How to Reset a Tire Pressure Sensor on a Chevy

Once you’ve reinflated your tires to the recommended amount, the tire pressure light should go off. But, if it stays on, this is how to reset a tire pressure sensor on a Chevy and many other vehicles:

  • Drive at a speed at, or above, 50 mph for over 10 minutes around Carmel to reset the sensor. This may cause your TPMS sensor to reset the next time you start the engine.
  • When your vehicle is not running, turn the key to the “On” position, but don’t start the engine. Hold the TPMS reset button, and the tire pressure light should blink three times. Then, release the button and start your car. The TPMS sensor should refresh within 20 minutes. The TPMS reset button is usually located underneath the steering wheel, but check your owner’s manual for its exact location.
  • Inflate all of your tires to 3 PSI over the recommended amount. Then, deflate them all entirely. Don’t forget the spare tire, because it may also have a sensor. Once they’re all deflated, reinflate them to the recommended tire pressure amount indicated on the side of the tire.
  • With the vehicle turned off, disconnect the positive battery cable. Turn the car to the “On” position and honk the horn for three seconds. This will discharge any residual power still stored in the vehicle. Then, reconnect your battery and continue on your Noblesville drive as usual.

What Does a Flashing Tire Pressure Light Mean?

Tire pressure sensors are usually powered by the car battery, and a flashing tire pressure light might signify that the battery needs replaced. It could also indicate a faulty sensor. Either way, you should make a service appointment at Penske Chevrolet near Noblesville. Our service center will diagnose the problem and have you back on Westfield roads safely.
