TPMS stays on bur tire pressure is correct

In some cases, the TPMS warning light may come and stay on even though the tires don’t need any more air, meaning they are all inflated to 35 PSI. The most common problems that can trigger the low tire pressure warning light are:

  • TPMS light on a Mazda could come on due to a defective TPMS sensor.
  • You are using a spare tire.

If you are experiencing any of the cases above, the TPMS tire pressure light will stay on even if you add air to your tires. Check the size of the tires. Make sure they all have a TPMS sensor installed.

If the tires are inflated and have a sensor, the most likely cause is a defective TPMS sensor (a common problem) or a malfunction with the TPMS system, which is not a very common problem.

TPMS light flashing

If the TPMS light is flashing or it won’t go off, it could be due to a drained TPMS sensor battery or a TPMS system problem.

You can use a TPMS diagnostic scanner to troubleshoot the Mazda TPMS system and retrieve the error codes. This will allow you to troubleshoot the TPMS light yourself.

    The article should specify models. For example this is the procedure for 2016 and older Mazda CX-5s but is NOT applicable to 2017 and new Mazda CX-5s.
