Tire pressure warning light goes on when tire pressure is ok

I have a 2004 Toyota Highlander and the tire pressure warning light goes on even though all tires are at 30 psi. If I have a full size spare, do I need to check it also. If the spare does not matter are there any solutions.

    When do you check your tires pressure? The pressure will change with heat. When it's cold in the morning they be down, but afternoon they be fine at that point or after you drive somewhere.

If your tire pressures are all set to what they are supposed to be set at, you need to re-calibrate your tire sensors. There is a button that you must hold down for 30 seconds to re-calibrate the tires. This button is located just to the right of the parking-brake. After pressing the button for 30 seconds, the light on your dash should flash several times. Hope this helps.

How do I reset the low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 highlander


Once ALL tires have the proper amount of air pressure in them the computer will reset the light. This may take as long as a couple of days (depending on how long you drive the car). Some take as long as 30 minutes of continuous driving to reset.

However, you need to be sure that ALL tires are properly inflated, EVEN THE FULL-SIZED SPARE, if you have a full-sized spare tire.

Why does tire light stay on 2011 Toyota?


Reset the Tire pressure monitoring system light. The reset button is located under the steering side under the finish panel. You have to bend down to see the button.
Operate the tire pressure warning system reset switch only after the inflation pressures of all 4 tires have been adjusted on the vehicle.
To initialize the system, press and hold the tire pressure warning system reset switch for 3 seconds or longer with the power switch turned IG-ON

2004 4 runner: Low tire pressure warning light is on, even though there is no tire pressure issue. Is this a sensor problem? or maybe the light is not working?


the senors tell you if the tire is low or even if the tire is not low if the tires are off a couple pounds from each other then the light will come on.

Maintenence required light and tire pressure lights will not go off after oil change and tire rotation on my Toyota Highlander. How do I turn them off?


The maintenance light needs to be reset manually. See my Tips and Tricks on this website for additional information on how to reset it.

You should also check your spare tire for proper inflation. It will set the tire pressure light, as the spare is monitored also. If all 5 tires are OK, you may have a malfunctioning tire pressure sensor. If the tires have been changed recently, people with older tire machines have been known to break the sensors regularly, by mistake.

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.

2004 toyota sienna warning lights


That symbol is the low tire pressure light. You have a tire that is right at the minimum threshold. The light goes off as the tire temperature rises, and, as the temp rises, the internal air pressure also rises slightly. Just check the tires with a good pressure gauge, inflate them to the specs printed on the tag inside your driver's side door, and you will be just fine.

Check the spare tire...The spare tire is also checked by the tire pressure warning system. Once the spare is inflated to the proper pressure, the light will go out.

08 Highlander Indicator light


The icon that you are referring to is the "tire pressure warning" light. This indicates that one (or more) of your tire pressures is below the specified inflation pressure. Note that the SPARE tire pressure is also checked. Best advice: Get a real good tire pressure gauge, and reset all of the tire pressures to specification, which is marked on a sticker on the driver side door opening. Once the pressures are set to specs, the light will go out automatically. This should help you out. Thanks for choosing FixYa.
The graciousness of a FixYa rating would be most appreciated!
