44PSI?? is that what your car recommends...


1. check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (think the switch is in the glovebox, but not sure) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

A) Check tire pressure on all 5 tires to make sure all is well in pressure land.
b) Set parking brake
c) Turn on Key, then quickly turn headlamps on and off 4 times
d) 2 horn beeps sound to signal you are now entering the 5 minute calibration mode. The User Manual is wrong since the TPM ICON does NOT FLASH as documented.
e) Go to left front tire and inflate or deflate for least 10 seconds
f) Wait for beep to signal ready to move on
g) Go to right front tire and inflate or deflate for at least 10 seconds
h) Wait for beep to signal ready to move on
i) Go to right rear tire and inflate or deflate for at least 10 seconds
j) Wait for beep to signal ready to move on
k) Go to left rear tire and inflate or deflate for at least 10 seconds
l) Wait for beep to signal ready to move on
M) Turn the key to loff to lock position - most people would conclude the reset should be done at this point.

Notes:
When you now turn your key back on, the damn DIC is still whining after all your hard work. The trick is you have to actually drive the vehicle before the TPM reset is finalized. The programmer needs to be drawn and quartered on this fine mistake. The manual should at least note this requirement.

You don't have to touch the spare other that make sure pressure is up before you start. If you take more than 5 minutes, you have to start over with the ignition off.

Good luck and keep me posted if you have more questions.

Tyre pressure warning light showing when pressures are correct


Hi, the tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. Therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced, re-inflated or the tires have been rotated. You can re-initialize the system by following these steps:

1. Check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure

2. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (in the glove box) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.

3. Now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.

4. Initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.

I have a 2006 Vibe and after having my bad tire replaced and all the pressures checked, the tire pressure warning light still is on. Is there a way to manually turn it off? Thanks


Tire pressure should be set at 32 PSI on all the tires. There is also a reset button to reset the TPMS,
To reset this system, you press a button to zero the system on the dash or through the on-board computer. If one of your tires is underinflated while trying to zero it, then you will not have a correct reading. Before you try to recalibrate the system, make sure your tires are set to the correct pressure spec.
It's under the dash, to the right side of the steering column. Slide your hand around under there & you'll find it.
Thank you for using Fixya, and good luck

Low tire pressure warning


Look under the steering wheel~way up under the dash there is on some Pontiacs a reset button. It is usually yellow. If this does not work you can try disconnecting the battery to clear the ECM.
