My tire sensor keeps going off in my toyota solara no matter what the tire pressure is.

Asked by Aug 09, 2012 at 09:30 AM about the 2004 Toyota Camry Solara SLE V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

No matter what the tire pressure is, the tire sensor 'dummy' light goes off in my 2004 Toyota Solara.  It's no problem, just annyoing.  I can reset with the switch just below the mirror controls, but it will come on again when I start moving the car again.  Any suggestions on how to fix?  I like the feature, it is just not working correclty.  

thanks in advance!

1) Tire pressure is low in one or more tires (which you have already eliminated as a possible cause) 2) Something has contaminated one or more of the sensors. Possible contaminants are moisture in the compressed air used to fill the tire, bead sealer used to seat the tire bead on the wheel rim, or a fix-a-flat or green slime product 3) One or more of the sensors is defective 45) There is a problem with the low pressure warning light receiver circuit or control module.

I'm told that it even checks the spare... so be sure that it's inflated to proper levels.
