My low tire light came on in my car listed above )Limited model). I put air in all of my tires and the ' low tire' light has not gone off. How do I turn it off?
Do you

The light will go off by itself it is a real time system you have a tire pressure sensor that is not working by chance you change a tire out lately? This would be the tire I would suspect.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Joe

How do I reset the low tire light? I had a flat tire and the light gave me a warning. Now it needs to be reset and I tried the reset button on the fuse panel, but it did not take care of this.

Adjust all tire pressures to the recommended 30 psi.
Turn on the ignition, with the engine off.
Press and hold the red reset button located in the passenger side instrument panel fuse block.
The low tire indicator will flash three times, then turn off.

After resetting, the TPM system requires up to thirty minutes of straight line driving in each of the three speed ranges to complete the calibration process.

The inflation pressure is has been corrected on all tires. How do you reset the "low tire light"?

Inside the passenger side fuse block, there is a red 'reset' button. With the key in the on position, press and hold the button until the light on the dash goes out. The passenger side fuse block is gained through pulling the cover on the far passenger side of dash in the door opening area.

Six cylinder.

All of my tires are properly inflated and the low tire light will not go out. We do not have a manual. How do we turn it off?

I just did this a week ago and as you I do not have a manual. Okay on the passenger side of the driver open the door. Their is a fuse box on the side of the dash. Open that up and their is a red reset button. Now turn on your vehicle and press the reset button until the low tire indicator go off.

That should do it. I have not had a problem since then.

Mine stayed on, so I went to discount tires and the service attendant came and pulled the fuse panel off the right side of the dash and held the button in for a few seconds and the light went out. He showed me how to do it, that is why I know! I would check this first before replacing the wheel sensor.
Tire pressure should be the same in all tires before resetting the switch in the fuse panel.
