How do I reset the tire pressure check system on a 2007 Lexus LS460?

I had to pick up aunt Doris from the airport, as she’s spending Thanksgiving with us. She’s lovely, but a tad anxious. Caught in traffic on the drive back, she noticed the tire pressure light was on. Every five minutes, she said something ilke, “Hunny, you should really get that light checked out, it could be dangerous,” or, “Michael, that light could mean something’s catastrophically wrong with the engine—are we going to die?” Then she pinched my cheek.

To reset the tire pressure monitoring system on your 2007 Lexus LS460, hop onto the highway and drive at 50 miles per hour for 10 minutes—this should reset the sensor, and the tire pressure check light should be off the next time you start the car.
If that doesn’t work, there are a few other ways to reset your Lexus’ tire pressure monitoring system.
With your LS460 off, turn the ignition to the ON position, but don’t start the car. Beneath the steering wheel, you’ll find the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) reset button—press and hold it until the flashing TPMS light blinks three times. Release the button, and then turn the ignition on, and wait for about 20 minutes. This should reset the TPMS system, and the light should turn off.
If that doesn’t work, try inflating all the tires 3 pounds per square inch (PSI) above their recommended levels, and then deflate them completely (be a good nephew and don’t make aunt Doris do this). Now, inflate the tires to their proper levels, and the TPMS light should turn off.
