    your mechanic reset the alarm when he serviced your car. the alarm came back after you drove it for awhile. the problem is probably a faulty valve stem in one of your tires. especially if the tire pressure reads good. the tire valve has a transmitter in it that reports a problem. these valves have to be programmed when installed and take a special test set to program correctly. you mechanic should be able to troubleshoot the TPM system on your car or tell you where to take it.

The pressure indicator will go out when the tire pressure is up to what it should be. This means that if your tire was filled to 36psi and it should be 38psi, since it's close indicator will go out. Remember that heat expands and cold contracts. When it started to get cold the pressure dropped inside your tire to the point where it set off the indicator. Look at the side wall of your tire just above the rim. You will see writing there that will tell you what the maximum air pressure should be for your tire. You will be safe filling the tire to within 2psi of maximum pressure. If you continue to experience indicator light on, this will mean a leak in your tire, possibly due to a puncture in thread, or a leak between tire and wheel. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Testimonial: "Good ans Dan.But there is no leak and the press is higher than called for and holding if therewas a leak it would show in that wheel"

    That one may be fine now,but check the other three tires, and follow the same idea.

SOURCE: steering wheel wobble between 5-30 mph. and again at over 50mph

possibly bad brake hose or twisted/kinked causing pull. wobble may be bad/worn axle shaft on right side.some right axles are 2 or3 piece design.carrier support bolts maybe missing but more likely joint is worn. look for boots that have split or cracked&leaked grease.

SOURCE: 2000 dakota 4.7 v-8 codes p0300 p0303 p0304 p0307

Catalytic converters on the Dakota's were a recall issue from 1999-2003 models.
I had a 99 and a 2001 and had the same problem on both.(3 times on the 99 and once on the 01)
You should also check the speed sensor on the rear axle.
The neutral safety switch and the EGR valve.

If I were you,I would start with the Cat and EGR,then check the other stuff if you still have issues.

SOURCE: pcm not ready, NYS inspection, 1997 Saturn SL-1

Performing a GM OBDII Driving cycle:

  1. Cold Start. In order to be classified as a cold start the engine coolant temperature must be below 122°F (50°C) and within 11°F (6°C) of the ambient air temperature at startup.
    Do not leave the key in prior to the cold start or the heated oxygen sensor diagnostic may not run.
  2. Idle. The engine must be run for two and a half minutes with the air conditioner on and rear defroster on. The more electrical load you can apply the better. This will test the O2 heater, Passive Air, Purge "No Flow", Misfire, and - if closed loop is achieved- Fuel Trim.
  3. Accelerate. Turn off the air conditioner and all the other loads and apply half throttle until 55mph (88km/hr) is reached. During this time the Misfire, Fuel Trim, and Purge Flow diagnostics will be performed.
  4. Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 55mph (88km/hr) for 3 minutes. During this time the O2 response, air Intrusive, EGR, Purge, Misfire, and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed.
  5. Decelerate. Let off the accelerator pedal. Do not shift, touch the brake or clutch. It is important to let the vehicle coast along gradually slowing down to 20 mph (32km/hr). During this time the EGR, Purge and Fuel Trim diagnostics will be performed.
  6. Accelerate. Accelerate at 3/4 throttle until 55-60mph (88-96 km/hr). This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 3.
  7. Hold Steady Speed. Hold a steady speed of 55mph (88km/hr) for five minutes. During this time, in addition to the diagnostics performed in step 4, the catalyst monitor diagnostics will be performed. If the catalyst is marginal or the battery has been disconnected, it may take 5 complete driving cycles to determine the state of the catalyst.
  8. Decelerate. This will perform the same diagnostics as in step 5. Again, don't press the clutch or brakes or shift gears.

SOURCE: Error message "svc tire monitor"

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.

The tire pressure display is still on my dash even though I put air in my tires. How can I remove it?


If your tire pressures are all ok and the light is still on the dashboard, either one of two things is wrong ( assuming your tire pressure gauge is giving you correct data)

1 - A battery or one of the tire sensors (4) in a tire is mis functioning

2 - Something wrong with car electronic monitoring system.

Check with Hyundai if there is some sort of "reset" that you can perform. On my 2011 Sonata once I correct the pressure the light goes off. U might have to go to the dealer. Just hope your dealer is better than mine.

Well, if it is broken because some water may have gotten in there your only choice is to replace the unit since repair is not cost effective.

And whatever you do, stay away from the dealer. Check out Crutchfield. Crutchfield Car Stereo Speakers Home Theater Pro Audio 4k TV

Sign keeps coming up to check tyre pressure. But tyres ok


Exactly what model? You have to set the tire pressures and then either drive the car (if ABS-type TPMS) and reset the TPMS display or reset the tire pressure monitoring system memory through the MMI.
Read your owners manual, I can't give you more specifics without a car year and model.

2013 chevy cruze. How do you reset tire rotation schedule?


If you are referring to the tire light on the dash, that is a LOW TIRE indicator. Tire pressure needs to be adjusted to proper air pressure and then drive the vehicle for about 2 mile and the light should go out.

A dash lite on my 2009 hyundai sonata came on while was driving. if you can tell me what it is TPMS


stands for Tire Pressure Monitor System= TPMS. check all tire pressures (when cold if possible) and adjust them according to the tire pressure sticker on the drivers door jamb,glove box,another door jamb or center console compartment(inside).even check the spare tire pressure. the lite comes on to tell you that either 1 or more tires is considerably lower or higher in pressure than the rest. once u adjust the pressures correctly,look in the owners manual as to how to reset/shut off the light. on alot of cars if u drive the car for awhile the light will reset and go off .hope this helps.

Tire pressure hazard light.


good afternoon and welcome to fixya.
your problem is relatively easy to fix, stop the car by a tire barn or discount tire and have them reset the tpms sensor that is located under the valve stem, it is not working properly, or it is broke, you may need to have them check them after they reset them, if the light comes back on. there is a computer inside your tire that tells you when a tire is low, if the sensor is bad they normally run between 30-100 dollars depending on where you get it at. that should fix your problem, good luck and let me know
