Are you noticing a flashing tire pressure light even after you’ve inflated your vehicle’s tires? If you notice your TPMS light on for extended periods after filling your tires with air, you may need to reset your TPMS. Your tire pressure monitoring system is crucial to your car’s safety, and it’s vital to ensure that it’s activating properly. If you’re running into issues with your TPMS light on, follow this simple guide or bring your car into our expert service center at Gwatney Chevrolet Company near Cabot and Sherwood.

What Does Your Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Your vehicle’s tire pressure sensors often require a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light can often be a sign that you need to replace your battery. It could also mean a sensor problem. Nevertheless, you should schedule service at Gwatney Chevrolet Company near Little Rock and North Little Rock. We can diagnose your vehicle’s issues and get you back on the streets safely! 

Reset Your Tire Pressure Light

After you’ve inflated your tires properly, your tire pressure light should deactivate on its own. If you continue to see a flashing tire pressure light, however, you can follow the following simple steps: 

  • Drive at or over 50 mph for 10 minutes. This can cause your vehicle’s sensor to reset the next time your turn on your vehicle. 
  • While your car is off, turn your key to the “On” position without starting the engine. Press the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times before releasing it. Start your car and wait about 20 minutes for your car’s sensor to refresh itself. Your tire pressure monitor reset button is generally under your steering wheel. Still can’t find it? Try consulting your car owner’s manual for its location. 
  • Fill all of your car’s tires to 3 PSI over the recommended amount before deflating them entirely. This includes your spare tire, as it may also have a sensor. Once they’re deflated, reinflate them to their suggested tire pressure. 
  • While your car is off, disconnect the positive battery cable using a wrench. Turn your vehicle on and honk the horn for roughly three seconds. This will release any power store in your car. Afterward, reconnect your battery.
