HOW TO RESET CAMRY SOLARA TPMS LIGHT

Camry Solara 2004-2006 TPMS Reset

TPMS RESET

NOTE: Initialization is NOT required if re-inflating tires to the currently specified tire pressure.

NOTE: This system requires initializing after changing tires or wheels, after rotating the tires, or when tire pressure warning light blinks twice every second. Set tire pressure within the specified range before initializing. If the tire air pressure is not within the specified range, tire pressure warning system will not function.

NOTE: If the negative battery terminal is disconnected, initialize the following systems after the terminal is reconnected: power window and sliding roof. Refer to owner’s manual or appropriate manufacturer service information.

CAUTION: DO NOT push the reset switch without adjusting tire inflation pressure. Otherwise, the low tire pressure warning light may not come on even if the tire pressure is low, or it may come on when the tire inflation pressure is actually normal. If you push the reset switch while the vehicle is moving, initialization is not performed.

1. Set the tire pressure of all wheels to pressure specified on the tire and loading information label.
2. With vehicle stopped and parking brake applied, turn ignition switch to ON position.
3. Press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the tire pressure warning light blinks 3 times at one-second intervals.

NOTE: If the tire pressure warning light does not blink, turn ignition switch to OFF
position and perform the initialization procedure again starting at step 2. If light still does not blink, there is a problem in the TPM system. See appropriate manufacturer service information.

4. Drive the vehicle at 19 mph (30 km/h) or more to complete the initialization of the skid control ECU (it takes 0.5-1 hour). Vehicle should be driven under the following conditions:

  • The vehicle speed is between 31-62 mph (50-100 km/h).
  • The roads are dry, smooth and straight. l The number of passengers is 1 or 2 (including driver).

NOTE: If the tire pressure warning light blinks at 0.25 second intervals while the vehicle is being driven, the initialization may have failed. If so, turn ignition switch to OFF position and perform the initialization procedure again starting at step 1.

5. After initialization is completed, the skid control ECU monitors the tire pressure by using the wheel speed sensors.
6. To verify the system has been initialized, check the length of time the tire pressure warning light is on after turning the ignition switch to the ON position. Light will stay on for 3 seconds if system is initialized, or 4 seconds if system is not initialized.

NOTE: Initialization is NOT required if re-inflating tires to the currently specified tire pressure.

NOTE: The system will need to be initialized when tires are replaced with tires of different pressures; tire pressure sensor and/or tire pressure monitor ECU are replaced. Set tire pressure within the specified range before initializing. When a tire pressure sensor and/or tire pressure monitor ECU are replaced, the sensor ID must be memorized by the tire pressure monitor ECU prior to system initialization. See Tire Pressure Sensor Registration.

Initializing Tire Pressure Monitor System

CAUTION: Set tire pressure within the specified range before initializing. DO NOT push the reset switch without adjusting tire inflation pressure of all 4 tires. Otherwise, the low tire pressure warning light may not come on even if the tire pressure is low, or it may come on when the tire inflation pressure is
actually normal. If you push the reset switch while the vehicle is moving, initialization is not performed.

NOTE: When initializing the system, the present tire condition is stored as a standard.
NOTE: Perform the tire pressure adjustment after the vehicle has sufficiently cooled down. If it hasn’t sufficiently cooled, increase the air pressure in the tires approximately 3-4psi (20-30kPa)
NOTE: The initialization mode can be terminated by making a short circuit between terminals No. 4 and 13 of the DLC3 connector (located under left side of instrument panel).

During initialization, the tire pressure monitor valve sub-assembly measures the inflation pressure of the tires, and registers the signals that are transmitted into the tire pressure monitor ECU at a frequency of one per minute. The initialization process is completed when the signals from the 4 tires have been received.

The initialization process is canceled if the ignition switch is turned to OFF position prior to the completion of initialization. To restart initialization, the tire pressure warning reset switch must be pressed again.

1. Set the tire pressure of all wheels to pressure specified on the tire and loading information label.
2. With the vehicle parked in a safe place, connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3 and turn ignition switch to the ON position.
3. Turn the intelligent tester ON and navigate to the “TIREPRESS” option using the on-screen prompts.
4. Within 30 seconds of turning the ignition ON, press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (located at left side of glove compartment opening) until the tire pressure warning light blinks 3 times at one-second intervals. See Fig. 4.tire pressure warning reset switch (located at left side of glove compartment opening
5. Wait 2 – 3 minutes, with the ignition ON, for the initialization process to complete. If the initialization has not been completed successfully, Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) C2177/77 is set in the tire pressure monitor ECU about 20 minutes after driving starts.
6. Confirm that initialization is complete by verifying that the correct tire pressure values are displayed on the intelligent tester.

NOTE: In winter, tire pressure may decrease due to low ambient temperatures about 1.45 psi (10 kPa) for every 18°F (10°C) drop in ambient temperature. Therefore, the tire pressure warning is more likely to operate if the tire pressures are not adjusted appropriately. If the daily temperature variation is large, pressurize the tires so that they are in the specified range under cold conditions. With this adjustment, unnecessary warnings are less likely.

Tire Pressure Sensor Registration

NOTE: When a tire, wheel, tire pressure monitor valve sub-assembly and/or tire pressure monitor ECU are replaced, the transmitter ID needs to be registered in the tire pressure monitor ECU. To perform this procedure, a Toyota hand-held tester must be used.

Register Transmitter ID

1. Set the pressure of all tires (including spare tire) to the pressure specified on the tire and loading information label.
2. Connect the hand-held tester to DLC3. See Fig. 5.Connect the hand-held tester to DLC3.
3. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
4. Select REGISTER from the UTILITY menu. See Fig. 6.REGISTER from the UTILITY menu.
5. Enter the transmitter ID(s) using the hand-held tester and transmit it to the tire pressure monitor ECU.
6. Set ID transmission condition to “ID Registration is complete”.

NOTE: If steps 4-6 are not completed within 5 minutes, the mode will return to the normal operation mode.

Confirmation Of Transmitter ID Registration

1. Set the pressure of all tires (including spare tire) to the pressure specified on the tire and loading information label.
2. Connect the hand-held tester to DLC3.
3. Turn ignition switch to ON position.
4. Select the “TIRE PRESS” by following the prompts on the hand-held tester.
5. Confirm accurately registered tire pressures for all tires. If all values are displayed correctly, registration was completed successfully.

NOTE: It may take 2-3 minutes to update the tire pressure data. If ID registration has not occurred, DTC 2171/71 will be recorded in the ECU after 51 minutes or more.

September 2007 and later. For Sequoia models from 2005 up to August 2007, see TPMS RESET PROCEDURE 7.

NOTE: Initialization is NOT required if re-inflating tires to the currently specified tire pressure.

The system will need to be initialized when tires are rotated; tires are inflated to a specification different from currently logged pressures; tire pressure sensor and/or tire pressure monitor ECU are replaced. See Initialization. When a tire pressure sensor and/or tire pressure monitor ECU are replaced, the sensor IDs must be memorized by the tire pressure monitor ECU prior to system initialization. See Registration. Registration

NOTE: The transmitter ID is written on the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter. It will be unable to be read after installing the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter on the tire and wheel. Therefore, take a note of the transmitter ID before installing the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter.

1. Set the air pressure of all wheels to the specified value
2. Turn the ignition switch off.
3. Connect Techstream to the DLC3.
4. Turn the ignition switch on (IG) and the Techstream on.
5. Enter the menu items in this order: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Utility / ID Registration
6. Perform the transmitter ID registration.
7. Input the transmitter IDs (ID1 to ID5) using the Techstream and transmit them to the tire pressure warning ECU.
8. The “ID Registration is complete” is displayed on the Techstream display.
9. Confirm transmitter ID registration.
a. Enter the menu items in this order: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Data List
b. Read the “ID Tire Inflation Pressure” values.
c. Confirm that the data of tire pressure of all tires are displayed on the screen.

NOTE: l It may take up to about 2 or 3 minutes to update the tire pressure data. If the values are not displayed after a few minutes, perform troubleshooting according to the inspection procedure for DTCs C2121/21 to C2124/24 (on models with full-sized spare, up to C2125/25).

  •   If the IDs have not been registered, DTC C2171/71 is set in the tire pressure warning ECU after 3 minutes or more.
  •  If normal pressure values are displayed, the IDs have been registered correctly.
  •  If the tire pressure values are not displayed after a few minutes, the IDs may be incorrect or the system may have a malfunction.
  •  After all IDs are registered, DTC C2126/26 (Transmitter ID not Received in Main Mode) is set in the tire pressure warning ECU and the tire pressure warning light blinks for 1 minute and then comes on. When the tire pressure warning ECU successfully receives radio waves from all the transmitters whose IDs are stored in the ECU, DTC C2126/26 is deleted and the tire pressure warning light goes off.

Initialization

NOTE: Initialization is NOT required if re-inflating tires to the currently specified tire pressure. The purpose of Initialization is to tell the TPMS ECU what the inflation pressures should be for the current set of tires. Perform Initialization if the specification changes.

Also perform initialization in the following cases:

  •  After replacement of the tire pressure warning ECU. Perform initialization after the transmitter ID registration is completed.
  •  After replacement of the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter. Perform initialization after the transmitter ID registration is completed.
  •  After rotating the tires on vehicles whose front and rear tire inflation pressure standard values are different.

1. Turn the ignition switch to ON.
2. Press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch for 3 seconds or more so that the tire pressure warning light blinks 3 times.
3. Turn the ignition switch to OFF.
4. Connect Techstream to the DLC3.
5. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the tester on.
6. Enter the following menus: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Data List.
7. Check that the initialization has been completed.
8. Confirm that the tire pressure data of all tires are displayed on the tester screen.

NOTE: l The initialization is normally completed within 2 to 3 minutes.

  • If the initialization has not been completed successfully, DTC C2177/77 is set after a vehicle speed of 8 km/h (5 mph) or more continues for 20 minutes or more.
  •  The initialization can be terminated by connecting terminals 13 (TC) and 4 (CG) of the DLC3 connector.
