When the tire pressure warning light does not go off, or when it comes on during driving, check tire pressure and adjust as necessary.
The warning light should turn off within a few minutes.
If the warning light is still on even though the tire pressure is correctly adjusted, the tire could be punctured. Repair as necessary.
If the warning light turns on within several hours after adjusting the tire pressure, the tire may have a slow air leak. Repair as necessary.
If the warning light is on or blinks after all above situations have been investigated, there is a malfunction in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.
Under the following conditions, the system may not function properly:
Facilities or devices that use similar radio wave frequencies are located in the vicinity of the vehicle.
A radio device of similar frequency is used near the vehicle.
A large amount of snow or ice is stuck to the vehicle, especially around the wheels or wheel housings.
The ID of the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter has not been registered with the ECU.
Tires and wheels are installed that are not equipped with a tire pressure sensor.
A type of film that affects radio waves has been affixed to the windows.
Snow tires or tire chains are used.
The battery of the sensor has been depleted.
Wheels other than manufacturer factory wheels are being used. If wheels other than those specified are used, the system may not function properly because of interruptions in transmissions from the tire pressure sensor.
Depending on the tire type, the system may not function properly even though the specified wheels are used.
The compact spare tire is installed. The compact spare does include a tire pressure sensor and transmitter.
If the system was initialized with tire pressures which were not at the specified values.
When the spare tire is not within receivable range, the signal may not be received because the spare tire is fixed (not rotating). Accordingly, the system may not function properly. If there is a possibility that the tire pressure warning system is not receiving a signal from the spare tire, rotate the tire 90 to 270 degrees.
