Hold down the reset for a few seconds until the light goes out. If this does not work, repeat.

SOURCE: 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?

SOURCE: Tire pressure light is on

You cannot reset them,Make sure that you check the pressures in the tires. The Infiniti Tire Pressure Monitoring System is designed to trip the warning light anytime the pressure in any of the tires drops below 29 psi. At 29 psi it really won't look like the tires are low. You could have one tire at 29 or 28 causing the light to stay on all the time. Check your pressures, set at 34 or 35 to be safe, or whatever pressure the tire is recommended to be. Not all infiniti vehicles with TPMS have the display that shows the pressure in each tire. If the pressures are above 29 psi, Then there could be an issue with one or more of the sensors. If you have the tires replaced you will have to have the sensors relearned at the dealer. Tire rotations do not require the same.

SOURCE: the check tire pressure light and ABS auto

The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You should be able to re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

What's wrong with my 2011 Ford Escape?


There is something wrong or those indicators would not light up. You need the system scanned to see what might be going on. Also this may be a problem Ford is aware of and they have published a technical bulletin on it or a possible recall., contact the dealer for more info..

Tire pressure monitor fault


Tire pressure sensors are just that, sensitive. If all your tire have the proper pressure and you still are seeing the sensor light and it comes back on after resetting it then the computer sensor monitor is at fault. Unless you can reset your cars' computer you will probably be stuck with going to the dealer for service. Call various other reputable service centers that have certified mechanics before turning out the big green at a FORD dealership though.

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.

Tire Monitor & Sensor Fault


The sensors are pretty dependable. You have to make sure that the tire pressures are on the money. Check the door jam for the correct front and rear pressures. Don't go by the tire, go by the door jam or owners manual. At times when the outside temperature changes a lot it can cause the light to come on.
You may want to check the tires for defects, punctures, or a bubble/s.

Abs light come on and 4wd light flashes


check your front wheel bearings by jacking up the front end of your vehicle and trying to wiggle the tire at the top and bottom of the tire. If the tire seems to be jiggling a little bit at the hub; not the suspension or steering, your wheel bearing needs to be replaced. If it gets really bad you can actually see the wheel inverted or the top of the tire leaning towards the inside from the front of the vehicle.

when your wheel bearings go the sensor in the bearing goes off and the abs light comes on.

Good Luck

Tire pressure sensor or gauge


Have you checked tire pressure? It will come on if your tire pressure is just a few pounds low.
