If the Tire Pressure Management System in the Dodge Journey is not working properly, you may have to reset the system. Follow these steps to re-initialize the TPMS.
The light indicator is a notification to warn you of significantly low air pressure or high-pressure loss in your tires and is NOT to be ignored, as low pressure affects the vehicles overall performance such as:
- How the vehicle drives.
- Increases the need for fuel.
- Tire failure.
To Reset the Warning Light Perform the following steps:
- Use the MENU arrows located on the LEFT side of the steering wheel to locate TIRE PSI. When there you will see how much air is in each tire.
- To check the recommended air levels, refer to the Manufacturer’s Sticker located on the inside of the Driver’s door.
- Then fill each tire to that recommended PSI/Air pressure amount.
- Afterward, drive the vehicle for a little while.
The TPMS warning light on your Dodge Journey should be cleared. However, if the light remains illuminated, keep in mind after tires are inflated, the outdoor temperature affects how fast the air in the tires will adjust to the proper temperature, this could take minutes, a day, 2 or 3, simply be patient and give the tires time to adjust. In addition, if the tire pressure warning light stays illuminated past a week, you will need to have your vehicle serviced as there could possibly be a sensor issue or a tire puncture.
NOTE: If you are unable to Reset the Tire Pressure Warning Light on the first try, REPEAT the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
