pressure light is on, after add air in tire, the
light is still on, should I reset the TPMS? Or

automatically? Thank you.

Each time you change pressure in one or more tires, the system must be reset so the car knows those readings. Resetting differs form car to car, but it's a simple process and is explained in the owners manual.

Thank you, I see the manual said if you replace the tire, you should drive several miles to let it recalibrate automatically, so I don’t know if I should reset it after add air.


As I said, recalibration differs with different cars. Most cars are nice to you and all you have to do is hit the brake peddle and press the TPMS button: Done. But you have a Touring. In this car you have to go into your menu settings (don't you just love this?) You then drill down to tire pressure and then select calibrate. Over the course of the next thirty miles, the computer does the job for you. I guess Toyota wants you to think you bought a Bentley.

Thank you, I will find menu and reset the pressure, because I have drove about 20 miles after add air, the light is still on, I don’t think it can recalibrate automatically.


You can read about this in your owners manual. The TPMS does recalibrate automatically, but you have to initiate the procedure through the menu
