Re: how do I reset the low tire warning message/light?
With the 2005 Monterey, you need to activate the system check by pushing one of the command buttons on the lower dash right of steering wheel. Have it do a system check where it will cycle through the various things that it monitors (i.e. door, lighting brake lights, ect.). It will come to the tire pressure and ask if you want to reset it, simply push and hold the reset button and the light will/should go off.

Re: how do I reset the low tire warning message/light?
All tire have be inflated to the proper pressure and the light should go out by itself. If you have a slow leak because of the light that's on your car it can be annoying. So if you have a slow leak I suggest that you get it fixed maybe you need to re-seal that tire ot maybe patched or even replace. However after all tire pressure are fix and light doesn't go off the you may need to have this vehicle placed on an ODB11 computer, by the way Auto Zone does it for free. If it a manufacturer specific code then you may have to take it to the dealer. Contact me if you need more information. Good Luck

You can't reset the tire pressure warning light (TPMS), when the pressure is adjusted or the sensor replaced (if the warning is false) the light will go out, there is no reset. Check the air pressure in all the tires, they should be about 34 PSI all around.
That is the low tire pressure warning. It can come on for several reasons. It commonly comes on in the fall as temperatures drop, the air in the tires contracts and the pressure drops. Check the air pressure and fill as needed. The tires also all need to be within 4 psi of each other.
Another common cause is that one or more tire sensor needs the battery replaced. This is not generally considered a DYI project because for most cars the tires must be removed from the rims. Finally the sensor can be damaged by hitting a curb or by adding chemicals into the tire used to seal small leaks.
As long as you check your tires visually prior to driving it is usually ok to wait to service the sensor for when you replace or rotate your tires.
Please keep in mind driving on a tire with low pressure can damage the tire, the rim or even cause delamination of the tread and cause an accident. The Firestone recall that involved Ford Explorers several years ago was from driving on tires with low pressure.
Hi, the tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure.
Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires
or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been
rotated. You can re-initialize the system by following these steps:
1. Check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure
2. Turn the ignition switch
to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on,
push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (in the glove box)
until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.
3. Now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.
4. Initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed
of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring
starts when initialization is completed.
inflate tires to correct air pressure reccommended includeing spare tire if light goes off then comes back you may have a tire leak from what im hearing its a warning light for low tire pressure happy holidays
To reset the system, press and hold the SETUP button and wait for the message
center to display "REST FOR SYSTEM CHECK". Then press the RESET button and wait
for the message center to display "HOLD RESET TO RELEARN". Press and hold the
RESET button for 3 seconds. The message "HOLD RESET TO RELEARN" and the low tire
warning lamp will flash 3 times, indicating the reset procedure is complete
With and without "Mesage Center" respectively (pretty sure)
With the engine on...
Push "Setup" button, until your driver display says something like "Press Reset for system check".
Then push Reset. The system check will start, rotating through a series of checks.
About the fifth or sixth check will be the tire pressure. The system will sound the tone (same one that starts w/the light) and It'll say something like "Check Tires Pressure" on that moment press and hold for 3 or 4 seconds Reset. When you release the Reset button It'll show "Hold Reset if tires are OK". While that's up, hold the Reset button. After 3 or 4 seconds, the tire warning light will blink 2 or 3 times and then will stop .You need to be ready for it, because you don't get very long to release.
How to reset the low tire pressure warning if the vehicle does not have the "Message Center"
Turn the ignition to the ON position, depress and Trip/odometer button (located in the instrument cluster) until "TIRE RESET" or "CHECK TIRE AND RESET" is displayed in the odometer display window. Once "TIRE RESET" or "CHECK TIRE AND RESET" is displayed, press and hold the button for three seconds. The low tire warning indicator light will flash three times as the low tire warning system begins to initialize.
That is the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system) warning light. It is letting you know that one or more of the tires is low on tire pressure. The correct tire inflation for the vehicle is located on a sticker inside the drivers front door. Make sure all four tires are inflated to that pressure.
If there all low I would bet you live in a cold weather environment. It is normal for tire pressure to drop as temperatures drop.
If one tire is low than it is probably leaking and should be checked for a repair.
Once the tire pressures have been corrected the vehicle will need to be driven for approximately 10 minutes at sustained speeds of more than 15mph.
This should automatically reset upon proper tire inflation. If you are still getting a low pressure light then the RF chip in the tire is faulty and needs to be replaced. These are rather expensive and can be purchased from dodge.
The low tire pressure light gets a signal from each tire's (including the spare) sending unit in the valve stem. If all five of the tires are reinflated to the proper pressure the light will shut its self off. If the sensor was damaged when the tire was replaced it should be replaced with a new one.
