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

    I use nitrogen in my 2010 Acadia,the sensor kept going off,telling certain tires were low,and it was only a few weeks old,called dealer and was told to use nitrogen,cause air has molecules which causes tires to change pressure with heat,causing the light to go off and think air is low,so I put nitrogen in and light doesn't come on anymore.

SOURCE: 2007 yukon tpms keeps blinking to check tire pressure

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.

SOURCE: How to turn tire pressure light off.

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.

SOURCE: how to change head light bulbs on a dodge caliber

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.

  • Step 2 Place a wheel chock behind one of the rear tires.
  • Step 3 Open the hood. This is to allow some light to reach down into the engine compartment.
  • Step 4 Raise the front quarter panel of the side you need to replace the headlight on with the floor jack and place the jack stand under the front frame rail on that side.
  • Step 5 Remove the fender well plugs using the plastic plug puller tool. You do not have to remove the entire fender well cover, but the more plugs you remove, the more access it will give you to the headlight assembly.
  • Step 6 Unplug the headlight switch. Make sure you are unplugging the headlight which will be the inboard plug.
  • Step 7 Turn the headlight bezel a quarter turn counterclockwise and extract the bulb and bezel.
  • Step 8 Insert the new headlight into the bezel, being careful not to touch the glass bulb.
  • Step 9 Insert the bezel and headlight into the headlight assembly and turn a quarter turn clockwise to lock it into place.
  • Step 10 Plug the wire connector into the headlight. This would be a good time to get up and go test the light to make sure it's working.

    SOURCE: Reset the Tire Pressure Warning light.

    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.

    Security light and tire pressure light flashs while driving my 2009 jeep wrangler


    the security light warns you that there is a safety problem and check your guages. Just check the tire pressure and add where it needs it. this should fix your problem. If it continues often then you probably have a slow leak and need tire repair

    How do i reset the low pressure tire warning light on a 2008 dodge caliber?


    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.
