Perform a Tire Pressure Light Reset

If your TPMS light is on after you’ve topped off and checked your tire pressure, then you might need to reset your tire pressure light. Try out the methods below to see if you can get your light to reset on your own:

  • For about 10 minutes, drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor in Longmont. 
  • Start with your vehicle off, and then turn the key to the “On” position without actually starting the car. Hold the TPMS reset button (usually located under the steering wheel) until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. 
  • Overinflate your tires by 3 PSI over their recommended amount, deflate them completely, and then inflate them to the recommended amount. Make sure to check your spare too, as it may also have a sensor. 
  • Make sure your vehicle is off and then disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. Doing this will discharge any leftover power in the battery. Reconnect your battery.
