    Not to be crappy but why does Toyota even bother making owner's manuals anymore? The next car I buy I am going to negotiate the price without the owner's manual and see where that gets me.

    It'll flash for the first minute if a censor is broken. If it just comes on and stays on-Just tire pressure.

    Don't forget to check the spare tires pressure also.

    Thanks for everyone's help it was the left front tire that was low and now the light is off.

    Another question if it would have been the spare in order to fill it with air you have to take it off? That's a pain.

    Check to see if you even have one in the spare. They stopped putting the sensor in the spare in either 08 or 09. Get the spare down once and flip it so you can get to the valve stem from the bottom without dropping it down next time.
