Nope, no reset button. Once you air your tires up to the required psi, you will need to drive at a constant speed for about 15 minutes or so for the TPMS sensor to reset itself. I had to do this when I got my new wheels or you can buy the Procal programmer to disable it all together.

Sometimes overinflating the tires and driving for awhile will fix em, but the sensors are very finicky. Best bet is to buy one of these, which will allow you to change the PSI setting that triggers the sensors, or disable the sensors altogether.

Mine comes on like clockwork every time the temp goes below 20F. Go figure. No issues above that temp. Weird stuff in some of our JK's.............

is it just the yellow light or does the vehicle information system say low pressure?

the yellow light alone indicates a malfunction in the system not low tire pressure.

found it out this weekend when my remote entry didnt work, used the key to get in and the alarm went off, started the jeep and the little yellow light stayed on.

something glitched the remote and from that point on something else glitched in the vehicle.

it all cleared the next time i started the vehicle after it reset . it took about 15 minutes of off time to reset as turning the jeep on and off didnt clear it.

i origonally thought air pressure but that was fine. looking in the manual it says you will see the words low pressure and not just the yellow malfunction lght if your really low..

Tires drop around 1 psi for every 10º so say the tpms is set to alarm at 30 psi and you aired up to 32 when it was 50º and the temp drops that night to 20º your psi would be around 29 and would set off your tpms alarm.

You might air them up a few more psi. just to see if the light goes out. Also, most tire gauges are made in China and are inaccurate. So you might get another gauge just to see what it reads. It only reads 4 tires, not the spare.
