How do you reset the low tire pressure light?

To reset the tire pressure system, do the following:

(NOTE!....Do not reset the check tire pressure system without first
correcting the cause of the problem and checking
and adjusting the pressure in all four tires. If you reset
the system when the tire pressures are incorrect,
the check tire pressure system will not work properly
and may not alert you when a tire is low or high.)

1. With the engine off, turn the ignition to ON.
2. Press the MODE button until the DIC reads LOW
3. Press and hold the SET button until you hear a
chime, and TIRE PRESSURE RESET is displayed.

You will hear three chimes, then the LOW TIRE
PRESSURE message will go off and the DIC will return
PRESSURE message comes back on, the check tire
pressure system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.
The system completes the calibration process during
driving. The system learns the pressure at each tire
throughout the operating speed range of your vehicle.
The system normally takes between 30 and 60 minutes of
driving to learn the tire pressures. The system normally
takes 10 to 20 minutes of driving in each speed range to
learn tire pressures. The speed ranges are 20 to 40 mph
(32 to 64 km/h), 40 to 60 mph (64 to 96 km/h), and above
60 mph (96 km/h). This time may be longer depending on
your individual driving habits. The learning process does
not need to be completed during a single trip. Once
learned, the system will remember the tire pressure until
the system is reset.

2000 Buick LeSabre: Check tire pressure warning is flashing, but tire pressure is OK

Have you tried resetting the light? On either the end of the dash on the drivers side or the end of the dash on the passenger side there is a panel that covers the fuse block. You'll need to have the door open to access it. Once you remove the cover you should see a button that says reset. Turn the key to the run position and press the button. The change oil message should flash, press the button again and the low tire message should flash, press and hold the button until the low tire light turns off. Sometime there will also be an audible series of beeps when it resets.

How to turn change oil light

iI you mean 'how to turn change oil light off" go to fuse panel. Open drivers door there is a panel cover on the side of dash board, remove cover there is a red RESET button that resets oil pressure and tire pressure. Turn the ignition key to the on position but don't start the car. Now press and release the reset button the change oil light should start to flash, now press and hold the reset button until you hear chimming hold until chimming stops then release, the change oil light should go off. If you need to reset tire pressure press reset button twice, the first push will make the change oil light flash the second press will make the tire pressure light flash then hold untill chimming stops, light should go out . Hope this helps.

My tire pressure light remains on I checked the pressure and all tires are good why is the light on

If you checked tire pressure and everything is OK, and if all your tires are the same (or at least you have to matching pairs - front and rear)
Simply reset the light. Open the fuse access door on the driver side - theres a small red "RESET" button in the middle of the fuse panel.
Turn the ignition to "ON" press and hold the button for 3 seconds. now press several times until you see the "Low tire pressue" light only. (it will alternate between tire presssure, oil change etc.)
Now press and hold to reset button until you hear 5 beeps.
close the ignition.
Drive safely.

Can't get change oil light to go off after having oil changed.

If you are getting an Maintenance Oil light then that is a reminder to have your oil changed...You will need to reset the mainteince light.
To reset "Maint. Notice" on the display, turn the ignition key on (do not start)...with engine off. select the "Maintenance Schedule' key by using the button to right or left. Using the button select the "Reset" key and push the "Enter" button. This should be outlined in your in owners manual as well. The oil pressure or low oil light looks like a little genie oil lamp. The Maint. Tire is the same concept, it's a reminder to check your tires pressure or do a rotation on them.
I hope this helps.

Low tire light came on - tire pressure ok

Because of changing outside temps this happens, just hold reset button on left side of dash until it reads tire pressure 100% again, just make sure your pressure is right before you do it. this is the same for oil changes and the like.

Traction contol, Transmission, Tire pressers sensor

I'm fighting problem #1 right now myself... I'll let you know if I find an answer.

Anytime you get the Low Tire Pressure light you have to reset it. There is a panel on the driver's side of the dash, facing the door. So you have to have your door open to get to it.You are looking for the red button.

From the 1999 Alero manual:

"To reset(calibrate) the system, turn the ignition switch to ON. The RESET button is located inside the drivers side fuse panel. Press and release the RESET button.

The CHANGE OIL light will begin to flash. Press and release the RESET button again. The CHANGE OIL light will go off, and the LOW TIRE PRESSURE light will start flashing. When the LOW TIRE PRESSURE light is flashing, press and hold the RESET button until the chime sounds."

Maint req light on

generally the Maint Req'd light will come on when it's time for an oil change. You DO NOT need to take it to a dealer to have the computer reset. Complete waste of time. I have a Tc myslef and take it to the local quick change place. Put your key in, turn it to accessory position while at the same time pushing and holding the trip reset button. Then start the car. It will reset and unless you have changed the factory settings will remain off until the next 5k miles and your next FACTORY recommended oil change. Also your tire pressure light may come on at some point as well. The reset button is in the glovebox. Once you start the car, push and hold that button to get the light to turn off. (you cant do this while driving) That light turns on if you air pressure is low, you have uneven wear in the tread of the tires and currently mine is on all the time....I put 4 brand new racing tires on (not factory tires) and the computer thinks things are out of wack but my pressure is fine and the tread is fine. I just live with that light being on.

Reseting the Lights

To reset the low tire pressure light, take off the fuse panel located on the driver's side when you open the door it should be right there. There is a red reset button hold it for 10 secs then let go and push it again which will cause the low tire pressure light to flash, then hold the button for an additional 5 secs or until you three beeps then it will go off. The same goes for the change oil light as well. Hope this helps.
