The owners manual will not give the following information but chapter 3 around pges 40 -49 will tell you how to get into tire monito learning section. 1. Take all four valvestem caps off. 2. Find a tool such as a small diameter philips screwdriver that will work to let air out of the valvestem. A common aluminum 1/8" rivet (round end into valve stem) works very well. 3. Add air so that the tire pressures are all 40+ psi (do not exceed the tire's max. inflation rating on the sidewall). 4. Turn key to on position. 5. Apply parking brake. 6. Press and hold lock/unlock down at the same time (for about 3 seconds) on the key fob until the horn honks and left front park light flashes. Without keyless or remtoe entry fob use the Driver Information buttons on the left of sterring wheel. Press and hold bothe DIC and reset button at the same time for abot 10 seconds this will bring up the personal menu use DIC button to get to Tire monitor menu press and hold reset button untill horn honks and left front light flahes then continue with step 7. 7. Start at the LF tire. 8. Let air out for 4 seconds - count it out (one one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand). 9. Wait for about 15 seconds* for the honk (sometimes it'll honk right away). 10. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RF tire. 11. Repeat 7 and 8 for the RR tire. 12. Repeat 7 and 8 for the LR tire. 13. With all four now done, the system will give it's final multi-honk completion note. 14. Use a quality gauge to set your final pressures (a good gauge will exactly match the sensor readings). 15. Replace all four valvestem caps. *If you've waited fifteen seconds for the honk and nothing has happened. Don't panic - Simply repeat 8 and 9 again as there is a two minute window to do each tire sensor.

First make sure you have the right amount of tire pressure in all four tires. Use the specification that is mounted on your door jamb. I believe it is 32 psi. Drive for up to 20 miles. Light should turn off. If light doesn't turn off most liekly you have a bad tire or bad tpms sensor. You will have to take to chevy dealer for tpms diagnosos or some tires shops have tpms sensors scanners

The low tire pressure warning should go out if you set all of the tire pressures to the correct pressure, then drive the vehicle for about a mile. You should not have to "relearn" the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) unless the tires are (A.) rotated into different positions or (B.) There is a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.
For more information, you can read the information in your Owner's Manual. Here is a link to a pdf version 2009 Cobalt owners manual. (The information and procedures are the same for 2008 - 2010 Cobalts) The TPMS section starts on page 5-64

There are two different ways to relearn your Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). One is with a TPMS scan tool (this is the preferred method) and the other is the manual method (pain in the "you-know what", but requires no special tools or equipment).
To use the manual method, set the parking brake. Enter into TPMS RELEARN using the Driver Information Center (DIC) controls. (SEE Owner's Manual)
When you have successfully entered TPMS RELEARN, the horn will chirp and the left front turn signal will illuminate. Increase or decrease the tire inflation pressure on the left front tire for 8 to 10 seconds. The horn will "chirp", indicating that the left front tire pressure sensor has been relearned and the turn signal at the right front will illuminate. Repeat the process for the right front tire. The horn will chirp and the right rear turn signal will illuminate indicating that the right front tire has been relearned and now you must now repeat the process at the right rear tire. Then you will have to repeat this a fourth time at the left rear. When the left rear tire has been relearned, the horn will sound a "double chirp" indicating that the relearn process has successfully completed.
At this time, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position and adjust all of the tire pressures to the specification printed on the tire certification label inside the drivers door/door pillar area.

Testimonial: "by the time i got the answer on fixya i already stopped by a chevy dealership. He also said the method that the manual shows to do the reset for tire monitor is a pain. He resat it with the proper tool and said that no matter if the manual says to reset the tire monitor system when putting air in tires don't do it. It will automaticall reset itself. Thanks"
