Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

Mr Wolf

Recommended Posts

It won't be too long before I'll be replacing my front tyres and it struck me that if I have them replaced by one of the National Tyre Retail outlets do they normally reset the TPMS for tyres they replace?

Alternatively, I could have my Toyota dealer do the resetting but no doubt it would cost me! Is it a reasonable DIY job I could do and would I need any special tools?

Any advice welcome, please.

The warning light is coming on, Avensis ICON 64 plate 2.0 manual diesel, especially cold warnings, when the tyre pressures are OK.  Sometimes goes off later.

I've read & re-read the manual but can't work out how to reset: Anyone kindly give me a pointer for where documented or how, please?

Regards & thanks in advance

Thanks for advice above.

Had to have a tyre replaced the other day (side-wall damage/bulge).  There was also faint clunking from wheel (nearside rear).  Had local tyre shop replace, fine, but they found tyre sensor had detached, now a bit damaged, had been glued before (might explain earlier problems..). 

Clearly not an urgent problem & tyre shop didn't have spare sensor in, could get supply & fit (genuine toyota part) about £60.  Mr T quoted about £160 likewise, including "integrating new sensor".  Any views regarding if it's worth risking the local tyre shop doing this?

Regards & thanks in advance
