How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

If you see the flashing tire pressure light on after you’ve inflated your tires, it’s time to have it reset. Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an essential component to the safety of your vehicle, which is why it needs to remain activated. Having some trouble with your TPMS light on? Follow these steps, or bring your vehicle to our Middletown service center.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you have finished inflating your tires, the tire pressure light should shut off on its own. However, if it remains on, there are a few things that you can do:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. Doing this can cause your sensor to reset the next time you restart your vehicle.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “ON” position, just don’t start it. Hold the TPMS reset button until the TPMS light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is usually located beneath the steering wheel. Refer to your vehicle’s user’s manual if you can’t find it.
  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. This includes the spare tire, as it could also have a sensor. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds to discharge any power that’s still stored in the car. Then reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

The tire pressure sensors will often use a battery, which means the flashing tire pressure light could be a sign that a battery replacement is needed. It could also indicate an issue with the sensors. Don’t hesitate to contact our service department or schedule an appointment to have your vehicle inspected. We’ll diagnose the problem and get you back out on the Monroe roads in no time.
