How to reset tire warning light Toyota Camry.

Initializing the tire pressure warning system.

The tire pressure warning system must be initialized when inflation the tire pressure is changed (such as when changing traveling speed or load weight.)

When the tire pressure warning system is initialized, the current tire inflation pressure is set as the pressure benchmark.

How to initialize the tire pressure warning system.

  1. Park the vehicle in a safe place and turn the “ENGINE START STOP” switch or the engine switch OFF.
  2. Adjust the tire inflation pressure to the specified cold tire inflation pressure level. Make sure to adjust the tire pressure to the specified cold tire inflation pressure level. The tire pressure warning system will operate based on this pressure level.
  3. Turn the “ENGINE START STOP” switch to IGNITION ON mode (vehicles with smart key system) or engine switch to the “ON” position (vehicles without smart key system).
  4. Push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the tire pressure warning light blinks slowly 3 times.
  5. Vehicles with smart key system: Wait for a few minutes with the IGNITION ON mode, and then turn the “ENGINE START “STOP” switch OFF. Vehicles without smart key system: Wait for a few minutes with the engine switch “ON”, and then turn the engine switch to the “LOCK” position.

Registering ID codes.

The tire pressure warning valve and transmitter is equipped with a unique ID code. When replacing a tire pressure warning valve and transmitter, it is necessary to register the ID code of tire pressure warning valve and transmitter. Have the ID code registered by your Toyota dealer.

When to replace your Toyota Camry tires.

Tires should be replaced if:

  • You have tire damage such as cuts, splits, cracks deep enough to expose the fabric or bulges indicating internal damage.
  • A tire goes flat repeatedly or cannot be properly repaired due to the size or location of a cut or other damage.

If you are not sure, consult with your Toyota dealer.

Replacing tires and wheels on a Toyota Camry.

If the ID code of the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter is not registered, the tire pressure warning system will not work properly. After driving for about 20 minutes, the tire pressure warning light comes on after blinking for 1 minute to indicate a system malfunction.

Tire life.

Any tire over 6 years old must be checked by a qualified technician even if they have seldom or never been used or damage is not obvious.

If the tread wears down below 0.16 in. (4 mm) on snow tires.

The effectiveness of snow tires is lost.

If you push the tire pressure warning reset switch accidentally.

If initialization is performed, adjust the tire inflation pressure to the specified level and initialize the tire pressure warning system again.

When the initialization of the tire pressure warning system has failed.

Initialization can be completed in a few minutes. However, in the following cases, the settings has not been recorded and the system will not operate properly. If repeated attempts to record tire inflation pressure settings are unsuccessful, have the vehicle inspected by your Toyota dealer.

  • When operating the tire pressure warning reset switch, the tire pressure warning light does not flash 3 times.
  • After carrying out the initialization procedure, the tire pressure warning light blinks for 1 minute then stays on after driving for about 20 minutes.

Routine tire inflation pressure checks.

The tire pressure warning system does not replace routine tire inflation pressure checks. Make sure to check tire inflation pressure as part of your routine of daily vehicle checks.

Maximum load of tire.

Check that the maximum load of the replacement tire is greater than 1/2 of the Gross Axle Weight Ratings (GAWR) of either the front axle or the rear axle, whichever is greater.

For the GAWR, see the Certification Label. For the maximum load of the tire, see the load limit at maximum cold tire inflation pressure mentioned on the sidewall of the tire.

Tire types

  1. Summer tires are high-speed performance tires best suited to highway driving under dry conditions. Since summer tires do not have the same traction performance as snow tires, summer tires are inadequate for driving on snow-covered or icy roads. For driving on snow-covered roads or icy roads, the use of snow tires is recommended. When installing snow tires, be sure to replace all four tires.
  2. All season tires are designed to provide better traction in snow and to be adequate for driving in most winter conditions, as well as for use year round. All season tires, however, do not have adequate traction performance compared with snow tires in heavy or loose snow. Also, all season tires fall short in acceleration and handling performance compared with summer tires in highway driving.
  3. Snow tires. For driving on snow-covered roads or icy roads, we recommend using snow tires. If you need snow tires, select tires of the same size, construction and load capacity as the originally installed tires. Since your vehicle has radial tires as original equipment, make sure your snow tires also have radial construction. Do not install studded tires without first checking local regulations for possible restrictions. Snow tires should be installed on all wheels.

Initializing the tire pressure warning system.

Initialize the tire pressure warning system with the tire inflation pressure adjusted to the specified level.

When inspecting or replacing tires.

Observe the following precautions to prevent accidents. Failure to do so may cause damage to parts of the drive train, as well as dangerous handling characteristics, which may lead to an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

Do not mix tires of different makes, models or tread patterns. Also, do not mix tires of remarkably different treadwear.

Do not use tire sizes other than those recommended by Toyota.

Do not mix differently constructed tires (radial, bias-belted or bias-ply tires).

Do not mix summer, all season and winter tires.

When initializing the tire pressure warning system.

Do not press the tire pressure warning reset switch without first adjusting the tire inflation pressure to the specified level. Otherwise, the tire pressure warning light may not come on even if the tire inflation pressure is low, or it may come on when the tire inflation pressure is actually normal.
