Manual reset for low tire pressure light

My low tire pressure light/chime/warning came on. Checked the tires and one was a little low, but not bad. Filled the tire. Light didn't go off. Checked the tires again - all ok. I know the sensors are good and so are the tires, so .............. is there a manual way to reset the warning light? I had the tires rotated and the guy at the service place said to "drive at over 15 mph for 10 consecutive minutes or more and that should reset the light". Should? Didn't. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Just drive it around and it should reset. If it doesn't, you can try adding another few pounds to the tire to get the sensor to reset and then lower it back down to the normal pressure.

Check the spare. That's the one that always gets me.

I was under the impression the spare's sensor didn't register. Only the tires that are moving are monitored. I am driving around with no sensor in the spare since I accidentally sold it with my stock wheels and tires and it hasn't affected anything.

You are correct.

This. Drive it at least 20 min. it should reset. The spare only registers when it's rolling. However, there apparently are a handful that have said their spare will trigger it on some earlier model years. Nothing is 100% I guess.

Hey mate, I too have had issues with this light on my 2013 JKR. I ended up buying a new set of sensors and I am having them installed sometime this week. I have a strong feeling the problem is one of the stupid sensors....

I've got all new sensors. Guess I'll try adding some pressure. Right now they're at around 35-36. Last time my warning light came on it was the spare that was low. Not this time.
