The tire pressure monitoring system, or TPMS, uses pressure sensors and transmitters in each wheel to alert you when the air pressure in one or more of your tires is critically low, including the spare.
If the system detects a tire that has much lower air pressure than prescribed, the TPMS icon will appear in the instrument display and stay on. You’ll also see a warning message in the multi-information display.
If the indicator light stays on, check all five tires and refill or replace the low tire or tires. After rotating tires, changing tire inflation pressures, loading heavy cargo, or changing tire sizes, you may need to reinitialize the system.
- Begin by parking the vehicle in a safe place, setting the parking brake, and switching the ignition off.
- Make sure all tire pressures are correct according to the owner’s manual.
- Turn the engine back on.
- Find the TPMS reset button just below the instrument panel and above and to the left of the brake pedal.
- Press and hold the button until the TPMS indicator light blinks slowly three times.
- Wait for several minutes with the engine running, and then turn the vehicle off.
- The system has been initialized. If the light comes on and blinks for one minute before staying on, it indicates the system is not working properly and needs to be serviced by a trained Toyota technician.
- If you need to replace one of the original wheels or pressure sensors, contact your dealer to register the new wheel or sensor in your tire pressure monitoring system.
