Question about 2005 Mercury Monterey
2004 Monterey: had tons of slow leaks with the original tires, kept having to take to dealer to repair and re-set the dash warning.
Just about a month ago I got sick of it, and purchased 4 new tires (not the same kind as original)....better/quieter ones too. The dealer forgot to re-set the low tire warning, and it's been driving me crazy. Wondering how to re-set myself ??? Sure, I could take in to dealer and have them do it, but now it's the principle of it - I'm determined to do this myself. Thanks for any advice. MEL
Push the Setup button three times, until your driver display says something like "Press Reset for system check".
Then push Reset. The system check will start, rotating through a series of checks.
About the fifth or sixth check will be the tire pressure. It'll say something like "Hold Reset if tires are OK". While that's up, hold the Reset button. After 3 or 4 seconds, the tire warning light will click off. You need to be ready for it, because you don't get very long.

I've had this problem with my Monterey mini-van as well as my Jetta. I've been told that the problem is a build up in the interface between the tire and the aluminum rim. A corrosion effect. When I replaced the tires on my Jetta the tire dealer cleaned the rim and I have not had a problem so far with that car. On the mini-van, I gave it a shot of fix-a-flat and that stopped the slow leak.
