How can I reset the tire pressure sensor on my Toyota Highlander?

The low tire pressure light came on in my 2017 Toyota Highlander, so I checked the tires and inflated them to the correct pressure. However, it’s been a few hours, and the light still hasn’t turned off. Is there a way to reset the tire pressure sensor on my Toyota Highlander?

Answer
Occasionally after reinflating your tires or having new ones installed, the TPMS, or tire pressure monitoring system, in your 2017 Toyota Highlander needs to be reset before getting an accurate reading. Fortunately, resetting the tire pressure sensor is easy and will only take a few minutes.
To reset the tire pressure sensor on your Toyota Highlander and get rid of the TPMS light, you should:
  • Ensure the tires are properly inflated.
  • Turn the ignition switch to the On position, but don’t start the engine. If your car is push-to-start, press the Power button twice without depressing the brake.
  • Locate the TPMS Set button typically found below the steering wheel.
  • Press and hold the Set button.
  • Release the Set button once the warning light flashes three times.
  • Wait a few minutes before turning the ignition switch to Off.
Just like how you should regularly check your tire pressure, you should also regularly check to see if you’re overpaying for car insurance by comparing quotes from multiple lenders.
