This is what I did(but don't tell toyota!!), while driving push and hold the sensor for 10 seconds. The very next time i turned the truck on the sensor light was gone, and since then i have tested the sensor at the gas station by deflating a tire enough to ride on around the parking lot without F'n it up, and the light did not come back on, then i refilled the tire and it has not come back on since then.

Now i know alot of you are going to want to start flaming instantly, but i check the tires often enough myself, and do not really care if my damn spare gets a lil low!! I live in the desert where last week the temp was 30 degrees out and this week it has been 70 everyday, so my pressure changes often. I hate the light, and think it is a good option for those men and women out there who do not know they should check their tire pressure often.

Maybe i should have had them replace the valve stem with a plastic one on the spare, or filled the tire with nitrogen so that it would not expand and contract so much, but i went this way instead. And my boy at the local toyota shop says they can reset it easily for me if i want, actually he was the one who told me to hold it while driving(not telling what dealer he works at though).

edit: i do not suggest anyone do this, it may or may not be a good thing, but i have had no problems.

Hmm. I haven't really scavenged around back there enough to know what the sensor looks like, but I will have to check that out, and see if I can build it.

Someone else should give this a try. I think this may be the "fix" people have been looking for.

heres an idea, drive around till u find another tacoma,pull next to it, and press ur tpms button to reset it or get light to go off.it will read the sensors in other truck and should turn ur light off for a while, if u dont have sensors in ur tires. i had my truck in dealership when i didnt have sensors somehow i got light to go off, when i got it back the light was on and i got all the mechanics from back and none of them could get it to go back off , they had no clue what to do.

The bold part is the only thing I take issue with. I do more than the average maintenance on my cars and pay close attention to my tire pressure/wear. However, the day that I drove over a sheetrock blade on the interstate it saved my ass from a catastrophic blow out.


I'd be interested to see if this really works or if it's some sort of oddity.

no reset button

I have a 2006 TRD Access Cab 4x4... I do not have a reset button as pictured in this topic.. Look all over none to be found... This Fall I'm putting on new tires at my hobby shop my self.. so when I remove the wheels roll them over to the tire rack.. deflate, remove, retire,inflate,balance and roll back over truck mount will the TPMS light up? if so... I assume Ii have to back to my dealer to have it reset correct? Thanks for any info on this confusing topic..

You may not have the TPS on your truck. IIRC, it was an option on the '06's

There is a device called Quickset made by ATEQ that a person can use to reset the TPMS light. I ordered mine with new tires, sensors and wheels from tirerack.com. You plug the device into your computer via USB, pick your vehicle, go to vehicle, turn key on and read current sensors ID's. Go back to computer and designate whether these sensors are Winter or Summer. Then enter new sensor ID's (mine were provided by Tire Rack), go back to vehicle and new sensor IDs will be programmed to the ECU. The Quickset is capable of managing winter and summer sensor IDs for four vehicles

I have an 07 Tacoma with the TPMS that is on and wont reset using the reset button, it just flashes and then goes back to being solid.
BUT, in reading this thread i see people suggest i check the spare.
MY spare is on the truck, the wheel/tire that was on the truck in the bed of the truck with a shredded tire on it after a blow out.
In just a bit i will take the shredded unit out of the truck, will it reset then?
EDit:
No it will not.
Spare is in garage, tried to reset indicator, it starts to flash and continues and then goes solid again.
Is this BECAUSE there is no spare?
How does this system sense the low pressure and where are the sensors?

You have a issue with a sensor. More than likely the sensor in the shredded tire
Is damaged.
Flashing tpms light means a problem.
There is no need to play with your tpms sensor reset. All you do is change the threshold pressure.

Get the tpms ecu read and make sure it's only a dead sensor.

Long story short, i kind of inherited/repossessed /assumed ownership of this truck form my brother in law...long story he is incarcerated now.
This thing has had loads of problems, he beat the crap out of it..sad.

Anyway..the blown wheel/spare does not have the metal stem that the other wheels that are on the truck do have.
ok, so it makes no difference that the spare is 100 feet from the vehicle?
does it "look" for 5 sensor reading so to speak and if it doesnt see one stays lit or flashes?
Whats odd is i dont recall this light being on prior to the blow out...perhaps im wrong, could have been on the list of crap i need to look at, i wasnt driving it much, but now i am and noticing things

Looks for 5
See's anything less it flashes. Then stays on steady

My truck came with TPMS sensors in the original wheels but now that I changed the wheels, the light has only come on once and was gone next time I started the truck. I'm not sure what the deal with that is but I'm ok with it.

Your '07 has 5 (and needs 5 valid transmitters at proper pressure)
'09 or '10, they eliminated the spare sensor.

But if the rims have ever been swapped, the new sensors may not be programmed into the ECU. They not only have to be there, the computer has to recognize the electronic serial number.

Also, since the truck is older, the batteries in the sensors may be dead. They are lithium button cell batteries and life is anywhere from 5-8 years.

Go to a tire shop and ask them to check your TPMS programming. Discount/America's will do it for free.
