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.

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.

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.

2006 Highlander does NOT monitor the spare tire. There are no TPMS on any rims. The system relies on the rotation of the four wheels to calculate if they are running fast (low tire pressure) Since the spare is not spinning and not being analyzed by ABS it is not monitored

2011 Highlander can't find the elusive reset or set switch. All tires have been checked and psi is correct. Anyone have some ideas?
