How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Tire Pressure Check

Your tire pressure monitoring system, or TPMS, is critical to the safety of your vehicle, and it’s important to make sure it’s activated. If your tire pressure light remains on after you’ve inflated your tires, you may have to reset it. If you notice the TPMS light on, follow these steps, or if you’re having trouble getting it reset, bring your vehicle into the Sam Leman Chevrolet Bloomington service center.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once your tires are properly inflated, the tire pressure light should turn off, however, if it remains on, there are a few steps you can take to turn it off:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. This can cause your sensor to reset the next time you turn on the car.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the car. Hold the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is usually located beneath the steering wheel. If you can’t find it, check the user’s manual.
  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Be sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  • With the vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This will discharge any power still stored in the vehicle. Then reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Tire pressure sensors often use a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light can often be a sign that the battery needs to be replaced. This could also be because of an issue with a sensor. If you notice a flashing Tire Pressure light, you’ll want to schedule a service appointment at our service center so we can properly diagnose the problem and get you safely back on Decatur roads.
