There was apparently an error with the way the cars computer was reading the TPMS sensors. You might be able to reset it with VAG-COM but more than likely it will require a trip to the dealer.

These Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems are all worthless and nothing more than a waste of peoples money due to the fact that they are simply just more that can break on cars these days. Mostly every car after 2005 has to have them thanks to Al Gore and the theory that if our tires are inflated we burn less gas, and then the planet is greener. This is true and not so true because now people are just driving to the dealer more. Now the valve stems for these things are twice as much as regular valve stems and the sensors are usually about $80. When I get my car, I'm taking the damn things out and trying to get the light disabled and if it won't go out, I'll just laugh at it every time it comes on.All you need is a six dollar tire gauge and to check your tires once a month or even once every two months. These systems are nothing but trouble and should be optional.

Hope this helped.

2007 Nissan Frontier TPMS


tpms sensors have small battery inside rim which last 5-7 years then tpms all need to be replaced with new ones could cost between $50-$100 per wheel as tires have to be opened to access tpms.

Steering wheel light is on after battery went dead (along with traction control).


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

My Totota Venza's tire pressure light keep coming on very 6 weeks after driving it for a year. Only have 10K miles after 1 1/2 years. I have taken it back to dealer three times and will be a fourth...


No car defect - there is a normal amount of wear on your tires after 10K miles, and
one (or more) of the tires are starting to leak air just a little bit - which after 1.5 years and
10K miles is entirely expected.
What's happening is that the TPMS (Tire Pressure Management System) sensors (one in each tire)
are sending info to the car's computer telling it that there is low air in at least one tire.
To the TPMS, "low air" means a drop in air pressure of just a few percent (set by the
manufacturer). A drop in pressure in just one tire will light the dashboard light.
The spare (temporary) tire is not monitored by the TPMS, and typically carries a pressure
of 60 PSI.
According to http://www.safercar.gov (NHTSA), a normal tire will lose as much as 1.5 PSI
per month as air escapes the tire and rim naturally.
The 2009 Toyota Venza utilizes the "direct" TPMS system (as opposed to the indirect), which is
explained by the Wikipedia article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TPMS

If you or dealer suspect the TPMS sensor(s) in one or more tires, they can be purchased on the aftermarket from sites like www.rockauto.com, www.carpartsdiscount.com, et.al. After the new TPMS sensor(s) are installed,
you (or your garage),must re-teach the TPMS system its new sensors using the following procedure: (1) let the car sit stationary on its wheels (not lifted) for at least 20 minutes, then
test drive the car for at least 10 minutes at a continuous speed of 15 MPH or greater. During the
test drive, the TPMS dashboard light should go out.

How I reset oil pressure light on my 2009 Tiguan


You don't, it is under warranty, take it to a dealer before you fry the engine. Either the pressure sensor or the pump is bad, either way needs immediate pro attention.

What does it mean when the low tire pressure light on a 2009 Jetta blinks? (It is not low tire pressure, Ive tried refilling the tires)


Make sure you refill the tires with the specific amount of air and if it doesnt make the light go away you got a bad tire pressure sensor.

On my 2009 Camry 4 cylinder automatic, the tire pressure light came on recently and stays on, no blinking. The manual shows a reset switch on the side of the dash next to the glove box, but there is no...


I found this picture in database, did you look in glove box? I have a tech manual for tpms, for Toyota it just says lower dash for reset switch. For the picture, there is no orientation, you can't really tell anything. The info does say all Toyota with tpms has reset button. Sorry, I'm not sure where it is located or if there is one? I can only go by what the database says.

BMW Mini 2005 (Japan) RDA /TPMS warning light lit constantly


check all tire pressures if all are ok, I think you hold in the button until it resets, the button is down between the front seats. Its in a bad place because the button can stick.

A dash lite on my 2009 hyundai sonata came on while was driving. if you can tell me what it is TPMS


stands for Tire Pressure Monitor System= TPMS. check all tire pressures (when cold if possible) and adjust them according to the tire pressure sticker on the drivers door jamb,glove box,another door jamb or center console compartment(inside).even check the spare tire pressure. the lite comes on to tell you that either 1 or more tires is considerably lower or higher in pressure than the rest. once u adjust the pressures correctly,look in the owners manual as to how to reset/shut off the light. on alot of cars if u drive the car for awhile the light will reset and go off .hope this helps.
