Volkswagen Jetta: Reset TPMS

The role of TPMS is to notify you when your car’s tire pressure is low or flat. Aside from keeping you safe when driving, TPMS is essential in decreasing tire wear, bettering fuel economy, and reducing braking distance.

Usually, the warning light should go off as soon as you fix the problem. However, most Volkswagen Jetta drivers report that the light can sometimes persist even after fixing the problem. Resetting the TPMS is the best solution in this case.
