How To Reset Tpms After Tire Rotation

TPMS (Traction Control Module) is a system found in most cars that monitors the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. TPMS is used to warn the driver when the tire pressure is low or when the pressure in a tire has changed significantly from what it’s supposed to be. If you have ever noticed that your car seems to shake more when turning or braking, this is probably because your TPMS has been reset. Tpms resets can be caused by many things, but the most common is when the wheel nut loose or rotated while the car was off. In order to prevent your TPMS from resetting, follow these steps: 1. Remove both wheels and jack up the car 2. Loosen wheel nut by turning it counterclockwise with a wrench 3. Rotate wheel one full turn (counter-clockwise if driving right-hand drive) so that the lugnuts are at least finger-width apart on both sides of the wheel hub 4. Tighten wheel nut by turning it clockwise with a wrench

What is TPMS?

TPMS is a tire pressure monitoring system. It monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are low or when the air pressure changes. TPMS can also help you find a flat tire if it’s been lost.

How To Reset TPMS After Tire Rotation

If your car has TPMS, it will usually reset automatically when you rotate the tires. However, if you have a flat tire, there is a chance that the TPMS will not reset. In this case, there are three ways to reset the TPMS:
1) Use the car’s manual override feature.
2) Use a pushbutton adapter.
3) Reset the TPMS using a computer.


After rotating your tires, it’s important to reset your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). To do this, first make sure all of the tires are at the same pressure. Next, depress the TPMS inflation valve on one tire until it clicks into place. Finally, release the valve and wait two minutes for the TPMS sensor to warm up before inflating the other tire. Do not over-inflate the tires; under-inflation can cause premature wear and tear on your equipment. Thanks for reading!
