Hello, I had my 09 XRS for about 7 months, just today I got the TPMS sign turn on for the first time... So I was wondering how long does it usually take for the tires to need more air. About what is the appropriate occasion the TMPS should turn on, meaning is 7 months too fast or jusr right... Any details are accepted. thanks.

The TPMS only turns on when one or more of your tires get low on pressure. There is not specific interval for them to turn on. I try to check my tire pressure weekly to ensure that there are no leaks or anything. Just this past saturday I found a Nail in my tread and had to repair it. There was no loss in pressure (yet) but i figured i better not put it off.

Check your tires with one of the little pressure guages you can buy at gas stations or go to an air pump. most people's pressure here is 32psi to 42psi.

I keep mine at 38psi.

make it a weekly habit to check everything with your car before using it. there are days that we feel lazy to do anything. one good idea is to just go around the car in a slow pace and look at the tires if they are fairly inflated, look at the lights for burnouts, look for dents and scratches or anything unusual. on days that you feel hyper and lively you may want to check the fluids.

i have seen a lot of people in the morning who just proceed to their cars, turn on the ignition and leave. bad move bad attitude in my opinion.

Tire pressures right now Front 36... Back 35.5

I used Snow tires during the winter months, mounted on rims, without TPMS



I did a tire change over 1 month ago from winter to OEM tires.

With the OEM tires on, I tried to reset TPMS, disconnect the battery, read the manual,follow the reset instruction, and the tire light still there.

I am wondering if by rotating the tires (back to front) will it makes the TPMS light stay on?

here are my reset procedure

confirm tire pressure 32psi all around
I did turn my ignition on , hold the reset button and counted for 1001 1002 1003 and then turn back to the off ignition position.. no dice

..

reset the tire pressure to 23 psi.. do the reset procedure,

pump it back up to 32 psi and redo the reset procedures..

still no dice.. what should I do..

nothing... something Toyota doesnt tell you that if you put winters on the tire pressure system doesnt work. Put your oems back on and it works fine. Just pay attention to your tire pressure.

I don't know if this will be any help to you but, I had to press the reset button a few times in order to get the TPMS light to stay off after putting my summer tires back on.
The light didn't come on when I first put the summer tires on. It only came on after I had been highway driving for about half an hour.
I knew there was supposed to be some kind of step process to reset things but I didn't have the manual with me at the time and all I did was hold the button in for probably 5 seconds and then pressed it quickly a couple of more times right after.
The car was started but not moving.
I think I did this a couple of times at the time before it finally stayed off.
That was a couple of weeks ago and it hasn't come on since.

I had the same set up as you did regarding the winter tires and I did rotate the summer tires when I put them on. So, rotating the tires shouldn't be the cause of the light staying on.

Maybe you need to drive at highway speed for a constant length of time, then try resetting things.

thanks for the reply and yes that is what I did because the light would not go away even pressing the button and I got on the freeway and it right away the light turned off. so yes thanks for the info
