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
TIRE PRESSURE HOLD SET TO RESET.
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
to TIRE PRESSURE NORMAL. If the LOW TIRE
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.

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.

That signal is from your tire monitoring sensors, telling you that there is air pressure difference between tires. The tire pressure should be same in all tires.

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.

What does an ! in a circle mean with ( ) around it


This (!) symbol is your TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) warning light.
The manual has this to say about it:
This system monitors tire pressure. if the low tire pressure warning light illuminates, check the tire pressure in all four tires. Adjust the low tire pressure to the recommended cold tire pressure shown on the Tire and Loading information label located in the driver's door opening. After tire pressures are adjusted, the vehicle will need to be driven at speeds above 16 MPH (25 km/h) to activate the TPMS and turn off the low tire pressure warning light.

Why does it show the message: LOW TIRE PRESSURE


there is a tire pressure sensor on each tire check the air pressure on each tire and recalibrate the system each time you put air in any of the 4 tires or if any of the tire gets low air.Its like teaching the system on the present tire air pressure.One thing more the valve on each tire are special valve that have electronic part inside so make sure you dont replace them with an ordinary tire valve.Recalibrating shld be done on workshops with the proper tool

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.

Low tire pressure idiot light


Your nissan also has a tire monitor on your spare tire if your spare has low pressure and the other 4 tires have correct pressure the light will stay on . after you ajust the spare also the light should go away.
