Resetting Mini Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)

Below are instructions for resetting Mini Cooper TPMS.

Resetting Mini Cooper (2002-2006) TPMS

Please note these steps are also relevant to convertible models up to and including 2008. Follow these simple steps to reset the Mini Cooper (2002-2006) TPMS:

  1. Before you reset the system, the first step is to set all tyre pressures to the manufacturer’s recommended levels. These vary depending on the exact model of Mini you have and the exact tyre size, but correct tyre pressures for your vehicle are found on a sticker in the driver’s door opening
  2. Find the reset button positioned just underneath the handbrake
  3. Turn the ignition to position 2, then press and hold the reset button until a yellow indicator on the dash lights up for a few seconds
  4. The vehicle will now recalibrate the TPMS on the next drive. After a few miles of driving, the system will recognise the newly-installed or adjusted tyres and reset the tyre pressures to be monitored accordingly

Resetting Mini Cooper (2007-) TPMS

Please note that these steps exclude convertible models, as above. Follow these simple steps to reset the Mini Cooper (2007-) TPMS:

  4. Press and hold the button until the display says “RESETTING”
  5. The vehicle will now recalibrate the TPMS on the next drive. After a few miles of driving, the system will recognise the newly-installed or adjusted tyres and reset the tyre pressures to be monitored accordingly
