Default Tire Pressure Warning Light Stays On

The tire pressure warning light came on in my daughters 2006 Prius. I added pressure on 2 tires without having access to a working gauge. I then lowered their pressure to recommended levels and checked the other 2 tires. They were ok.

The problem is that the indicator light is still on. Any suggestions?

You may need to reset the pressure sensing system once all the tires are inflated to the desired psi.

Resetting the Pressure Sensing System......Is that procedure covered in the Owners Manual?

Yes. The switch is located under the steering column to the right of the smartkey switch.
