Hi,

 

Unfortunately, this means that there is a malfunction in one of the tires sensors or in the control module. The only way to find the fault is with a special scanner that can read the control module. You will have to visit your dealership for this.

 

2007 Tacoma

TIRE PRESSURE WARNING LIGHT

This light warns that the tire inflation pressure of one or more of your tires (including the spare tire) is low. The light comes on when the ignition key is turned to the "ON" position. It goes off after a few seconds. This indicates that the tire pressure warning system is functioning properly.

If the light comes on, stop the vehicle in a safe place as soon as possible and check that the tire inflation pressure of all tires (including the spare tire) is as specified on the tire and loading information label. The light should go off a few minutes after the tire pressure is adjusted.

If the warning light comes on after blinking for 1 minute, the tire pressure warning system is malfunctioning.
