Don’t Ignore Your Flashing Tire Pressure Light!

Whatever you do, don’t ignore a flashing tire pressure light in Cameron! When your TPMS light is on it means you have a tire that needs attention because it’s not properly inflated to the proper tire pressure, which could lead to poor traction, flat tires, unnecessary wear-and-tear, or worse, a blowout on a highway outside College Station. 

What to Do With a TPMS Light On

First and foremost, check your tire pressure with a tire pressure gauge. If it’s low, add air. If there’s been a recent change in temperature, that can affect your tire pressure. Check for leaks or punctures as well. If that doesn’t turn off the light, then head for the service center to have the tire professionally checked. It might need to be patched. 

How to Reset a Tire Pressure Light

If you’ve done all of the above and you still have a TPMS light on, it’s time for a reset. The service center technicians can do it for you if you had to take your car in to have it checked. The TPMS light is on after you’re reinflated, try this: 

  • On the highway, drive the car at 50 mph for about 10 minutes. This should reset the sensor, and the next time you start the car the TPMS light should be off.
  • Without starting the car, turn the key to the “On” position. Press the TPMS reset button and hold it until the light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and let it run for 20 minutes to reset the sensor. You’ll usually find the tire pressure monitor reset button beneath the steering wheel. Check your user’s manual if you’re having trouble locating it.
