Resetting TPMS?

I wondered if there was a way to reset the tpms? Mine started flashing at me last week when we had a colder night and the pressure got down under 30 on my drivers side rear tire. I checked it, filled it back up to 35psi and its held that but the flippin warning light wont quit blinking "low" and showing me the pressure screen.

Doesn't even make sense. The tires not leaking and I assumed the warning was triggered when it hit under 30, but it hasnt dipped lower than 30 in 3 days. Still, everytime it tells me its low. I'm tempted to pull the battery cable and reset everything and see if that works.

I have also experienced the same thing but what I did was inflate the tire to around 40 psi and checked the system. Then I deflated the tire to the correct pressure. The warning light went away.

Well, I tried that and it seems to have worked. Don't wanna jinx it though. These are not the stock tires mind you, but I puffed them up to 39.5 all around. Took it for a spin to reset them and as of now I have no warning light. I was getting upwards of 3psi fluctuation at any given time, so I may just leave them here to insure I don't get anymore warning lights.

Your tires should be filled with nitrogen, I get free top ups at my dealer. Your better off not adding air to your tires. if you run normal air in your tires they can fluctuate 5psi and straight nitrogen only 1psi. nitrogen reduces the loss of tire pressure due to permeation through rubber over time by about 1/3.
