Car Warning Lights

It can be frustrating trying to figure out how to reset your tire pressure light after your tires have been properly inflated.

So what can a flashing tire pressure light mean and what does TPMS mean? Read on to learn more about this system in your vehicle and how you can fix it from home. If you find you need some assistance, don’t hesitate to contact our service department.


What Does TPMS Mean?

Your TPMS is your tire pressure monitoring system. The TPMS light turns on when it detects that your car’s tires are below the threshold of safe tire pressure. This light can also go on if it detects bad traction, poor fuel economy, or a blowout. When you notice a flashing tire pressure light, you’ll want to make sure you make a stop at a gas station or service center to have your tires properly inflated.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Typically, once you inflate your tires, the flashing tire pressure light should go off. If the TPMS light remains on, you can reset it or have a service technician reset it for you. If you’re a Moorestown driver that likes caring for your vehicle on your own, you can follow these steps to learn how to reset your tire pressure light in your tire pressure monitoring system:

  • Drive at or above 80 kilometers 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 down the TPMS reset button until the flashing tire pressure light blinks three times. Then release it. Ignite the engine and wait 20 minutes. If you have trouble finding the reset button, consult your manual. It’s usually located beneath the steering wheel.
  • If that doesn’t work, then Philadelphia drivers should Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, and then deflate them completely. Finally, inflate them to the recommended tire pressure.
  • The last strategy we’ll cover is to turn your vehicle off, disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench, turn the car back on and then honk the horn for about three seconds. This will discharge any remaining power stored in the vehicle. After that, you’ll want to reconnect the car, turn on the battery, and see if your tire light has gone off.
