The Toyota Tire Pressure Light Decoded

Tire Pressure Warning Light
You’re driving along the roads of Flower Mound when suddenly, you notice a glow from the corner of your eye. What is your Toyota Tire Pressure light doing and how can you stop it from distracting you? While we’re happy to take a look under the hood at our service department, let’s walk you through some of the most common reasons for a blinking tire pressure light in Toyota models – so you can get back to the roads of Coppell safely!


Basics of the Tire Pressure Light in Toyota Cars

Your Toyota comes with a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to help ensure the best performance possible. This system uses built-in sensors to keep tabs on the tire pressure of all four tires. When your tires are in good shape, the light stays off. But when trouble arises, your TPMS will signal with a steady or blinking light on the dashboard. This indicates that you need to take a look at your tires!


Reasons for Blinking Tire Pressure Light in Toyota Cars

If you notice activity from your Tire Pressure Monitoring System, usually the solution isn’t too complicated. However, it’s important to get the issue resolved quickly. Your tires are one of the most important factors in your performance, fuel economy, and safety – so don’t procrastinate an easy fix!

  • A steady tire pressure light in Toyota models usually indicates that your tires could use some extra air. Be sure to check every tire air pressure using a gauge and fill up to the proper level – check your owner’s manual for more information!
  • When we see a blinking tire pressure light in Toyota models, this is often a signal that your TPMS sensors need a new battery. Batteries lose their strength after between 5 and 8 years, so keep that in mind while troubleshooting.
  • Still not sure what the problem could be? Feel free to drop by the dealership or contact the service department for more personalized advice.
