Right front tire pressure was corrected but the low tire indicator light will not go out.  (Was told it would after driving it for a while.)  What do I have to do to reset it?

Hi Sandi, There's a red reset button inside the fuse box on the passenger side. Push and hold until the light goes out. Good luck!

My car does this all the time! I have a 2000 Buick Regal and sometimes in extreme cold or extreme hot weather the light will come on when there is nothing wrong with the tire pressure. On the passenger side of the car there is a fuse panel box on the corner of the dash board. Take the cover plate off and look for the "reset" button which is small and red. Hold the reset button down until you see the "Low Tire" light blink and then everything will be all done!

The tire pressure warning system uses readings from the abs sensors to measure differences in wheel speed, to see if a tire is low. When you reset the light, make sure you do so AFTER you set all the tire pressures. This way it will come on ONLY if a tire gets low.

are the batteries low in the pressure sensor monitors in the tire? any tire shop can check that out with a scan tool. Battery might need changing

Steven 2313 answer was helpful! To piggyback on his reply! First place the key in the ON position in ignition ( do not start car!!) then press and keep the RESET BUTTON DEPRESSED until the Low Tire light on dashboard blinks and goes OFF! Shut off car! You are finished!
