Default 2011 Dodge Caravan Tire Pressure Monitoring Light

Guys, I am new to this forum and new to Mopar. I just purchased a 2011 Caravan and need some assistance. I have a TPML lit on my dash and I checked the service manual & DVD and it does not tell me how to reset this light. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks in advance... Mike

Fill all tire up to 40PSI, light will go away. and light will come on if any tire drops below 32 PSI.

I normally don't ride with that much in the tires. It'll wear the center of the tire out. I'll try 35 psi in all 4 tires. Is there a manual way to reset the light? Thanks...

You could ask the Dealership to drop the Tire Threshold for you so lights would go away at 32+ PSI.
However, The Placard recommendation on the Minivan is 36PSI, light won't go away unless you fill tire up to 38+ PSI.
On this Minivan, even if you ride with 40PSI all the time, it will still wear the outer edge first because this Van is so heavy on such a small tire. Just look at the sidewall at 40PSI, u can tell 36-40 PSI is not too much for your Van.
If you ride on around 30-35 PSI all the time, you will wear the outer edge a lot faster.

Click the image to open in full size. When I have had that problem (in other rides) - I would fill up the tires to 40PSI and then drop them back down to 35PSI - drive a few miles and problem solved.
