SOURCE: Drivers Information Center in a 2005 Chevy Impala

Turn the key to the on position (not start) with the radio off. Wait 10 seconds. Press the "display" button on the radio and hold for 10 to 12 seconds. the radio display will light up . Press "display" and "1" to select functions.

This was not tested or confirmed by me, but my dad has a 2005 Impala and this is what he told me. Let me know if it works or not, and I can try to investigate it more if needed.

SOURCE: resetting "service tire monitor" light on 2004 silverado

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.

The torque converter clutch circuit may be at fault. The best way to determine the problem is to have a scanner/computer to read check engine codes.

SOURCE: How do I restart the service tire monitor system

Its in the manuel but you can turn the key till its on but not started, hold down unlock and lock at the same time for a bit, it will honk and start the process, you have to go to each tire in a certain way thats in the book or on the dash when i tells you and let air outta your tire for about two seconds, you have two mins. to complete each step it tells you so don't rush, once its done it will honk or beep twice telling you it is outta the process. Should be good...if not discount tire resets all that for free. If you have after market wheels or tires you have to switch the valve stems from old ones to new ones cause they contain the sensor needed to reset TPMS(Tire pressure monitoring system)....Discount will do it for $400 bucks but i recommend going somewhere to get them switched out for cheap and then take it to discount and let them reset it for free....saves money. I found this out after putting 26in. rims on my truck.

How to reset the check tire pressure indicator


Using the Driver Information Center (DIC)
Important: After resetting, the tire pressure monitoring (TPM) system requires up to 8 km/h (5 miles) of flat, smooth road straight line driving in each of the 4 speed ranges to complete the calibration process. For further information, refer to Tire Pressure Monitor Description and Operation . If the TPM system does not reset, refer to Driver Information Center (DIC) Switch Inoperative .
  1. Set all tire pressures to the recommended kPa/psi. Refer to Vehicle Certification, Tire Placard, Anti-Theft, and Service Parts ID Label .
  2. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  3. Press the vehicle information button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM PRESS (down/left arrow) SWITCH TO RESET is displayed.
  4. If the system is being reset due to a low tire pressure condition, press and hold the down/left arrow button until TIRE INFLATION MONITOR SYSTEM HAS BEEN RESET is displayed. If the system is being reset due to a tire rotation, press and hold the down/left arrow button for 5 seconds.
  5. Release the down/left arrow button and TIRE PRESSURE NORMAL is displayed.

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

If the light that is coming on is the service tire monitor then this has nothing to do with the tires being low it means there is a problem with the tire monitoring system and they should check for codes.The low tire pressure or check tire pressure are if the tires are low and need air.There is a service bulletin on this it is 07-03-16-004B.If they can`t find the problem they should be calling technical assistance for help.This is a support group from general motors that advises them on what steps to take if they can`t find the problem on their own.I have not had any questions here for this concern.But I had a few when I was at the dealership.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I just changed the oil in my 2002 Impala LS and filled the tires to the proper psi but the message center still reads both messages.....change engine oil..........tire pressure low. What do I need to do to...


ok this can be done 2 different ways 1 , with the radio controls , should be in the owners manual , or the easier way , to reset the oil maintinence light , turn the key to the ON position , engine OFF , depress the gas pedal to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds and it will reset ,

now the tire monitor system , same deal should be in the owners manual , and done with the radio controls , or the easier way , turn key to ON position , engine OFF , cycle the parking lights 3 times within 5 seconds , (turn on - turn off = 1 cycle)

pretty cool huh? but make sure your tires were properly inflated before you reset the tire monitoring system .
