Resetting a Flashing Tire Light

When you add air to your vehicle’s tires, your tire pressure light should automatically go off. If you continue seeing your TPMS sensor light on, follow these simple steps to get you back on Sherwood streets safely by learning how to reset the tire pressure light:

  • Drive at or over 50 mph for about 10 minutes or more. This will generally reset your flashing tire pressure light, which you should notice the next time you turn on your car.
  • Turn your vehicle’s key to the “On” position without starting the vehicle. Push the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light flashes three times, then let go. Start the car and wait for about 20 minutes for the tire pressure sensor to refresh. You’ll usually find the tire pressure monitor reset button below the steering wheel. If you can’t locate it, consult your owner’s manual before getting back on Little Rock and North Little Rock streets.
  • Inflate your vehicle’s tires to three PSI above the recommended level, then completely deflate them. Ensure you do this for your spare tire also, as it may hold a sensor. Once every tire is deflated, inflate them to the recommended tire pressure to reset the tire light.
  • While your vehicle is off, disengage the positive battery cable (note that this will likely reset your clock, memory settings, and other electronic functions to default settings). Turn on the vehicle and honk the horn for roughly three seconds. This will discharge any residual power still stored in your car and should also reset the TPMS sensor light system when you re-engage the vehicle battery.
