#1 of 35 Toyota Tacoma Tire Pressure Mystery
Sep 27, 2007 (10:10 am)
I just bought a 2006 Tacoma with P265/65 R17 110S tires. Both the manual and the inside door sticker indicate that the optimal pressure is 29 psi. Yesterday the air pressure indicator on my dash lit up indicating that one of my tires is low. I checked them and none was below 29 psi. I filled them up to 32 psi and the indicator is still lit. I is the indicator malfunctioning or should I add more air?????

what does the sidewall max pressure say? i think the dealer tells you 29 psi for max ride smoothness to make up for the harsh halfton suspension. the air pressure indicaters were probably set to the tire's recommended pressure.

Did you check the spare?

I don't think so because I had the truck for a month before the tire pressure light came on and I had checked the air pressure reguarly to make sure the pressure was at 29 psi.

Because if I'm not mistaken, the spare has a sensor on it as well. If it's low, the light will stay on.

I have a 2006 tacoma with cast aluminum rims and bought some 2007 17" alloy rims, the senosrs will not work. Does anyone know where you can get a set reasonably priced. Also how do I know what the part number would be. Thanks Rob.

I plan on buying a second set of wheels for my Tacoma. How much is a set of pressure sesnsors? I am not sure what Toyota charges? is there after market sensors that can be bought? By the way its a 2007 Tacoma 2wd 4cyl that I have.

My daughter just got a flat she R&R the tire w/ spare. But the warning light will not go out. She check all four tires pres. and all ok. Can the flat tire be sending a low pres. signal?
