Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

In most cases, your TMPS light should turn off after you’re inflated your tires with the proper amount of air (usually recommended PSI inflation figures are found in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Recommended PSI ranges are also often found on your tire’s sidewall. If in doubt, go with the owner’s manual recommendations. If your TPMS light remains on, there are a couple of options you can take to rectify the situation and turn it off:

  • Drive your vehicle for 10+ minutes at 50+mph. This should cause your TPMS light to reset the next time you turn on the vehicle.
  • Turn your car off if it’s running. Next, turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the vehicle. After that, hold the TPMS reset button (usually found under the steering wheel) until the tire pressure light blinks three times. Release the button.
  • Start the vehicle and turn it off. Wait 20 minutes for the TPMS system sensors to refresh.
  • Inflate all your vehicle’s tires to 3 PSI more than the recommended pressure. Next, deflate them completely. Be sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. 
  • Once your tires are deflated, reinflate them to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle turned off, disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. 
  • Start your vehicle and honk the horn for roughly three seconds. This should discharge any power still stored in the vehicle. 
  • Reconnect the battery.
  • The above steps should reset your TPMS light and sensors!

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Sometimes, tire pressure monitoring sensors have a battery that requires periodic replacement. If and when this battery begins to get old enough, it could trigger the light to flash. Sometimes, a flashing tire pressure light is also indicative of an issue with one or more TPMS sensors. Either way, if you find that your TPMS light flashes, it’s best to schedule service at Vande Hey Brantmeier near Appleton today!
