The thing is you can take of the sensor off they have a sensor on all the tires even the spare and If you won to take it off you look at the tire and behind the tire is a box and when you open that box there is a fuse inside of it you take the fuse out and that will make the sensor quit but you would need to do it for all the tires even the spare

SOURCE: Reset the Tire Pressure Warning light.

well it depends, if you have just reset the tire pressures, the light should go off by itself, if it doesn't then you have a bad tire pressure sensor. If you have replaced the sensor, it must be programmed into the WCM by the dealership.

SOURCE: tire pressure sensor reset

turn the key to the on position without starting it and beginning with the front left tire let a small amount of air out until the horn honks, front right next, rear left, rear right. You must be relatively quick doing this or the ECU will reset and you need to start over. The procedure is detailed in the owners manual. For some reason the dealer will give you the run around if you call seeking this information.

SOURCE: how it reset service engine light

Is it the "oil change req." light? Your owners manual will have the process for reseting the oil change light.
If it is "service engine soon" light, the vehicle will need to be scanned with a professional scanner.

SOURCE: How to turn tire pressure light off.

Shouldn't really be necessary to do anything to reset it if the system is operating properly.

"The system will automatically update and the TPM warning lamp will extinguish once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 15 mph (25 km/h) to receive this information."

"A system fault can occur by any of the following scenarios:
1) Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2) Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3) Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings.
4) Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5) Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM sensors."

Also, if you have the premium TPM system, the spare tire being low could trigger it, or with either the base or premium system, if you have a flat and change to a spare, the original flat tire could keep it from re-setting. And of course, a faulty sensor could be the problem.

There is a re-setting tool, but that should only be needed if the tire positions are changed (like if you rotate your tires), and that's only so that it can accurately tell you which tire is low, as opposed to turning off a warning light.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Are you sure it's not tpms this is the tire pressure monitoring system check the tire pressure if good it's just a sensor for tire pressure and should reset if pressure was low and you added air

I have a 2005 dodge grand caravan ,and i have changed the tire sensor because the service man broke it but the light of the tire pressure still on how can i turn the light off? Thank you


First they should have replaced it. They broke it. Next it has to be programmed to the system. Also if one person broke it and another changed it. The person who changed it should have programmed it. If you didn't use a tire store either time. Take it there. explain to them and they might do it for free. I have on of these scanners and it takes about 10 minutes to set all the tires.

Why am i not getting a pressure reading for my right back tire while the other three tires are showing a pressure reading?


It is possible that the sensor just needs to be reset. Any place that installs tires should be able to do this for you. If that doesn't work then I would have to say the sensor has been damamged or just gone bad. Hope just getting things reset helps.

I had a flat tire. i put on the spare and gotten all my tires change to new tires, but the tire pressure light is still on. and if i was to speed up the light in my car will pop on, so i had to buy some...


Sounds like they broke your Tire Pressure Monitoring Sensor.

I know you have a Suzuki, but read this forum thread and I believe you will find it very enlightening and close to your specific situation... It sounds like you need to have a talk with the service manager where you got your tires put on.

The service tire monitoring system light is on in my car


You either have a tire that's low on air pressure, or have a wheel sensor problem. First check the pressures in the tires [ if you have a full size spare tire, check that also ] with a known accurate gauge [ ones at public air stations aren't usualy accurate ]. The correct pressure is on a decal in the driver's door frame .
If the pressures are ok, then the tire pressurre monitor system will need to be scanned to find the problem. Any full service shop should have the proper equipment for this.

My "Service Tire Monitor System"


If all tires are properly inflated you have 1 or more bad tire pressure monitors in your wheels. Will need to hook up to a tire pressure monitor scanner & it will tell you which one is bad. They are connected to the bottom of your valve stem in every wheel.

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

What does the yellow tire light mean on the instrument panel?


it means your tire pressure is below recomended pressure parramiters.
This system also moiters the spare!! so check it too!

Unless you had someone change the tires on the vehicle... and they broke off the tire pressure monitor... ( cost about $90 each!)

I just had new tires put on my 2006 Toyota Corrola and the tire pressure indicator light keeps coming on. Is that normal?


no its not normal. sometimes the sensors can be damaged if tires are not mounted correctly. Also they (the tire place) should have retrained the sensor locations to the TPMS unit in the vehicle. take it back and tell them why your back and have them use a TPMS scan tool( tire pressure monitor system) and check the tire sensors. and do not forget the spare as some cars have a sensor in the spare tire also.
