2010 Toyota Corolla LE: Low Pressure Tire Indicator Light came

This answer was rated:

I have a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE- 3282 miles the first of Jan., 2011. Low Pressure Tire Indicator Light came on and stayed on. Door pillar placard says recommended cold tire inflation of 30 psi. I checked all 4 tires cold with a tire gauge & got 32 psi & the spare & got 70 psi. I drove car and warning light stayed on. I took the car to a Toyota dealer this morning. About 10 minutes later I was told the warning light was off, a tire had had low pressure. I told them I had checked with a tire gauge and all 4 were at 32psi & aske the current tire pressure. I was told that they filled the tires to 40 psi (max. recommended on tire is 44 psi). When I questioned them about putting the 40 psi in tires when 30is recommended I was told it was OK. I question using 40 psi when 30 is recommended and all worked when brand new & warning light has not coming on and staying on. Any thoughts?
Hi . Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. 40m is to much lower them down to the suggested pressure on the door sticker or the owners manual
