Default Low Tire Pressure Light

Just bought an '05 Impala SS. On the 3rd day the Low Tire Pressure warning light came on. Checked all tires and indeed did have one that was low. After bringing all to proper pressure the light continues to stay on. I tried calibrating by turning the exterior lamps on/off 3 times as instructed in the manual; light remains on. Can't reset with radio as previous owner installed an aftermarket unit. Any suggestions on resetting the warning monitor?

Thanks for any help.

Might put 5 lbs more in that tire just to see if the light will clear?

The 2005 Impala does not have TPMS sensors. The BCM determines the low pressure condition by changes in the rotational speed of the wheel. When reset, it will learn the baseline after certain driving conditions. I think the light switch method calls for turning the light switch on to off (or was it off to parking lamps?) three times rapidly with key on.

EinST, your solution worked. On to off 3 times rapidly. I think the key was the speed because when I had used that method previously it didn't work. Doing it rapidly worked the first try. Thank you so much.

In fact, if need ever arose, I'd rather contact them first than call some "customer assistance" sitting half a world away speaking English as a second language. What I have a problem with is people adding superfluous "comments to threads without anything substantive, useful, or in context for thinly veiled purposes."
Einst-Live in the U.S.A. as a pro mechanic for over 40yrs.Got about 15 yrs involved in forums all just like this one.The primary goal of all those forums is just like what developed in a solution that you got from the community and that stand as a record for others to follow you to be able to look up as a ref.If you think about CCS.................The last part of your post applies to them X 10.Think about it.CCS is loosely connected to Chevrolet as the view of us as a social site which because we offer solutions that are repairs is offensive.To time after time say call the dealer isn't a answer.Heck that isn't advise the even gets to the standards of your local yellow pages which with you own logic would lead to to that answer.So like I said,think about what your saying.................Ask yourself WHY Chevrolet is trying to "market" sort of undercover the service department services incorporating services of CAR and the likes of CCS who either knows nothing about forums or vehicles.Well the answer is Chevrolet backed themselves into a corner with extremely high repair bills and the consumer now for yrs are turned OFF.That marketing type is disingenuous.

So my comment was directed to the forum members applauding them for them helping out as a forum like this supposed to.And so no one is confused,I will continue to help within my knowledge base for the same reasons.

I an honestly sorry to post this off topic subject.My only excuse is I feel the community needed to read it.

Sorry,

Terry

I've had an 08 Silverado in the dealer several times for an electrical problem. Battery was replaced (Sears said it wasn't the battery, it set overnight in thier shop, wouldn't start without a jump) Dealer said it was the radio causing too much drain on the battery, they replaced it. The problem NEVER was "corrected" out of the 4 times I had to take it to the dealer, seems Sears at least could diagnose a battery issue. Truck was intermittent on starting even after driving 2-300 miles + that previous day, sometimes needed jump started. Shorten the story, I'd not sell outside shops any less than dealers mechanics. Only thing dealer mechanics have is service bulletins that most of the other garages don't have. That 08 was a company lease vehicle, else I'd not been in at the dealer other than it was a warrenty. Parts changers, I dunno seems Chevy has them too. I should say the first trip to the dealer was them to replace the battery at thier diagnosis

You as a "pro mechanic" should know that a lot of independent shops are staffed by basically part-changers that make do with little training and equipment. Thus, I don't see anything wrong with suggesting a visit to the dealership service department. Maybe you have something going on in your life I'm not privy to, like dissatisfaction with your vehicle, axe to grind, or something, I don't want to know. But I'd appreciate it if you'd stop polluting threads.

P.S. I'm going to be deleting this post and post #7 in a few days, cleaning up so to speak. Thanks for your PM and I'll leave it at that.
EinST,
I did want so much to let it die off right here.I do think I need to explain the CCS isn't a Customer Service Rep.They are not the people you reach while calling Chevrolet's 800 numbers and certainty it seems not trained by GM.They are a sub contractor solely here to promote repair sales for dealers unarmed by any knowledge of repairs.We do provide quality repair solutions on this forum and that is a standard that has been around for a long long time.How do I know that??.Well just do a search.

I am not polluting threads bud.I just want you to understand their membership undermines repair forums like this one.
And ends up costing members a lot of money they do not have to spend.
