Tire pressure sensor 2014
 
Hi ,
How do you reset a tire pressure indication on GC 2014 ? Your help is appreciated ! Tks

If it was due to low pressure then you just need to put a couple of miles on it.

I should have been more precise ! I live in northern Canada , the temperature is in the freezing levels now , so there s a drastic change of pressure ! Therefore the sensor tells me There s I have low pressure in the tires . I m up 5k miles so far .....

If it is really cold I would give the tire pressures a once over. If the pressure is the same across all brands then the light should come on at 25 psi.

I think you can reset it with an inexpensive scan tool, but it wouldn't last very long if the actual pressure [which you can check from the EVIC] is low.

In the winter you need to air up your tires a bit...

Anyplace to get your tires filled with Nitrogen? You should see less fluctuations with Nitrogen then with air.

Is that true, or just hype? Air is after all 78% nitrogen to begin with.

and that other % is oxygen and hydrogen. I didn't want to respond until I tested this but I went from 6-7 psi change from hot to cold to 1-2 psi change with nitrogen. I haven't had a chance to test extra cold but in short, yes it seems to work.

I'll do ! Thank you for the info

I used to think the nitrogen stuff was bunk, but my '14 came with nitrogen and the '07 has standard-issue New England air..

the tire pressure varies a lot less with temperature on the '14.

YMMV
