THE LIGHT CAME ON BECUASE, IF U OPEN UP THE DRIVER SIDE DOOR, ON THE SIDE SHOULD BE THE SUGGESTED AIR AMOUNT FOR THE TIRES THAT NORMAL COME WITH THE CAR. THE RIMS YOU PUT ON, I GARUNTEE ARE PROBABLY LIKE TWO TO THREE SIZES BIGGER. SO THAT SENOSR IS SENSEING SOME THING IS WRONG. CAUSING THE LIGHT TO COME ON.

You could have a bad TPMS, have it tested.

### Tire Pressure Warning is on and yet the tires are full of air

Hello,
Maybe we can help.

Set your tire pressure to the recommended factory air pressures. (to find this look at the placard that is located in your driver side door jam.) After setting all 4 tires to the correct pressure drive normally. If the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) light doesn't turn off within 24 hours have the TPMS sensors checked at a local wheel and tire retailer or at the dealer. TPMS sensors have batteries in them that last an average of 5-7 years. If one of the batteries is dead it will trigger the system.

FYI, all of our stores can quickly troubleshoot your TPMS system and we stock most replacement TPMS sensors if you end up needing a new one. To find a local Discount Tire near you please visit www.discounttire.com/.

### 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.

### I bought two rims with TPMS capability and put winter tires on them for my 2007 Honda Civic. I can not clear the TPMS light. I would think I would have to tell the TPMS that I have new/different rims on...

The new sensor I.D.'s will need to be programmed into the TPMS system. You could spend a couple of thousand dollars to get the tools to do this or call around some local shop or the dealer to see what the get for this. Then next summer you get to reprogram them again.

The other option is to pull 2 TPMS sensors out of your summer tires and install them into your winter wheels. Use a TPMS service kit to seal them up. You won't need to reprogram anything if you go this route.

The third option is not to worry about it. The old fashioned way of doing things was to check your tires every couple weeks for proper inflation. If you are in tune with the way your vehicle handles than you should be able to notice the change in the handling characteristics as a tire goes low. After all we survived for 100 years without TPMS.

### Tpms light is back on

i had a friend that had over size tires and rims mounted and the TPMS lighs stayed on it was because ot the improper size tire and rims specifications for that type of vehicle

### I put custom rims on and now the low tire light comes on and it dosent reset what can I do to fix this problem

The low tire pressure monitor (TPMS) is part of the valve stem on the rims of vehicles with TPMS. You will need to install the original valve stems from your original wheels onto your new rims and then the problem should go away. If you no longer HAVE all the original stems (spare can be included! if your TPMS monitored the spare, you have to have it and it has to be aired up!), you will have to BUY original or equivalent stems, then havet hem reprogrammed to match the car (this can be done with a TPMS tool or a factory scantool).

There are no other solutions. That or you can disable the TPMS system readout on some vehicles by removing a fuse or using a disable procedure in the owners manual or factory service manual

### Tire pressure light remains on.

We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
