How do you get the Low Tire Indicator Idiot light to go out after replacing a tire due to a flat?

Asked by May 22, 2013 at 02:14 AM about the 2006 Toyota Highlander Base V6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

After replacing a single tire the dealer is telling me I need to buy another tire in order to
keep from destroying the wheel speed indicator. A tire on one size with a slightly greater
circumference than the original tire on the opposisite size will cause the low tire indicator
to keep coming on, and this will eventually damage or destroy the wheel speed indicator.

There are two ways to reset the indicator light - the first is to hold down the button (hidden under the dashboard next to the steering column) until the light goes out. That's a reset. There's also a reactivation, you hold the button until the light flashes three times and then release, that's for use after a wheel is changed, etc. Make sure they have done the reactivation, not just the reset.
