initialize tpms
 
i have a 350 luxury. rotated the tires and need to reset/initialize the tpms. the owners manual shows how, but the picture of the steering wheel looks nothing like my car's. anyone know how to do this?

Been a while since I've done this, if I remember correctly there is a small button under your steering wheel, I think you need to hold it for 10 seconds or until you see the flashing tpms indicator on your dash.

That's what the owner's manual says, but I think the reason mine doesn't have the button is because I have the cold weather package. That portion of the steering wheel is where the heating element is, so there are no buttons at all, behind the wheel. They must have hidden them somewhere else.

I have cold weather package and I have the button under my steering wheel.

You have to dive into the footwell to find it. It took me sticking my head down there to find it the first time.

I hate to ask, but could someone post a picture of the button? I got down there and can't see anything resembling a button. Is it back by the pedals? I don't see any buttons on the column or the wheel.

Thanks! It's not anywhere near where the manual says it is. I should be able to find it now. It's way back in the crawl space!

hi all. What does this button do?

After rotating the tires, this is used to re-initialize the tire pressure monitor system, so that if a tire is low, the system lets you know correctly which tire needs to be taken care of. If your dealer rotates your tires, you won't have to worry about this, because they'll do it for you.
