THE RELEARN OCCURS AND ALL PRESSURES SHOW GOOD . A WEEK LATER THE FLAT TIRE WARNING COMES AND ALL PRESSURES ARE STILL GOOD . I HAD A CODE (AFTER 1ST OCCURANCE)IN TPMS WITH MY VAG COM SAYING ECU FAULT (SORRY I FORGOT THE NUMBER) . IN MEASURING BLOCKS THERE WERE TIMES WHEN ALL SENSORS DID NOT REGISTER VALUES .

I to own a Phaeton. I have a bad Spare that is causing issues. You may want to check the spare pressure. Since you mention VAGCOM, I have that as well and there is a procedure on VWVORTEX that shows you how to disable the TPMS. I will never trust the dealership again, they are a for profit entity.

SOURCE: Cars says TPMS fault. Checked

Don't know about your car but on mine that little light is actually a thermometer. When it gets cold it comes on and stays on until it gets warmer outside. Seems to like about 30 degrees as a reference point. Myself I think that tire pressure sensor is an unproven technology with too many faults to be put into cars as yet.

SOURCE: 2000 1.8T passat. Check engine

Bruce I would talk to the dealer about this only because they just worked on your car. Ask for the manager and explain that you brought the car in to fix the problem and it was not fixed. Let him know that you feel the mechanic was unable to trouble shoot and fix the problem and you feel he replaced the hose blindly without knowing the whole problem. Offer to pay for the part at discounted price because you would have had to if he had finished trouble shooting the problem but you will not pay for the labor because you had to bring the car back with the same issue.
Yes you can replace the valve yourself at home with a little time. The best thing here for you if you don't feel like dealing with the dealership is to a repair manual, do some reading and ask yourself if that is something you won't to tackle.
DO NOT wait if you go to the dealer the longer you wait the easier it will be for them to tell you no. but stick to your guns, if they value your money they WILL work with.
If you do want to fix this at home please let me know and i'll be happy to help you out more

SOURCE: engine check light on while driving, already replace new fuel filter with regulator, clear fault using vw diagnosis tool, after driving several days, the fault occured again with the fault code p0441>

Your EVAP purge valve may be faulty. Also, check the vaccum lines attached to the valve for any signs of wear and tear. Should be located next to the coolant tank.

Dashboard tire pressure light is on


The tire pressure sensor light being on (after the initial warm-up/self-test when the ignition is turned on) means one of 3 things: a) you have a tire with low pressure (including the spare), b) one of the tire pressure sensors has a bad battery, or c) the system has a malfunction. First, make sure all tires have good pressure and then have your local dealership/auto shop attempt to reset the fault. If this doesn't work, you are in for a difficult time dealing with the other two issues (batteries are not cheap, and neither is diagnosing a bad system)...sorry!

Own a 2004 VW Phaeton V8. Recently bought it with 56,000 miles. Tire pressure warning indicator is on. Just filled tires and pressure is at correct level. Seems like a common problem. Is there anything...


Hi. It is very difficult to remove the Tire pressure warning system.
To reset the light, the vehicle must be driven for a period of about 20 minutes.After the pressures have been check(don't forget the spare, unless you have set the monitoring of it off). If this does not reset it, then there may be a fault in the system. This needs to be rectified by a VW franchise. The sensors are often damaged when the tyres are replaced.
Hope this helps.

I HAVE A 2008 CHEVY COBALT, THE CHECK TIRE PRESSURE LIGHT IS STAYING ON. HOW DO I GET IT SHUT OFF?


All you should need to do is check and set all tire pressures and make sure to check the spare also, after all tires are set with air you then drive a few blocks and the light should reset if the light does not reset then you will need to find out which wheel has a bad air pressure sensor, this is done with a tool that is put on the valve stem or a scan tool to see which tire is showing the wrong pressure, hope this helps.

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.

How do I reset my low tire pressure warning light on my 2006 toyota tundra.


There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset.
There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
If that doesn't work, have them check the technical service bulletins.

Everyone gets confused on this. I see it all the time. Good luck and thank you for using Fixya

The Highlander uses an Indirect Tire Pressure Monitoring System versus Direct type.

There is NO transponder in the air valve. The H/L uses a plain tire old valve. Thus, there is no PSI reading done by this Indirect Type System.
It uses the ABS speed sensors to calculate differences of tire rotational speed among the Four rolling tires(the Spare IS NOT included).
When the spare tire is put on, say when yu get a flat tire, the TPMS button must be pressed. (Recalibrated)

Direct Type TPMS costs more for Toyota and only puts it on select models. i.e. the Land Cruiser...
But for Toyota, the Indirect System meets DOT's TPMS mandated minimum Requirements for 2007 vehicles.

The Direct type system uses a transponder/PSI reader type Air Valve on each tire(including the Spare). Each of the 5 tires send a reading of the PSI to the reciever in the Vehicles TPMS ECU.
It has a small battery and is self powered. Battery must be replaced when yu replace your tires. It must be carefully mounted. Each tire has it's owner frequency channel and ID. for it to be recognized by the ECU.
This system is more precise. But has it's own set problems as a result.

It is the original design TPMS going back to the 1980's introduced with the Corvette and the Runflat Tire option.

How do you reset the low tire light on a 2006 Toyota Tundra?


Check that all tire pressures are good. Including the spare tire. If the spare is low, it will also make the light come on.

Same thing happened to my 2006 T&C when the weather turned cold. I found that the recommended tire pressure was 36 lbs/sq. in. When I inflated all 4 tires to this pressure, the light went out after driving a few miles.
