Air pressure in the tires drops when it is cold (as much a 5 PSI), as you drive they heat up and that makes them fall within the correct pressure limits to turn off the low tire pressure warning. I suggest you get an accurate tire gauge and air your tires up to 32 PSI all around.
Hello: I don't think you can remove that feature. It is part of the remote door lock module. You might try installing a Remote door lock module that does not have tire pressure monitor option but I have no experience that it would work, plus it would have to be programed.
If just the tires were changed and you still have the original rims on the vehicle then you may just have a bad pressure sensor in on of the rims or the system may need to be reprogammed to recognize the sensors. If the RIMS were also changed then the replacement rims may not have the pressure sensors in them in which case the light will always be on since the system is always looking for pressure sensor signals that aren't there. If the rims were replaced and don't have the sensors you can purchase and install new sensors in these rims and program them so the system will recognize them.
You can take it to a tire store and they can reset it provided they have the tool to do it which most bigger shops do or you can take it to the dealership to reset it. Could be one of the sensors itself. You need to check your air pressures in your tires first though. 5 lbs of pressure one way or the other can set them off.
bring tire pressures to spec . Drive vehicle for approx 20 miles. Computer will reprogram.....hopefully. If not, air pressure sensors will have to be tested with any faulty ones replaced by a tire installer.
Let me understand this.. I ask you guy's a question and before you send me the answer, you want to charge me. Then you ask if I resolved the problem and if so, tell you how I did it. Well I did resolve it and I would be more than happy to tell you how. $29.95 with get my detailed response.
You can follow this to reset it. Ignition ON, initiate the TPM Learn Mode using one of the following procedures:
On vehicles equipped with keyless entry, simultaneously press the keyless entry transmitters lock and unlock buttons until a double horn chirp sounds indicating the Learn Mode has been enabled. The left front turn signal will also be illuminated.
On vehicles not equipped with keyless entry, press and release the driver information center (DIC) INFO button until the TIRE LEARN message appears on the DIC display. Press and hold the SET/RESET button until a double horn chirp sounds indicating the Learn Mode has been enabled. The left front turn signal will also be illuminated.
Increase/decrease the tire pressure for 8-10 seconds then wait for a horn chirp. The horn chirp may occur before or up to 30 seconds after the 8-10 second pressure increase/decrease time period has been reached. Once the horn chirp has sounded, the sensor information is learned and the turn signal in the next location to be learned will illuminate. After the horn chirp has sounded and the right front turn signal is illuminated, repeat step 2 for the remaining 3 sensors in the following order: 3.1. Right front
3.2. Right rear
3.3. Left rear
When the left rear sensor has been learned and a double horn chirp has sounded, the learn process is complete and the RCDLR exits the learn mode. Ignition OFF, adjust all tires to the recommended pressures
