With colder weather, tire pressures will decrease a little. Check the pressures on all your tires. If they are within two or three psi of the recommended pressure, you should be able to drive for another day before airing them back up. But if one (or more) tire is five psi or more below recommended pressure, it probably has a slow leak and should be aired up, preferably repaired, as soon as possible.
im not a vw auto trans expert, but maybe your auto trans needs replacement of the fluid. thats usually the fix with other autos. dont think the engines heat matters, but the gearbox prob heats up on its own as well.
the air pressure in the spare tire is low add air to proper pressure and it will reset itself spare pressure low the perform service could also be for tire but check owners manual for reset service reminders or have scanned at an auto store sum,such as auto zone / advanced auto do it for free and can reset the code via scanner
Firestone Hmmmmmm. Well the reset button is located just under the dash to the left of the steering column, hold for a few seconds and the light should go out. Hopefuly the firestone tech won't tell you your brakes need greasing the next time you go in for service, haha. Oh, I do beleive your tire pressure should be 29 psi. But, you can check your owners manual for correct pressures. It sould also tell you where the reset button is also. That should FixYa good luck.
The transmission fluid needs to be replaced and checked at a transmission shop or the dealer. In the manual is the information you need to when the transmission is due for service to keep your car running 100% and to keep the warranty valid. Good luck and hope this helps.
I assume you want to know the correct tire pressure. Look both under the fuel fill lid and on the drivers door jamb for the sticker that tells you this data. Order an owners manuel for the car as there is a lot of info you might be interested in
I suspect this is a low tire indicator, mine drove me nuts when I didn't know what it was till a buddy of mine told me. (my tires did not even look low to me). I would be willing to bet that the company that did your oil change was nice enough to put some air in your tires. Doing so, your light went off for a bit, but the slow leak is now getting low again and you will need to get it patched/plugged/repaired or filled with air again to get the indicator to go back out.
Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.
