Cabin (tire) indicator light.


No, it will stay on cause the system is set up for tire pressure monitors. If you change to standard valve stems it wont be able to read tire pressure, therefore it thinks its low om air and the light stays on.

Service tyre preasure sensors


The tire pressure monitors are made in the valve stems. You will have to replace the valve stems then have the codes cleared at the shop. Most tire stores have the tool to reset the tire pressure monitors. It can be a little costly.

How to turn of tire lite that looks like an


Check your tire pressure, and adjust as necessary first.

Next, have you changed anything having to do with the rims/tires/valve stems? The valve stems mounted in your factory rims have a tire pressure monitoring sensor/transmitter mounted on the inside. The valve stem itself is the antenna for the transmitter. If you have had the valve stems, valve cores, or even the valve caps replaced, that can cause a fault in the system.

Also if you used a canned flat repair like 'Fix-A-Flat', that could be clogging the sensor. I don't recommend using fix-a-flat on tires with TPMS, but if you're in a jam, sometimes you have to.

If you had the tires changed, the shop has to be careful when mounting and dismounting the tires. The sensors are easy to damage with tire tools.

In order to reset the TPMS, there is a small button either in the glove compartment, or under the steering wheel. Turn the ignition to the 'on' position without starting the engine. Press and hold the button for approximately three seconds. The light will begin flashing. Release the button and wait at least 7 seconds for the system to relearn the sensors. Then turn the key to the 'off' position. Start the engine, and check that the light turns off after about a second.

If the light still stays on, you need to have the TPMS serviced by a qualified mechanic. This should be either a Toyota dealer, or a shop that uses the appropriate TPMS testing equipment.

Good luck, I hope this helped!

I have a 2007 nissian pathfinder 4wd an the tire valve stem broke off that has the sensor on it for low air pressure.how do i reset the computer after i replace the sensor


Normally the sensor will reset after a few miles of driving. If it doesn't, most reputable tire shops (probably including the one that is putting in the new valve stem) can reset the computer for a fee.

I have a 2007 RX400h. I replaced the tires with new ones, 235/60/18 and the alarm is still ON. ALL tires have the same pressure and I can not take it out.


Hi,
If all the pressures are the same and you have pressed the reset button under the dash by your right knee location on the drivers side.
There could be a problem with the pressure feed back signal from the valve stem on each tire.
The dealer will have a device to pick up the pressures from each tire.
He will be able to confirm if the system is all functioning correctly.
Let me know if you need more information. Good luck!

Hello vettechgirl2,
When you replace a tire on a vehicle equiped with a tire pressure sensor system, there are several things you need to be aware of. Hopefully the tire company was careful when changing the tire. The valve stem sensor is about $100.00+ to replace on most vehicles equiped with them. On newer vehicles the tires are filled with nitrogen to keep corrosion down on the sensor. When a tire is replaced the sensor system has to be reset a day or two after the replacement, this allows for breaking in of the new tire. All the tires should be checked for proper manufacturer inflation before resetting the system, including the spare if there is an inflated on on the car. Then the internal computer control can be reset. The owners manual should have instructions on how to reset the sensor program, there is usually a small button under the dash that is used for the reset. Once reset, your system should work as before the flat. If it doesn't stay reset, then the tire place didn't do the installation correctly damaging the sensor or the tire is loosing pressure. Check with your car dealer to see what the tires were originally filled with so you don't mix gases when equalizing the pressure. If your owners manual does not have the reset instructions the dealer may have to set it electronically. Regards, rcampsr

06 dts tire monitor reset button?


Programming TPM Sensors
1. Turn the ignition to ON.
2. Press the key fob lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for several seconds. The horn will chirp when the TPM
programming mode is activated. Important: If the TPM programming mode cannot be entered, check if the DIM is
configured with the correct RPO codes.
3. Starting with the Left Front Tire
4. Install the J 41760 over the left front valve stem. Magnets from Radio Shack, P/N 64-1888 (at $2.99), will also work.
They're too small to go over the valve stem cap, but once you remove it they slip over the valve stem just fine
instead of the GM tool.
5. The horn will sound, indicating the Left Front TPM sensor is programmed. Important: If the horn does not sound after
15 seconds, remove then reinstall the TPM sensor programming tool or place the magnet alongside the valve stem.
6. When the horn sounds, proceed to program the next TPM sensor in the following order:
o Right Front Tire
o Right Rear Tire
o Left Rear Tire
7. After the Left Rear sensor is programmed, the horn will sound twice to indicate programming is complete.
Programming Cancellation
1. The programming mode will be canceled if any of the following conditions are met:
o The ignition is turned OFF.
o All four sensors have been programmed.
o The TPM system has been in the program mode for longer than 5 minutes and no sensors have been learned.
2. If more then one minute has passed before the next sensor is programmed, all previously stored codes are
erased from the receiver's memory.
after driving around for a few blocks, if the pressure does not match the tire pressure for each wheel, then the sensor is bad.

What may have happened is that one of the tire pressure sensors was damaged, or the system was not reset.
The tire presure sensors use radio frequency to tell the module the tires presure and location. Replacing tires can sometimes damage them. The sensor is part of the valve stem. Use the driver info buttons to go to the tire pressure / location info. If you see " -- ", then the system cannot read the tires. Tech JK
