Check that all tire pressures are good. Including the spare tire. If the spare is low, it will also make the light come on.

See the specified tire pressures for your truck. their usually on the sides of the doorswhen you open the door. fill to propper pressure and that should automatically turn the indicator light off.

How do I reset my low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 toyota tundra.

There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset.
There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
If that doesn't work, have them check the technical service bulletins.

Everyone gets confused on this. I see it all the time. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

The Highlander uses an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System versus Direct type.

There is NO transponder in the air valve. The H/L uses a plain tire old valve. Thus, there is no PSI reading done by this Indirect Type System.
It uses the ABS speed sensors to calculate differences of tire rotational speed among the Four rolling tires(the Spare IS NOT included).
When the spare tire is put on, say when yu get a flat tire, the TPMS button must be pressed. (Recalibrated)

Direct Type TPMS costs more for Toyota and only puts it on select models. i.e. the Land Cruiser...
But for Toyota, the Indirect System meets DOT's TPMS mandated minimum Requirements for 2007 vehicles.

The Direct type system uses a transponder/PSI reader type Air Valve on each tire(including the Spare). Each of the 5 tires send a reading of the PSI to the reciever in the Vehicles TPMS ECU.
It has a small battery and is self powered. Battery must be replaced when yu replace your tires. It must be carefully mounted. Each tire has it's owner frequency channel and ID. for it to be recognized by the ECU.
This system is more precise. But has it's own set problems as a result.

It is the original design TPMS going back to the 1980's introduced with the Corvette and the Runflat Tire option.

How to reset tire pressure light 2006 toyota tundra

if this is a toyota 4runner, to reset your tire pressure light, all you need to do is drive your car for up to 10 minutes. On a 4runner the computer takes a reading from your TPMS every minute

*if this is not for a 4runner, there may be a different procedure to reset the sensors, but try this first
