I could not find how to reset the low tire pressure monitor here and in the manual it just says put key to "on" position and pull in and out light switch 3 times. Thats a no go. Any body know what im doing wrong or how its supposed to happen.

Key On, engine off, turn the parking lights on and off three times.

Three times in five seconds. Make it last the whole five seconds. If you do it too fast it won't work.

I get it every time. Though I have noticed why others fail so I can better coach. Smile

Ahh the timing was what threw me off. It didnt say any thing in the manual about doing it for the 5 second time span.

Just something I figured out. It says to do it within five seconds, but it should say "within 3-5 seconds". When you do it at that speed, it'll feel incredibly slow. Just keep a watch nearby to make sure you hit the mark. Smile

I've never had a problem with timing, didn't matter how fast i did it she always worked. Now that doesn't work and the option is GONE from my radio, yet it still works. I have to disconnect the battery now to clear mine. Laughing Confused

Ya just disconnect it for like 1 minute. But it seems to clear the oil life system, even tho it won't clear the change oil light. I haven't seen my oil change light come up in 2 years b/c of disconnecting the battery to clear the tire light. In fact the damn tire light was on when we bought the car and was the first clue later toward my BCM.

Wierdly coincidental that this thread showed up now as I was going to ask the same question about resetting.
I had to get new tires this weekend and drove the few miles home afterward then going to work today, near the end of my ~20 commute, the "low tire pressure" light came on.
My first thought was, "Damn, brand new tires installed and already one's leaking!", but when I parked and did a walk around they all looked OK (didn't have time to actually check them with a gauge but will after work).
Question is: does the TP monitoring system automatically throw the light after a few miles of driving following getting new tires installed??? Confused

Yes, as when you get new tires the circumference will change. Check the pressures with a gauge, and assuming they're fine, just reset it.

Yes, because they roll differently in relation to each other than your old tires did.

The TPMS detects extremely small differences between how each tire is rolling in order to tell if one is low. It's sensitive enough to pick up manufacturing differences from tire to tire. Wink
