How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

Tire Pressure Warning Light_216248072

 


Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) ensures that your car is safe to drive in the Winter Haven area, so you’ll want it to be activated. However, if you’ve inflated your tires recently but the tire pressure light is still on, then you may have to reset it. Try the steps below and if you’re still experiencing issues, be sure to bring your car to the service center at Regal Kia near Plant City.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you’ve properly inflated your tires, the tire pressure light should go off on its own. If it doesn’t, here are some things that you can do:

  • Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor 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 the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is usually located beneath the steering wheel. If you can’t find it, check the user’s manual.
  • Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Be sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. Once they’re 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 still stored in the vehicle. Then reconnect the battery.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Most tire pressure sensors use a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light can mean that the battery needs to be replaced. It could also signal an issue with one of the sensors. Regardless of what the issue is, bring your car over to us near Brandon and we will be able to diagnose the problem and resolve it before you head back on the road.
