    Hey everybody- new second time 4Runner owner (1997 and now 2018) - just swapped the hwy tires for Falken Wildpeaks in 265/70/r17 SL and the tire pressure warning light will not turn off. Aired up all the tires to 32psi (and the spare which was low) — I’ve tried to reset it but no luck - any suggestions? Should it be a higher psi, maybe 35? Max psi is 51

    some of the other threads about this issue seem to indicate a faulty tire sensor

    Did the place where you got the tires reset to tpms when they installed the new ones?

    Are you having an issue with 1 tire or all 4?

    Don’t know if the place did that — can’t tell which tires, it doesn’t give a code at the auto store - just the light

    Toyota dealership had to shut mine off after getting the dog shit k02’s, discount tire was completely incapable of resetting the light. Also, TPMS warning threshold was set at 25 PSI in techstream, I’d imagine it’s the same for yours.

    Thanks guys - I aired up to 35psi cold - drove it down the highway 15 miles and lo and behold the light goes off - go home, turn it off, turn to the ON position and still no light, so I guess it’s around 35 (37 after warming up) that’s the sweet spot

    Damn y’all — tire light back on again -I’m thinking I may have a tire pressure sensor broken or something

    Take it to Toyota. They can sort it out.

    Yeah, think I’ll have to take it in - thought staying with the “same” size tire wouldn’t give me any problems

    Good chance one was broken with the tire dismounting and mounting. Check with a handheld scanner or techstream to confirm.

    Yeah that’s what I thought— took it back to discount tire — jacktards didn’t reset the sensors when they put my tires on, so they flashed it and now light is off
