Make sure there's 30 psi in each tire. If you have a full size spare, check that as well. If that's good, there should be a reset button under the steering wheel somewhere. Hold it down with the key on or engine running until it blinks 3 times and goes out. If that's no good make sure you still have 4 sensors.

My ( ! ) light stays on


Hi there:
Is your TPMS Warning Light On? The Tire Pressure Monitor System monitors the inflation pressure of the tires on your vehicle. If the pressure inside any tire drops 25 percent or more below its recommended inflation pressure, the warning light comes on to alert you.


Should you stop driving and check your tires immediately? It would probably be wise to find a safe place to stop or pull over so you can check the tires. You may just have a low tire that has been slowly seeping air over a period of time. Or, you may have a tire that is going flat. The TPMS Warning Light only tells you the pressure is low in one of the tires, not how fast the tire is losing pressure.


Important: Check the pressure in ALL of your tires, not just the one that triggered the TPMS Warning Light. Why? Because you may have other tires that are also low, but not low enough to trigger the warning light.
If you discover that one or more tires are low, add air to bring them back up to the recommended inflation pressure for your vehicle. You can find this information on a decal which may be mounted in a door pillar, the glovebox, or in your owners manual (which you should carry in your glove box).

Tpms light on, dic indicated low tp fr, inflated to proper pressure,tpms stays on, dic wont update


TPMS - TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR WARNING LIGHT
NOTE: Tire pressure rises and falls depending on heat caused by vehicle's operation and the outside temperature. If outside temperature is low, the air inside the tire may cool, causing a lower tire inflation pressure. This may cause the low tire pressure warning light to illuminate.

When the tire pressure warning light comes on, immediately check the air pressure of all tires and adjust to the specified pressure. Make sure the warning light goes off. If the warning light stays on or flashes, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

How do i fix low tire pressure warning light that will not go away on 1997 lincoln continental. Spare is a donut, so dont think it is involved, I fill tires, and drive 10 minutes and sensor triggers light...


When you "fill" the tires they must be within 3 lbs of each other or the tire pressure warning light will come on. If the tires are "filled" correctly and the tire pressure light still comes on, you may have a tire pressure sensor that has gone bad. You would then have to take your car in to the dealer or tire shop to determine which tire sensor is bad.
Good luck.

My child away at college, has a Rav4, 2008 with a warning light on that looks like "tire tread?" Just had the oil changed 2 weeks ago, so shouldn't have anything to do with that. Sound familiar?...


That symbol (tire tread) could mean a low tire pressure. The majority of vehicles today have the low tire pressure warning system, which indicates that one or more of the tires are below the minimum tire pressure. Have the tire pressure checked in each tire. As for turning the warning light off, some vehicles the light will go out after tires are inflated properly. Have them check the owner's manual for resetting warning light. Please inform me as to whether or not it was the tires...thanks.

How do you reset low tire light


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.

Low pressure light staying on .


the system will monitor all 5 tires. if one is 3-4 pounds differant or 1 of the tires are missing it will come on. doesn't matter what tires you have because the valve stem does the work.

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?

Your nissan also has a tire monitor on your spare tire if your spare has low pressure and the other 4 tires have correct pressure the light will stay on . after you ajust the spare also the light should go away.
