Default 2007 VW Jetta

I am looking at buying my son a 2007 Jetta 2.5 and the tire pressure light is on with factory rims. It is really the only thing holding up completing the deal. Car is clean with service records on carfax.

Pressure was added to the tires and there is no reset on the glove box. How do you reset on a Jetta V?

Car has newer tires.


Thanks!

Should reset by itself. Probably need sensors in wheels replaced. They last 5-7 years.

On my 2010 you had to drive it a mile or two and it would reset.

If that's the only light on the dash, consider yourself lucky. How many miles, whats the asking price?

Haha, I should have thought of this.

A VW with only the TPS light on is a rare find indeed. My dash usually looked like a Christmas tree.

It is his first car. He turns 17 this week. It has 90k on it and is very clean. I am getting for around $3 grand. We just wanted reliable transportation that I did not have to put collision insurance on. He is hell bent on a VW since I had a couple of them when he was little including a VR6 that I had turbo charged. Car is likely needed only for year because he is interested in going to a service academy after he graduates and cannot have a car at any of them.

It has the 2.5L motor.

My 07 Jetta was the only car I have ever sold before the warranty was up. Very poor craftsmanship IMO. Expect a lot of breaking plastic parts on the interior. Paint quality was poor and down here the peel from sun damage very early. My niece bought a little older one as her first car and had nothing but similar issues.

I tried to tell him to go with a toyota or honda... So did my mechanic. However I must say that this car is the cleanest we have seen in our low dollar price range..

If it does not reset than you might have a bad sensor. Or the sensors have been removed for a number of various reasons. Either way not a big deal, I wouldnt worry about it.

Depends on the state. Some state require them to be functioning

Are the rear tires a different size?

Lots of "kids" do this and the sensor will never reset. The car always thinks there is a skid/problem on these VW if one wheel is "spinning" faster
