Toyota RAV4 Tire Pressure Light Reset
The Toyota RAV4 is equipped with an advanced tire pressure warning system that’ll help detect when one or more of your tires are low on pressure.
Once all the tires are properly filled, the tire pressure light has to be reset, so it can continue to accurately warn you when the process has to be done again.
Our team at Ira Toyota of Tewksbury will go over how to do a Toyota RAV4 tire pressure light reset. If you need any type of tire service near Lowell, Dracut, or Tewksbury, don’t hesitate to contact us for an appointment.
How to Reset Tire Pressure Light in Toyota RAV4
To reset the tire pressure light in the Toyota RAV4, you’ll need to complete the following steps…
- Park the vehicle in a safe spot and turn the engine off.
- Adjust each tire’s pressure to the correct PSI (pounds per square inch).
- Turn the engine back on.
- Press and hold the tire pressure light reset switch until the light blinks slowly three times.
- Turn the engine off, and then turn it back on to see that the tire pressure warning light has turned off.
You’ll want to make sure this is done after all the tires have been properly inflated. You’ll also want to do it when the tires are cold or haven’t been driven on for at least a few hours. Furthermore, if you accidentally press the reset button, simply adjust the tire pressure to the appropriate level and complete the above steps again.
Tire Pressure Light Operation
There are certain instances when the tire pressure warning system in the RAV4 may not work correctly. These include:
- A tire has been replaced with a non-OEM tire.
- The vehicle is equipped with non-genuine Toyota wheels.
- A window tint has been installed that affects radio wave signals.
- There’s a lot of snow or ice on the car, specifically around the wheels or wheel housings.
- Tire pressure is significantly higher than the stated level.
The tire pressure light may also not work correctly if you’re near a TV tower, radio station, or other building that generates strong radio waves or electrical noise. Plus, if tire pressure declines rapidly for any reason, like due to a tire blowout, then the warning light may not work properly.
Advanced Tire Service
The process of resetting the tire pressure light should only take a minute or two before it turns off. If the light doesn’t blink three times or it never turns off after driving for a certain period of time, then the settings were never recorded. If that’s the case, the tire pressure warning system won’t operate correctly.
