How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Tire Pressure Warning Light_216248072

Your TPMS is a handy tool that offers insight into the status of your tires. But what do you do if the TPMS light is on, but you’ve just had your tires serviced? If you’re absolutely certain that your tires are in good condition and the warning light is still on, you’ll want to learn how to reset your tire pressure light right away. The good news is that Sid Dillon Chevrolet Crete is here with the tips and tricks you need to keep your vehicle running smoothly on the Milford streets. Read on below to learn how to deal with a TPMS light that won’t shut off, a flashing tire pressure light, and more!

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

When your tires are properly inflated, the TPMS light should go off on its own. Riding around with your TPMS light on is never fun, so if you need to learn how to reset your tire pressure light, there are a few methods you can try:

  • Hit the highway out past Seward and drive at or above 50 mph for at least 10 minutes. When you do this, your tires should reset the next time you start the vehicle.
  • While the vehicle is off, set the key to the “On” position but don’t fire up the engine. Hold down the TPMS reset button, usually found beneath the steering wheel, until it blinks three times. Release the TPMS reset button and let the vehicle run for roughly 20 minutes.
  • Inflate each tire 3 PSI above the recommended volume. Next, deflate them completely. Repeat this process for the spare tire, as it may have its own sensor. Once each tire is flat, inflate them to the proper volume.
  • Disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench while the vehicle is turned off. Turn the car on and honk the horn for a few seconds to discharge any remaining power. Reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

While you may be used to seeing your TPMS light on from time to time, you may be confused when the light starts to blink. What does a flashing tire pressure light mean? Since the sensors in your tires likely rely on batteries, the blinking light is a sign that one or more of the batteries needs to be replaced. It may also indicate that there’s an issue with the sensors. Either way, you’ll want to visit us near Lincoln for service right away if your TPMS light is flashing.
