How to Reset a Tire Pressure Light

TPMS Light on Dash


Are you wondering how to reset your tire pressure light? Sometimes, the tire pressure light remains on even after your tires are correctly inflated. Your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is essential to your safety, and it’s essential to make sure it’s activated. So, if you’re experiencing problems with your TPMS light on, take the steps below, or bring your Mazda to the service center team at Mazda of Jackson in Jackson.

Resetting Your Tire Pressure Light

Once you’ve adequately inflated your tires, the steady or flashing tire pressure light should go off. If it stays on, try any of the following: 

  • Take a drive on a Madison highway or somewhere where you can drive at or above 50 mph for at least 10 minutes. This may cause your TPMS sensor to reset the next time you turn on your vehicle.
  • Turn the key to the “On” position with the vehicle off, but don’t start the car. Hold the TPMS reset button until the TPMS light blinks three times. Then, release it. Start the car and wait 20 minutes to see if the sensor will refresh. Your tire pressure monitor reset button is normally located underneath the steering wheel. If you can’t locate it, check your owner’s manual.
  • Inflate all of the tires on your Mazda to three PSI over their recommended amount. Then, deflate them all thoroughly. Don’t forget the spare tire, because it may have a sensor in it as well. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate them to the recommended tire pressure amount.
  • When your vehicle is off, using a wrench, disconnect the positive battery cable. Turn your Mazda back on and honk the horn for approximately three seconds. This helps to discharge any power left stored in your car. Then, reconnect the battery terminal.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Tire pressure sensors usually use a battery, and a flashing tire pressure light as you drive around Ridgeland may mean that your car battery needs to be replaced. It could also be an indicator that there’s a problem with one of the TPMS sensors. Either way, you should schedule service at Mazda of Jackson. Our service team will diagnose the problem and have you back on Brandon road quickly.
