Your gonna have to take it to the dealer,as long as all your tire pressures are good,and you drove it and the light still does not go out,the dealer has a scan tool just for the TPM and they can read each sensor and check for trouble codes,,,nice car by the way

Lexus tire pressure monitoring system


It would help to know what year and model your Lexus is to better assist you. Typically if you haven't done anything to the car or tires, it may be low on air if the message is "low tire", if message is "check system" or "service tpms" then it may be more involved like a bad tire sensor or other system malfunction. Let me know more info and we can go from there.

Installing Tire Pressure Monitoring in Older Wheels

I wanted to install the Hella TC-400 tire pressure monitoring system on a set of '80s vintage Alpina wheels to be used on my '72 2002tii. Older wheels are not necessarily suited for mounting the valve stems that incorporate tire pressure senders. The people at TireRack were very helpful and sent me a dead sender that I could use for a trial fitting. I mounted the valve/sender in the wheel and sent them photos showing the mounting angle etc. It all works fine! Please make sure your tire mounting person knows what they are doing and warn them that you have the senders mounted. See
Now I have a modern tire pressure system on a 38-year-old car!

How to reset 2011 toyota highlander low tire light

2011 Toyota Highlander. Had no luck finding the reset switch, HOWEVER, the warning indicator also includes the SPARE tire (there is a BT sensor in the valve stem which operators on a tiny battery which signals to the car as well). We had filled the 4 vehicle tires properly, and was still showing the tire pressure warning. Researched it and saw the SPARE is include with this monitoring system for the vehicle. Checked and filled the spare, the warning indicator turned off.

What kind of tire pressure sensors are on a 2000 olds alero and are they located inside the wheel?

{: ) The 2002 Oldsmobile uses the TIM system. Here is an overview of how it works:
The tire inflation monitoring (TIM) system detects the differences in tire rotation speeds that are caused by changes in tire pressure. The TIM may not alert the driver if the pressure in more than one tire is high or low. The TIM also may not operate properly if the spare tire is in use.
The TIM system can alert the driver when a large change in the pressure of one tire exists. The system only detects a low pressure condition while the vehicle is being driven.
The LOW TIRE PRESSURE indicator turns ON in the instrument cluster if the tire pressure in one tire becomes 12 psi (55 kPa) lower or higher than the other 3 tires and the ignition switch is in the ON position. The message does not appear if more than one tire is low or high, or if the system is not calibrated properly. The system does not inform the driver which tire is low. In order to clear this message, equalize the tire pressures in all 4 tires and perform the Tire Inflation Monitor Resetting. In addition, the indicator may come ON if a low voltage condition is present.

In other words, this is not like the TPM (Tire Pressure Monitoring) system that is being used in later model vehicles, wherein the TPM sensors are inside the wheel, integrated to the tire valve. The TPM sensors detect changes in tire pressure and temperature, and sends out radio signals to the RCDLR, to be decoded by the BCM and the instrument cluster.

I have a ttpms light on in my car. what does that mean?

If it is on steady it means you need to check the air pressure in your tires. If you open the drivers front door there will be a sticker that says what the tires are supposed to be inflated to. If one tire is low and the others are fine you have a leak and need to get the tire looked at for a repair.

If it is blinking it means there is a problem with the TPMS system and needs to be looked at by a shop that is capable of diagnosing this system.

TPMS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
