How to Reset Your Tire Pressure Light

Is your TPMS light on even after you have inflated your tires? You may need to reset it. Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is essential to your vehicle’s safety, which is why you need to make sure that it’s activated. If you are running into any problems with the flashing tire pressure light, follow these steps or bring your vehicle to our West Chester service center for an inspection.

Step-by-Step Guide to Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you have properly inflated your tires, the tire pressure light should automatically go off. However, if it doesn’t, there are a few different things that you can try:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. This causes your sensor to reset the next time you turn on your car.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “On” position, but do not start the car. Hold the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait about 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. You will find the tire pressure monitor reset button under the steering wheel. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual if you can’t find it.
  • Inflate all tires, including the spare tire, to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle off, use a wrench to disconnect the positive battery cable. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This will discharge any power that’s still stored in the vehicle. Then reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

The tire pressure sensor uses a battery, and the flashing tire pressure light is a sign you need to replace the battery. It could also mean there’s an issue with one of the sensors. It’s best to schedule a service appointment near Chester Springs at Jaguar West Chester, so we can diagnose and fix the problem.
