You will have to inflate all tires to proper PSI and the light should reset itself. If it does not there is a persistant leak or a problem with the tire pressure monitor in one of the wheels.

Actually, you inflate the tires to the proper PSI, and then there's a reset button under the dashboard below the steering wheel. For more information, read your manual.

I had the same problem after changing tires on my 2004 Highlander. Make sure when you "turn the ignition switch on, push the reset switch for a few seconds until the light goes out, and then pusch the reset switch again until the light blinks three times". The system does not reset properly until the light blinks three times. Good luck.

This is How: PREPARATION - Make sure tires are inflated to correct PSI 1st - Insert key into ignition 2nd - Turn to On (Before you Actually Turn on your car) 3rd - Look under your Dash and you will see a button that says "TIRE SYSTEM" then push it while the key is in the ON position 4th - Let go of the button and press it again, hold it until the tire pressure indicator blinks 3 times. 5th - Drive it for about 1 hour about 30mph 6th - LittleHorn is Retarded

Easy Peasy. If the low tire light keeps coming back on and all the tires are up to correct pressure, the system needs to be reinitialized. Turn the key on..engine off and hold in the tpm reset button (below steering wheel under dash) and the light will go off. That just resets the tpm system not reinitialize. Turn the key off...then repeat the same process but hold in the reset button until the light flashes slow three times. That will reinitialize the system.

WHERE is the reset button in an 06 I have looked under the steering wheel under the dash and in the glove box.

I found out that the spare tire pressure is also monitored. I had filled and tweaked the 4 and re-initialized via reset button 3X. Checked the spare it was 10 low. Filled it, put it back, light went out on its own. 2010 Highlander.
