TPMS issue

My Toyota service center does not know how to change the PSI level from the factory setting of approx 33-34 psi for the warning system to alert me. With my new tires I want to change the system to 25 psi before the warning light comes on.

Does any one know the fix or work around on this?

Re: TPMS issue

Thanks for the reply, I have tried that twice with no results. I'll try it again and hope for better results.. I took it to an independent Toyota service shop yesterday and they couldn't figure it out either. My off road shop put his business card over the light and said that was his quick fix...

Re: TPMS issue

I posted the info from the manual and hadn't tested it until now.

I put key in ignition, set air pressure on 5 tires to 25lbs, turned key to On (not started) pressed the set button for a minutes (finger slipped off button, repressed) and the tire light flashed 3x, waited a couple of seconds turn key to lock , started vehicle and light was off at 25lbs , let some air out and light came on.

Re: TPMS issue

Can you get the light to go out when all the tires including spare are set to OEM values? It's possible you have a bad sensor or they have not been programmed properly.

Re: TPMS issue

Yes, if I set the tires to 33psi or > the light goes off. I tried the reset in the owners manual several times today, the light still stays on when the engine is running.
