First generation Highlanders use indirect means to monitor the 4 tires(not including spare) via the anti-lock wheel sensors measuring rotational differences. There are no direct tire pressure sensors except for 2008 2nd generation Highlanders.

I just had 4 new tires put on- they said I needed them and I said okay without researching what type and price- my hurried lifestyle-Goodyear Integrity I believe...have no idea if they are good ( $152. each) or not but one day later and the tire pressure light is on! So what does that light mean if not direct tire pressure? 2004 Highlander.

I also have 2004 Highlander. One of the tires may not have same pressure as the others, check it and reset light according to owner's manual.

The pre-2007 Highlanders can only warn you that a tire is low, and, if I'm not mistaken, don't indicate which tire is actually low. Just that one or more are. They do not provide any actual pressure measurements.
The 2008 Highlanders actually report the measured pressure for each individual tire, including the spare, i.e. 38 psi, 38 psi, 39 psi, 38 psi, and 40 psi.
