Check the tire pressure on each tire, if one is lower it will cause issues..they use nitrogen now to inflate tires at the dealer because nitrogen doesnt react to outside air pressures like service station air does..(tire will look low even tho pressure is good)..check the lowest pressure tire for wounds to sidewall or roadtread by spraying liqiud soad (like windex) on it and look for bubbles anywhere..plug or replace the tire if a leak is found..good luck

The TPMS is a pain in the you know what. Have you changed tire sizes? There could be a bad sensor and may need replaced. We continually get problems all the time with the TPMS. We have reset then they reset again.

after you have inflated the tires to the correct pressure press the tire pressure button for a few seconds untill you hear a beep sound .that indicates the tire pressure has been reset. hope that helps

Shouldn't really be necessary to do anything to reset it if the system is operating properly.
"The system will automatically update and the TPM warning lamp will extinguish once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 15 mph (25 km/h) to receive this information."
"A system fault can occur by any of the following scenarios:
1) Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2) Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3) Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings.
4) Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5) Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM sensors."
Also, if you have the premium TPM system, the spare tire being low could trigger it, or with either the base or premium system, if you have a flat and change to a spare, the original flat tire could keep it from re-setting. And of course, a faulty sensor could be the problem.
There is a re-setting tool, but that should only be needed if the tire positions are changed (like if you rotate your tires), and that's only so that it can accurately tell you which tire is low, as opposed to turning off a warning light.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Park the Dodge Caliber on a flat paved or concrete surface. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the side opposite the headlight you are replacing. In other words, if you are replacing the left headlight, turn the wheel all the way to the right. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch.

well it depends, if you have just reset the tire pressures, the light should go off by itself, if it doesn't then you have a bad tire pressure sensor. If you have replaced the sensor, it must be programmed into the WCM by the dealership.
