I have a RAV4 2007 with about 13,000 miles on it. A year ago in January when it went below freezing here in New Orleans the tire pressure light went on and has never gone out. I have had my car serviced at a Midas shop (run my by son-in-law) and he has tried to reset it, to no avail. It is not worth it to take it into the Toyota place and leave my car all day (which is what they do, even for an oil change) to find out why this happens. There is nothing wrong with my tires, they have been rotated twice too.
I would be interested in hearing what happens in your case.

I've heard from other forums that you need to check the tire pressure of the SPARE. For 2006+ Rav4s, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System is electronically monitored by a module on each individual tire stem, and the spare has one of these as well.
Good luck, hope this helps!

I have a Garmin Nuvi 760 GPS although it is not stuck it is damned hard to pull out.
You need to wiggle it and use lots of elbow grease. The first time I pulled it out I thought that all the guts of th12 volt plugin in my Rav4 was going to pull out.

I typed a long message, but erased it by mistake. If all five tires are with three/four lbs of 32lbs (that is, under 32 lbs), then bring the car to the dealer. He should (1) computer scan under the dash for error codes; (2) check pressure monitor on each of the five wheels for a reading 9my car failed to give a reading on one of the monitors). If a monitor has failed, he should replace (and rebalance the wheel) under waRRENTY. bY THE WAY, THE SPARE TIRE DOES LOSS PRESSURE MONTHLY, AS DO THE OTHER TIRES. .

Sometimes you can go back in your browser with the back arrow a few times and find your draft post. That's saved my bacon more than once. But you probably know that.
People do tend to ignore their spare tires. I guess the TPMS is good for that reason, even if it's irritating when the light goes on.

Hi Bankone, I checked my service records. It was the outer mirror covers that were replaced under warranty as per TSB#2833. Mine were done Apr 19, 08. I haven't noticed the wind noise since. Hope this helps.
#396 of 404 Rav4 Bluetooth
May 31, 2009 (11:51 am)
I own a 2007 Rav4, bluetooth JBL radio. If (and that is a Big IF) I can load my phones Address Book/Contacts List, will the name of an incoming caller be displayed on the radios screen? How do I get this info from the phone to the cars system? I've had a Motorola Razor and now have a Samsung Saga and neither does it automatically. I have about a week to figure this out and can exchange my existing phone free, I really would like to get this to work. (if that is how it is supposed to function).Is there a list of compatible phones somewhere?
