I had the same problem, and since I couldn't find the answer here, I had to figure it out myself. Luckily, I was able to find this site again, so here's what worked for me.

Push the Setup button three times, until your driver display says something like "Press Reset for system check".

Then push Reset. The system check will start, rotating through a series of checks.

About the fifth or sixth check will be the tire pressure. It'll say something like "Hold Reset if tires are OK". While that's up, hold the Reset button. After 3 or 4 seconds, the tire warning light will click off. You need to be ready for it, because you don't get very long.

Sorry if I don't have the prompts exactly right. I remembered them the best I could, and since I held in the Reset button, I don't get the one about the tires being OK any more.

How to reset the low tire pressure warning if the vehicle does not have the "Message Center"

  • turn the ignition to the ON position,
  • depress and Trip/odometer button (located in the instrument cluster) until "TIRE RESET" or "CHECK TIRE AND RESET" is displayed in the odometer display window.
  • Once "TIRE RESET" or "CHECK TIRE AND RESET" is displayed, press and hold the button for three seconds.

    The low tire warning indicator light will flash three times as the low tire warning system begins to initialize.

2007 Toyota 4runner Inflation warning light?

All the tires have a sensor to measure tire pressure. If any of the tires (including the spare) are low in tire pressure the light will be on. Just check all tires. Don't know why theres a sensor for the spare but after you check the pressure to make sure that it's correct the warning light should go out. If it still is on and all your tires have the correct pressure then I'd take it to the dealer to have it checked out.
