How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

When the tire pressure lights turn on, simply inflating your tires will fix the issue. If the tire pressure light remains on after adding air to your vehicle’s tires, you’ll need to reset it. The tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is important to your vehicle’s safety and once you start running into issues with your TPMS light on, you’ll want to ensure you follow the right steps to reset your tire pressure light. Learn how to do just that with our helpful service guide at Freeway Mazda. Have questions or need assistance? Contact our service team.

Step-by-Step Guide: Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you properly inflate your tires, the tire pressure light should automatically turn off. If the TPMS light remains on, follow these simple steps to reset the tire pressure light:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph for 10 minutes to reset the sensor. This can cause your sensor to reset when you turn on your vehicle.
  • With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “ON” position, but do not start it. Hold the TPMS reset button until you see the flashing tire pressure light blink three times. Then, release the reset button. Start the car and give it about 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is typically found under the steering wheel. Refer to your owner’s manual if you can’t find it.
  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over the recommended amount, then deflate them completely. This includes the spare tire because it could also have a sensor. Once the tires are 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 that’s still left in your car. Then, reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

In most vehicles, the tire pressure sensors use a battery. The flashing tire pressure light often means the battery needs to be replaced. This can also mean there’s an issue with one or more of the tire pressure sensors. If you notice the tire pressure monitor light flashing, schedule service with the Freeway Mazda service team. We’ll have the issue diagnosed and fixed quickly, so you can get back to cruising through Burnaby.
