Dodge RAM: How to Reset Tire Pressure System

Dodge RAMs are equipped with a TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) to assist you in maintaining the correct tire pressure. The warning low-pressure indicator light which appears within your dashboard or via the EVIC, indicated by a chime, should turn off automatically after your tires receive the proper amount of air pressure/ PSI. The EVIC even indicates which tire has low pressure. You can locate the manufacturer’s recommended tire pressure on the inside of the driver’s door. Keep in mind, tire pressure does, in fact, change in different weather conditions, therefore, you should ask your mechanic or dealer about the levels for dissimilar temperatures. Lastly, if you constantly see this warning despite confirming proper pressure in all 4 tires plus your spare (Yes, there is a sensor there as well); Here are steps to follow to disable the warning light:

  1. Switch on the ignition WITHOUT starting the vehicle
  2. Press and hold down the TPMS Reset button; When the tire pressure light blinks 3x’s release the reset button.
  3. Start the engine and let it run for 20 minutes. This action should reset the sensor.
  4. Drive for 10mins @ 50mph or higher. Enter a highway and drive. Preferably set the cruise control to assure this speed. This normally aids in resetting the sensor. The next time you start your vehicle, the warning should be gone.

If none of the above steps work, you may want to try disconnecting and reconnecting the battery cable using these steps:

  1. With the engine OFF, use a wrench to disconnect the POSITIVE battery cable.
  2. Start the engine and push the horn for 3 seconds or however long it takes to release all of the vehicle’s power.
  3. When all power is drained, reconnect the battery cable and check for the warning light.

**If you are unsuccessful in resetting the tire pressure system after following these steps, try each a second time. If you are still unable, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle users manual.

      You have a 2103 Ram? How did you get that so soon? And to the guy that wrote, disconnect the positive battery cable, start the engine and honk the horn…that’s funny stuff there. How many folks you think tried that?
