2018 – 2021 Models
- Park the Prius in a safe place and turn the power off.
- Inflate or deflate the tires to the desired pressure level. For me, it’s 35 psi.
- Switch the power to “On“. Do not start the vehicle.
- Use the “Left” and “Right” arrows on the right side of the steering wheel to toggle over to the “Gear” icon.
- Use the “Up” and “Down” arrows to toggle the setting to “Vehicle Settings” . Use the “Center” button to select it.
- Use the “Up” and “Down” arrows to toggle the setting to “Maintenance System“. Use the “Center” button to select it.
- Use the “Up” and “Down” arrows to toggle the setting to “TPMS“. Use the “Center” button to select it.
- Now press and hold the “Center” button until the display says “Initialization Completed“.
- With the vehicle parked, switch the ignition to “LOCK“. For vehicles with a smartkey, switch to “OFF“.
- Adjust the tire pressure as desired. Preferably you will want to adjust it to the recommended pressure for cold temperatures. For me, it’s 35 psi.
- Switch the ignition to “ON“.
- Locate the tire pressure reset button located on instrument panel, knee bolster or inside glove box. Press and hold the button until the tire pressure light flashes 3 times.
- Wait for about 3 minutes, then turn the ignition to “LOCK” or “OFF“, and you’re done.
