Default Tire Pressure Warning Reset

At the risk of blushing with embarassment, could someone tell me how to access the reset switch. Both the quick guide and the owner's manual show clearly where it is ... but I can't find it. I've looked under the dash in that area, flashlight and all, zip, nothing. Perhaps in need to call in my contortionist friend.

hehe, yeah what a terrible place for it. It is also under the steering wheel on the RX models I have owned. Its under the steering wheel, then under the board that houses the knee airbag...You just gotta keep looking.

Holy cow, I can't believe it. I just can't believe it. But you know what, I kind of understand. In order to locate that switch, the engineer needed roughly one sq. inch of space. And if you look carefully, that's the only 1 sq. inch avaiable. What a ... joke!

Thanks bud. I owe you one.

Question Still can't find it

I found it!!! OMG, it's in an impossible location. Manual makes it seem like it's mounted facing toward back of car, but it's mounted facing down. About only way to see it is to climb under dash on your back so you're looking up, or to use a decent-sized mirror. Once you know where it is you can find it by feel ... basically below the knee airbag sort of under the steering column. Feel underneath for something with a button (about 3/8") with ridges on either side of it.
