I have a 2009 dodge caliber and my security light keeps blinking on and off with the tire pressure light any ideas on why ???

check the tire pressure on each tire, if one is lower it will cause issues..they use nitrogen now to inflate tires at the dealer because nitrogen doesnt react to outside air pressures like service station air does..(tire will look low even tho pressure is good)..check the lowest pressure tire for wounds to sidewall or roadtread by spraying liqiud soad (like windex) on it and look for bubbles anywhere..plug or replace the tire if a leak is found..good luck

My ( ! ) light stays on

Hi there:
Is your TPMS Warning Light On? The Tire Pressure Monitor System monitors the inflation pressure of the tires on your vehicle. If the pressure inside any tire drops 25 percent or more below its recommended inflation pressure, the warning light comes on to alert you.

Should you stop driving and check your tires immediately? It would probably be wise to find a safe place to stop or pull over so you can check the tires. You may just have a low tire that has been slowly seeping air over a period of time. Or, you may have a tire that is going flat. The TPMS Warning Light only tells you the pressure is low in one of the tires, not how fast the tire is losing pressure.

Important: Check the pressure in ALL of your tires, not just the one that triggered the TPMS Warning Light. Why? Because you may have other tires that are also low, but not low enough to trigger the warning light.
If you discover that one or more tires are low, add air to bring them back up to the recommended inflation pressure for your vehicle. You can find this information on a decal which may be mounted in a door pillar, the glovebox, or in your owners manual (which you should carry in your glove box).


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.

The tire monitor system light is on, how do u reset it?

First check to make sure all of your tires are at the right pressure. You probably have a low tire. Too much pressure will turn that light on too but in most cases its not enough air in the tire. Once they are all at the proper pressure if the light doesn't go off take it for a drive it usually only needs a few blocks at city speeds to turn it off and if that still doesn't work check your manual it will be in there.

Looks like horseshoe with exclamation point

That usually means you have a tire or tires with low air pressure. Check the air pressure in all of your tires and make sure that they are at no more than the maximum psi rated on the sidewall of each tire. If the car has not been driven for an extended period of time, us the cold psi as your max. If the car has been driven for an hour or more, use the hot psi number. It it very important to understand these numbers because as the air heats up inside the tire, it expands increasing the pressure and as it cools down, it contracts to a lower pressure. Tires slowly lose air pressure over time which is normal but it can get down low enough to trigger the sensor and the light even the tire may be fine. Your tires should be within + or - 1 to 2 psi of each other and at or near the rated tire psi. If any or all are lower than the others, you should have them checked for damage or a puncture by a nail, screw, etc. A faulty sensor can also set the warning light which should be replaced and calibrated by a certified technician.

The tire pressure guage is on. All tires have been checked and filled with air. Now the light won't go out. How do I reset it?

Some pressure monitor systems won't reset until the car has been driven for a distance at highway speeds.

If the sensor continues to stay on, then you may have a faulty sensor. It will be tricky to diagnose which tire has the faulty sensor though

Lexus ls430 2004 tire pressure indicator

You probably didn't need new tires unless you had some miles on it. Remember that the spare tire also has a pressure monitor as well. It most likely is causing the low tire pressure light on the dash and only needs to be inflated back to what ever your other tires are set to. I had the same problem on my RX and took it back to the dealership where they told me since the spare is exposed to the same elements (it's under the back of the RX - you have to use the tire iron to let the spare down), it will inevidably lose air.

Good luck.
