Camry tire indicator light on 2012

My 2012 camry tire light stays on. Normally it comes on if one tire is low. I check the digital tire pressure on the dash. But now, I am getting no readings on any of the tires. I tried pushing the reset button which did not help. If one battery is bad, would the others give a reading?

I can't say for sure, but I would expect the others to still give you a reading. You might swing by a shop that has the little specialty scanner that they use to interrogate the sensors to check for dead ones. Most tire stores should have them.

Have the batteries been replaced in the sensors?

The batteries have not been replaced except possibly with new tires. I felt all 4 would not go at once, even though could be up to 10 years old. Checking the spare today but it is a donut and there is no spot on readout for it.

Dead battery would be the common failure, but all at once would be quite a coincidence.

I think that your '12 is like my wife's '13 and only tells you that a tire is low, but not which one. I would bet that 1 dead battery would do exactly what you say. The tire store suggestion is how I'd go. That one TPM will probably cost you $80-$100!

It gives the actual readout of each tire on the touch screen. Must be a loose wire since it started working again.

Bad batteries. Out of 2 Toyotas and one Lexus we owned and own, they all went out circa 10 years of use. When even 1 goes bad, there is no point to pay to replace just one, as the rest will follow the suite soon enough.
Best deal around here, in PacNW, is Discount Tire. Fraction of what lesSchwab asks.

In December 2021 the TPM light on my 2012 Lexus came on and stayed on even after I checked and increased the pressure in all 5 tires. Previous winters the light went off after adjusting the pressures. I had my service station scan the sensors and he reported one non-responsive and two low-battery. I decided at that time to wait until I needed tire replacement to have the sensors serviced. I checked tire pressure regularly. Sometime in the spring the TPM light went off. Again, I checked tire pressure regularly.

In December 2022 the light came on again due to seasonal temperature change. I checked all tires and increased pressure. The light remains on. I plan to check pressure regularly until spring and have the sensors serviced when tire replacement is needed.
