Setting tire location

Post by Stlmco » Mon May 27, 2019 5:13 pm

I have always had a difficult time setting the TPMS locations on my 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. I installed a Pioneer MVH2300NEX one year ago along with the Maestro RR and the TOY01 installation kit. As I remember it, setting the TPMS locations was not as easy as it should have been, but I got it done. Now, after having installed all new tires, no way no how am I able to set the TPMS locations. I get to the set tire location screen where it tells me to deflate my left front tire, then nothing. On my multiple attempts I even took the tire from 36 psi to 7 psi, to no avail. I know the system is reading tire pressures correctly since it not only show the pressure in all 5 tires, but shows the lowered pressure (in the wrong location) after I have deflated a tire and then restart the unit after it doesn’t detect the TPMS. I am at my whits end as to what I may be doing wrong or what else to try. BTW, I did reflash the Maestro unit and update the firmware.

Also, not sure it factors in at all, but I can only access/use the set tire location button immediately after turning the car on. If I choose any other screens or do anything else first, the set tire location selection button is grayed out and doesn’t function.

Can you tell me what menu path you're using to get to the set tire location? There are a few ways you can get to that menu, but we recommend: Setup > OEM Setup > Maestro Features > Vehicle Info > Set Tire Location

Please ensure the ignition is at least in the ON position or you will be unable to learn tire locations. It will not learn or detect with the key in the accessory position.

I hope this helps,
