Resetting Tps After Battery Disconnected

Recommended Posts

I needed to disconnect the battery in order to work on my Rx400, however after reconnecting the battery I have been unable to reset the tire pressue monitoring system. The tire pressue is exactly what it should be. I followed the instructions in the owners manual, but still no luck. I didn't have any problems before disconnecting the battery. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to hear them.

thanks in advance.

What is the error you're getting? Does it say "low tire" or something else in the gauge cluster LCD? There are two types of warnings...

AH yes, "check system"... that's the second type of TPMS error message, the one that indicates a "problem" within the TPMS system itself, not just an indicator that a tire would be low and require re-calibration.

My guess is that you'll need to visit the dealer for this one. I had the SAME error 2 times before, both times required me to see the dealer so they could fix it. I tried to fix it on my own, tried disconnecting the battery, doing all sorts of resets, but after 20 minutes of driving in D the light always came back on.

I was never clear on what was wrong exactly, all i know is that i was in and out within 10 minutes and they didn't charge me. <_<

Any chance your Rx's under warranty? From the pic you took of your Rx in your other topic, i see the wood trim (vs aluminum) so i'm gonna guess yours is an 07 or 08. I believe the warranty is 4 years... so even if you're off by a few months the dealer shouldn't hassle you about it... Just tell them that i happened after you replaced the battery.
