How to Turn Off the Tire Sensor on a Toyota Tundra

by David Clair

Many Toyota Tundra models are outfitted with a tire-pressure-monitoring system that displays a low-tire-pressure warning on the control panel if it detects one of the tires is low. When the tire is filled, or if the tires are changed or rotated, the tire-pressure sensors must be reset to turn off the warning light and reinitialize the system. The system should only be reset when all of the tires are filled to the proper pressure. Toyota recommends inflating the tires to 36 psi each.

Turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position.

Press and hold the "TPMS Set" button located on the steering wheel.

Release the button when the low-tire indicator blinks three times.

Turn off the ignition switch after about five minutes so the system has time to initialize completely.
