Reset tire pressure warning light Toyota Sequoia first generation

Reset tire pressure warning light Toyota Sequoia first generation. From year: 2005, 2006, 2007.

How to reset tire pressure warning light Toyota Sequoia 1 generation.

This light warns that the tire pressure of one or more of your tires (including the spare tire) is low. The light comes on when the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position. It goes off after a few seconds. This indicates that the tire pressure warning system is functioning properly.

If the warning light comes on, stop your vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible and check that the inflation pressure of all tires (including the spare tire) is as specified on the tire and loading information label. The light should go off a few minutes after the tire pressure is adjusted.

If the warning light comes on after blinking for 1 minute, the tire pressure warning system may be malfunctioning. Contact your Toyota dealer.

The tire pressure warning system warns you that the tire inflation pressure is low.

The tire pressure warning system is not a substitute for checking normal tire inflation pressure. Check the tire inflation pressure with a tire pressure gauge regularly.

The warning system may not activate immediately if blowout or sudden air loss should occur.

The tire pressure warning light comes on when the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position and goes off after a few seconds. This means the tire pressure warning system is operating properly. If the tire inflation pressure becomes low, the light comes on again. In this case, adjusting the tire inflation pressure will turn off the light after a few minutes. If the light comes on after blinking for 1 minute, the tire pressure warning system is not working properly.

If the tire pressure warning light comes on, be sure to observe the following precautions. Failure to do so could cause loss of vehicle control and result in death or serious injury. 

  • Stop your vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible. Adjust the tire inflation pressure immediately. 
  • If the tire pressure warning light comes on even after tire inflation pressure adjustment, it is probable that you have a flat tire. Check the tires. If the tire is flat, change to the spare tire and have the flat tire repaired by the nearest Toyota dealer. 
  • Avoid abrupt maneuvering and braking. If the vehicle tires deteriorate, you could lose control of the steering wheel or the brakes.

The tire pressure warning light may turn on due to natural causes such as natural air leaks or tire inflation pressure changes caused by temperature. In this case, adjusting the tire inflation pressure will turn off the light after a few minutes. Pushing the tire pressure warning reset switch should not turn off the tire pressure warning light. Adjusting the tire inflation pressure will turn off the light. The spare tire is also equipped with the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter. The tire pressure warning light will turn on if the tire inflation pressure of the spare tire is low. If a tire goes flat, even though the flat tire is replaced with the spare tire, the warning light does not turn off. Replace the spare tire with the repaired tire and adjust the proper tire inflation pressure. The tire pressure warning light will turn off after a few minutes.

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 (tire and load information label). (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label (tire and load information label), you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires.)

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

Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction indicator to indicate when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction indicator is combined with the low tire pressure telltale (tire pressure warning light). When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon subsequent vehicle start−ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire pressure as intended.

TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction may occur for a variety of reasons, including the installation  of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle that prevent the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS (tire pressure warning system) to continue to function properly.

IF THE TIRE PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT COMES ON AFTER BLINKING FOR 1 MINUTE.

If the tire pressure warning light comes on after blinking for 1 minute when the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position, the tire pressure warning system is not working properly.

The system will be disabled in the following conditions: When the condition becomes normal, the system will work properly.

  • If tires not equipped with tire pressure warning valves and transmitters are used.
  • If the ID code on the tire pressure warning valves and transmitters is not registered in the tire pressure warning computer.
  •  If the tire inflation pressure is more than 500 kPa (5.1 kgf/cm2 or bar, 73 psi).

The system may be disabled in the following conditions: When the condition becomes normal, the system will work properly.

  • If the tire inflation pressure is more than 500 kPa (5.1 kgf/cm2 or bar, 73 psi).
  •  If electronic devices or facilities using similar radio wave frequencies are nearby.
  •  If a radio set at similar frequencies is in use in the vehicle.
  •  If a window tint that affects the radio wave signals is installed.
  •  If there is a lot of snow or ice on the vehicle, in particular around the wheels or wheel housings.
  •  If non−genuine Toyota wheels are used.
  •  If tire chains are used.
  •  If the spare tire is in a location subject to poor radio wave signal reception.

If the tire pressure warning light continues to come on after blinking for 1 minute when the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position, have the system checked by your Toyota dealer.

Even if you use genuine wheels, the tire pressure warning system may not work properly with some types of tires. Pushing the tire pressure warning reset switch should not turn off the tire pressure warning light.
