    I swear. Every two years I get a nail in my tire, the light goes off and I never remember how to reset it. Someone help a brother out?:confused5:

    It goes off every time I switch tires for the track. Hold it down when you start the car for five seconds, then drive, it resets after you drive. At least that's how mine does.

    I hit the reset button that's down by the emergency brake. Then I shut off the engine, restart it and hit the reset button again. The light usually goes off after the engine is restarted, although you may have to go thru the sequence a second time.

    Mine did it recently and from what I remember I had to hold the button down for a bit before it went off.

    I did. The damn thing says something completely different. But it's reset now. Though I have no frigging idea what I did. :D

    According to the manual in my '03, it said to do exactly what cct1 wrote.

    Hold the button down for about 5 sec, then drive - the system will re-learn the new pressures (actually, it's learning the diameter since it works off of the ABS sensors) and off you go....

    I just now got my bothersome lights to go out. The ABS, ASC and tire light wouldn't leave me alone for the last three days. Whenever the brakes were used it felt like someone was pouring a hand full of gravel into the system. Following everybodys best guess on this thread, pulling each wheel off and checking for junk stuck to something it shouldn't be, the lights are finally quiet and a drive around the block feels like it's old self. Thanks for all the input.:Thumbsup:
    4 some hours later and it's doing it again. The brakes chatter when coming to a full stop and all the lights go on. Run in to pay a bill, come back out, turn on the key and everything is fine 'till the next red light.:mad5:

    Well, it uses a dipstick, therefore...
    Thanks for the input. I'll persue that idea.

    Well thanks to goaljinky, I finally got my tire pressure warning light to go out! I had a slow leak repaired yesterday, then went through the 5 second deal, and BINGO! The light went out! (Just in case it matters, I've got a 1st Gen. ['07 Cabrio] vehicle.) Thanks!

    Reset the light. The instuctions are in post #2 in this thread.

    For some odd reason those tire nanny's seem to come on once in a while for no apparent reason.
