The low tire pressure warning should go out if you set all of the tire pressures to the correct pressure, then drive the vehicle for about a mile. You should not have to "relearn" the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) unless the tires are (A.) rotated into different positions or (B.) There is a bad sensor that needs to be replaced.

For more information, you can read the information in your Owner's Manual. Here is a link to a pdf version 2009 Cobalt owners manual. (The information and procedures are the same for 2008 - 2010 Cobalts) The TPMS section starts on page 5-64

Filling the tire to the recommended pressure should reset the monitor, if this doesnt take care of the problem then the unit in the wheel is defective and giving a faulse reading which will eluminate the warnining light.

Why am i not getting a pressure reading for my right back tire while the other three tires are showing a pressure reading?


It is possible that the sensor just needs to be reset. Any place that installs tires should be able to do this for you. If that doesn't work then I would have to say the sensor has been damamged or just gone bad. Hope just getting things reset helps.

I put new rims on my 2010 dodge avenger and now my yellow (!) keeps flashing. my tires are not low. how can i fix this


your car had tpms tire pressure monitoring system in each rim you previously had on. they did not get put on the new rims so your car thinks your tire pressure is at zero. so it freaking out. you need to get those sensors on the new rims and reset. that will solve your problem

What does it mean when the low tire pressure light on a 2009 Jetta blinks? (It is not low tire pressure, Ive tried refilling the tires)


Make sure you refill the tires with the specific amount of air and if it doesnt make the light go away you got a bad tire pressure sensor.

Page 2-46 of your owners manual. If you don't have one you can get on online version from the chevrolet website. Just click the owners link at the top of the page.

TIRE MON (Tire Inflation Monitor Reset)
This feature allows you to reset the tire pressure monitor after checking all tire pressures. To clear the LOW TIRE PRESSURE light from the instrument panel cluster and reset the low tire pressure monitor do the following:

1. Scroll, using the SEEK/PSCAN up or down arrows, until TIRE MON appears on the display.
2. Press the PREV or NEXT button to enter the submenu. RESET will be displayed.
3. Press the TUNE/DISP button to reset. A chime will be heard to verify the new setting and DONE will be displayed for one second.

The low tire pressure monitor is now reset.

My low tire light came on so I went and had air and all the tires checked but now I don't know how to turn the light off. I have had the car since 2000 and it has 50,000 miles on it but could never figure...


Hello Mattingly.

Here is some information for you regarding your problem.

The Tire Inflation Monitor (TIM) system alerts the driver when the pressure changes in one of the tires. The system only detects a low pressure condition while the vehicle is being driven. Once a low tire pressure condition is detected, the system informs the driver that a low tire pressure condition exist's, whenever the ignition is ON.
The LOW TIRE message appears on the Instrument panel if the tire pressure in one tire becomes at least 82 kPa (12 psi) lower or higher than the other three tires. The message does not appear if more than one tire is low or high, or if the system is not calibrated properly. The system does not inform the driver which tire is low. To clear this message, set the tire pressures in all four tires to the proper pressures and perform the system reset procedure. Refer to Tire Inflation Monitor Reset Procedure for service procedure.
The Tire Inflation Monitor software requires approximately one half hour of straight line driving to complete the TIM autolearn. There are several speed ranges that the EBCM needs to learn the tire inflation configuration in order to have the full capability of detecting a low tire condition. The speed detection ranges are the following:

  • 24-64 km/h (15-40 mph)
  • 64-113 km/h (40-70 mph)
  • 113-145 km/h (70-90 mph)
Each speed range has 2 modes of low tire detection.

  • Monitor Mode 1
  • Monitor Mode 2 The EBCM learns the tire inflation configuration for each speed range independently. In Monitor Mode 1, the EBCM has only partially learned the tire inflation configuration for the speed range and has limited detection capability for a low tire condition. In Monitor Mode 2, the EBCM has fully learned the tire inflation configuration for the speed range and has full detection capability for a low tire condition. If the EBCM is not in Monitor Mode 1 or Monitor Mode 2, a low tire condition cannot be detected because the EBCM has not learned the tire inflation configuration of the vehicle.

To reset (calibrate) the system:
Turn the ignition switch to RUN. Then press and hold the RESET button for about five seconds. The red RESET button is located inside the instrument panel fuse block on the right side of the dash.. The LOW TIRE light will come on and flash three times and then it will turn off.
The system completes the calibration process during driving.
The system normally takes 15 to 20 minutes of driving in each of three speed ranges to "learn" tire pressures. The speed rages are 15 to 40 mph (25 to 65 km/h), 40 to 65 mph (65 to 105 km/h) and above 65 mph (105 km/h).

There you are, this should fix you up.
Keep in mind this system uses wheel speed sensors to calculate. If one of your sensors isn't working your low tire light will remain on.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2008 chevy cobalt can you turn off the tire pressure moniter system


Tire pressure monitoring systems are not defeatable. Well i should say, not easily defeatable. Why would you like to turn it off?

Changed right front tire now reads zero on dash light is on


Your tire pressure monitor needs to be reset whenever you change or rotate your tires...

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.

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.

How do I reset a low tire pressure indicator light on 2007 cobalt


Disconnect the battery. It should purge out any problems that have not cleared out of the computer but have fixed itself (more air pressure in tire).

Tire pressure monitor


32 psiis actually low for a 3500. I have a 1500 silverado that runs 44 psi cold. The tire inflation monitor , monitors inflated cirunference. Sooooo, If it isn'nt round enough, it will let you know. Driving warms up both the air and the tire,off course changing everything again. Pressure is up and tire is bigger. Ask me not how it can tell what is going on with the tire sitting still. I'm only on page 9,000, the answer is here somewher. :-) Well good luck. I do know the above is accurate._Ned_
