    That means you have a low tire.

    was it cold in Calgary this morning? I woke up the other day it was maybe 40* and the light was on, it was the spare tire, tires tend to lose air when its cold

    See build thread.
    Welcome to TW.

    when you get home tonight, pour yourself a drink, and read every page of the owners manual. Believe it or not, there is a lot of good information in there.

    I agree, it's a great feature in my opinion. Your info says you have a 2010, are you sure you have a TPMS in the spare?

    I have been reading my manual. I've never had tpms so I thought it looked like a bulb out error. I'm going to check after work today. I have a compressor, now I need to first find my tire gauge lol. Thanks for the help you guys.

    American trucks don't have a bulb error indicator light. Is that indicator common on Canadian vehicles?

    No bulb-out error indicator light in Tacomas, US, Canadian or Mexican. Dubious feature IMO: If a blinker goes out you get hyperblink. If a headlight goes out you'll notice reduced lighting. LED tail lights don't burn out. The bulb-out detection system does complicate HID kit installation.
