[SOLVED] Typre Pressure Light fault
« on: April 30, 2018, 06:58:06 PM »
Hello everyone,

TL;DR at the end.

I'm not sure if this belongs here or in electrics, apologies if not.

I had to do a long trip recently so I adjusted my tyres pressure according to the recommended pressure. I bought the car less than 2 months ago and this is the first adjustment. I did 32psi front and 29 back. I noticed all 4 tyres were inflated at about 37psi. Did my trip, had my car parked in the airport parking lot for a week and returned. Total of 220 miles driven. 5 days after I get a yellow tyre pressure warning light on my dash. I inflated the tyres this morning, 33psi front and 30psi back to compensate for the lost air when you remove the machines pump. The warning light is still on on the dash.

Is this an electric fault in the sensor? Should I inflate them back to 37psi even though its against the recommended pressure for my type of tyres? I have a 2015 Mazda 2.

TL;DR Tyre pressure warning light stays on even after tyres were inflated according to recommendations.

Thank you for your time.

TPS were set at 37psi from the dealer and when I dropped the pressure down to recommended psi, the sensors think this is very low and shows the light. Adjust the pressure, turn engine on then hold down the TPS button for 2 second then it beeps and release. 
TPS = Tyre Pressure Sensor.
