Tyre Pressure Warning Light
« on: June 01, 2018, 06:54:34 pm »
So, I took my car in for an alignment and wheel balancing today....Car now drives alot better but half an hour into my trip home from picking the car up, it threw the tyre pressure warning on the dash. The tyres are all fine but for the love of god, how do I get the warning light to go away! I just got rid of the headlight warning light and now this thing has appeared!

It's nice to know the car let's me know if something needs looking at but everytime someone does work on it is getting a bit tired  ;)

I probably threw up the TPMS due to the tyres being swapped when they did the balancing. If they are different diameters slightly due to different brands, models, tyre pressures or amounts of wear then often the alarm will be triggered. As the others said, press and hold the TPMS button in front of the gear lever until you hear a 'bong' sound.
Best to do this after you've set your tyre pressures where you like them.
