What to do when your low tire pressure light won't turn off

When your TPMS warning light comes on, please exercise caution. This means that one or more of your tires may be at least 25% below recommended inflation pressure.

*Checking tire pressure before you've driven on them, when the tire is "cold," is always the best way to get the most accurate reading. If your TPMS light is on, first make sure that you follow the steps here to insure that you have reset your TPMS properly.

If my TPMS light comes on, and I put air in my tires, will the light go off by itself?

The TPMS light should turn off within several minutes after reinflating the tires to their recommended pressure.

What if corrected the tire pressure and my tire pressure light still won't turn off?

When the TPMS warning light comes ON and flashes ON for one second and OFF for three seconds, this indicates a problem with the vehicle's computer and can be corrected only by the dealership service center. When the TPMS warning light comes ON and stays ON, this indicates a low tire pressure condition in one or more tires. Inflating the tire to the recommended tire pressure found on the door placard should cause the light to turn OFF. Remember that one or more of the tires may be low in pressure, so you should always check the pressure in all of your tires.
