Reset the system by holding down the reset botton on the dash display for a few seconds, AFTER YOU FIXED THE PROBLEM. If you don't the system might not be calibrated right for the next time you need it.

first and most important, check your oil level...make sure it is at full and is clear (not dark).

Your conditions normally suggest an electrical problem mostly seen if the battery and or alternator is not at full operating range. Try to get a digital voltmeter and measure the battery resting (not running), it should be about 12.4 volts or higher. With the engine running, it should read 13.9 to 14.7 volts. A cheap meter can be found for less than $10 and if you need to, go to a commercial auto parts store like Autozone, Advance auto or PepBoys and they will test your battery and alternator for free.

How do I reset my tire pressure light when tires are fine


My Lesabre has buttons on the left side of the dash. The one called Gage Info has a number of things like oil pressure check tire pressure heat Battery. Push this button till it says check tire pressure To reset your light push the reset button and hold for fifteen or twenty second and the light on the dash should go out and it will show tire pressure ok on the gage. Before you reset check all four tires for air as one tire could be down 8 or 10 lbs and the light will come back on. they all have to be the same pressure.
When you change your oil you should reset the oil section as well and hold reset the same as above. The oil section tells you how much oil you use over an amount of time.

Hi, I have a 2006 ford freestar, and a couple of weeks ago I took my van to ford to have my oil change(I always to go ford) and two weeks later my car i now not working. when trying to start it it read...


TPMS sensor stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Basically there is a pressure sensor in each wheel. It sends a signal to a computer and tells you if you have a low tire. This was probably not the dealerships fault as they usually check your tire pressure when they do a oil change. You should check your pressures and fill any tire that is low. They probably run at 32psi on your vehicle but you can check inside your drivers door on the sticker, that will tell you what they should be set to. If it is really low you might want to take it in and have it checked you may have picked up a nail or something along the way. Also that light will come on if a tire is too much over inflated. Good Luck

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.

How to reset the low tire pressure light in dashboad on a 2004 chevy impala


There should be a reset button in the fuse pannel. It can be used to reset the low tire pressure light , and the change oil light.
Instructions should be in owners manual , or you can google it.
Chevy dealership should do it for free in my opinion.

How to reset the computer for oil & tire presurre warnings


There are 4 key ignition settings: Off, Acc, On, Start Turn key to the On position, quickly press the gas pedal 3 times, then turn key clockwise to Start position and actually start the car. You'll hear it chime at you and the change oil indicator light will flash and disappear.

The tire light....Have you checked all your tires for prper air pressure? including the spare? If they all have the maunfactures recomended PSI. Remove the negitive post from the battery for 20 min. to rest puter. If that dont work you have a faulty TPMS on a tire need a new one. 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."

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.
