Toyota Corolla: Reset Tire Pressure Monitoring System

If you ever replace the tires on the Toyota Corolla, you may have to reset or initialize the TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). There are a series of steps you’ll need to perform to do this. Here’s how it’s done.

  1. Fill the tires to the recommended PSI value as indicated on the chart located in the driver-side door jamb.
  2. Turn the ignition on. For push button models press the Engine Start button two times without holding the brake.
  3. Press the ◄► buttons to select ⚙️.
  4. Use the ▲▼ buttons to highlight “Vehicle Settings“, then press and hold the “OK” button until a new menu appears.
  5. Select “TPWS“, then press and hold the “OK” button until a new menu appears.
  6. Select “Set Pressure“, then press and hold the “OK” button until a new menu appears.
  7. The TPMS light will flash 3 times. Once it has flashed 3 times, release the “OK” button.
  8. Turn off the ignition, then start the engine. The TPMS light should now be cleared.

  1. Fill the tires to the recommended PSI value as indicated on the chart located in the driver-side door jamb.
  2. With the vehicle parked, switch the ignition to or “ON“. For push button models press the Engine Start button two times without holding the brake.
  3. 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.
  4. Wait for about 3 minutes, then turn the ignition to “LOCK” or “OFF“, and you’re done.

Note: If you are experiencing problems where the tire pressure warning light is lit when you don’t think it should be, ensure that you have checked the pressure in all tires. That includes the spare if you have one!
