Default Warning Light ( Tire Pressure Sensor )

Hello,

My gs is only 2,000 miles when this warning light ( tire pressure sensor ) came on. I checked the display and it showed my front psi as 28 and it was in a yellow box ( like a warning ) and my back psi was 29-30 without the yellow box.

Now I have 2 question

1)I looked at the manual and it said to hold the tire pressure sensor reset button until it blinks. Now where does it blink ? right on the button ? or on my display. Cause I was laying down and pushing the button, and my finger was covering the button so I couldn't see it blink. Also the display is out of my view.

2) Will this even fix the problem ? or anyone have similar incident ?

you need to put more air in the tires. 28 is low. keep them around 32-33psi cold (first thing in the morning before you drive the car)

don't just reset the sensors when there is a light

it's probably coz' it starts to get cooler these days so the pressure drops

If it only show one tire having low psi then u might have a nail in ur tire. Mines came on when my rear passenger tire below 28 psi I thought it just losing air so I just pump some air bak in after 1 or 2 month the tire pressure sensor came on again and I now know that I got a nail.

Locate the tire pressure reset button in the square box under the dash near the center of the steering wheel. Press the START BUTTON twice (foot OFF the brake) to get power to the circuit. Now press the TIRE PRESSURE RESET BUTTON and hold it until the tire symbol on the center display blinks 3 times. The system is now reset. As mentioned, prior to doing this, inflate all tires to a COLD PRESSURE of 33 psi. Your tire pressure warning will now illuminate whenever you have a significant differential between tires that indicates a leakage. Mine has worked well and has already alerted me to a damaged tire that started to leak.

Why would this be necessary if he's not rotating his tires?

Resetting tire pressure and rotating tires has nothing to do with each other. Maybe he's just low on air for one of his tires due to a nail.

What would resetting the sensors have to do with it? Put air in the tire, the light goes away.

No. He''s asking what does rotating the tires have to do with the low pressure warning light coming on?

The issue is the warning. The warning comes on when the air in the tires has dropped a certain amount below the preset pressure. If the preset pressure is too high, you can get warnings for pressures that are fine. Thats why one would air their tires to their specifications and reset the system.
