Will missing TPMS cause red maintenance light?
I'm about to buy a Lexus but can't figure this out... the current owner has two sets of wheels. The wheels on the car do not have the TPMS sensors in them. So it has a warning about this on the screen. It also has the little red triangle with an exclamation point inside of it. The current owner says that is also due to the missing sensors. It seems strange to me that there would be three separate warnings for missing sensors - constant TPMS light, CHECK SYSTEM warning with another TPMS icon above the odo, and the red triangle.
I've gone through the system and deleted all of the normal maintenance required reminders. Oil change, filters, etc. I've tried resetting the light with info I found on this forum - with odometer on total mileage, turn off car, hold 'TRIP' button, press start button 2x. This didn't do anything.
I have also scanned the computer with my OBDII scanner for engine codes/faults, there are none.
If anyone has any info about this I'd really appreciate it. I'm going to try to get my hands on the other set of wheels so I can try to resolve this, but they are in storage or something and I might not be able to do this for a few days.
