TPMS problem

We've recently started having colder temps in the early morning and this morning my TPMS light came on because my right two tires were low. Now I've added pressure to them (36 psi) and all four tires are the same but my two right side tires are still tripping the TPMS light. Is there a way to reset the TPMS sensors?

My only thought would be to air up to 39-40 and see if that fixes it. I see a lot of people this time of year and throughout the winter with the dummy light that comes on because of the cold weather. I do not know a specific way to reset the system.

Did you drive it long enough after airing up? It needs time to read. Also, if you turn the truck on and the light flashes for a long time before going steady on, it's a problem with a sensor or the system.

There is no way I'm going to run 40psi. I normally run 35-36 without problems. I drove it home 20 miles this afternoon when temps were higher and even though the pressure was back up they still popped the light and the values on the right side continued to flash.

From my understanding of the TPMS, is that it take a while before the TPMS will send the correct data to the computer to turn off the light.

Put it up to 38 just to make sure the reading from your tire gauge doesn't differ from the tpms. Then you have to drive it for about 15 minutes with a consistent speed above 20 mph. If you stop or slow down before it relearns you'll have to start over again

I'm pretty sure 35 is incorrect and it should be 40 psi. i could go check our 2011 1500 but that might be different then your 2010. I run my 2500 at 50 psi where the spec is 60 psi on the door placard. It sounds stupid but if my light comes on I have to fill to 61 psi to turn the light off then deflat the tire to 50 psi which keeps the light off.

Sorry, I didn't mean continually run 40. Just raise pressure to get the light to stop flashing and the computer back to normal then try lowering all the pressures again.

I just got my truck back from Bob Moore on NW Expressway for this same issue. My left 2 sensors were not reading in the EVIC (well it was sporadic when the would read). I swapped the left wheels to the right side and the problem stayed on the left side, so I assumed it was the truck, not the sensors (And I told them that). They replaced one of the wheel sensors on the left side anyway and said "there ya go, all fixed". Got halfway to work and the left side is out again.... ugh. Back to the dealer next week. If you get this fixed before me, please let me know what was the culprit.

The light finally shut off yesterday afternoon. I'm still running 35 psi and no problems have popped back up yet.

There is a recall for this. I just purchased a 2011 4x4 Crew Hemi and there are 3 flashing from the dealer on mine. They are ordering 3 new sensors and performed a multitude up flashes trying to fix the issue. The tech (which I trust, He worked on my 04 Hemi and 05 Cummins) said they are having so many issues with these sensors. They ran my pressure up to 45 PSI and couldn't clear the symptoms.

I've had this problem twice now after a good cold night. I inflated the tire with the warning to about 37-38 which was more than the rest of the tires and it still would not go off. I finally had to get it over 40 until the light went off then just deflate it back down. That's fixed it both times so far.

Yeah the sensors are a pain in the A## your suppossed to run 32 psi but if its cold you cant run close to 32 without the sensors going off. I usually run 36 in the winter just to keep the lights off my dash

Wow....36psi? That seems too low. Is that really what the door says? Wow. I know that the manufacturers "recommend" a certain tire pressure for NVH, but damn. How often do you go thru tires? Hmmm?

38-40 is definitely better IMO than 36, but still a little low.

Why wouldn't you run 40psi? What, in your opinion do you see as detrimental at running at a better pressure for longer tread life, better MPG, etc? Especially on the factory 20's.
I run mine at 45psi w/NO problems. And I have the 17s. Yeah, if I want a smoother, or quieter ride I could drop it down. But I'd rather pick up the extra 10% mpg or so and prolong the life of my tires.
Just a thought. It won't hurt to run at a slightly higher pressure.

Oh wait, you're running the SRT 22's? Then yeah, you are definitely too low @ 36psi. You should be running 40psi or higher, no doubt
