Question about 2004 Toyota Highlander

2 Answers

The low tire light comes on on the dash. I checked my tire pressures and they are fine. I can reset the light but about 2 or 3 minutes into driving it comes back on and tires are fine. What else can cause this?

Tire light should blink 3 times to ensure reset. Overinflation will set it off. Those tires should be at 32psi. Don't forget the spare if it's a full size, it has a sensor too.

One stru or shock more worn than the others causing the car leveling system to be off. think about it. the computer has no way to actually check air tire pressure. it uses the vehicle leveling system to make that determination

SOURCE: low tire pressure light won't stay off after proper reset.

Some newer Toyota vehicles have a sensor in the spare tire. Tires loose air over time naturally. I would check out the spare.
When did this TPS light start coming on?
Have you had new tires put on, or had a flat repair done before the light?

How do you reset the low tire pressure light?


To reset the tire pressure system, do the following:

(NOTE!....Do not reset the check tire pressure system without first
correcting the cause of the problem and checking
and adjusting the pressure in all four tires. If you reset
the system when the tire pressures are incorrect,
the check tire pressure system will not work properly
and may not alert you when a tire is low or high.)

1. With the engine off, turn the ignition to ON.
2. Press the MODE button until the DIC reads LOW
TIRE PRESSURE HOLD SET TO RESET.
3. Press and hold the SET button until you hear a
chime, and TIRE PRESSURE RESET is displayed.

You will hear three chimes, then the LOW TIRE
PRESSURE message will go off and the DIC will return
to TIRE PRESSURE NORMAL. If the LOW TIRE
PRESSURE message comes back on, the check tire
pressure system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
The system completes the calibration process during
driving. The system learns the pressure at each tire
throughout the operating speed range of your vehicle.
The system normally takes between 30 and 60 minutes of
driving to learn the tire pressures. The system normally
takes 10 to 20 minutes of driving in each speed range to
learn tire pressures. The speed ranges are 20 to 40 mph
(32 to 64 km/h), 40 to 60 mph (64 to 96 km/h), and above
60 mph (96 km/h). This time may be longer depending on
your individual driving habits. The learning process does
not need to be completed during a single trip. Once
learned, the system will remember the tire pressure until
the system is reset.

I have a light that comes on in my car it's like an exclaimation mark with like spokes around it When I've been driving my car for a long time and at speeds greater than 50mph, that light comes...


CHECK TIRE PRESSURE SHOULD BE 33 PSI. ONCE YOU CHECK ADD CORRECT TIRE AIR PRESSURE. DRIVE CAR AT 20 MILES PER HOUR FOR 2 MINUTES. THE LOW TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT WILL TURN IT SELF OFF AND RESET ITSELF.

My low tire light came on so I went and had air and all the tires checked but now I don't know how to turn the light off. I have had the car since 2000 and it has 50,000 miles on it but could never figure...


Hello Mattingly.

Here is some information for you regarding your problem.

The Tire Inflation Monitor (TIM) system alerts the driver when the pressure changes in one of the tires. The system only detects a low pressure condition while the vehicle is being driven. Once a low tire pressure condition is detected, the system informs the driver that a low tire pressure condition exist's, whenever the ignition is ON.
The LOW TIRE message appears on the Instrument panel if the tire pressure in one tire becomes at least 82 kPa (12 psi) lower or higher than the other three tires. 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. To clear this message, set the tire pressures in all four tires to the proper pressures and perform the system reset procedure. Refer to Tire Inflation Monitor Reset Procedure for service procedure.
The Tire Inflation Monitor software requires approximately one half hour of straight line driving to complete the TIM autolearn. There are several speed ranges that the EBCM needs to learn the tire inflation configuration in order to have the full capability of detecting a low tire condition. The speed detection ranges are the following:

  • 24-64 km/h (15-40 mph)
  • 64-113 km/h (40-70 mph)
  • 113-145 km/h (70-90 mph)
Each speed range has 2 modes of low tire detection.

  • Monitor Mode 1
  • Monitor Mode 2 The EBCM learns the tire inflation configuration for each speed range independently. In Monitor Mode 1, the EBCM has only partially learned the tire inflation configuration for the speed range and has limited detection capability for a low tire condition. In Monitor Mode 2, the EBCM has fully learned the tire inflation configuration for the speed range and has full detection capability for a low tire condition. If the EBCM is not in Monitor Mode 1 or Monitor Mode 2, a low tire condition cannot be detected because the EBCM has not learned the tire inflation configuration of the vehicle.

To reset (calibrate) the system:
Turn the ignition switch to RUN. Then press and hold the RESET button for about five seconds. The red RESET button is located inside the instrument panel fuse block on the right side of the dash.. The LOW TIRE light will come on and flash three times and then it will turn off.
The system completes the calibration process during driving.
The system normally takes 15 to 20 minutes of driving in each of three speed ranges to "learn" tire pressures. The speed rages are 15 to 40 mph (25 to 65 km/h), 40 to 65 mph (65 to 105 km/h) and above 65 mph (105 km/h).

There you are, this should fix you up.
Keep in mind this system uses wheel speed sensors to calculate. If one of your sensors isn't working your low tire light will remain on.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Changed right front tire now reads zero on dash light is on


Your tire pressure monitor needs to be reset whenever you change or rotate your tires...

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

The check tire pressure light and ABS auto traction sensor light keep coming on. Tire pressure is good


The tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You should be able to re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

Tire pressure sensor or gauge


Have you checked tire pressure? It will come on if your tire pressure is just a few pounds low.

2004 Lexus Ls 430 Low tire


My 2004 Lexus LS 430 has had the light come on several times, even after changing all four tires. There are no tire pressure sensors on my four tires. I was told the car computes tire rotations and since a low pressure tire takes more rotations than a fully inflated tire, the computer puts up a message on the dash.
To reset/turn off the message, put the emergency brake on, start the car and reach below the dash to the right side of your steering column until you feel two buttons in a depressed area under the dash. One button turns on /off your smart key and the other will turn off your tire low pressure message. Depress and hold until the message on your dash goes out and you are good to go. I know this works, I just reset mine a few minutes ago.
