    I recently bought a 2005 tC and it did not come with a owners manual. I had a light pop on about a week ago that looks like this (!) with the little squiggly line at the bottom. Can someone tell me what this means? I can't afford to take it back to the dealership to get a diagnostic at the moment and I don't want to keep driving it if is going to cause problems. Thanks!

    That's your tire pressure warning light. Inflate your tires to the recommended PSI, turn your car's ignition to the accessory (ACC) setting, open your glove box, and press and hold the button on the left hand side for about 5-10 seconds. That should make the light go out.

    By the way, the image is a cross sectional view of a tire.

    Welcome to the tC world.
    DO as above and it should fix it.

    Do you have aftermarket rims?

    Hey thanks you guys! I guess I should just suck it up and buy a manual already! I still have stock everything. I have plans just waiting for the funds to come in!

    Put some air in it and all should be good.

    Start a thread with what your plans are, I love to see a modded tC.

    As per the Scion Maintenance Manual:

    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.
