Question about 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan
I have changed the sensor of the tire pressure after the service man broke it when he was adding air to the tire now the tire pressure monitor light stil on, how can i turn it of or how can i reset it thank you
The thing is you can take of the sensor off they have a sensor on all the tires even the spare and If you won to take it off you look at the tire and behind the tire is a box and when you open that box there is a fuse inside of it you take the fuse out and that will make the sensor quit but you would need to do it for all the tires even the spare

well it depends, if you have just reset the tire pressures, the light should go off by itself, if it doesn't then you have a bad tire pressure sensor. If you have replaced the sensor, it must be programmed into the WCM by the dealership.

SOURCE: tire pressure sensor reset
turn the key to the on position without starting it and beginning with the front left tire let a small amount of air out until the horn honks, front right next, rear left, rear right. You must be relatively quick doing this or the ECU will reset and you need to start over. The procedure is detailed in the owners manual. For some reason the dealer will give you the run around if you call seeking this information.

Is it the "oil change req." light? Your owners manual will have the process for reseting the oil change light.
If it is "service engine soon" light, the vehicle will need to be scanned with a professional scanner.

Shouldn't really be necessary to do anything to reset it if the system is operating properly.
"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 15 mph (25 km/h) to receive this information."
"A system fault can occur by any of the following scenarios:
1) Jamming due to electronic devices or driving next to facilities emitting the same Radio Frequencies as the TPM sensors.
2) Installing some form of aftermarket window tinting that affects radio wave signals.
3) Lots of snow or ice around the wheels or wheel housings.
4) Using tire chains on the vehicle.
5) Using wheels/tires not equipped with TPM sensors."
Also, if you have the premium TPM system, the spare tire being low could trigger it, or with either the base or premium system, if you have a flat and change to a spare, the original flat tire could keep it from re-setting. And of course, a faulty sensor could be the problem.
There is a re-setting tool, but that should only be needed if the tire positions are changed (like if you rotate your tires), and that's only so that it can accurately tell you which tire is low, as opposed to turning off a warning light.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.
