How to Reset the Tire Pressure Light

Your vehicle’s dashboard uses warning lights to indicate any errors that come up on your Georgetown commutes with one of the more notable lights being your TPMS light. However after you’ve filled your tires to correct pressure, you may be left wondering, “where is the TPMS reset button?” Learn more about how to reset the TPMS light with the Nyle Maxwell CDJR of Taylor service department.

What to Do When the TPMS Light is On

To maintain your smooth performance around Cameron, it’s important to properly inflate your tires when the light is illuminated. Improperly inflated tires lead to excessive wear and tear, poor traction, and decreased load carrying capabilities. It can even lead to more expensive repairs as a result of flat tires and blowouts during your commutes.

Your vehicle’s tire pressure can vary if there’s been a recent change in temperature or if you have a slow leak or puncture. If adding the proper amount of air to your tires doesn’t turn the TPMS light off, it may be an issue with the battery or the tire pressure sensors. Schedule service with our technicians to have it professionally checked.

How to Reset the TPMS Light

Once you’ve ensured your vehicle’s tires are properly inflated, learning how to reset the tire pressure light is relatively easy. If you’ve scheduled your routine service, the service technicians can handle it for you. Otherwise, here’s how to reset the TPMS:

  • The TPMS light can reset itself during your College Station drives. When on the highway driving at 50 mph for around 10 minutes allows the sensor to reset. The next time you start your vehicle, the TPMS light should be off.
  • Before starting your Cameron commutes, turn the key to the “On” position without starting the car. Then, press and hold the TPMS reset button until it flashes three times, then release it. Let your vehicle run for 20 minutes to allow the sensor to reset, and you’re all set! If you’re questioning, “where is the TPMS reset button?” check your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
  • Try inflating the tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount and deflating them completely to reset the sensors. The spare tire can also have a sensor, so be sure to include that as well. Once deflated, inflate them to the correct pressure.
  • Another way to reset the TPMS light is by making sure the vehicle is completely off and disconnecting the positive battery cable with a wrench. After it’s safely disconnected, turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This gives any power stored in the vehicle a chance to discharge for a proper reset. Reconnect the battery to see if the light has reset.
