How to Reset Tire Pressure Light

2020 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Is your tire pressure light still on even after inflating your tires? It’s time to reset your tire pressure light. Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an essential safety feature, which is why you want to make sure that it’s activated. If your TPMS light came on and you’re experiencing issues, follow these steps, or bring your vehicle to our service center at Land Rover West Chester near Exton

 

 

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light: Step-by-Step Guide

After the tires are properly inflated, the light goes off on its own. If it remains on, below are the actions you can take to reset the tire pressure light:

  1. Drive at or above 50 mph to reset the sensor for 10 minutes. This can cause your sensor to reset the next time you turn on the car.
  2. With the vehicle off, turn the key to the “ON” position, but do not start your vehicle. Hold the TPMS reset button until the tire pressure light blinks three times, then release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes for the sensor to refresh. The tire pressure monitor reset button is typically located under the steering wheel. Refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual if you’re unable to locate it. 
  3. Inflate all tires to 3 PSI over their recommended amount, then deflate them completely. Be sure to include the spare tire, as it may have a sensor as well. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate to the recommended tire pressure.
  4. Turn the vehicle off and disconnect the positive battery cable with a wrench. Turn the car on and honk the horn for about three seconds. This discharges any power that’s stored in the car. Then reconnect the battery.

The Meaning Behind the Flashing Tire Pressure Light

Tire pressure sensors will often use a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light can sometimes be a sign that it’s time to replace the battery. It can also indicate a problem with one of the sensors. Either way, it may be time to schedule service at Land Rover West Chester near Philadelphia so our team can diagnose the problem and get you back on the road safely.
