HOW TO RESET THE TPMS LIGHT ON TOYOTA FJ CRUISER

 

FJ Cruiser 2007-2011 TPMS Reset

 

TPMS RESET

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

NOTE: It is necessary to register the transmitter ID in the tire pressure warning ECU when replacing the tire pressure warning valve, transmitter and/or tire pressure warning ECU. The transmitter ID is written on the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter. You will not be able to read the ID numbers after installing the tire pressure warning valve and transmitter on the tire and wheel. Take a note of the 7 digit number (transmitter ID) before starting registration. When the tire pressure warning light does not go off, or when it comes on during driving, check tire pressure (including spare tire) and adjust as necessary. The warning light should go out within a few minutes.

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. Turn ignition switch OFF.
3. Connect a Techstream to the DLC3.
4. Turn ignition switch ON.
5. Turn Techstream ON.
6. Enter the following menus: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Utility / ID Registration.
7. Follow the procedures displayed on the screen.
8. Confirm the ID numbers for all tires (including the spare tire) are displayed on the screen.
NOTE: l It may take up to 2 or 3 minutes to update the tire pressure data. If the values are not displayed after a few minutes, see the appropriate manufacturer service information.

  • 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 stays 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.

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 a Techstream to the DLC3.
3. Turn ignition switch ON.
4. Turn Techstream ON.
5. Enter the following menus: Chassis / Tire Pressure Monitor / Data List.
6. Observe the “ID Tire Inflation Pressure” values.
7. Confirm the ID numbers for all tires (including the spare tire) are displayed on the screen. If all values are displayed correctly, registration was completed successfully.

 

 


FJ Cruiser 2012-2014 TPMS Reset

 

TPMS RESET

NOTE: For Sequoia, this procedure applies to vehicles from 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.
