how to reset TPMS

I checked the manual on how to reset tpms and couldn't find anything. I got oil change at dealer couple of days ago(they must have adjusted the air pressure) and now my TPMS light keeps coming on. I can't seem to fin the switch to reset tpms. Anyone know the location of this switch?

edit:2008 camry se

Your Owners manual says....................

Pushing the tire pressure warning reset switch should not turn off the tire pressure warning light.

Adjusting the tire inflation pressure will turn off the light.

and it also says where the reset switch is.

The switch is behind the glove box on the passenger side.

Thank you for that reply. So i need to take glove box out? I thought it was in the glove box it self, but from reading your reply i am getting feeling that in order for me to get to the switch i need to take globe box out. Is that correct?

I believe you can just open the passenger compartment and there should be a red button on the side (I can't remember if it's on the left or right though).

I must be blind but i don't see any button to press. I was looking for it, when it first happened.Do i actually need to remove the glove box to get to it?

It's the black button on the left side of the glove box. No need to take out anything.

Did you check the tire pressure first? Make sure it's 31 PSI all around?

Yes, I meant 32 PSI, open the glove box, you should see the button on the left side.

A flashlight will help.

I would like to add to this... just Open the door of the glove box just as you would when storing things.

If the tire pressure was set at 32psi, than pump the tire back to 32psi would turn off this low pressure light. (I saw this myself when my tire pressure was low. As I was pumping the tire, the light went off almost instantly)

Anyway.. go to CamryStuff and in the pdf file "Tire & Wheel" and on page 91 is where you find this switch.

The button is to reset the TPMS system in order for the system to know that your current tire pressure is the correct PSI.

His tire pressure gauge is in about the same shape as his eyesight and Owners Manual reading skills.

Just take the whole dash out, then you'll find it easily.
