Could be a dirty or snow packed ABS sensor made brake light come on, not 100% sure on yur vehicle. Tire pressures will lower when colder, perhaps all related to snow & cold . If in garage, let it warm up & melt some snow & maybe yur troubles will disappear. I would check tire pressures regardless, they may have been borderline low, and cold caused it to go low enough to trip monitor.

Is it ok to drive the car with the 'TPMS' light on?


The TPMS ( tire pressure monitoring system ) light comes on when one or more tires is sensed to have low pressure or one or more sensors is not producing a signal to the computer. Make sure the air pressure is good in all tires. There will be no problems operating the vehicle with this light on.

Tire pressure light comes on when tires are okay. Can I reset something myself so it doesn't?


You are right, the pressure sensors can be affected by temperature. If its below 10 Degrees there is a chance they will malfunction, I had a similar problem on my Jeep Wrangler and it required a heated garage for an immediate rectification. Alternatively, some tire shops have a computer which can communicate with the tire pressure sensors and reset the sensors once they determine that the correct air pressure has been applied to the tire.

The light came up on instrument panel. its the one looks like an exclamation mark. is ther a problem with the hydraulic brake system?


There are two symbols with an exclamation mark. The first is a oblong circle with the exclamation mark inside with ( ) on each side of the oblong circle. That symbol is for brake system warning light. Check brake fluid level, check brake pads. The other symbol is (!) and is flat on the bottom its suppose to resemble a tire, it means there is a problem with the tire monitor system, check your tire pressure, if you have low tires you will have to drive car after servicing the tires then the light should go out. Tire pressure should be on a placard on the driver door or door frame.

With the ignition on, but before you start the car, press and hold the the "Set" button located in front of the gearshift.
You should hear a tone after holding it for a few seconds. Once you hear the town you can release the button and the light should be reset.

PSI sensor light on.


yes air pressure lowers as temps go down and raises as temps go up, always make sure the tires are warm when air pressure is checked, this is very important, also the spare is monitored so check it to, since it can't be brought up to operating temp adjust the pressure lower a few pounds, around 2-4 PSI I wanted to add that 40 PSI is high unless u have a load in the truck, I recommend around 34-36 PSI for everyday conditions and most light loads.
