Tpms light stays on

My tpms (tire pressure) light came on this winter, so I filled the tires to the proper psi, but the light won't go off. Is there a brake pedal/ign. combination a la Chevy to get it to turn off?

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.

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!

Why TPMS light stays on in my CRV


After checking and adjusting the tire pressures, The vehicle must be driven at speeds above 28 Mph (45 km/h) for approximately 20 minutes for the TPMS to receive the updated information from the tire pressure sensors in the tires. It will then reset itself.

If you have driven the vehicle, and the indicator will still not go off, then you need to take your car in for service so the malfunction in the TPMS system can be properly diagnosed.

Tpms light on, dic indicated low tp fr, inflated to proper pressure,tpms stays on, dic wont update


TPMS - TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING LIGHT
NOTE: Tire pressure rises and falls depending on heat caused by vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. If outside temperature is low, the air inside the tire may cool, causing a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

When the tire pressure warning light comes on, immediately check the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified pressure. Make sure the warning light goes off. If the warning light stays on or flashes, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

All you have to do to reset the TPMS light is make sure all your tires are set around 35-38 psi then drive it a a couple miles and the light will turn off. If it is blinking then you have a sensor issue and you will have to take it to the dealer. The tire pressure warning light is yellow not red."Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale. When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow"

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.

TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT STAYING ON


You either have low tire pressure in a tire
A bad tire pressure sensor in a wheel
Or just need to reset the TPMS,if you rotated your tires.

Go to a shop with a TPMS tool or scanner with TPMS software, and have it reset.

TPMS light will not go off. Tires were just


Check the owner's manual for directions on how to reset the TPMS. You may have to deflate to a certain pressure before filling to proper pressure. There may also be a tire learning mode tied into the odometer's trip meter button. Hope this helps.
