That is wierd. maybe the sensor got cracked when it was installed on the new wheels and it finally deteriorated or failed.lucynethel1998 said:Have custom wheels (stock size with stock tires) that have been on for 1 year and had NO problem.

Welcome lucynethel1998!lucynethel1998 said:Thanks everyone. I checked all 5 tires and added/subtracted air. Did the reset deal with NO luck. Have custom wheels (stock size with stock tires) that have been on for 1 year and had NO problem. Weird thing is, it was fine when I parked it in the garage for a week. Then I used our new Yaris for a week. Temperature got to freezing for a couple days but nothing else new? But after sitting a week, I got back in it and the stupid light was flashing. NOTHING will reset it. I have tried driving on the freeway to warm up the tires, no luck...........
Sorry, MEANT to say it came back on STEADY after the 3 flashes reset "attempt".musubi said:Welcome lucynethel1998!
Well, if it's flashing, it means that it's "Malfunctioning". Which then means you need to take it to the dealership. Maybe one of the sensors might have gotten dislodged or broke somehow. I wish you luck with that. This TPMS is a pain in the ass.
If it was a steady light, it can be reset.
Unfortunatly we can't blame this one on Toyota. US Legislation was passed after the whole Firestone ordeal, requiring TPMS on all vehicles by 2008. It can be considered a side effect of the Firestone fiasco several years ago.forbye said:use the little black tape trick...all tires inflated to spec and ok?? spare ok??..get a small piece of black electrical tape..place it over the flashing idiot lite..problem solved..all this freakin crap theyre putiing on our vehicles..where 's it gonna end??
