Resetting "service tire monitor" light on 2004 silverado

The "service tire monitor" indicator keeps coming up everytime I start my truck. I just replaced all 4 tires and need to reset this message. I understand that it's a series of steps but I don't have the manual to know what they are. Thanks.

I have a 2004 Silverado with the same problem.
After scrollng the internet for months and reading every manual I could get my hands on, I found, for me, a quick and easy way. Open the hood, remove the cover to the Underhood Fuse Block on the drivers side of the vehicle near the battery.
If you have the manual for your truck, go to page 5-126 and locate the fuse that says IPC/DIC, it is a 10 amp fuse.
Pull the fuse and start your truck or a few sceonds.
You will notice that nothing on your insterment will work.
Turn engine off and replace fuse.
After I did this, the message did not come back, and started my truck about 15 times to make sure.
It worked for me....good luck to you.

Hi, this is indicating a low tire pressure issue. The first thing to do, is check all of the pressures, according to the list on the label of the driver door. I say check all, because, if you have had the wheels off, new tires, brakes, or rotations, the relearn may not have been done, and the tire positions, may not be as described. So check all pressures, and if 1 is low, this is the issue. If they are all good, and the light persists, you need to visit the dealer, as you may have a problem with a sensor. Good luck...Coop

Resetting the tire pressure indicator on a chevy


Typically a tire pressure monitoring system uses an indirect measurement, and only measures the differences between the pressure in all of your tires. It does this by monitoring the speed at which the wheels are rotating. If one of the tires has low pressure, it will have to spin faster than the others, because the tire is partially flat, and the diameter of the tire is smaller.
If you are running different tire pressures in the front and back tires, then it might trigger the light to come on.
This might also be due to uneven tire wear or different size tires on the front and back.
Check the tire wear, and temporarily run equal tire pressure in the front and rear. It might take a few miles for the light to reset, so give it some time.

Had a low tire and service tire monitor came on


chevrolet usually resets itself after the problem is fixed. unless it is a bad sensor on one of the wheels. also check the spare some spares have a monitor in them.

Tire Pressure Monitor Fault


These tire pressure monitors are very finiky devices, but the tire pressure does drop cold, it can be a little or a lot depending on the how cold, doesn' the owners manual explain this? If you feel your local dealer does no know what to do to properly address the issue I am providing a link from the owners manual and in it is the contact info for Ford directly.

Make sure you check the spare tire too; had this problem on another model and the dealer said it was the spare which is also monitored.  Good news in case you need it one day.

(!) is the tire pressure indicator. Generally means one or more tires is significantly below the set tire pressure. The indicator on my 2004 Solara comes on and goes off all the time even though the tire pressure is the same on all four tires and I have reset the indicator.

Check the pressure on your tires and if they are all at the recommended pressure turn your ignition on and hold the tire pressure reset button in until the (!) blinks 3 times. That will set the pressure. The button is on the lower part of the dash to the left of the steering wheel.

Tire pressure monitor


32 psiis actually low for a 3500. I have a 1500 silverado that runs 44 psi cold. The tire inflation monitor , monitors inflated cirunference. Sooooo, If it isn'nt round enough, it will let you know. Driving warms up both the air and the tire,off course changing everything again. Pressure is up and tire is bigger. Ask me not how it can tell what is going on with the tire sitting still. I'm only on page 9,000, the answer is here somewher. :-) Well good luck. I do know the above is accurate._Ned_

Switch off tire pressure warning light


From the manual: First find the reset button, located below the handbrake (emergency brake) lever. The button has an "exclamation mark in a tyre" symbol.

Make sure the pressures in all tyres are what you want them to be. 35psi all 'round is good for sporty driving.

Engine off. Turn ignition to the second position (ON) but don't start the engine.

Keep the re-set button pressed until the flat tyre indicator light on the dashboard COMES ON for several seconds.

Start the engine, and drive the car normally for several minutes. This will re-set the indicator to whatever pressures you have in the tyres. Hope this helps!!
