My2009 Owner's Manual page 429 says at the bottom
Quote:
When a tire is replaced with a spare tire (vehicles with a tire pressure
warning system)
The spare tire is also equipped with the tire pressure warning valve and
transmitter. The tire pressure warning light will turn on if the tire inflation
pressure of the spare tire is low. If a tire goes flat, even though the flat
tire is replaced with the spare tire, the tire pressure warning light does
not turn off. Replace the spare tire with the repaired tire and adjust the
proper tire inflation pressure. The tire pressure warning light will turn off
after a few minutes.

I don't find a rev number, but it apparently was revised.

Lets beat this dead horse even deader.

I am looking at page 429 (four hundred twentry nine) of my owners manual - the paper copy - the one the owner holds in their hand.

If confusion is a destination . . . we have arrived.

I had my light come on and it stayed on. I checked all the pressures, including the spare and they were fine. The light blinks for one minute and then stays on steady. The manual said if it blinks then it could be a few things, such as radio interference from an aftermarket radio or window tint. I have the stock radio and light tint, but the tint has been on there for two years. The manual went on to say have the dealership check it out.

Has anyone else on here experienced the "hard" TPMS light and what was the cause if you were able to fix it. I want to avoid trips to the dealer if possible.

This 4 banger actually tows.

You could ask your dealer for the revised version, but maybe your manual is a collectors item. My paper manual back cover says Publication No.OM42692U; Part number 10999-42692; Printed in Japan 02-0809-01.

FYI, That's the sequence I got when I disconnected the TPMS module which is located forward of the glove box on my '06.

thanks. I will check that out. It occurred while driving on the highway. I wonder if it took a dump or might have came disconnected. I am guessing that it is accessible by lowering the glove box, the same way you do when changing the cabin air filter? This thing is becoming a pain in the butt!

Yes, you disconnect the glove box and it's right in front. If you have 4WD the TPMS module is the left one.
If you can't pinpoint the problem and you're not afraid of a 3.3K Radio Shack resistor you can disable it and make the light stay off.

Thanks to the forum, spare was low on air. As soon as it was filled, the light went off.

Not the first time I've heard of that.

i know this thread is a few weeks old, but my warning light has been on for about a week or so. i checked all of the tires (including the spare) and inflated all of them to 32psi last evening, and the warning light has yet to turn itself off. any ideas why it hasn't shut itself off yet?
