (on the 07 there is a button to "calibrate" the TPMS and it is located under the dash. I presume it is the same on the 08.)

4) now bring the pressue back up to 30/32 or whatever it says on the door area


If this doesn't work, it is possible u have a defective TPMS
but my bet right now would be that someone "calibrated" the TPMS to the current tire pressure so the light is constantly on. It happened to me before when my daughter was messing around and hit that button.

Overactive tire pressure warning light on Honda FIt


the time when you check the tire pressure is before driving it or after is been driven? Reason I am asking this is because the air pressure after use checked would be different from cold start test. as the air after friction expanded and surely is more than the cold.check the tire pressure when cold and see if you are in the limit. If you are and still have the light come on then the problem you have possible are the tire valve sensor. Ask your dealer to check it .

My 2008 Envoy has the tire sensors that connect to the computer .. I recently had two tires replaced and was having no problems but since the weather has gotten colder when I first start the engine the...


Air pressure in the tires drops when it is cold (as much a 5 PSI), as you drive they heat up and that makes them fall within the correct pressure limits to turn off the low tire pressure warning. I suggest you get an accurate tire gauge and air your tires up to 32 PSI all around.

Just i b ought sonata 2008 car and the tpms light is on and i donot know why


Usually your RF (radio frequency) is messed up and sending invalid data to your computer. You will have to take your car to the dealer and have them reset it. Mine keeps coming on too. I keep asking them if there is a recall on this. Mine has come on 5-6 times. And if you live where it is cold, it will come on in the winter too. Don't worry about this one, when theh weather warms it will go off

The tire sensor would go off


Then thats what you need to do if you want the light off. Or you can start over and have a independant shop diagnose it, You might save a couple bucks this way but you'l loose because now you wasted twice the time. Or you can buy the part and install it yourself

Sensor light comes on(2008 Dodge Charger)


if the weather has changed and got cold your tire pressure would have dropped and would be lower. 2 options. 1 is fill ther tire to 30 psi and ride it out (remembering that when it warms up the tire pressure will automatically go up too)
2. Is to run a dry air such as nitrogen which does not change pressure in hot/cold weather.
Hope this helps
