Ok i'm just a little lost because i'm used to most cars where if you press like for example the "info" button and scroll through it, one of the information displays would be like an outline of your car telling you how much air is in each tire. But to my knowledge at the moment there is no such screen. So I was wondering how do you know which tire is low on air our not besides just the warning light coming up? Is there any other way the car tells you like if you just want to check just because without manually doing it?

No...there is no indication of which tire it is. The TPMS will alert you when there is an issue with any of the 4 tires.

I get this on my CX-5 also. I have mine set under settings to "remind" me to check tire pressure every "1 month". The message will pop up on the 15th day per the owner's manual - The message is a bit misleading as it does not indicate that the tire pressure is low but that you simply need to check it per the time interval set.

Also the DSC HU/CM now has "misuse prevention logic" so simply resetting the TPMS when you trully have a low tire pressure warning light on will no longer cut it.

.

Is this valid for the Mazda 6 also? Can the 'reminder' interval be set under settings like you described above?
Also, when you get the reminder, how do you turn the light off? just hit the reset button lie usual?

Also what's the difference between the WARNING light and the REMINDER light? or are they the same?


My wife said the tpms light came on tonight, and she stopped and checked pressures - all 4 same pressure- 36 PSI. she hit reset and it went away...

this has happened more than once...I wonder if it's the reminder...

This is actually a service reminder setting within the info setting from your steering wheel controls. You can set a service reminder to remind you to check your tire pressure, oil change, etc. I am not 100% sure how to re set it. I'm guessing when you thumb through the settings from the steering wheel control, it will come to a screen that says warning tire pressure with a back arrow. I think you have to push and hold the info button until it beeps and clears much like you do to clear the average gas mileage. I ended up going into the settings menu and checking to see what it was set for and when I backed out of the menu the warning had re set.

Please read my post entirely for a fix that worked for me.

I have had the same yellow warning light for TPMS come on and after reading all the posts on it there was 1 thing I over looked. I thought my tires were low and they were but just by 5 psi and not enough to trip the TPMS warning but I still could not get the error to go away. After using the reset button on dash and it still not going away I found that you have to go through the display menus completely and fins the last option in the TPMS menu and turn off the reminder or reset the reminder time frame until it reminds you to check TPMS again. This is not a warning I was getting but just a TPMS reminder to check the pressure in the tires that can be easily confused with a low tire pressure.

I hope this helps others who search for TPMNS error or TPMS warning.

For everyone knowledge, I just blew a tire on my GT and when it was taken off the rim I realized that there is no TPMS sensor on the wheels like other cars have. From what I read the car just uses the ABS sensor to compare wheel speed between all 4 corners and if one is turning at a higher speed that others while the car is going straight meaning a lower diameter, it flags the tire as TP low. So the car has no way of measuring air pressure inside the tire just the difference between them based on speed.
Now I am having a very hard time finding a Dunlop 225-45-19.
