Smile Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) reset button

My TPMS warning light has come on, and I have corrected the pressures, but still have the light.

The '09 RAV manual says: "Pushing the tire pressure warning light reset switch . . . . .'

I have looked for a long while in the owners manual and cannot find any information regarding the switch.

Does anybody know if there is a reset switch, and where it is located?

THANKS, Dave

My '06 doesn't have a button. It went off by itself when I aired up the spare.

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

my 2010 sport does not have such button. What pressure did you set the tires to and is it when the car is cold or when the car is hot?

Reset switch? None that I've ever heard of. The light will correct itself in 24 hours or less.

Did you remember to check the spare tire?

AFTER I read the manual, which reminded me to check spare - that was the problem. No more TPMS warning light

However, I am still looking for the magic reset button the manual refers to.
I can't believe the manual is wrong. ?

You found the magic button. It's the cap on the spare. But you twist it not push it, so the manual IS wrong.

I am unable to find such a phrase in the 2009 Owner's Manual. Is that the manual you are referring to? Would you care to name a page number?

Hmmmmmm. We have already estabilished there is no such button.

Anyhow, I found the information in the 2009 Owners Manual for the RAV4,
on page 429. It is in the middle of the page under the highlighted black sentence: "When the tire pressure warning light comes on."
