Question about 2010 Dodge Avenger SXT
I understand why the tire pressure light came on and how to fix that but I was surprised when my engine light came on at the same time. The car has only 60k miles on it. Any sight as to why the check engine light would come on?
Fix tire pressure first make sure all tires have right tire pressure.to reset low tire pressure light drive vechicle 15 miles an hour for 10 minutes when tire light goes out.then see if check engine light turn off off if not have auto zone do a code scan see what causing check engine light to turn on.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light on at idle
Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

Fixing the tire and setting all the tire at the proper pressure should turn the light off automatically. You might have to go to a Dodge Dealership.
The only reason that I can think of is the pressure sensor was damage when the tire repair was performed. To patch a tire, they need to take the tire off the rim. The pressure sensor can be easily damaged during this process if they are not carefully.
Just keep that possibility in mind.

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.

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.
