    All tire were inflated to 32 psi. Message keeps flashing reset tires. How do you reset tire sensor. My 08 Honda does it as soon as you inflate tire to proper value. Now lets ponder the bail out for the big three before we open the treasury to them. Learn lessons from Japan. Remember the cupholders?

It's also a good idea to reset the tire pressure sensors when you air up the tires. If I remember correctly, you click the odometer/trip meter switch until it flashes TIRE RESET (or something similar) then press the button and hold it for a few seconds. That way it sets itself to the pressure in the tires at the moment, and if it notices a pressure drop it puts up a warning.

I have a 2004 Freestar and was told by Ford that there are NOT sensors inside the tires to monitor air pressure. It works off the anti-lock brake sensors that measure wheel revolutions. When one tire turns faster because of low pressure ( smaller diameter ) the tire reset will come on. I agree with davintosh about resetting it.

I have that happen to my 2004 ford freestar. Check your tire pressure when the tires are cold. The sensor on these cars are super sensitive! Your tires can be low just a little bit and it will make the reset tire light come on. If that doesn't work then you probably have a bad sensor in the tire. Hope this helps.

Davintosh's tire reset procedure is correct to reset the light if everything is ok. Problem is on some models they do have tire pressure sensors in the wheel while others use the anti lock brake encoders. The best way to tell is to look at the valve core itself, If it has a black rubber stem it uses the anti lock brake encoders, if they are made of metal then each tire has it's own sensor. When having the the tires changed on these type one must be very careful not to damage the sensors or you will not be able to reset the light until the damaged sensor has been replaced. On the models that use the anti lock brake encoders care must be taken not to damage or bump the pickup devices when changing tire. If they get bumped out of their alignment they will not allow the light to be reset either. Make sure there is no build up of mud on any of the anti lock brake encoder parts.

We just had new tires put on the front of our 2005 freestar and the light keeps coming on even after reseting it numerous times what do we do?


if the pressures are ok, and the reset procedure does not fix it, it is likely that one of the sensors became damaged during the tire change. you should return to the service center that changed the tires and have them check it out.

before that, check that ALL FOUR of your tires are set to 35 psi. the system works on pressure differentials (not just low pressure) so make sure ALL the tires are set equally. also note that some systems may also have a sensor in the spare tire, and can cause the light to come on also. please check the door tag on your van to confirm what the pressures are supposed to be set at. good luck!

Waht is the symbol that looks like a tire and what is the reset tire on the odometer


That symbol is for the "TMPS". Tire pressure monitoring system.

Check that all tire pressures are ok. Check the sticker inside the drivers door jamb for the correct pressure.

To reset it turn the key to 'on', use the button near the odometer and cycle to 'reset tire' then hold the button until it clears.
