How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

filling air in tire

If you notice a flashing tire pressure light while driving around Woodway, what does it mean – and what do you do next? Your vehicle has a built-in tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) to alert you of any issues with your tires, and when you notice the TPMS light on, it means something needs to be investigated. Learn how to reset tire pressure light settings and how to diagnose the issue with Allen Samuels Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT!


Why is TPMS Important?

If you notice the TPMS light on, there’s no need to panic. However, it’s important to get your car into the service department promptly. Why? If your tire pressure is incorrect, it can lead to issues like:

  • Poor fuel economy
  • Unpredictable handling
  • Reduced tire lifespan
  • Compromised safety
  • Increased chance of blowouts

What Can I Do if my TPMS Light is On?

If your TPMS light pops on during your Temple commute, the most likely culprit is underinflation. Your tires may become underinflated from anything from cold temperatures to punctures, but tires also lose air over time. Pull into a gas station and take the air pressure of all four tires. If your reading falls under the recommended PSI, fill them up and see if the TPMS light turns off.

What About a Flashing Tire Pressure Light?

You’ll notice a flashing tire pressure light every time you start your vehicle, which is completely normal. If the light turns off within a few seconds, no need to worry. But if it continues to flash, this could indicate a problem with the sensors or battery – which means a trip to the service department.

How Can I Reset the TPMS Light?

We recommend checking your owner’s manual for more in-depth instructions, but here are the general steps to learn how to reset your TPMS light:

  • Drive your car at 50 mph for 10 minutes to reset the sensor.
  • Find a place to park and turn off your car completely.
  • Turn your key to the “On” position without turning the car back on.
  • Press the TPMS reset button and hold until the light blinks three times.
  • Release the button.
  • Start the car and drive for 20 minutes to reset the sensor.
