As long as the tires are all within 3 psi of each other ,The system will automatically reset and the TPM warning lamp will go off, once the updated tire pressures have been received. The vehicle may need to be driven for up to 10 minutes above 15 mph 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.

2005 grand Cherokee service tire pressure system


I found this on another site, it may help to understand what is happening, I also saw that there is a problem with the valve stems cracking since they're made out of aluminum and causing that problem. Here's the explanation provided on another site:

RodneyJ Answered 6 years ago
If a customer with a 2005 or later DaimlerChrysler vehicle equipped with Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) is concerned that the TPM lamp is on continuously, please be sure to inform the customer that the system is in place to warn of a low tire pressure situation, and a system diagnosis may not be required. The customer should be aware of the following: The Tire Pressure Monitoring (TPM) System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure based on the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure (the placard is located on the drivers side B-pillar).
The tire pressure will vary with temperature by about 6.9 kPa (1 psi) for every 6.5 Degrees C (12 Degrees F). This means that when the outside temperature decreases, the tire pressure will decrease - the customer should adjust his tire pressure for this decrease in pressure - please refer the customer to his vehicle owner's manual for information on how to properly inflate his vehicle's tires. The tire pressure will also increase as the vehicle is driven - this is normal and there should be no adjustment for this increased pressure.
The TPM System will warn the driver of a low tire pressure if the tire pressure falls below the low pressure warning threshold for any reason, including low temperature effects.
The TPM System will continue to warn the driver of low tire pressure as long as the condition exists, and will not turn off until the tire pressure is at or above recommended cold placard pressure. Once the low tire pressure warning has been illuminated, the tire pressure must be increased to the recommended cold placard pressure in order for the TPM warning lamp to be turned off. 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 25 kph (15 mph) to receive this information.


FOR EXAMPLE:

A 2006 300 has a recommended cold (parked for more than 3 hours) placard of 207 kPa (30 psi).

If the ambient temperature is 18 Degrees C (65 Degrees F) and the measured tire pressure is 186 kPa (27 psi) the TPM lamp will be OFF.

IF NOTHING IS DONE TO THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE TIRES and the ambient temperature drops to 20 Degrees F (-7 Degrees C) while the vehicle is parked, the approximate tire pressure will be 157 kPa (23 psi) and the TPM lamp will be ON.

IF THE VEHICLE IS DRIVEN TO REACH NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERATURE

WITHOUT ADJUSTING THE AIR PRESSURE and the ambient temperature stays at -7 Degrees C (20 Degrees F), the approximate tire pressure will rise to 186 kPa (27 psi) and the 1PM lamp will be ON.

To turn the TPM lamp OFF the tires must be inflated to the vehicle recommended cold placard pressure.

In order to properly maintain vehicle tire pressure, please refer to the owner's manual for additional information regarding tire inflation.

NOTE :Tire pressure should always be set based on cold inflation tire pressure (defined as the tire pressure after a vehicle has not been driven for more than 3 hours - and in outside ambient temperature).

Seasonal temperature changes will affect tire pressure, and the TPM system will monitor the actual tire pressure in the tire.
If a diagnosis of the system is required (for example, the lamp did not extinguish, or the lamp is flashing), please refer to service information available in TechCONNECT for additional information for TPM diagnosis. Please be aware that if the Wireless Control Module (WCM) is replaced, the TPM placard values may need to be reprogrammed. The TPM placard values do NOT need to be updated if the WCM has NOT been replaced, the TPM placard values are properly set at the factory.

What kind of tire pressure sensors are on a 2000 olds alero and are they located inside the wheel?


{: ) The 2002 Oldsmobile uses the TIM system. Here is an overview of how it works:
The tire inflation monitoring (TIM) system detects the differences in tire rotation speeds that are caused by changes in tire pressure. The TIM may not alert the driver if the pressure in more than one tire is high or low. The TIM also may not operate properly if the spare tire is in use.
The TIM system can alert the driver when a large change in the pressure of one tire exists. The system only detects a low pressure condition while the vehicle is being driven.
The LOW TIRE PRESSURE indicator turns ON in the instrument cluster if the tire pressure in one tire becomes 12 psi (55 kPa) lower or higher than the other 3 tires and the ignition switch is in the ON position. The message does not appear if more than one tire is low or high, or if the system is not calibrated properly. The system does not inform the driver which tire is low. In order to clear this message, equalize the tire pressures in all 4 tires and perform the Tire Inflation Monitor Resetting. In addition, the indicator may come ON if a low voltage condition is present.

In other words, this is not like the TPM (Tire Pressure Monitoring) system that is being used in later model vehicles, wherein the TPM sensors are inside the wheel, integrated to the tire valve. The TPM sensors detect changes in tire pressure and temperature, and sends out radio signals to the RCDLR, to be decoded by the BCM and the instrument cluster.

TPM light stays on. All 4 tires have 26 lbs of air. What is recommended tire pressure?


32 psi is the usual recommended pressure but you may have to fill the tires to 35 psi to make the TPM system reset. That's how most systems recognize that you have serviced the tires. Most TPM systems will indicate low tire pressure around 26-28 psi.

How to turn tire pressure light off.


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.

Had 4 new tires installed system blinked for 2 days on and off. now ligth stays on. how do you reset the light? all tires are at 35 psi.


It is possible that one of the sensors was damaged when they replaced the tires. If this occurred, the light will remain lit. Otherwise, after a pressure change the light will automatically turnoff after driving several minutes above 25MPH.

There is also a Nissan TPM reset tool which is designed to turn off the TPM warning light in 2003 and newer Nissan vehicles that have the TPM reset connector. Check your owner's manual to see if your vehicle has the connector. You can find the reset tool online for about $25.

2003 Cadillac seville sts TPMS reset


From 2005 STS Owners manual:
Each TPM sensor has a unique identification code. Any
time you replace one or more of the TPM sensors,
the identification codes will need to be matched to the
new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is
matched, to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the
tire’s air pressure. The sensors are matched, to the
tire/wheel positions, in the following order: left front (LF),
right front (RF), right rear (RR), and left rear (LR).
You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel
position, and five minutes overall, to match all four
tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute,
to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five
minutes to match all four tire/wheel positions the
matching process stops and you will need to start over.
The TPM matching process is outlined below:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Press the push-button ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
3. Using the Keyless Access transmitter, lock and
unlock the vehicle’s doors.
4. Press the lock and unlock buttons, at the same
time, on the Keyless Access transmitter. A single
horn chirp will sound, indicating that the TPM
system is ready, and the sensor matching process
can begin.
5. Start with the left (driver’s side) front tire.
6. Remove the valve cap from the valve stem.
Activate the TPM sensor by increasing or
decreasing the tire’s air pressure for five seconds,
or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp,
which may take up to 30 seconds, confirms that the
sensor identification code has been matched to
this tire position. To decrease the tire’s air-pressure
use the pointy end of the valve cap, a pencil-style
air pressure gage or a key.
7. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) front tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
8. Proceed to the right (passenger’s side) rear tire,
and repeat the procedure in Step 6.
9. Proceed to the left (driver’s side) rear tire, and
repeat the procedure in Step 6.
10. After hearing the confirming double horn chirp, for
the left rear tire, exit the matching process by
turning the ignition switch to OFF/ACC.
11. Set all four tires to the recommended air
pressure level as indicated on the tire and loading
information label.
12. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Programming TPM Sensors
1. Turn the ignition to ON.
2. Press the key fob lock and unlock buttons simultaneously for several seconds. The horn will chirp when the TPM
programming mode is activated. Important: If the TPM programming mode cannot be entered, check if the DIM is
configured with the correct RPO codes.
3. Starting with the Left Front Tire
4. Install the J 41760 over the left front valve stem. Magnets from Radio Shack, P/N 64-1888 (at $2.99), will also work.
They're too small to go over the valve stem cap, but once you remove it they slip over the valve stem just fine
instead of the GM tool.
5. The horn will sound, indicating the Left Front TPM sensor is programmed. Important: If the horn does not sound after
15 seconds, remove then reinstall the TPM sensor programming tool or place the magnet alongside the valve stem.
6. When the horn sounds, proceed to program the next TPM sensor in the following order:
o Right Front Tire
o Right Rear Tire
o Left Rear Tire
7. After the Left Rear sensor is programmed, the horn will sound twice to indicate programming is complete.
Programming Cancellation
1. The programming mode will be canceled if any of the following conditions are met:
o The ignition is turned OFF.
o All four sensors have been programmed.
o The TPM system has been in the program mode for longer than 5 minutes and no sensors have been learned.
2. If more then one minute has passed before the next sensor is programmed, all previously stored codes are
erased from the receiver's memory.
after driving around for a few blocks, if the pressure does not match the tire pressure for each wheel, then the sensor is bad.
