How To Reset Tire Pressure Light

Tire Pressure Warning Light_216248072

If you’ve got a modern vehicle, you’ll find that it’s likely equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). TPMS allows you to enjoy safe Denver drives by ensuring that your tires are at the optimal pressure.

But, what if your TPMS light is on? If your TPMS light is on, it likely means that you need to add more air to your tires. After adding air to your tires, if you still notice that your TPMS light is on, it’s possible that you need to reset your TPMS. Learn how to reset your tire pressure light today with the service experts at Transwest GMC!

What You Can Do If Your TPMS Light Is On

If your TPMS light is on, you’ll want to have it addressed immediately. Having the incorrect air pressure in your tires can not only shorten your tire’s lifespan but could also be a potential safety issue. For maximum safety and traction on the streets of Brighton, you’ll want to ensure that your tires have the proper amount of air.

With that being said, if you’ve already ensured that your tires have the correct air pressure but your TPMS light is on, there’s a good chance that you simply need to reset them. Here’s how to reset your tire pressure light:

  • Go for a short drive around Thornton. Sometimes, driving around 50 mph for about 10 minutes could reset your tire pressure sensors after they’ve been properly inflated.
  • Some models will have a TPMS reset button. All you need to do is press and hold the reset button while you turn the key into the “On” position. Most of the time, you’ll see a flashing TPMS light that’ll eventually turn off if the tire pressures are correct.
  • You can also try to reset your TPMS light by inflating all of your tires 3 PSI over the recommended amount. Then, deflate them all completely and inflate them all to the recommended tire pressure.
  • Check your spare. Sometimes, spare tires also have a tire pressure monitoring system sensor that’ll trigger the light to turn on if the spare tire is low on air.
  • There may be some instances where you’ll have to fully disconnect the battery to reset the TPMS light. You can do this by removing the battery cables from your vehicle’s battery. Then, discharge the rest of the stored power in your vehicle by attempting to honk the horn. Finally, reconnect the battery and the TPMS light should be off.

Do You Have a Flashing Tire Pressure Light?

If you’ve tried all of our suggestions and you can’t find anything else in your owner’s manual, there’s a chance that one of your TPMS sensors needs to be replaced. If you have a flashing tire pressure light and you’ve attempted to reset the light as well as ensure your tires are properly inflated, you’ll want to schedule a visit with our service center.
