    Is it the same procedure as resetting the maintenace required light? If so, do you know if it will reset the mileage again for that.

    In the glovebox is the reset button.

    Does anyone have problems with the reset light? My TC has been in service twice for the light coming on when tire pressure is good.

    Tire Pressure

    I believe if you change out the stock tires, the sensor always thinks the tire pressure is off. From the day I got aftermarket tires/rims the light always comes on like 5 mins after I reset...

    grrrrr :mad: i have that problem... 2 tires are yokohamas and 2 are crappy sumitomos (bought the car like that) but you'd think as long as either the tires have correct pressure and/or they're the exact same size you'd be ok...

    can anyone explain that? :confused:

    if they're both the correct pressure... then reset it.

    (if you have an '07... make sure you got your tire pressure sensors)

    TIRE PRESSURE WARNING RESET SWITCH
    • By operating the tire pressure warning reset switch,
    the tire pressure warning ECU can be set to issue a
    warning at an inflation pressure that corresponds to
    the type of tires.
    Therefore, the dealer must set the warning threshold
    to the proper value in order to comply with the local
    regulations.
    • Operate the tire pressure warning reset switch only
    after the inflation pressures of all tires have been
    adjusted on the vehicle.
    • To initialize the system, press and hold the tire
    pressure warning reset switch for 3 seconds or longer
    with the ignition switch in the ON position. After the
    initialization process has started, the warning light
    blinks 3 times (1 second on, 1 second off).
    • During initialization, the tire pressure warning valve
    and transmitter measures the inflation pressure of the
    tires, and registers the signals that are transmitted
    into the tire pressure warning ECU at a frequency of
    once per minute. The initialization process is
    completed when signals from the all tires have been
    received.
