The tire pressure sensor on my vehicle is not necessarily easy to reach, but I know that I can reset the tire pressure sensor on my own with a couple simple steps. This is a really basic process I am going to describe to you, and I will make sure that you understand what is going so that you can do it in your car. Every car is a little bit different, but you can get this done pretty fast in any car when you are ready.
Where Are Your Fuses?
The fuses in your vehicle are going to match all kinds of different electronic components on your car. The sensor is electric, and you are going to have to get out your user manual to make sure that you know which fuse is going to be connected to the sensor. You can slowly pull out the sensor fuse, and you will notice that the light on your dash is going to go dark. You need to check the fuse next because you cannot just put it back in.
Check The Fuse
A blown fuse is going to be black and destroyed on the inside. You can see the difference when you take a look at the fuse, and you will be able to decide if the fuse needs to be replaced. Most people are going to replace the fuse because that is much easier since you have already pulled it out. Everyone who is going to keep the fuse in needs to be prepared to replace it in the future because it might be close to going.
Replace The Fuse
You can replace the fuse, and you will notice the light on your dash may flicker quickly. The light should stay off if you have correctly reset the fuse, and you will have to get the tires looked at if the light does not go off. Most of the time, the light is going to go off when you replace the fuse, and you will be ready to go on your way. Someone who has serious problems with the weather setting off the sensor are going to need to pull it out and put it back in every time it happens.
The fuse in your car is going to help you reset the pressure sensor, and you will be able to get this work done without actually getting to the sensor yourself. The sensor is going to be very hard to reach in some cars, and you do not want to put yourself in the position of trying to replace it on your own. That is not very wise, and you are going to waste time when you could just replace the fuse.
