The light means that there is still a problem with the tire system, if there is a spare make sure to check that. If the light is still on after setting all tire pressures then there is most likely one of your tire pressure sensors bad which is the valve stem if equipped. What you can try is pump all tire pressures up to about 45 psi, then qiuckly let the air out one tire at a time. This kinda wakes up the system. If this doesn't solve it then you will have to take it to the dealer.

I lost the owner's manual of 2008 scion tc. This flower vase shape light with exclamatioin point in the middle just came on. What does it mean?

It sounds like the tire pressure monitor warning light. Does the light look like this?
c64c8b9.jpgCheck and adjust the pressure in all the tires (most Toyotas even monitor the spare tire pressure so check that also). If you find one tire with significantly lower air pressure then the rest bring the car to a repair shop to have them find and repair the leak. Once the air in the tires are correct the light will go off.

Tire pressure light comes on

You shouldn't be setting the tire pressure to the max inflation pressure listed on the sidewall, that will likely result in uneven tire wear with the center of the tire wearing out prematurely. You should set the pressures according to the listings in the door jam. Most likely 32-34psi. Also, have you checked the spare tire? Some systems monitor and will illuminate the TPMS light if the spare tire pressure isn't within an acceptable range. The spare is often overlooked when checking tire pressures because of a TPMS indicator.

Tire presure light stays on psi is 32 all tires 2006 scion tc site inspection reveals no nails or cuts pressure is maintained

Hello! You're problem could likely be a problem with the TPMS, or (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) - sensor. There is one in each wheel, and it's recommended that with any tire changes that they be rebuilt or replaced. I'm not sure if you've reset the tire pressure switch or not, but if you haven't and aren't familiar, the button is located inside the glove box. With the car on, press the button for 3-5 seconds and release. Turn the car off, and then back on and your light should be off.

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

What does the orange warning sign on the dashboard means?

There are several waring lights on your dash so lets see if i can guess: does it look like this ( ! ) with some squiggly lines under it? If it is that's your tire pressure warning light tell you that one or more of your tires is low on air. after you correct you tire pressure you'll find a tire pressure reset switch just inside you glove box push it for a few seconds and your warning light should get cleared.

Maint req light on

generally the Maint Req'd light will come on when it's time for an oil change. You DO NOT need to take it to a dealer to have the computer reset. Complete waste of time. I have a Tc myslef and take it to the local quick change place. Put your key in, turn it to accessory position while at the same time pushing and holding the trip reset button. Then start the car. It will reset and unless you have changed the factory settings will remain off until the next 5k miles and your next FACTORY recommended oil change. Also your tire pressure light may come on at some point as well. The reset button is in the glovebox. Once you start the car, push and hold that button to get the light to turn off. (you cant do this while driving) That light turns on if you air pressure is low, you have uneven wear in the tread of the tires and currently mine is on all the time....I put 4 brand new racing tires on (not factory tires) and the computer thinks things are out of wack but my pressure is fine and the tread is fine. I just live with that light being on.
