Clearing the low tire pressure warning light.

Had a tire go low in my '08 Altima, low tire pressure light came on. Had the tire repaired, but the light is still on. Now the dealership wants to charge me $50.00 to clear the light. Does anyone know of a way I can do it myself. Thanks,

That sucks! Some dealerships are ACTUALLY charging to reset the TPM light? Wow!...

We don't charge at all, at my dealership!

Set all of the tires to 36 psi and drive a couple miles. The light will go out by itself. If it doesn't there is another problem with the system.

Exactly what I did.

when you start the car does the tpms light flash or stay solid. If solid then set the pressure to 35psi and drive for 3 miles. If flashing the bcm will need to re register all the tpms monitors. You might have a bad sensor too. Go to some other dealership, most don't charge.

My light has been staying on too, I need to take to a dealership, but haven't found the time yet. Hopefully dealerships down here don't charge $50 for it, that's ridiculous, definitely something I feel like should be done for free.

Some Toyota's have a button under the dash with an emblem on it that sorta looks like a flat tire. Had to...believe it or not...RTFM to find it...the Owner's Manual that is.
Amazing how helpful those things are...
